    Pictures from February 2018 Comp Ready Detailing Class!


    Thank you to everyone for attending the BEST and most Hands-On Car Detailing Class on Planet Earth!

    I just finished up conducting Skill Validation Testing for the IDA for 4 people, two of the guys, Nunzio and Tony that attend this class. So I'm off for 2 days and then back in the office to play catch-up with my other job duties and then next week I'll be posting pictures of the boat class and then this class.

    So please stay tuned!



    In order of when they were detailed...



    Here's the 1956 Chevy Nomad (behind the class), and the 2004 Monte Carlo





    Here's the 1972 Buick Skylark Convertible (behind the class), and the 1965 Plymouth Valiant






    Here's the 1970 Chevelle 396 SS (behind the class) and the 1969 Cyclone Spoiler II Fastback - Dan Gurney Special






    Here's the 1962 Impala SS (behind the class), and the 1962 Dodge Coronet Stationwagon





    Here's the 2015 Chevy Silverado LTZ (behind the class), and the 2006 GMC Sierra Duramax






    Here's the 1948 Chevy Suburban Streetrod Wetsanding Project

    Re: Pictures from February 2018 Comp Ready Detailing Class!

    First of all, thank you Mike for all the preparation, effort, and hard work that you put into the class.

    For me, the class was an experience of my life. If you are thinking of taking the class, DO IT. It's worth more than you expected. Even if you've been detailing cars before, you will pick up many good tips from the class. I thought working on cars for 3 days was going to be long and slow, but the class was totally the opposite. Just like what Mike told us on the first day, the class was fast paced, and people learn by doing.

    Before I know, 3 days were gone, and I wish I could stay for a little longer.

    I will probably never get to try that many tools and products anywhere else, and I'm definitely NOT sitting in a chair for most the time. Also, I learned using the tools on real cars, not just some scratched up hoods. Now, not only I know how to make the paint shine again, I understand how it works. These are what I went there for, to try a lot, to understand better, to know more.

    I don't know what more I can say... but after walking out of that class, I'm fulfilled with knowledge, and I'm very happy that I went.

    If you love making cars to shine, and want to learn how to do it, this is the place to go...

    Thank you Jay but to be fair, there's a lot of people behind the scenes that make these classes a success including my right-hand man... Andre!

    I do my best to do a "Brain Dump" and a "Technique Dump" and give 100% all three days...

    That's right. And I have plenty of pictures showing you and everyone else working on cars and off to the side --> empty chairs.

    And this is our trademark... ALL the popular tools and actually "systems" and cool cars... not demo hoods, not cookie sheets, not even rental cars or beaters... you work on the REAL DEAL!

    And the above sentence is KEY. After you take my class you not only know technique but as important... you know how to DETAIL A CAR from START TO FINISH!

    Thanks Jay for sharing your experience. It was a genuine pleasure having you in the class.

    Continued...


    On Sunday, the third day of the class, (for very specific reasons), we go over wetsanding by hand and by machine. I always try to have the real deal here, not demo hoods, cookie sheets or rental cars. Nothing wrong with these other learning mediums but NOTHING beats the real deal.

    For this class, my very good friend Mike Gelter just had his 1948 Chevy Suburban Streetrod painted about 3 weeks ago and he trusted Autogeek, me and my class to do the wetsand, cut and buff.

    Here's the tools the class used and the results, more pics next week.

    Can anyone name all the tools, sanding products, pads etc?



































    Not bad considering this was the FIRST time most of the people in this class ever wetsanded anything!


    Good job team!


    Mike LOVED the results!
