The Best Detailing Results Begin with the Best Towels

Can you ever have enough microfiber towels to detail to your vehicle? The options do seem endless. At California Car Cover, we think we have found an excellent variety of microfiber towels for different applications around your vehicle. From the basic to the specialized microfiber towel, we have you covered.

Our most popular microfiber towel is the grey Quick Shine Detailing Towel. This ultra soft towel has a 460 gsm density so it is ideal for final finish detailing. We sell them in a pack of 3 or a detailer's pack of 10.

For cleaning soft leather and delicate upholstery we suggest the Ultra Fine Interior Detailing Towels. These blue microfiber towels are lightweight and have a tight knit to prevent linting and scratching.

Our All-Purpose Microfiber Towels are perfect for tackling dirty jobs around your vehicle or garage. The 305 gsm towels are denser than what you would typically find at your local auto parts store and are a great value. The towels are sold in a 6-pack or detailer's pack of 30.

Not all microfiber towels are ideal for the application and removal of car wax. The Premium Polishing Towels are specially designed to do just that. Each side of this 360 gsm towel has a different texture that is optimal for applying or removing wax and polish.

If you like thick and plush microfiber towels, then the Extra Thick Microfiber Towels are what you need. These towels are a thick and dense 1100 gsm. The towel is great for use as a detailing towel with your favorite detail spray. It is also excellent for absorbing water. The thick towel does a great job drying tight spaces around your car like the grille and door jambs.

Another towel that definitely soaks up the water is our California Waffle Weave Towel. This large towel is a super soft 400 gsm microfiber towel specially designed to soak up water. Its unique waffle pattern aids in water absorption so you do not need as many towels each time you wash your vehicle. The Waffle Weave Towel can be washed and dried like your other microfiber towels too.

Looking for an extra large detailing towel? When a standard 16" X 16" soft microfiber towel won't cut it, the Edgeless Detailing Towel is the solution. At 25" X 36", this 360 gsm towel is lightweight, but extra soft for detailing large areas.

Lastly, the Ultra-Thick Dual Plush Towel is a super soft and absorbent detailing towel. Excellent for drying, this dense 1200 gsm microfiber towel is perfect for quick washes and wipe downs.

All of these great microfiber towels, and tons of other excellent detailing products, can be found at California Car Cover's website, calcarcover.com.

Luftgekuhlt #4 Southern California Premiere Classic Porsche Event 2017

Southern California's premiere classic Porsche event, Luftgekuhlt #4, took place this past Sunday in San Pedro, Ca. Hundreds of air cooled Porsche vehicles took over warehouse #10 at the Port of Los Angeles. Attendees were treated to an incredible display of historic and notable Porsche vehicles, plus the surrounding parking lots were filled with fine examples of Porsche autos.

The most eye catching and fascinating exhibit was the collaboration with Pirelli. This exhibition space feature historic Pirelli artwork displayed amongst notable Porsche production cars. Other vehicles on display inside were recent award winning restorations and reknowned racing vehicles.

Even outside of the main show there was plenty of fine Porsche craftsmanship on display. For those car owners unable to have their Porsche inside the main gates, the preferred parking lot showcased generation after generation of vehicles. 

Each year, the Luftgekuhlt team raises the bar for a unique event experience. We will see what the group can come up with 2018.

LA Air Cooled Volkswagen Club Show and Shine Car Show 2017

This passed Saturday was a new event at California Car Cover. Our friends at the LA Aircooled Volkswagen Club were looking for a place to have an inaugural show and shine car show. Our facility was available this past weekend, so we let a group of classic VW owners take over our parking lot and lawn for a few hours to host the Seis De Mayo Car Show.

Classic Beetles and buses started arriving early at CCC well before the 8am roll in time. Attendees were greeted with goodie bags and donuts courtest of LA Air Cooled.

The south side parking lot was filled early in the morning with some classic VWs.

The team from Hot Rod LA was on hand doing live screen printing of the event tees and sweatshirts. 

Richeeze Grilled Cheese Truck served up lunch all day to enthusiasts.

Official event tees screened by Hot Rod LA.

The front lawn was home to a few nicely restored, maintained and customized VW buses and Beetles.

LA Aircooled even had custom made trophies for a variety of categories at the show.

 Thank you to Kurt and everyone at LA Aircooled for hosting a great event at California Car Cover. Our customers really enjoyed seeing the custom and restored VWs at our store. Hopefully, there will be some bigger and better events in the future together.
