Teaching a class on how to wetsand paint, both by hand and by machine, and then how to use rotary buffer to remove the sanding marks and then polish to a high gloss is a class unto itself and takes an entire day.
We've had many people ask for classes on interior detailing and engine detailing so we changed the format of this new 2-day class to include everything listed in the outline on the store page which includes machine polishing on Sunday but not a dedicated day for wetsanding and using a rotary buffer.
During the Sunday class I will have a hood set-up for both hand sanding and machine dampsanding so anyone that wants to try their hand at it is encouraged to do so.
The Sunday class will go over techniques for removing swirls, scratches, water spots and oxidation using the below polishers,
- DA Polishers - Porter Cable PC7424XP, Meguiar's G110v2 and Griot's DA Polisher
- Cyclo Polisher
- Flex 3401 Polisher
- Rotary Buffers
I would add that in all the years I've been teaching wetsanding, both hand sanding and machine sanding, after the students go learn what's involved the most common comment I hear is they're never going to do it.
So I'll show the basics of hand and machine sanding and anyone that's interested can try it themselves but again, to do the topic justice it really needs to be a dedicated class for the entire day.
