Meguiar's would like to thank Bob “Max” McKee, Meghan, Dwayne and all the rest of the crew at Autogeek.net for inviting Meguiar's to both host a booth and teach our Car Care 101 class at this years event.

Thank you! :xyxthumbs

This is P from NYC. I would also like to thank Mike, Meghan and the rest of the Autogeek staff. I have to say that it was truly worth the trip from NYC. I'm glad I got a chance to meet Mike and tour the Autogeek warehouse. I learned a lot from Mike and can't wait to put that knowledge to use.


Thank you Mike

Presidental Detail it was nice meeting you also.

I woke up at 3 am today and drove 4 hours south to attend this class. I just got home, after driving another 4 hours back. I am dead tired but It was well worth it!

It was a great experience. I did learn a lot of small things to improve my techniques. The amount of technical info that I gathered today is just amazing. Another great thing was the $30 credit, I was able to get some goodies that I needed in my collection.

It's the first time I attend an event like this.

Thanks to Meguiar's, Autogeek Staff and Mike

Aren't they just great!
I know I'm so lucky to live next door to these guys!
Glad you made it and learned something.
Now if you look up the videos on what you learned
They'll show you the same thing,
So you can have video of what you learned with a better understanding.

I'd also like to say thanks to Autogeek and Meguiars! I had a great time last weekend! It was nice meeting a lot of other forum members in person and especially you Mike! Thanks for taking the time to sit down with us and let us pick your brain. I feel a lot more confident now hosting another event at my place this summer.

Wow!

What a great time! I had just as much fun as everyone else, and a huge thank you to everyone at Autogeek for rolling out the red carpet to both David Pedre and myself, every detail, (no pun intended), was completely taken care of by Bob, Meghan, Dwayne, Jason and the rest of the staff.



Where's the pics?

My plane landed about an hour ago and I'm going to start working on the pictures right now!

I take no responsibility in any poor picture quality there may be. :D


FYI, a bottle of M81 leaked a little in my suitcase on the plane and my clothes now smell of secret polishing oils! How awesome is that! It could be Tides new scent! :D

It was great to finally meet you Mike. I only wish that I brought my wife's car for you to look at. It's your favorite color: Single Stage solid white!:D:D
Thanks for all the great info. Here's hoping the Autogeek folks invite you back for next year. I'll take the course again!:xyxthumbs:xyxthumbs

I'm still adding pictures to the thread above but didn't get to any new pics today as the forum kept me busy the entire day...

Maybe some more tonight...
