Had a great time Mike! Thanx for the goody bag and the pizza. I'm glad I attended this class cuz like I said before I was so dissapointed in the scratch x, and all along I was using the wrong technique. Mason's car came out great and so did Oriel's carbon fiber hood. Great to meet new faces also and good seing old ones.

At Meguiar's it's always a team effort, there are many other people behind the scene helping to make these classes a success and to these people we all need to say thank you!

I'll let you know when we can schedule some time to do some work on your car.

Yes, I have lots of pictures, I'll try to start uploading some pictures starting Monday afternoon.

That's perfectly fine, more important is to share with everyone that didn't get to attend the class the things you learned. Things like how we removed swirls and scratches both by hand with ScratchX and by machine with M80 Speed Glaze etc.

Mike, thank you for all your hard work and dedication. I had a great time, as well as my brother. We learned all the necessary products, equipment and techniques to make our cars sparkle as if they were new (if not better). My Carbon Fiber hood didn't look as good when I got it SPANKING NEW! It shined as if it were topped with a donut glaze. It shines like I have never seen before. I thank you once again for your time taken. I know we could have been roudy at times, but I for one had an amazing time and I would suggest this workshop for to anyone!

Thank You!
Oriel R.

Words can not express, how grateful I am to you Mike and your team.

Almost every day on our boards there is someone with problems related to car finish care.

Now that we have been educated we can spread that information amongst the others and hopefully (amongst other things) there will never be another swirl mark in the Lost Angels.:D

Thank you again!!:xyxthumbs

Sincerely

Mark Skorka

Hi Mike,

Are thsoe shots of the carbon fiber hood before and afters, or all before's? I am having a hard time seeing the improvemnt with the diminishing abrasives, as the caption says. Or maybe i am missing it.

i don't mean to answer for Mark, but those are all afters, if you look at the sun spots you can see the difference, its just not as noticeable with the strands in the hood.

on the carbon fiber hood, where the sun is hitting it and a small square area around it is the after, the rest of the hood is before.

We clayed the rest of the hood then used number 80 with the dual action polisher. Then we ht it with nxt wax. WOW it was such an improvement! According to the owner it looked just as good if not better than when it was new. The fibers just came right up and you can see it.

All those scrathes you see on the rest of the hood disappeared. There were hardly any defects.

With the dual action polisher, its all about technigue and the way you apply it.

If you look at where the sun is hitting it at the bottom just left of center of the hood that is where he did it. He didn't do the whole left side of the hood he did a square. You can tell the difference.

Iam glad everyone liked your car mason. If you think it took too long with the dual action polisher...man, it would take forever to get the same results by hand.


I bought a polisher. Iam really looking foward to it. If you arent really into detailing much, I would still recommend you get one. You can detail your car once a month at least (clay bar, speed glaze with the polisher and then wax) and then just wash and maintain with the quick detailer that was in our goodie bag in between and you will maintain a good look.

Some of the guys detail their cars every week (like Mark) and its normal to take 5-8 hours on one day. So Mason, I would really look into getting one of those polishers. Maybe you can still get the discount rate, coz it saved me ALOT of money. Plus you will save alot of time.

Oh yeah no doubt. I plan to get all of it. It is well worth it. With out the dual action polisher I would be still out there rubbing away right now.

Mike,

It was good meeting you and Shane. Thanks for getting me in and thanks to Mequiar's for hosting these clinics.

I really enjoyed the clinic. It's obvious that I need to put more passion into caring for my ride. The tips and techniques were very informative. I thought I was doing a good job, but I've only been scratching the surface.

Oh, I almost forgot...the doughnuts, pizza and drinks were delicious. Gotta have pizza and coke when you're working on your car.

Thanks again,

Jim

Here's a shot of the entire car, I didn't get before photos of the hood before we started working on it as the guys took what they learned and put it into practice before anyone could capture the shot. I do have plenty of before photos of the side we didn't work on, which I'll post tonight), that really show the true condition of the entire hood before we started working on it.

Here's a couple of shots...

I noticed some of those pics, awesome rides. I too have a Stang, a "Sonic Blue" 97 GT with a few mods.. And future mods of an 04 cobra crate motor and HP twin turbos.. I do belong to a Mustang club here in Florida, which we have shows all the time as well. I sure would enjoy being there with you guys at Meguiar's.. Maybe one of these years?
