    Acura-CL at Meguiar's!

    Meguiar's was proud to host our Detailing 101 Class for the members of the Acura-CL Club!

    After the classroom portion we did a Walk-by and walked by each of the cars and discussed the condition of the car and the owners maintenance plan. After looking over the available cars we chose a black Acura



    and a Rolls Royce.

    The first thing we did was wipe each car down with some Quik Detailer to remove any loose dust and light contaminants.




    Then we clayed each of the cars.

    Here's the kind of contaminants that build-up over time and bond to your car's finish. Often times you cannot see these contaminants, but after washing your car, you can feel them by running the clean palm of your hand over the horizontal surfaces.



    Clay, like the clay used in Meguiar's Quik Clay System safely removes these bonded contaminants to restore a clean, and smooth-as-glass feel to the paint. This helps you to create gloss.

    Just want to thank Mike for a great day of instruction in products and techniques. I have never experienced the high level of support and consumer involvement as Meguiars does. I found my technique using the PC was not correct since getting it about a month ago. Also thanks to Scott for answering my incessent questions with great patience. Great pizza!! I hope to bring this new knowledge to my kids in their car maintainance to show how really easy it can be with routine work on the finish. I look foward to being able to create and maintain a superior finish on my vehicles with Mequiars. I cannot forget to thank Barry for his generosity in in supplying the location and products for this training. Hope everyone has a great holiday season.

    Thanks for the great time!

    Mike,

    Both my Father and I want to thank you for the informative and fun time we had on saturday. We had a blast, and I think he really got a kick out of seeing HOW to remove defects and then TRYING it for himself. He especially had a blast using the PC (his first time). I had been telling him what a difference claying makes, and after seeing and trying it himself, he was very impressed on how smooth the surface got (on the acura). He was also impressed at the speed and thinness of you applying the NXT Wax to the black Acura in the bay.

    My dad has had a pretty set routine that he does for his car care, but after seeing how much of a difference the PC can make, he had me order one for him!!

    I also wanted to say how informative it was to see and use 80 and 83. I was a bit leary of using either one, but after getting the chance to try it for myself, I can't wait to get my bottles to try on the 4Runner!

    Great fun, and a good day for the both of us! Thanks Mike and Meguiar's!!!!


    Oh, special thanks to Scott (webmaster of the CL forum), who answered some of my questions while Mike was busy with others @ the class.....

    Guys, if you get the chance to go to one of these classes, you will NOT be disappointed!!!!

    With regards,
    Craig

    Trust me...Your patience will be rewarded...

    Thanks Mike for the great class. I learned about some other professional line of products that I have never tried. The technique is great. It's just amazing to see the scratches on the silver CL disappeared after Mike worked on it. Great stuff. Thanks very much.

    And thanks Scott for setting it up and posting it over at the TSX board.
