    Advanced Class #1 - Pictures & Comments




    Advanced Class #1 - Pictures & Comments
    Meguiar's Car Care 201
    Saturday March 22nd, 2008


    This is our first Advanced Class coordinated through our forum and building on the foundation laid by our Car Care 101 Classes since 2002

    These classes are limited to approximately 15 people to keep a high Instructor to Student ratio. There are 3 more Advanced Classes scheduled for this year, anyone interested can reply to the sign-up threads for these classes when they are posted and then students are picked using an electronic lottery system.

    Here's the schedule for the rest of the year.

    Look for pictures and comments from this first class next week!

    While the class starts on Saturday, Nick's flight arrived early so we took a tour of Car Crazy Studios then Meguiar's Corporate Office where Nick had a chance to meet Barry and then later for lunch we went to BJ's Pizza in Balboa Beach and then a walk down the pier.







    And in the spirit of our sunny SoCal weather we toured around in a full convertible soaking up the warm!

    We had stellar group of enthusiasts at Meguiar's for our Advanced Car Care 201 Class today! We hope everyone that attended had as much fun as we did and came away from the class with an increased knowledge of the proper methods for removing serious paint defects and restoring a show car shine using hand and machine sanding techniques as well as the rotary buffer to remove the sanding marks and restore a show car shine!


    Here's our class, reading willing and eager to learn.



    Barry stopped by and answered questions and shared a few car guy stories!



    Mike Pennington has everyone's attention!



    More pics on Monday!

    Nick looks more bothered and annoyed then a person having a good time. I would be thrilled to have that opportunity!

    Jet lag?

    Many thinks to Meguiar's, Mike Pennington and Mike Phillips inviting us for the very first advanced class, and yes! class was awesome.
    M105 was very impressive, totally different from 84/85!

    I'm very fortunate to learn from the best in business!

    Thank you to all, I can't say enought thanks to Meguiar's for putting on these classes for free no less. Mike and Mike you made this class very informative and easy to enjoy. I am really looking foward to the Advanced Part 2 class, ha, ha. I can't make it down for the night class (to far to drive) But I would be up for one more class on removing damage to your paint once the car is many years old. I know I now need a rotary buffer, and I think I can get past the fear of using one on my own car. I really learned a lot and even my wife said she learned a lot. I am sure she knows more than anyone in our club on how to use a rotary buffer (even if she didn't get splatered like all of us). Even with Mr Meguiar stopping by I think the class was just about long enough, maybe another hour longer would have been better. It was really nice to meet Mr Meguiar in person. As a matter of fact it would be nice if he could come by for every advanced class, just kidding I know he is very busy. Well thanks again and hope to see you guys again.
    Drive it before we are out of gas.

    All I can say is Wow!!! What a great day. Even Barry showed up for a brief visit with some great experiences that he shared with us.

    Thanks to the team "Mike" (Pennington & Phillips). Very impressive class with great information to take our skill level to a higher place.

    I have never considered color sanding and am always in awe of people that take on that challenge, but after this class I can see myself taking some baby steps on my daily driver.

    The M105 applied to those sanding marks were no match. After a few passes with a wool pad the finish looked like a mirror. It was hard to believe what that one product did to a scoured finish.

    I will be placing an order for Unigrit sandpaper and M105 as soon as ADS replenishes its stock.

    Thanks again "Mike's" and good luck to the next lucky group that get to go to this venue.
