For example, in May of this year, we cleaned and restored a
tonneau cover that belonged to a vintage 1952 Jaguar
XK-120 that had just completed the 21st Annual California Mille in
mostly rainy conditions. The California Mille is an annual, 4 day,
1000 mile vintage car rally through the scenic back roads of
So it was not unexpected when we received (an approximately) 300
square foot racing car cover from the Go Daddy Racing Team. After
all, Danica Patrick, IndyCar Series and NASCAR Nationwide Series
auto racing driver, is a Phoenix resident; the Go Daddy Technology
Park is located within a 5 minute walk from our facility; and Bob
Parsons, the founder and driving force behind Go Daddy, is a valued
and long time client of RAVE FabriCARE.
When the cover came in, it exhibited the normal stains one would
associate with a car cover -- oil, grease and sandy dust; most of
the lettering and logos that are superimposed on the black fabric
surface were particularly dirty; and there was some dye bleeding of
the black as evidenced by a slight purple hue on some of the
lettering and logos.
Clearly, the cover presented a number of problems.
First, every square inch of every letter and logo had to be
individually hand cleaned. Then the entire cover had to be cleaned
of all the sandy dust. Finally , the entire cover had to be
pressed. A daunting task, given the fact that the cover was
approximately 300 square foot in size.
Needless to say, the cover cleaned up beautifully.
Here are some photos of the cover hanging in our facility after
cleaning but before pressing.
