    Re: Training Cars for the February 2020 3-day Car Detailing Bootcamp Class

    Continued....


    For those that might not know just how many tools, products and techniques I cover in my 3-day class, here's the short list....


    First day - Friday
    We will start at 6:30am and go until 6:30pm and the class will detail 6 cars. We'll cover 3 types of tools, each tool set will get 2 cars.

    This first day we focus on paint correction and ceramic coatings using multiple types of tools


    First 2 cars - Short Stroke Random Orbital Polishers - Griot's/Porter Cable/Meguiar's - using BLACKFIRE Compounds and B&S Pads

    Second 2 cars - RUPES Tools/Pads/Compounds

    Third set of 2 cars - Griot's BOSS Tools/Pads/Compounds



    Misc topics covered as we work through the 6 cars



    1. Topical and sub-surface glass polishing
    2. Chrome polishing
    3. Plastic trim restoration
    4. Waterless wash
    5. Rineselss wash
    6. Detailing clay
    7. Clay towels, mitts and pads
    8. Cosmetic engine detailing




    Class wraps up. Meet & Greet at the Marriott Courtyard Hotel just a few blocks from Autogeek




    Second day - Saturday

    I go easy on the class and we start at 7:30am. Today we will detail 4 cars.


    Extreme washing - We cover a LOT of tools, topics and products.



    1. Traditional wet wash engine detailing with degreasers
    2. Topical glass polishing
    3. Headlight correction
    4. Wheels and tires including machine scrubbing tires and plastic claddding
    5. Iron removers
    6. Foam guns
    7. Nanoskin towels and mitts
    8. Proper cleaning of canvas convertible tops
    9. Proper cleaning of vinyl tops
    10. Car dryers




    After the above, we're back into the air conditioned garage


    First 2 cars - FLEX Tools with SONAX products and Lake Country Pads + Ceramic Coatings

    Second set of 2 cars - High quality production detailing.

    By now, you will have used over 16+ different tools. Now instead of doing multiple steps of paint correction followed by installing ceramic coatings, you'll learn how to correctly use a one-step or AIO product. For this I tend to bring in normal, abused daily drivers so you learn on the type of car you will probably be working when you return to your hometown, be it your own cars or customer's car.


    Besides the above, we'll fit in,



    1. Topical and sub-surface glass polishing
    2. Chrome polishing
    3. Plastic trim restoration
    4. Waterless wash
    5. Rineselss wash
    6. Detailing clay
    7. Clay towels, mitts and pads
    8. Cosmetic engine detailing






    Third day - Sunday

    By Sunday, everyone is tired. We start at 8:30am sharp.



    1. Wetsanding
    2. Panel prep
    3. Taping off
    4. Sanding theory
    5. Hand sanding techniques
    6. Machine sanding techniques
    7. How to use a rotary buffer to remove 100% of the sanding marks
    8. How to use any type or brand of orbital polisher to remove holograms
    9. Sealing the paint





    Then we move onto,


    1. Hot water extractors
    2. Steam machines
    3. Finishing steps
    4. Any topic or technique that we didn't cover on Friday and Saturday




    Class is over at 5:00pm




    • Certificate Awards
    • Book signing





    By the end of the 3-day class, you will have just survived the most hands-on experience you will find on Planet Earth.

    By the end of Sunday, the class will have detailed anywhere from 12 to 15 cars.

    There are NO other classes on Planet Earth where you will work on this many cars and learn this many tools, products, techniques and procedures.


    I guarantee it. -Mike Phillips



    The above is a snapshot of what our NORMAL 3-day class looks like.


    AND - as I shared in the first post of this thread, I bring in real custom cars for my students to learn wetsanding.

    Re: Training Cars for the February 2020 3-day Car Detailing Bootcamp Class



    Just updated the car list. Check out the 2006 Bentley just below the 1934 Ford 5-Widow Coup.


    Try to find ANY other car detailing class where the Instructor has this many cars for you to work on. Actually this many COOL and UNIQUE cars for you to learn paint correction and ceramic coatings installation.



    The February class is one week after the boat class and everyone attending both classes will be doing a lot of this...

    Good to hear.

    If you learn best by doing and not sitting in a chair you're going to love this class. There's NO other class on Planet Earth where you not only work on this many cars over 3 days but cool cars at that.

    And - I cover every topic you can list.


    Any other class? Find the pictures? They don't exist. Find the list of topics covered that even comes close to what I show. Doesn't exist.

    I'll send out what I call the,

    IMPORTANT INFORMATION

    e-mail as fast as I can get to it as this class is almost full. I'm going to start the class at 6:30am on Friday so we have enough time to work through all the tools, products, techniques and cars.
