    Re: Pictures: Autogeek’s Roadshow Class with PRAXIS Detailing in Auburn, Indiana

    That '70 Boss 429 Mustang in Grabber Blue came out sweet !

    White and black interior is icing on the cake, you don't see many of those.

    I always liked the '70 better than the '69 as they went to the matte black hood scoop vs. body color scoop - black makes it stand out/look more menacing.

    If it's all original/numbers-matching, that baby could be worth $300-400K ...

    Re: Pictures: Autogeek’s Roadshow Class with PRAXIS Detailing in Auburn, Indiana

    Hey Mike,

    What a great class in Auburn! I've always dabbled in detailing my own cars, but never was 100% confident in what I was doing. Attending this past weekend 2 day class really boosted my confidence.

    Using the different tools and products was great, but for me, having you looking over my shoulder and letting me know what I was doing right and what I was about to do wrong was worth the price of admission.

    Sharing your years of experience and all your tips and tricks was priceless. I'm sure I'll attend another class in a couple years just to stay up on products and new techniques and tools.

    I know it's a lot of work for you to put these classes on outside of the Auto Geek shop, so thank you for taking the time and effort to do it.

    Until next time,

    Eric

    Yes, thanks to Mike Phillips & Mike Liebing for a lot of effort to teach us detailing! I am ready to come back. My garage is not air conditioned nor do I have the tool selection and product selection that was at this class. It was fun to meet each of you and work beside you on projects.

    Mike:

    Thank you for the GREAT class!

    I was a little nervous going into this, thinking I would be a little behind everyone else, but you structured the class in a way that targeted everyone -- no matter what the skill.

    There was a lot of information to pack into 2 days, but you did it, and didn't let any of us slack! You did a great job of explaining all of the tools and products used, as well as all the proper steps and I now have the confidence to do my own car soon!

    Highly recommend for any level!

    Thank you!

    Jennifer Robertson

    As most of you have just posted for the first time on the AGO Forum - Welcome!

    Please do stick around & join in the fun. This class looked super cool, & as an alumni of one of Mikes classes myself I know you all were busy & took away a lot from this class as well. Congratulations to you all.

    What a class and what I learned will make my job easier in my detailing business. The class is hands on and Mike is hands on the entire class.

    We worked on six cars the first day from washing to finish seal. I was exhausted but it was so worth it.

    We got to experience different buffers, pads, towels products and techniques.

    The second day we continued detailing and got more experience on show car detailing along with engine and interior cleaning.
    Great summary Josh!

    I watched you through out the entire 2-day class and what really stood out to me about you're style of detailing is you are extremely focused on the task at hand and that's a key strength when it comes to the craft of car detailing and the art of polishing paint.

    Thanks Mike for everything.

    If you think our car detailing class is incredible - wait until you go through the boat detailing class. I'm happy to say, it's just as hands-on if not more hands-on because I bring in REALLY BIG BOATS! And they are in HORRIBLE condition when they arrive but when they leave, they look fabulous!


    It takes time to go through the pictures and document a class like this one you took or any of my boat classes. I'm sorry to say I have not been able to get all the pictures up from this year's boat class but I did get them all up from the 2018 Boat Class.

    Check out this thread as it will show you just how hands-on our boat class is....

    Re: Pictures: Autogeek’s Roadshow Class with PRAXIS Detailing in Auburn, Indiana

    I was a hobby detailer looking to learn the secrets of the industry and to remove the anxiety of ruining paint.

    After attending the Auburn IN class I now have the confidence to work on any car. Mike gave us an assortment of tools and products to use hands on in the class. Mike gave the class 110% effort and he shared knowledge that is invaluable.

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you for attending and for sharing your experience on our forum. Right now I'm adding the text to go with the picture here,


    Post #17 of THIS thread - (the one you're eyeballs are looking at right now) - takes time to make all these pictures AND text magically show up.



    This includes this picture of you working on the bad ass Mustang....


    Michael decontaminating paint.





    I'll keep working through the pictures until they are all up as this thread is going out in my next newsletter to show others EXACTLY what they get to do at one of our classes.

    Continuing with the pictures from this class.....


    While one team was working on the 1969 Mustang Boss 429 the other team was working on the 1964 GTO.

    Both teams using the same tools, pads and products as the first class covers simple, 8mm free spinning random orbital polishers. This is the foundation and after this first set of tools we move to long stroke orbital polishers and BUILD on this foundation.


    Here's before...





    My friend the Squirrel Finder Light....
    The difference between a swirl and squirrel





    Ouch!







    Step 1: Waterless Wash
    In this picture, I'm share the correct technique to use Pinnacle Waterless Wash with Carnauba to wash a car followed by the Mike Phillips technique for using a waterless wash.





    Step 2: Mechanical Decontamination

    Here's Jamie using a Medium Grade Nanoskin Towel to remove above surface bonded contaminants off the GTO.




    Teamwork!




    Step 3: Machine Compounding

    Our Test Spot revealed this car to have softer paint than the 1969 Mustang so instead of cutting with the Burgundy Buff & Shine foam cutting pad the class used the blue light foam cutting pad with the Pinnacle Advanced Compound .







    Here's Jamie CARFULLY edging with a Griot's 6" ROP and a Buff & Shine BLUE foam cutting pad





    Two cars being detailed at the same time. Same tools, pads and products. PLENTY of room for everyone to get PLENTY of hands-on time.







    Step 4: Machine Polishing

    Here's Ronnie polishing the hood (after compounding), with Pinnacle Advanced Finishing Polish and a Buff & Shine Yellow Uro-Tech 6" Foam pad.





    Teamwork!





    That's Roger down on the ground. Rodger is a real go-getter!







    Reminds me of me and an article I once wrote

    If it has paint it gets polished - Mike Phillips





    TJ on the trunk lid





    Step 5: Machine applying Pinnacle Souveran Paste Wax


    Pinnacle Souveran Paste Wax is normally applied by hand and works great but I like to show how to apply it by machine.











    Inspecting your microfiber towel



    How, why & when to inspect your microfiber towels when detailing cars




    Step 6: Wax removal








    Final Results!










    Group Shot after the first two cars for this 2-day class!
