    Overall the class was very well thought out. It flowed very smoothly. We were given allot of information but it was well explained and then perfectly demonstrated. We had top of the line equipment to “play with”. The eight hour class passed very quickly! It was the first class operation that I have come to expect from Meguiar's. My hat is off to the instructors.


    On a personal note, I can polish with the D.A and rotary easier than I can breath so I didn’t take a whole lot from that portion of the class but I did find the Mirka system very interesting.

    I basically wanted to know what I don’t know and after a more than 14 year relationship with Meguiar's, I have things pretty well covered now.

    If your polishing skills are less than perfect sign up for the next NXT CLASS. You will be glad you did.

    Great write-up Joe, and even more impressive that you stayed up to do it after the long day and drive home.

    It sounds like the event was a lot of fun and informative too! I wish I could have been there...

    Thank you to everyone at the NXT training day, i learned a lot and had an enjoyable day.

    I am not a professional detailer, so i have a large learning curve to get through. The training today reduced that learning curve and added to my confidence. I look forward to more training in the future to sharpen my skills.

    Thanks again

    Wow!! Seems like a really thorough class with lots of hands-on demonstration opportunities! I'm pretty sure everyone had fun and also learned at the same time! I would like to know how to use a rotary.. Maybe next time I guess! HAhaha!

    The handle you're looking at is an adjustable handle Meguiar's use to offer. I'm pretty sure it's been discontinued, but there are still some around.

    I know, Kevin Brown, a distributor of Meguiar's has at least a couple of cases of them because I I loaded them into his trailer after the NXT Tech Institute workshop was over.

    He goes by the name iamwaxman here on Meguiar's Online and you can send him a e-mail from here
