    Doing a Test Spot on a Boat - Video Reveal

    Doing a Test Spot on a Boat - Video Reveal

    Here's a video - click on the picture to watch






    Here's the section I'll do my Test Spot

    ALWAYS do a Test Spot before starting on the boat. Make sure you can make one area look GREAT before doing the rest of the boat.

















    Will be doing a Facebook Live video at 2:00pm Eastern Time today revealing the results.

    Re: Doing a Test Spot on a Boat - Video Reveal

    So sad to see no interest in this?


    In a few minutes I'll be doing a Facebook Live video reveal of the 26' Searay if anyone is interested...


    Here's the section I'm going to do the test spot to BEFORE - so those holograms were in the boat when it arrived.





    On the upper area you can see rub marks








    I'm the ONLY guy that teaches a real boat class and the only guy that documents the before and after condition.







    Here's machine sanded...











    Here's after using the new RUPES LHR19E Rotary Polisher







    And after I hit the submit button for this post I'll walk out and share a Facebook Live video to my facebook page showing the final results.






    RUPES tools I used....




    Hate to say but it's true...

    Amazing results Mike! I can’t imagine how the boat owners are going to react when they see the compete turnaround.

    The final results start and finish (no pun intended), with the abrasive technology.

    Technique is important but the person doing the work is not touching the paint, the abrasives are.

    I hope all goes well for both outside and inside.

    I know some of you get on Facebook and some of you don't.

    Fact is, it's faster and easier for me to share a video on my FB page than on the forum.

    So if you want to follow along, I'll be sharing some videos today and tomorrow showing all the action as we work through both boats.

    the test spot on the back boat looked awesome. I said to myself, noway is that blue boat going to look good next to the black boat. you proved me wrong. that blue boat is a winner. love the shine & love the color, great work. and yeah I can see you did the motor's to.

    Doing a Test Spot on a Boat - Video Reveal

    BOOM!


    Class is over!




    Started at 7:00am and it's now 5:20pm. Saturday class we started at 7:00am and finished around 6:00pm! 2 full days of solid hands on boat detailing! Both boats came out absolutely phenomenal.


    We're getting ready to shut down the show car garage and set the alarm. Before I go I'm going to shoot a Facebook Live video just to show the two boats and how they look.

    The garage is an absolute mess but luckily, Andre says he'll stay late and clean it up.



    To everyone that attended this class, I'll send you the link to the pictures and comments thread I'll start tomorrow so you can share your experience. Thank you for your trust in my name and the Autogeek name to have travelled to Stuart, Florida and endured 2 full days of a lot of hard work but also a LOT of fun! Plus.... new friends!
