A lot of people say what you said above, that is they like working with a good mix of people from different backgrounds and different experience levels.

I can speak for the folks in the class when I say using all the different machines was a thrill.

I always wondered about using them and I can now say I have.

That would be this class,

Pictures & Comments September 2018 3-Day Detailing Class at Autogeek with Mike Phillips


And we really had some great cars to work on in that class including the 1965 GTO and the 1957 Tbird everyone was able to learn how to wet sand by hand and machine on these two bitchen rides!

To hear Louise’s story is very cool.

I took the above pictures and created this thread because so many guys I meet, (typically guys, not women), in conversation tell me,

I'm not a detailer


Implying that they think the class is only for detailers, people that detail their cars for money. But as you probably experienced, about 50% to 60% of the people that attend ANY of the classes are NOT detailers, they are just people that love to work on their cars or boats....

So I created this thread with those pictures and I share it various ways to show all the big strong guys of the world that if they like detailing their cars and boats, then this class is for them. It is not just for people that detail for money. If it's out of their budget then that's something each person has to figure out but Louise flew all the way from California to Stuart, Florida and loved this class.

I have not had a head count lately but going by how many people tell me they are going to take the February boat class it's going to sell out faster than ever.
