The devil is in the details, and details are what make Kyle Clark, 27, tick. He founded and owns his mobile Xtreme Detailing business based in Fontana that covers a 45-mile radius in the IE. He mostly shines up cars, trucks, RVs, SUVs, boats and motorcycles. But three weeks ago his mentor in Big Bear, Renny Doyle, well-known in the detailing world, tapped him to join an elite group of 33 experts in Seattle.
Earlier this month this team spent a week cleaning up a paragon in American aviation history — the original presidential jet known as Air Force One. Led by Doyle, Clark and the rest of the crew restored the shine on the AFO Boeing 707-120 at Seattle’s Museum of Flight. The detailers also worked on the first Boeing 737 in production. The AFO SAM (Special Air Missions) 970 was a flying Oval Office for U.S. Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon, but now sits on the tarmac at the Museum of Flight, exposed to Seattle’s infamous climate and torrential rains.
