Mike, thanks for the informative session today. :xyxthumbs

Maybe I will get off my lazy bottom and detail my car now that I know the "correct/best" way to do so. :db:

Mike - thanks for all your work and 'detailed' presentation. I have attended several of your classes, and have learned something at each class. Sometimes it is a detailer trick of the trade, sometimes it is advice on improving my skills. But even if it were only a means of my keeping up to date on Meguiar's new products, the class would still be extremely useful and informative! The opportunity to purchase demonstrated products is just icing on the cake.

The only suggestions I would have would be to omit the opening video comercial and use the time on product discussion, and maybe a use more comprehensive order list for buying product - I forgot to order some M21 because it wasn't spelled out on the list, and I overlooked it in the catalog.

Thanks again for your time and expertise, and thank you to Meguiar's for hosting this valuable service.

Thanks Mike for having us over.

I think this was my fifth class, and I enjoyed this one as much as the first.

I was just thinking that I started out using Meguiar's products since I bought my first car in 1984.

I first used the cleaner wax in the red bottle, and then graduated to #7 and #26 when I really got into detailing.

When Gold Class came out, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. It leaves such a beautiful, deep finish.

When NXT came out last year, I started using it. Love the slick finish and how easy it is to remove.

If I hadn't of been at the class, I wouldn't have know that M21 was released. I guess I missed it when you guys launched it.

I ordered it and look forward to seeing the results.

We're glad you made the drive and we're glad you enjoyed our class! You're the guy who won the bottle of NXT Car Wash for "Long Distance Award" correct?

:( Mike: Sorry I missed Saturday's Detail Day, but unforseen circumstances came up. By reading all the mails, looks like everyone had a great time and enjoyed working with the Meguiar's products. Thanks so much for all the hard work you do for the Clubs. Hopefully, when I reserve the spot for next year's Detail Day , I will show up.

Best regards,
Tom
VP Mercedes-Benz Club, San Diego Section

Actually that was me. :coolgleam Mike DOES live down the street from me, but he was in Irvine that day. He had a head start. ;)
