Show Car Restoration and Preservation

Richard Lin has always been a car guy and passionate about technology. With an extremely varied background from his BArch degree, to photography, to working in advertising/marketing, to helping the family cosmetics company, he brings a unique perspective to the decision making process and artistry that comes with perfecting paint. His first enthusiast car was a 2003 MINI Cooper which he bought in Memphis, TN and drove it back to California. He currently owns a black 2010 MINI Cooper Clubman S, which is his 3rd MINI. Prior to that he had a black 1991 Acura Integra GS before they were even popular.

Richard began his career using Meguiar's products and would develop a large world-wide following. He went on to invent a popular trim restoration system known as Black Wow and a number of other inventions including the OneGrip and PC Guard. He writes detailing articles for the BMWCCA Whispering Bomb and contributes on a number of popular enthusiast forums under the name of OctaneGuy.
