Thanks Mike again for a great Saturday!

I attended an open class last November and this time around picked up even more. The crazy thing is now when I look at cars I'm aways looking for swirls.... I hope you get paid based on commission, below are all the Meguiar's products I've bought since November, well, everything except for the 4 purple bottles.

The only bad thing is that now I want to sell my white and silver cars and buy black ones. I've learned my lesson about white paint :)

Mike,

I must thank you endlessly for another rewarding class. It was great to be in a class that had some veterans and professional detailers to get more perspectives. This was my second class I attended. After the first class, I went out and purchased a G-100. The second class gave me more detail on how to use my new tool. This time, I paid much more attention to the professional line and also techniques.

It's extremely worthwhile to take a class with an instructor that brings such enjoyment, passion and borderline fanaticism :) into the profession. It makes enthusiasts like myself really appreciate the art car surface care.

Thanks again to Meguiar's and especially Mike Phillips for all your hard work in putting together these classes.

PS. As an enthusiast, I aspire to have my vehicles glow like Orange Mike's PT Cruiser....WOW!!!! :bow

What a great class today! Thank you Mike, John, and Meguiar's for the show! I went to a Wednesday open garage about 5 months ago, so with the 2 classes I've learned A LOT - plus the goodie bag was a huge plus :)

I finally bought a PC and placed a decent order today to include M80 and M83 and now I feel ready to tackle my swirled-out finish and get my car looking RED again.

:xyxthumbs

I have to go out of town this week though, so I won't be able to get to it until next weekend at the earliest :mad:

Mike and John,

Thanks again for rewarding class. I went to a Saturday class a few years ago and I'm amazed how much I have learned today (or more precisely relearned). It was helpful to keep up and refresh my memories of Meguiar's new products. Your depth of knowledge and enthusiasm never seizes to amaze. It's that enthusiasm that keeps me smiling while I'm detailing cars, it's addictive. As always, you are an irreplaceable asset to the detailing community. Thank you once again and I look forward to joining upcoming events.

thanks mike and jon

todays class was great. i never realized how dedicated meguiar's is to its customers. what other company gives us a full day of classes, pizza, donuts, and a goodie bag for free. Mike you really made the material fun and interesting. thanks for all the tips you gave me on fixing up my swirled car. as soon as i have time my car is getting some much needed tender love and care, with the new skills that i learned today.

thanks again

Mike, thank you so much for everything today! sorry I arrived late, got 5 hours of sleep, overslept, and then 5 freeway traffic didnt help much either. Thank God my manager let me come home early!

This has to be the 5th+ class I have attended and by far iit has been the most rewarding.

:eek: <--- was my exact expression when I picked up my goodie bag, was about to leave, and someone (sorry didnt get your name) told me I needed to pick two items from the cabinet! It was a tough choice but I picked the wheel cleaner and the scratch x to add to the DA, M80, MF towels, pad kit, clay kit and quick detailer I submitted an order for!

This class finally convinced me that I had enough knowledge to start working on my own car. Wish me luck, haha.

Its funny you brought up the topic about us "young guys under 30" because it is exactly what I intend to do with the stuff I just bought! It sure wont hurt to have a little side job for some extra change.

thanks again Mike! you are my hero! :xyxthumbs

Hi Mike and John,

I want to thank you both for your time for the class at Meguiars on Saturday. The class was great!!! I can wait to try some of the products and techniqiues with the G100 on my cars. I learn alot yesterday. I know that Meguairs makes great products, but the hands on demostration proved the Meguairs make superior products.

Mike did an excellent job of starting the class with a little history and the different products line and then the hands on demostration. Again I want to thank Mike, John and Meguairs for the class. I look forward to attending more classes in the future.

Meguiars Fan,

Big Ed :bigups

WOW !!!!!

I want to thank Meguiar's for giving me the opportunity to attend this class and enhance my car care knowledge. At first I thought that this was all for marketing, but I was wrong, Meguiar's really want you to learn on how to take car of a car. I'd been buying Meguiar's products for a long time, but now thanks to the detailed and fun class conduced by Mike, I can really take 100% advantage of these wonderful products to care and protect my car. I was surprise of Mike's knowledge and how clearly answered all my questions (and English being my third language, that was a PLUS)!!!....

Pizza was great, the gift bag definitely another plus. It was really a great experience...

Thank you so much Mike and John....


Looking forward to assist more classes on the future :bounce ...



PS: Next product that Meguiar's needs to produce is: Mike in a bottle....:laughing :laughing

I said that they should produce a machine that automatically details your whole car in an instant! or a clone of Mike!

but I guess the G100 will suffice in replacing my lack of elbow grease supply!

Mike, one question... by when should be expect to have the products we ordered? I cant wait to detail my car... :dp:

I enjoyed my first class with you!

You are a class act. Thank you for time and the wealth of knowledge that you shared with us. You got me all excited to try some of Meguiar's new products on my cars.

Keep up the good work.

Mike,
Thank you for sacrificing a Saturday and time with your family to educate me in automotive detailing. Your are a true professional. I really appriciated not only the demostration, but the wealth of knowledge about why our cars look bad in the first place. I have ordered a G100, plastX, clay, M80, M83, pad set, and will continue to use Meg's products. If Meguiar's knows anything they will hang on to your for dear life.

We just picked up our memory card reader today, give us some time to catch-up on the forum and we'll post what we have. We didn't get a lot of pictures because we were pretty busy with the class but we'll post what turned out. :xyxthumbs

Hey mike, looking forward to seeing the pics from the class. I wanted to ask you, are you ever going to do a class session on how to master a rotary, i would be very interested. I started working on my girlfriends ten-year old corolla, which is terribly oxidized, and using the pc on it is an incredible amount of work. I can get the paint to shine, but there is still some deep water etching that i cant remove, i know a rotary would handle the defects real well. thxz again for the great class.

Yes. Currently can't find the memory stick with the pictures... :(

First we left our card reader 100 miles away, then we mis-placed the memory stick with the pictures. Out of about 150 or so classes in the last 3+ years, this is the first time we've had this trouble so if you can, cut us some slack and we'll keep looking for the memory card.

Thanks! :xyxthumbs

Those a great before and after pics, you can really see an improvement. Still haven't had time to do the whole car yet, hopefully this weekend, since its a long one.
