    Pictures & Comments for Advanced Class #6



    Pictures & Comments for Advanced Class #6

    Here's our training car, it's a completely swirled-out black 2008 Dodge Avenger Rental Car.

    We expect our students will turn this swirled-out mess into a glisten black ruby...














    And there might be a bird dropping etching under the bird dropping that will lend itself well to a new how-to article.

    I didn't have my camera with me, but I can tell you that we rocked that car.

    Can't wait to see the pics everyone puts up.

    Re: Pictures & Comments for Advanced Class #6

    Another stellar group of forum members attended our Advanced Class today and learned how to wet-sand by hand and machine and then learned how to use the rotary buffer to remove all their sanding marks and restore a clear, high gloss finish.

    Well done everyone!


























    More pics on Monday...

    Another great class, Mike.
    You do a tremendous job.
    Do you or others have any ideas about how to have young teens get involved?
    Just Detail 101 could have so many caring for their paint care.

    Re: Pictures & Comments for Advanced Class #6

    Thanks a lot for the great class Mike. Even though I've read a lot on the forums and been up there twice before, I learned much more and got some great practical experience with wetsanding and the rotary buffer. Just as you said, the purpose for the class was not for us to master anything but it did raise my comfort level which is the best I can ask for. As I wrote before, the fact that Meguiar's educates people, lets them use their products, feeds them, and provides extra stuff like a certificate, drinks, a notepad, etc... ALL for FREE is amazing and unheard of. It really does say a lot about the company and how you guys care about the customers' experience. After realizing this, I'm a lifetime Meguiar's user no questions asked.

    Whenever I tell anyone about it, they have a hard time believing me, no joke. They say things like "you have to give them your credit card while you're there right?" and "They must hassle you to buy their products right?" WRONG. But I DO buy the products and I will continue to buy the products because I know that Meguiar's is a good legitimate business that produces quality products and cares about the consumers. By doing things like this, Meguiar's also benefits because of the happy customers who tell others. I'm probably not going to tell many people about or be very loyal to a company that just makes good products. As soon as another company comes along with as good of a product, I'll just switch over and that's that. But Meguiar's stands out from the crowd in a good way so I'm constantly spreading the word and will continue to in the far future.

    As far as Mike Phillips, we already know he's the man. He did a great job teaching the class. He was very thorough, he did not rush, he explained the purpose of the clinic, and was extremely informative. The class would not be the same without him! And I still have yet to find a forum with a guy who has made 28,000 posts of good, helpful, informative content rather than having every other post say "use the search feature."

    I rest my case. Thank you.

    Looked like whole day of fun.

    By the way, Mike - any particular reason(s) your class using the Quanix over other brands, say Defelsko?

    Mike Thanks for the great class on Saturday. I have always been scared of wet sanding but I learned so much in your class that I am now confident enough to try it out. I had a great time. Thanks so much for all your help!!!!
