We were honored to once again host Team Hybrid in our training garage for a Car Care 101 session over the weekend.

Our demo car (thanks Kevin!) was a Subaru WRX that needed some real TLC.

This really needed to be fixed!

Following the classroom portion of the program (and pizza!) it was time to attack the finish of the Subie. And attack they did!

Following our usual program, we did side by side test spots of Ultimate Compound/Polish/Wax and the DA Microfiber Correction System.

Back out in the sunshine, the results of the initial test spot showed the dramatic improvement made with very little effort. There were still a couple of deeper RIDS to address, but the swirl marks were obliterated almost immediately.

Another sun shot, with swirls still present under the tape but almost totally gone on both sides.

With that it was time to turn the team loose to get a feel for the buffer. We got Kevin to drape the cord over his shoulder (eventually).

Making sure the microfiber pad is properly primed before use.

HAHA, very funny.

Just bought my 110v2, cutting + polishing pad, and cutting compound/wax/polisher

Time to do work! (and yes, I'll put the cord over my shoulder)

I agree. I learned a lot and can't wait to put the M205 polish to work! Excellent class!
