    First things first...

    The "New Guy"



    Tonight was Mike Stoops first night as a Meguiar's employee versus one of the regulars... He fit right in showing how to diagnose paint defects and then teaching attendees the right products and techniques to properly remove them.


    Demonstrating How To Clean Your Pad On The Fly




    Explaining how diminishing abrasives break down...



    Turning the Student loose on his own...

    Re: 1967 Rambler Extreme Makeover - April 24th Open Garage Pictures & Comments

    The first thing we did was to clean the Vinyl Convertible Top. Since we're not supposed to wash cars here we're going to use the Clean & Blot method to clean this convertible top. In most cases washing with free flowing water is a more thorough way to remove the loosened dirt and grime because with flowing water it can flow off the top, with the blotting and wiping method you're basically trying to wipe off any loosened dirt.

    Note the cleaning results you see in these pictures are after the first cleaning, we went back over the top a second time and switched to clean dry towels to absorb and remove the dirty residue in the cleaning solution.

    Before
















    Here we're spraying on M7116 Canvas Cleaner








    If you look to the right hand side of the top you can see the same clean spot



    Mike and Shawn attack the top





    Nuff said...



    Remember, this is just the first pass, the next pass got it even cleaner




    After
