    Before and After - What you learn to do in our Detailing 102 Class


    In our Detailing 102 class you'll learn the principals of dampsanding plus hand sanding and then how to remove your sanding marks using a rotary buffer, compounds and polishes.

    Then you'll learn how to work the paint up to a swirl-free high gloss using a DA Polisher to apply wax by machine...

    The Detailing 102 class will go over the meat of what the below article shares...

    Damp-Sanding Tools, Tips and Techniques by Mike Phillips


    Before


    Dampsanded



    Sanding marks removed using a rotary buffer



    Machine applied paint sealant...

    Wish you could do a detailing class closer to Greenville,SC. Charlotte, NC may be an ideal east coast location!

    We'll also have the new 3M Rotary Buffer at both classes for people to check out... might even have a few more surprises...


    NEW 3M Electric Variable Speed Rotary Polisher


    The 3M Electric Variable Speed Rotary Polisher balances speed and power with operator comfort. Remove scratches, swirls, oxidation and more with precision and control. The 3M Electric Variable Speed Rotary Polisher has a powerful 11 amp motor with 37.5% more power than 8 amp polishers. Superior construction and user-friendly features make the 3M Electric Variable Speed Rotary Polisher a true professional grade polisher.

    I get e-mails all the time asking for the Roadshow and we're willing to do an off-site class, all we need is someone to help us coordinate and then get approximately 30 people registered far enough ahead of time for us to arrange our travel plans and the shipping of everything needed.

    On the other hand, everything needed is right here in our studio...

    Well our classes are in Florida... but back in 2002 I started up a brand new series of Detailing 101 and 102 Classes for Meguiar's at their Corporate Headquarters, coordinated via discussion forums, and after leaving Meguiar's in 2009 I'm happy to say my replacement, Mike Stoops, has continued to offer the same high quality classes in my place.

    Check out Meguiar's Online for more information and I'm sure that Mike and the rest of the MOL Members reciprocate this type of networking by letting anyone from the East Coat looking for a class to go to that they can find them on www.AutogeekOnline.net


    That's a win/win deal for everyone involved...
