    3-Day Hands-on Detailing Class - Indianapolis Motor Speedway - Friday, Saturday and Sunday October 7th, 8th & 9th





    Do you want to learn how to detail cars!

    Or

    Would you like to take your current knowledge and skill level to a higher level?


    Instead of reading hundreds of how-to articles or watching hundreds of YouTube videos why not simply get it all figured out in three fast-paced, action packed days with me Mike Phillips and my friends at SONAX, FLEX and Dr. Color Chip?

    I've been teaching people the craft of professional car detailing and specifically, the art of polishing paint since 1987! As long and usually longer than anyone still breathing today.

    I make learning fun and easy!

    There is no droning on and on and on for hours sitting in a chair in my classes. No way!


    My classes are EXTREMELY hands-on! In fact, I'm the only detailing instructor that documents exactly just how hands-on my classes are with full write-ups (written by me) and with hundreds of pictures showing my students working on cars... not sitting in chairs. Just do some searching on the Internet and you'll see.

    Hotel recommendation



    New class location
    Last year they recommended the Holiday Inn Express Northwest because it was the closest to where last year’s work shop was located. Because this year the class is being held at the Indy Speedway there are several choices both downtown and Northwest of the Speedway.


    Here are a few hotel options within 5 miles from the Indy Speedway

    Marriott Indianapolis Downtown
    350 West Maryland Street
    Indianapolis, IN 46225

    Courtyard Indianapolis at the Capitol
    320 North Senate Avenue
    Indianapolis Indiana 46204

    Hilton Hotel
    120 West Market Street
    Indianapolis, IN 46204

    5 miles away


    Embassy Suites by Hilton Indianapolis Downtown
    110 West Washington Street
    Indianapolis, Indiana, 46204

    This just makes me sad. Almost makes this affordable for me, which in turn, just makes me sad.

    This was already a great deal for such a priceless opportunity & now its almost unmissable for anyone within a thousand mile radius. I can't understand why anyone wouldn't jump at the chance to be a part of this . . .
