    Here's the Facebook Live Videos from this class.

    Car came out looking great! What a difference from when we started.

    Thanks Mike for putting on these Thursday night makeovers.

    It always nice to test out new products, get together with the faithful crew and meet and help train some of the new-comers.

    Thank you, Mike, for another outstanding detailing experience in Autogeek's Show Car Garage. Your product knowledge and hands-on experience are awesome and always bring out the best gloss possible in any finish. More importantly, your communication and teaching skills bring out the best effort and achievement from every student in the class. I know that I speak for all of my fellow classmates and friends at Autogeek when I say that it is a privilege and great pleasure to participate in your sessions. Hopefully, we can be helpful to others by following your high standards and example. Merry Christmas to you and the Autogeek team. Al

    Awesome class with around 25 people attending. Before I share the pictures of the cars, first here's most of the class, by the time we finished and took this group shot about 5 or 6 people had to leave.








    Products Used

    We also did a number of Facebook Live Videos which I'll include below. A number of people watching the videos asked what products we used to restore the paint on this car and the answer is,

    We used the SONAX EX-O4-O6 to remove the swirls.

    We used the the SONAX High Speed Wax to seal the paint.

    We used the SONAX Tire Gloss Gel for the tires after cleaning them with SONAX Multistar All Purpose Cleaner

    We used the SONAX Glass Cleaner for the inside and outside windows.





    Before everyone arrived I used the SONAX Full Effect Wheel Cleaner Plus to clean the wheels.

    I used the SONAX Fallout Remover on the paint before washing the car to remove any fallout or other contaminants.

    The morning after the class I used the SONAX Chrome and Aluminum Polish on the hood ornament and some of the other trim for the finishing touch.

    This car was horrendously swirled and the paint was hard as they come.The Sonax product knocked it out effortlessly.

    I love attending these classes mike dedicates his time to train everyone that attends for free. Everyone is laid back and super friendly. we get to use cutting edge products and the latest machines and very cool cars to work on. I don't think there is such a opportunity to learn detailing and have a good time for free. I want to say thanks Mike and autogeek for making this possible

    For everyone who wants to attend, if you are in the area stop by and soak up free knowledge from world renowned detail guru Mike Phillips.

    Great experience and have been attending for 5 years now thanks Mike for all you do for us.

    It came out great! Amazing job to the team. I got to work with the Sonax EX-04-06 on the 48 Jeepster, and have to say I really enjoyed it. No dusting, longer working time and great correction. Kind of reminded me of GG Fast Correcting Cream, but had a smoothness to it, and no scent that I could tell.

    Jeff (GSKR) looked for you this past weekend.... Sad to have missed you.

    Perhaps not the most handsome of designs coming from FMC yet a sign of the times for post-war US made cars.Some may support a love-hate emotion to the "Fat Fendered" late 40`s early 50`s cars and trucks but for me it`s a Hot Rod in need of some loving.It was shown just that by a multitude of caressing local hands.

    Another successful Thursday Night Makeover.

    Thanks Mike and Autogeek.

    I have to say, we are so lucky to have Autogeek in our backyard.

    We get to work on these great cars, and we get to play with different products and tools.

    Sonax products worked great on this car.
    Also SCANGRIP Sunmatch Swirl Finder Light is a great light...(Santa, I hope you got my email).

    Great group of people who show up to these events.

    It is getting so popular now that you almost need second car there.
