The products in that section look like the Marine line, followed left-to-right by Mirror Glaze, Detailer, and Consumer.

Was definitely a great class with alot of good knowledge. Most of it is on the board but actually doing it while someone who knows what to do is alot more helpful. The practical application part was very, very, helpful. Look foward to next time.

What's the thumb technique?

Superior Shine

The thumb technique is a very difficult to master technique of depressing of the nozzle with ones thumb to allow tire dressing product to come out of the can and onto the tire.

Please do not attempt this procedure if you lack anything less than years of experience and nerves as tough as steel!
