I learned the correct amount of product (1 full circle on outside edge of pad 1st time, the 1/2 circle pretty much after that) work an area about the size of Meguiars MF towel, slow steady arm movement, listening to the sound the machine made when the correct amount of pressure was applied /watching the rotation of the pad and then figuring out how hard I had to press to achieve both of these, and realizing that it may take multiple passes. I saw Mike have to make multiple passes and sometimes even go w/ a little more aggressive product. He also, on a few occasions, had to go from the G100 to the rotary as there are limitations to the G100. The rotary is not an option for me.
    Everything I learned, I had pretty much read on here, but for me reading about something just didn't cut it. The old saying "seeing is believing" would apply here. Everything was reinforced in the class and you are able to see it and then actually do it in the presence of Mike where he can correct your "technique" if need be.
    I cannot emphasize enough how much I enjoyed the class and highly recommend it. It was definately worth the trip and effort. I would do it again anytime. I regret that I ever had doubts to begin with but it took the bad experience to get me to take the class and that I grateful for.

When I got involved in the thread you are referring to above I was very frustrated the detailing process w/ my G100. I had to apologize later in the thread as I'm sure you read. I decided to make the trip to Tampa (600 miles one way) and get it figured out. It all came together once I was there and finished the seminar. I was making all the ROOKIE mistakes: working too big of an area, moving to fast, too much product, pressing down too hard at times, and expecting that it would be perfect in one pass! Well it AIN"T GONNA HAPPEN LIKE THAT MY FRIEND!

      I agree with LA, except that my DA runs counterclockwise as soon as you contact the surface, regardless of how much pressure is applied. You can all think I am crazy, but that is a fact. It is not my eyes, or a "wagonwheel" effect, or angle of attack, pad or product, or anything else. It just flat runs backwards. Maybe it is where the counterweight is attached, I have no idea. But I am getting results I had hoped to get, so I am not complaining, just very perplexed.

        That is good news to hear that you guys are getting the results you want! I have been thinking about flying down to Irvine to attend one of the Saturday classes with Mr. Phillips because as you guys pointed out that there is a lot more that you can learn in person!

I thank you all for attending the class; to show my appreciation I will give you the class special on the kit, also 15% off your purchase until the end of the month of May.
