    Full class!



    The SoCalm Miata club members were a very enthusiastic group of people, there were lots of great questions covering every topic from terry cloth towels versus microfiber polishing cloths, how long to let a wax dry, how to remove swirls and everything in-between.

    More pictures to come!

    Hey, this had to be one of the best "car" days I've ever had.

    A HUGE thanks to Mike Phillips. I don't know where that guy gets his energy! Mike - YOU ARE TOPS! I'd love to hang around with you down there for a week!

    I thought I knew most of this stuff, but I learned so much! It makes such a difference learning techniques from a professional. Needless to say I spent Sunday "practicing"!

    (I've just GOT to figure out a way to sneak into another seminar!)

    Thumbs up

    Thanks for the great class, Mike. I learned a great deal about how to clean my car and I can't wait to put it to use.

    Any of you who get a chance to attend one of these cllinics should jump on it! You won't regret it.

    Hi tigger,

    Welecome to Meguiar's Online!

    Thank you for the kind words, it was Meguiar's pleasure to have the SoCalm Miata club at Meguiar's! I had just as much fun as everyone else.

    I have to finish a report today and then I'll upload some more pictures from the event including some of the before and after photo's of some of the cars we worked on.

    After the Power Point Presentation and a time for Questions & Answers, we headed out to the parking lot to do what we call a Walk By. This is where we all spend some time walking by the club member's cars, look at the finish and discuss their current car care system.

    Spending some time walking around and discussing with the owner the condition of their car's finish helps to generate good questions about how to evaluate the condition of the finish as well as different products and procedures in general.

    After inspecting the different Miata's at Meguiar's for the clinic, we chose Tori's Miata for Mini-Makeover.



    After wiping the finish clean using Meguiar's Quik Detailer and some Ultimate Wipe microfiber polishing cloths, we then take turns evaluating the finish both visually, and with our sense of touch to determine if there are above surface contaminants.
