The class was great fun and packed with a ton of knowledge. Thanks to Rick and Mike Pennington it was exactly what I was looking for and much more. I enjoyed it completely and walk out with a pad full of notes as well as my riddles answered. I hope Rick and Mike put another one on soon with the rotary involved. I greatly appreciate the time you took to answer my questions completely Mike, I will put them to excellent use. By the way this is David with the weapon that is mightier than the sword. You all have a good one hope to see you next time.

Yeah it was fun. Thanks Jarod, Mike, and Rick.
I would also like to learn more about the rotary tho, I might just take I-Car courses or somethin. Also, thanks for the advice with where to learn how to use the rotary Mike.

The class was fantastic! Mike, J-Rod, Rick and Monica did a great job! I now have the knowledge and hands on experience that will allow me to use my DA ( which has been sitting in my garage unopen for 2 years!) and not stress about ruining my paint job! They also took the mystery out of using a clay bar. I look forward to using all the tools that were taught in prepping for my next car show (next Saturday). With the help of your products (which I use religiously!) and your training, I will need to put a sign next to my truck at the show that will read:" WARNING- STARING DIRECTLY AT THIS VEHICLE WITHOUT SUNGLASSES CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR EYE SITE!!!! PLEASE USE CAUTION!!!! OWNER WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY BURNT RETINAS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dang, I wish I wasn't a rookie to Meg's as I just found out about the clinic last week, but it was sold out. I can't wait to go to the next clinic, and purchasing more products from Rick in the near future.

Thanks to all of you that came out!
I know Mike, Rick, Monica and myself had a great time making sure you had a good time and you learned the fundamentals of car care and taking it to the next level.

Thanks again,
Mike Pennington will hopefully be updating with pics asap.

First of all... Thank you to everyone who attended this past weekend...We couldn't have had a successful clinic with out YOU :D

In addition, a huge thanks to Rick and Monica at Auto Detailing Solutions for all of their hard work to set this up, and host the event for all of us. :xyxthumbs :xyxthumbs :xyxthumbs

Here are some shots from the class for you to enjoy :D

Cool cars arriving for the class !!!




We opened the doors @ 7:45 a.m. , and we had plenty eager Car Crazy People waiting to sign in

Full class of almost 60 people...We went over Car Care 101 which included 5-Steps to Paint Care, How to Evaluate your Surface, Choose the Right Product, and Use Good Technique. These are the 3 important factors when trying to create a "Show Car" finish. We even covered the basics to interior care, and wheel / tire care.


We had a few hoods for Jarod to demo clay and the Meguiar's Dual Action Polisher.

As always, good food and fun is always a part of our clinics. Car guys love to share car stories !

With this clinic being on Saturday, it left Sunday for everyone to detail their cars, so of course, the mad dash to buy product was in full effect !!

We had some banners and goodies to raffle off:db:

Overall, It was a great day in the Valley of the Sun :xyxthumbs

On behalf of Meguiar's, thanks again to everyone for making this a fun and educational day !!!!

Looks like a great time! Rick & Monica are super people -- I met them back at the Advanced 3-day course in Irvine a couple of years ago... that meeting spurred a relationship that is still very strong today -- he's my source for Meg's products -- and, for that case, the source that I point anyone who is asking about a Meg's product towards!

Also, great to see Mr. Pennington out and about ;) . Please tell me you showed the video with you in the orange safety glasses where you lean down and smile and look into the camera... you know, the one where all of us were making fun of you in the Meguiar's Irvine garage during the 3-day... I need to find that picture of Jaime and post it... hahaha

Oh, look! I found it!!! That's Rick in the background too!

Almost every Saturday unless its a holiday weekend.

There's two open classes coming up in November, one for first timers and one for forum/Saturday class veterans.

I thought there was a more in depth class. The one Joe from Superior Shine took a while back. What was that one called? NXT Detailing?

The one you're taling about is called NXT ti, the thread you're posting to is about a "Detailing 101" class.

Perhaps locate an existing thread on the NXT ti, or start a new thread versus taking this thread off-topic any further.

Thanks. :)
