That's my Magnum SRT8 that everyone is "practicing" on and quite frankly it nearly gave me a heart attack! But everyone was great with my car, and Mike ran a phenomenal class. I personally enjoyed it tremendously, my car turned out great, and I can't wait to finish the rest of it. The difference in the quality of my finish and its shine is remarkable!

Big kudos not only to Mike, but to everyone at Meguiar's for making these type of classes available. It was a great experience that I would HIGHLY recommend to anyone who wants their vehicle to look better. I'll definitely be back for the Thursday class.

Again, Mike was great and Meguiar's rocks! Scottwax2

I'd just like to thank Meguiar's for putting on these events. This was my first Meguiar's event I've been to and I must say it was top notch. Mike was an outstanding instructor. He didn't just teach us what and how but also when and why.

I used to know just enough to be dangerous; now I know enough to be safe! :)

Today was my second Saturday class and I picked up a few things I missed in my first class. I'd like to thank the Meguiar's team for offering these classes and having such great products and showing us the correct way to use them to get the best finish we can on our rides.
thanks again,

Thank you so much Mike and Meguiars for having this class. I now have a good idea on what to use on my car, instead of wasting time on products that I don't need. thanks for showing us how to use the waxes, polishes, clay and cleaners. I thought this might be a day full of sales pitches, but it was a day of instruction and training. The products sell themselves.
I now have the right tools and instruction to work on my car myself.

Thank you

Wow! Mike, thanks for a great day filled with useful information and hands on in using the right products in the right manner. You made the class enjoyable and informative for a topic that seems to elude many of us car enthusiasts!

Please let Barry Meguiar know that all of us appreciate his generosity in offering these classes. The refreshments in both the morning and the great lampost pizza just goes to show that Barry appreciates other car enthusiasts desire to make all of their rides shine. The Ultimate Detailer gift just for attending the class will go to very good use as we perfect what you taught us today.

Thank you,

Here are a few pics I took

A fun and very informative day.
Thanks again, Mike and Barry.
I want to send my adopted boy who will soon start driving (shudder) so he'll know how to take care of his ride properly from day 1.
And Todd, are you still detailing???
Thanks again.

Thank you Meguiar's for making days like this happen, Mike is a great teacher and taught me many things about the new technoliogy of your products (I'm old school compound, polishes, rotary buffers). I'm sold on the new products after going to the class.

Thanks again Barry for a great day.

Mike thanks for a great day. Your passion tthat you have for cars really came out in your discussion and demonstration. The best thing is now I know what products will really work using the correct technique. It will save me tons of time, money and frustration.
