    Detailing Class - Frequently Asked Questions

    Detailing Class - Frequently Asked Questions



    What time do the Saturday and Sunday classes start?
    • Classes start at 7:30am
    • Donuts and coffee are served starting at 7:30am
    • From 7:00am to 7:30 you have time to,
    • Arrive
    • Park your car
    • Stretch your legs
    • Use the powder room
    • Meet and greet fellow forum members
    • Check out the rides
    • Check out our training facilities
    • And enjoy some hot coffee and fresh donuts

    Please respect everyoneís time and arrive at 7:30am and have some fun, maybe do some networking before the class starts.




    What time does the class end?
    The class officially ends each day at 5:30pm.


    Can I work on my own car?
    For both classes we will have a rental car to practice on in most cases. Weíll do our best to have a black, swirled-out rental car. At the end of the class on both Saturday and Sunday, (after 3:00pm), if thereís time and room then the Instructor is usually very willing to let people work on their car, we just have to play it by ear. Our Thursday night "Open Garage" classes are dedicated for working on your own car, not the Saturday classes primarily due to time constraints.


    Can I buy products at the class?
    You can place your order and redeem your store credit. On Saturday, if time allows for staff to pull orders then you can get your product that day, if not your order will be shipped first thing Monday morning.


    Will I get a refund if I cancel at least 24 hours before the class date?
    If you notify us within 24 hours of the class you will get a refund.


    Will I get a refund if I donít show up?
    If you notify us within 24 hours of the class you will get a refund.


    Can I come late?
    No. If you canít make the class on time itís really better to pick a date when your schedule is clear and attend on that date.

    Can I leave early?
    Yes, but itís better if you clear your schedule and attend on a date where you can attend the entire class.


    Can I skip the Saturday class since Iím already a world famous Detailer?
    No.


    Will I get a certificate?
    Yes.

    Do I need to bring a lunch?
    If you have any special nutrition requirements or specific preferences then you are encouraged to bring your own lunch. We will provide cold soda pop, water and pizza.

    Do I need to bring my own chemicals?
    No. We will provide all tools and chemicals

    Can I take pictures?
    Yes.

    Can I take videos?
    No. Violators will be put to death live on the Internet and all their earthy belongings sold on eBay.


    Can I bring a friend?
    If they register and pay for the class.


    Need help getting signed up for the next class? Simply call,

    1-800-869-3011

    And our friendly customer care staff will help you and make it easy.

    Re: Detailing Class - Frequently Asked Questions

    For each class I created a sign-up thread to announce each next class.

    In these threads I tend to post a LOT of pictures of the people who attended the previously class in action. I also post their first-hand testimonies.


    Anyone interested in attending a class this year, click the link below and look at the pictures and read what others have to say...


    Sign-up: January 25 & 26, 2014 Detailing Boot Camp Class


    More pictures here....

    Mike Phillips's Detailing Boot Camp September 28th & 29th


    And here....

    Mike Phillips's Detailing Boot Camp May 4th & 5th



    The last two classes were last year BUT there's TONS of pictures showing you what you get to do. That's kind of the point of the thread.

    Why yes, of course...

    From the registration page here

    Tools, tools....and more tools!



    Mike Phillips has a saying: "If it has paint, it gets polished!" Polishing by hand simply isn't effective (who wants to do it anyway?) with modern clear coat finishes, which is why we instruct our students to work by machine! When you finish Detailing Boot Camp, you'll be well versed with every dual action and rotary polisher available, including but not limited to:
    • Flex PE8 Kompact Precision Rotary Polisher <--NEW
    • FLEX XC3401 Forced Rotation Dual Action Polisher
    • FLEX PE14-2-150 Rotary Polisher
    • Rupes LHR 15ES Random Orbital Polisher
    • Rupes LHR 21ES Random Orbital Polisher
    • Rupes LHR 12E Duetto Random Orbital Polisher - ALL NEW
    • Rupes LHR 75E Mini 3 Inch Polisher - ALL NEW
    • Porter Cable 7424xp
    • Griot's Garage 6 Inch Random Orbital Polisher
    • Meguiars G110v2 Dual Action Polisher
    • DeWalt DWP 849X Rotary Polisher
    • Makita 9227C
    ....and a whole lot more!



    While machine polishing is a huge part of the Detailing Boot Camp, Mike Phillips also covers topics such as:
    • Steam cleaning (Dupray Hill Injection Steam Cleaner)
    • Carpet extractors (Mytee)
    • Convertible top care
    • Proper washing & drying
    • Machine applying a paste wax, liquid wax and cleaner/wax
    • Paint, wheel, and glass coatings
    • Leather cleaning & conditioning
    • Foam Guns
    • Iron X
    • Nanoskin Autoscrub Pads, Towels Mitts
    • Glass polishing


    Plus if you click the link below you'll see more pictures of people and what you get to do at our classes than any other class anywhere in the world.

    Sign-up: May 2014 Detailing Boot Camp Class - Saturday May 3rd & Sunday May 4th



    And more first hand testimonies from people that have attended our classes than you'll find anywhere else on the net...

    Testimonies for Autogeek's Detailing Boot Camp Classes


    And these testimonies are just a portion of what's on the forum that I've taken the time to assemble in one place.



    Our classes are held the SAME time every year...

    Here's some pictures I posted of the classroom being set up for a past class.

    The products and pads tend to change as we add a lot of the newest pads and products to the class as they are introduced to the market but the BIG IDEA is you get to use a LOT of tools, pads, and products...













































    I'll add some pictures of the new products introduced since I took the above pictures that we will be using at this first class of the year. Including,

    Black Label Line
    Wolfgang Uber Compound
    Rupes Duetto
    Rupes Mini
    Meguiar's Xtra Cut Microfiber Cutting Pads
    Meguiar's D302 DA Microfiber Polish

    Re: Detailing Class - Frequently Asked Questions

    The week before the class I always send each person attending a personal e-mail and in the e-mail I strongly recommend everyone get a good nights sleep on Friday so they are well rested and ready to go on Saturday.

    I never have to worry about telling people to get a good night's sleep on Saturday because I already know they are going to sleep good after the first day in class.
