    Pictures & Comments: Sept 2014 Detail Boot Camp Class


    Finished off yesterday's class with good food and fun at the Marriott Lounge last night, in about an hour we start up day two. Here's a few pictures of completed projects from yesterday's class.

    We restored a perfect, show car finish to the award winning 1956 Dodge Lancer




    We removed the most atrocious swirls and scratches from the 1965 Plymouth Belvedere II



    We restored the original antique single stage paint on the 1967 Continental



    We learned how to machine wet sand and use rotary buffers using this 1939 LaSalle





    Here's a shot of the class with all of the cars towards the end of the day on Sunday....

    Here's the 2014 September Detailing Boot Camp Class at the end of the class on Sunday receiving their Certificates.

    NOTE: All the pictures I post to the forum I first resize to 800 pixels wide but I have all the high resolution, full file size pictures if anyone wants the full size version to print out.

    Just shoot me an e-mail and I'll gladly send you your full size picture that you can upload to Walgreens and get printed out for framing.

    Looking good guys, just absorb as much information as you can because Mike is a walking encyclopedia when it comes to car detailing.

    Awesome work, I knew it would be great, but knowing the cars and the projects now is an assurance it's being wonderful!

    Congratulations everyone working on those beauties.

    Kind Regards.

    We had an awesome two days of working together on all types of cars covering all facets of car detailing and have lots of great pictures to share!

    The Continental is leaving this morning and wait till you see the dramatic before and after pictures for both the outside and the inside!

    Last weekend was a blast.

    This class definitely hosted one of our most passionate groups of enthusiasts to date, with everyone eager and hungry to learn.

    It was a pleasure meeting each and every one of you that attended.

    I can't wait to see the photos Mike! *Subscribed*

    This class was absolutely awesome. I learned more information and had plenty of opportunity to learn to use new equipment than I thought was possible during a two-day training. It was great to work with one of the top professionals in the industry.

    I had two goals in mind I wanted to take away from this class. The first was to introduce myself to different polishers. Currently, I use the Porter Cable and want to purchase a second, more advanced polisher, and with so many on the market, I was unsure of which one. My new polisher will be the Flex. My second goal was exactly how Mike Phillips stated, and that was to bring my comfort level up with paint correction.

    I detail for a living. Beyond the above, I learned some new information that can improve my business skills, assess a potential client's needs, and realistically - from both my client's perspective and mine - meet those needs. I was also introduced to new compounds, polishes, and waxes that I can add to or replace what is currently in my arsenal.

    In Ken Robinson's book, "The Element," he writes about doing your passion and being in your "tribe," and how this helps create a successful and satisfying life. It was great to spend a weekend with both enthusiasts and other detailers doing this work for a living. Thanks for recognizing our passion Nick, and thank you for all of your guidance too!
