    Here's some Pics

    Some pics, I didn't have time to weed through them. It was tough to shoot in there. Dimly lit warehouse type place, didn't have my speedflash, so was stuck trying to catch people when they weren't moving or closeups with the flash... Sigh...

    Anyway, you get the idea... There's about a 100 pics here...

    Thank you so much Wash Solutions and Mike and Smitty for putting on a great detailing clinic. Great selection for my purchases too. Makes me wish i lived closer to dallas but unfortunately im 3 1/2 hours away.

    Anyways, thanks again for taking one for the team Mike when you were sick and all and giving us one hell of a show. I know every single one of us learned at least something from this and that is worth more than any words can be said.

    Be sure to keep up informed on any other Texas clinic cuz im sure that many of us would travel again. At least i know i would! =P

    Another "Thanks!" to all the hosts involved. It was real informative and I too learned a few things about PC technic. Can't wait for some warmer weather to put my new goodies to use.

    Hope you're recovering Mike.

    This is probably the hardest write-up I've ever tried to create mostly because as Logan stated above, the warehouse lighting, while appropriate for a warehouse, was somewhat dim for taking and capturing good photos... so if everyone will keep that in mind I'll try to resize the best of what we captured and share the class held on this day in this thread...

    Forum member Steve's aka hartgeh5s was kind enough to let us use his black 1995 M540i as our demonstration car. Here you can see the entire class surrounding his car as we begin the hands-on portion of the class.

    Basically what we do in our hands-on portion of the class is re-enforce what we learn in the classroom portion of the class, which is,

    Meguiar's 5-Step Paint Care Cycle
    • Step 1 Wash
      Step 2 Clean
      Step 3 Polish
      Step 4 Protect
      Step 5 Maintain


    In our particular situation, because of the limited time and the icy cold weather, instead of washing the car to start with, we used Meguiar's Quik Detailer to wipe the car clean so that we could evaluate the condition of the finish with both our eyes and our hands.

    Here's a few folks using their hands and their sense of touch to feel for above surface bonded contaminants after we wiped the finish down, but before we did any prep work.

    Our surface evaluation using our hands and our eyes, (with the aid of a a Xeon light to expose the swirls), revealed the finish on the BMW had both bonded contaminants and swirls.


    Inspecting for Above Surface Bonded Contaminants




    Without the Swirl Finder, the finish looked pretty good in the dimly lit warehouse, but with the aid of the Swirl Finder it was easy to see the clear coat finish was filled with hundreds of thousands of swirls
