    Autogeek's Roadshow - Saturday & Sunday Class Outline


    Saturday - 6:30am to 6:30pm



    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,

    Yes - you can get a refund if you have to cancel.

    Andre is the expert here - I don’t do sales. I think there is a 24 hour time frame before the date of the class.

    We're about 3 weeks out from this class.


    I am VERY HAPPY to say that in my classes, we start in the garage and end in the garage.


    At this class there will be,

    NO classroom.
    No tables and chairs.
    No Power Point Presentation.

    If that's the kind of class you like there are plenty of those around to attend but that's now how we do things.

    Here's what there will be,

    • You working with multiple multiple tools.
    • You working with multiple multiple brands of products.
    • You learning every aspect of car detailing inside and outside of the car.
    • On your feet learning.
    • Using your hands and your brain learning.




    In fact, if you want to see what I consider what a REAL car detailing class looks like, click on the links below and scan the pictures and read the testimonies by the people that attended.


    These are the most recent roadshow classes....

    We're about 2 weeks out from this class.


    These classes are the MOST hands-on classes in the United States. They are tailored towards ALL levels of skills and backgrounds.

    They are the ONLY classes where you get to work on ALL the popular brands of tools, not just one brand of tool. Plus so many different products.


    There are still a few spaces available for this class. I guarantee you, even if you've been to some other class, you will come to realize like anyone else that has taken another class, nothing is as fun or as hands-on as our Roadshow Classes.
