    2003/2004 Ford Mach I Detail Day at Meguiar's

    Today Meguiar's is proud to host our Detailing 101 class for the 2003/2004 Ford Mach 1 owners.

    Here's April using some Quik Detailer to remove dust shortly after arriving,



    The young owner of this Mach 1 drove up from San Diego. While in this picture his car's finish looks pretty nice, remember... pictures can be deceiving,



    Here's a close-up of what it really looks like!



    Meguiar's detailing classes are becoming so popular, that the owner of this beautiful Mach 1 drove all the way from Texas to be here with us today!

    Hey Mike,

    Thanks for the terrific day and great pizza!!! Thought you would like that. Same goes for the donuts.

    I found all the info very useful and particularly the use of clay - I just never would have thought about putting clay on the paint. I really like the fact that everyone had the opportunity to try all the products and see how well they work.

    Can't say enough. Great job!

    Best Regards,

    04ShadowShaker

    Aw, living in Hawaii, I miss events like this! Then again, Hawaii does have sunshine for most of the year.

    Did anyone show up with an Azure Blue Mach1? I'm curious to see what other Azure Blue Mach1's look like with Tech Wax.

    Thanks,

    Reid

    Like this one?



    We didn't have a chance to detail this car at this clinic. The focus of the clinic now a days is to pick out one or two demonstration cars and show the class members how to work on their own cars by teaching them how to work on the demonstration car.

    Hello Mike,

    Thanks again for letting me join the Mach I group. I learned alot. Especially about taking care of small scratches. The buffer did a really good job on those!!

    Keep up the good work. I'm sure there's lots more to learn.

    Thanks again.

    Hi Zman,

    Welcome to Meguiar's Online!

    I'm glad you could make it, the Mach 1 clinic was a fun clinic, by the end of the day I wanted to buy a Ford Mach 1! (Don't tell my dad, we have this Chevy versus Ford fight going on!).

    Did you get a chance to look at the section I polished out with the ScratchX?

    The reason I ask is because everyone there saw that the section I applied the ScratchX too, I was able to remove all but a few of the deepest scratches.

    But alas, I have no pictures to back it up. I'm still trying to find out if anyone that was there captured some after photos of the ScratchX section.

    Check out this thread,

    The Photo in the article

    Here's the picture he's talking about,



    I can appreciate your comment that you liked the section I used the PC on, but I would sure like to find a picture of the section I used the ScratchX on, or another person’s testimony to what they saw with their own eyes.

    Mike,

    I was there to see all three steps with Meguiars 89 and ScratchX and the other one that I can't think of right now. I went out and purchased some ScratchX that same day. I'm also looking into getting that Portal. I need to place my order with Ben soon.

    I thought Ben took a couple of before and afters??

    You better be careful about those Fords.... I know how that Chevy and Ford thing can get out of hand...

    Thanks again

    Mike - Yeah, that's the color. Too bad. And that poor Mach looks like it could've used some Tech Wax.

    rstaaf - Thanks for the links! I think it was the second link with the good before and after that made me want to use Tech Wax. I think I've been looking at too many detailed cars to decide what kind of look I want. Arrrghhhhh!!!!!
