    Waxstock Detailing Class! - Show Car Detailing with Mike Phillips at Waxstock - Friday, July 22nd!







    Announcement: Waxstock VIP Special Guests for 2016 - Mike Phillips and Yancy Martinez

    I'm excited to announce that Yancy and I are heading to Waxstock 2016! That's right! We're making the trip across the pond to visit all our detailing friends and peers in the U.K.!

    For the last few years I've always wanted to attend Waxstock to check out the European detailing scene and it's exciting to announce that this year all the pieces fell into place to make our visit a reality. I've been a member of DetailingWorld.co.uk since 2007 as a regular contributor to their detailing discussion forum and through their forum, the AutogeekOnline.net, Autopia.or and MeguiarsOnline.com forums plus Facebook I've made thousands of friends that I'll finally have a chance to meet and as we say in the forum world, a chance to put a face to an avatar!

    Schedule

    Tuesday, July 19th - Leave Palm Beach Airport for Charlotte Carolina and then to London.

    Wednesday, July 20th - Arrive into the London Heathrow airport.

    Thursday, Jul 21st - Head to Buff Monkey's Detail Shop to meet the crew at Buff Monkey and set-up for the detailing class.

    Friday, July 22nd - Conduct a full-day detailing class at the Buff Monkey Garage.

    Saturday, July 23rd - Capture video and do interviews with vendors and detailers during setup day for Waxstock.

    Sunday, July 24th - Waxstock 2016! The fun starts at 9:30am and goes to 4:30pm. I'll have two 45 minute presentations on the main stage and book signings at the Motor Geek booth.

    Monday, July 25th - Say goodbye to all our friends and make the journey back home to Autogeek's headquarters in Stuart, Florida.

    You guys should have flown out of Miami, there are at least 5 or 6 daily non stop flights to London.

    Miami airport? --> Ugh I'll do just about anything to avoid flying into or out of Miami airport. Same thing goes for LAX.

    I love PBI - it's small and efficient. Easy and fast to get into and out of. Miami? No way.

    Last time I flew into Miami I flew in from Arizona to Miami to be a part of the Ferdinand Magellan Railcar detailing project with Joe Fernandez. He flew into the Miami airport too and we both feel the same way, it's the worst airport in the U.S. and neither of us use it unless it's a "have to" issue.


    Have at it Jaret...

    I dont know, my experience with MIA has not been that bad. Far from one of the worst airports in the country. Id rather avoid time in airports all together and would rather go out of Miami and take a non stop flight from MIA to LHR than have a stop over. Also, you are probably going to be flying on American and my guess on an older USAir jet which were tired. Virgin Atlantic from Miami to LHR on a dreamliner is the way to go!
