We started with our usual classroom instruction and then moved out to the garage to put that new knowledge to the test.A dark car with healthy paint but a lot of swirls is the best demo vehicle, and if it has a large hood so the attendees can practice with the G110v2, all the better. In this case, a dark blue Chrysler 300C fit the bill.Swirls, scratches, water spots.http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0226.JPGThe surface felt rough upon initial inspection, so we grabbed some clay and got to work.http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0228.JPGhttp://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0234.JPGWe then moved onto demonstrating defect removal by hand using Ultimate Compound, Ultimate Polish and Ultimate Liquid Wax. Apparently some find this process pretty exciting!http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0245.JPGSomeone's proud of his Meguiar's pin!http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0250.JPGFollowing the hand application demo we move onto defect removal with the G110v2 and the same three Ultimate products.http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0270.JPGKeep that pad clean!http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0280.JPGOur process involves taping off a section of paint, then working the three products with the correct pads and proper technique, then pulling off the tape to reveal (hopefully!) a dramatic before and after comparison. Like this. :woot2http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0294.JPGAfter the demos, anyone who wants to give the tool a try can do so, and this weekend they lined up to do so!http://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0298.JPGhttp://archive.meguiarsonline.com/forums/photopost/data/1833/2011_06_11_class_0295.JPG
