    Production detailing is the bread and butter of the detailing business because there is a larger population of people that want their daily driver washed and waxed as compared to the number of people that want a show car finish on a special toy. You'll learn how to do both styles in Mike's class and you'll learn how to reduce steps and time while maintaining pro-grade results.

    Great news! Will likely sign up for this one. Summer weekends in Wisconsin are precious... so there is always something competing for your time. I think I can make this though! Woo hoo!

    Re: Autogeek's 2 Day Roadshow Detailing Class at Lake Country Pads in Oconomowoc, Wisconsin - August 12th & 13th

    Just to add...


    The classes here at Autogeek always sell out and usually we have people that want to get in at the last minute and if the class if full we have ask that they sign-up for the next class. The class coming up next weekend sold-out a month ahead of time.


    The class in England last year sold out as did the Roadshow class at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. So if you want to attend the class at Lake Country Pads shop then clear your schedule, make your plans and get signed-up.

    It will be fun and educational and like all my classes you'll get the most hands-on time out of any class on planet Earth. I guarantee it.

    Wow.. I never thought you guys would venture up to WI. But joining up with LC makes a lot of sense. Oconomowoc (pronounced Oh-CON-Ah-Ma-Walk) is a very nice area. I won't be able to attend but it would be great to meet everyone.

    Welcome to Wisconsin Mike. I'm a little over an hour away from there. Do you need any cars for the class? I could supply you with a 67 GTO, and/or a 70 Monte Carlo. If so, I won't do much with them this summer. Otherwise I was going to polish/coat them starting next week. This is COOL!

    EDIT: Let me know if you need any help with the class. I can be a go-fer!
