    Austin, Texas Roadshow Detailing Class - June 1st & 2nd

    Austin, Texas Roadshow Detailing Class - June 1st & 2nd


    The second roadshow car detailing class for 2019 will take place in Austin, Texas.





    This hands-on training class will be held at the Pro Reflection Detail Shop.





    Here's Cosmin hanging a banner shortly after moving into his shop 5-6 years ago...





    The shop is well lit with plenty of room to work on 2 cars at a time, which is how we run our training program.





    Cosmin is also a Certified XPEL Paint Protection Film Installer - During the class you'll have the chance to talk to Cosmin and he can answer any of your questions related to PPF installation either for your personal car or as a business opportunity.











    Cosmin and I have been friends ever since he attended my first Autogeek Roadshow Class, which was held at Nick's Custom Detailing WAY BACK in November of 2009 - this would be 5 months after I came to work for Autogeek after leaving Meguiar's in Irvine, California.


    Here's a picture (of a picture) of Cosmin and I from that class.




    Here's Nick working the FLEX 3403 I shipped out to his shop. At the time this was the latest and greatest in rotary polishers.





    A year later Cosmin attended a GTG or Get-together I held at the Concours Detailing Salon owned by Ron Harris and Anthony Orosco.




    From left to right, Ron Harris, Mike Phillips and Anthony Orosco



    (Ron and Anthony are Rock Stars in the professional car detailing world)




    I can tell you first-hand, Cosmin is the real-deal. That is not only is he an expert detailer he's also a genuinely nice and personable guy. He's always willing to help out or answer any questions.


    This is the only class scheduled for Texas for 2019 so get signed-up before the class fills up.

    What will you get to do when you attend one of these classes? Great question! Here's the 2-day course outline


    Autogeek's Roadshow - Saturday & Sunday Class Outline


    Saturday



    Morning Session - Multiple-Step Paint Correction


    1: Extreme Washing - This class session covers all the correct tools, products and techniques to thoroughly clean and prep a car for detailing when using a source of running water.

    This includes,

    • Foam Guns
    • 3-Bucket Wash Method
    • Wheel Woolie Wheel Brushes
    • Speedmaster Wheel Brushes
    • Brake-dust Removing Wheel Cleaners
    • Mechanical Decontamination using Nanoskin Mitts & Towels
    • Chemical Decontamination using Iron & Fallout Remover
    • Tools for machine scrubbing tires
    • Tools for air drying cars



    Also covered in the morning washing session are the non-washing procedures to do and the correct order to do them in.

    1. Wet Wash Engine Detailing
    2. Machine Glass Polishing
    3. Headlight Correction




    2: Car Inspection & Prep
    This class session covers everything you need to do to a car BEFORE you start machine polishing. This includes inspecting using an Vehicle Inspection Form, Paint Thickness Gauge, Swirl Finder Lights, Baggie Test. Plus what to tape-off and how to correctly tape-off and cover-up trim, comments, tops, etc.


    3: How, why and where to do a Test Spot
    One of the most important steps if not THE most important step everyone should be doing before detailing a car.


    4: 2-step paint correction and polishing
    This class session covers all the professional techniques to correctly compound and polish paint to perfection. Multiple-step paint correction is called, show car detailing because you're breaking the paint polishing process down into isolated and dedicated steps to maximize the end-results for a true show car quality finish. This session includes tools from,

    1. FLEX
    2. RUPES
    3. Griot's Garage
    4. Meguiar's
    5. Makita
    6. Porter Cable
    7. Cyclo




    Pads - Products
    The morning session includes a wide range of pro-grade compounds, polishes and buffing pads for a very well-rounded experience. You will learn how to know when to use a compound versus a medium, fine or ultra fine cut polish.


    Ceramic Coatings - Waxes - Sealants
    The morning session covers proper techniques for chemically stripping paint for the installation of ceramic coatings specifically. Techniques for applying and removing traditional carnauba waxes and synthetic sealants are also covered in the morning session.


    5: Final Steps
    The morning session covers coatings and dressings for; glass, tires, rims and plastic trim.



    >Lunch Break<
    Lunch and cold beverages are provided



    Afternoon Session - One-Step Detailing
    One step detailing is also called production detailing. In this session you will learn which types of cars and other projects are best suited for an AIO type product, (All-in-One), also called a cleaner/wax. The focus on this class is how to restore a neglected car's finish to like-new condition in only one step. Also called Speed Detailing. This type of detailing is great for enthusiasts taking care of their own daily drivers or for professional detailers for their budget package and also things like dealership work.


    1: Washing Techniques for Waterless Washes and Rinseless Washers
    The afternoon session covers how, where, when, why and what for using either a waterless or rinseless wash. Correct techniques for both types are covered and when to use one over the other. Also covered are the correct types of wash media and other tools needed to clean a car without running water safely.


    2: Mechanical decontamination - Why and how to use detailing clay and clay substitutes
    Students learn the proper technique for using detailing clay as well as clay substitutes.

    3: Taping-off and covering up to save time and marketing purposes
    Students will build on the foundation created in the morning session as well as learn the marketing side of taping-off and covering stain-sensitive surfaces.


    4: One-step high quality detailing
    Where the morning session goes over how to use a multiple-step approach for show car results, the afternoon session covers how to correctly use All-in-One products to compound, polish and protect the paint in one-step. This type of detailing is perfect for entry level detailing packages as well as daily drivers, budget details, RV's, and large vehicles like trucks and vans where the owner or customer does not want or need a ceramic coating. There are dos and don't when it comes to this type of detailing, which you will learn in the class. Everyone should have the skill set and knowledge to correctly perform one-step detailing jobs whether you're an enthusiast or you detail for money.


    Tools - Pads - Products
    I call this free-for-all. Students can choose and use any tool and pad combo they previously used in the morning session. This is your opportunity to spend more time with any tool that has attracted your interest and attention and you're thinking about investing in. You can even use multiple tools, it's your choice. The importance of abrasive technology is stressed in this class as well as how to under-promise and over-deliver exceptional results. You will learn how to get show car results in half the time.





    Sunday


    Morning session - Wetsanding an entire car from start to finish
    If you have ever wanted to know the art of wetsanding, here's your chance to learn from beginning to end, exactly what to do. This is a real-world class where you will work on real cars and this is the BEST way to learn the entire process from start to finish.

    This class includes,

    • How to prep a car for wetsanding
    • Hand sanding techniques
    • Machine sanding techniques
    • How to correctly use a rotary buffer to remove 100% of the sanding marks
    • How to finish out 100% hologram and swirl free using any orbital polisher (your choice which orbital polisher to use)
    • How to seal the paint using a ceramic coating, carnauba wax or synthetic sealant, even the cheater technique of using an AIO.




    >Lunch Break<
    Lunch and cold beverages are provided


    Afternoon Session - Interior Detailing
    You will learn the difference between a hot water extractor and a steam machine and when and how to use one over the other.

    This includes,







    End of day

    Important


    Autogeek offers a $100.0 store credit on Autogeek.com if you sign-up for any of our classes 30 days before the date of the class.

    We ship out between 1000 and 2000 pounds of tools, pads and product for our roadshow classes. Having a good head count before shipping helps us to make sure there are enough tools, products and supplies for everyone attending.


    As I type this it's Monday, April 22nd. The Austin Roadshow Class is June 2nd and 3rd.

    This means in order to qualify for the $100.00 store merchandise credit you need to sign-up on or before May 2nd.


    Happy to have you at any class after the 30 day early sign-up incentive has passed but if you are planning on going might as well take advantage of this offer.


    See you there!

    You get hands-on training with more tools, products and pads on real cars, not demo hoods than any other class....





    The view from the water cooler and vending machines...




    Each row of 3 8' tables down one side...









    Cordless FLEX Tools, batteries and chargers. Plus I usually take my personal cordless tools...




    The Number #1 Cordless XC 3401 aka the CBEAST!





    Down the other side of the 8's tables, row by row....








    I always take a Cyclo. While I'm at an offsite class might as well pack one for anyone interested in testing one out...
    (we sell a ton of these at Autogeek)




    I only have ONE BigFoot 21 Mark III for the class to try out...




    I only have ONE RUPES LHR19E Rotary Polisher for the class to try out...




    I only have 6 RUPES Milles for the class to test out...





    And that's just the tools!

    You'll never find this many pictures showing you what you ACTUALLY get to do for any other class or instructor.


    Take my word for it.... you want to go to a hands-on class like I teach. You'll fall asleep in the classes with chairs.

    Re: Austin, Texas Roadshow Detailing Class - June 1st & 2nd




    I start packing for this class tomorrow.

    I'm packing for everyone signed-up. Everyone one in my classes gets their own,

    • Tools
    • Products
    • Pads
    • Towels
    • Everything!




    So if you're planning on going, get signed-up so I pack for YOU!

    Call Andre at 1-800-869-3011 x244

    If he doesn't answer, leave a voice mail, he'll call you back.


    There is no other class where you get to work on cars with this many tools.



























    This concept is NOT just try before you buy.... it's try before you INVEST a lot of money into the wrong pads and products besides the wrong tools.

    Use all the tools you see and hear about and KNOW which one you like best. Don't make the mistake of jumping on the Hype Bandwagon for any brand of tool.
