    Both cars showed up dirty...

    The Jeep is a 2016 and is parked outside all the time. As you look at the iron contamination bleeding off the car, keep in mind, if this Jeep is contaminated.... what are the odds your car is contaminated?

    Continued....


    This was a beginners class for machine polishing but after going over how to use a simple 8mm free spinning orbital polisher everyone was invited to test out and use ANY tool their hearts desired!

    Continued....

    After using BLACKFIRE Compound and Polish and a host of mixed tools to correct the paint, next up we chemically stripped it with BLACKFIRE Paint Prep and then coated it with the new BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Coating




    Here's Joshua prepping the hood...




    Grace is getting the side of the roof...





    Edson on the fender...






    Derek gets the roof...





    Jeff is on other side getting the roof...





    After chemically stripping the paint, next up the team installs the BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Coating...





    Edson




    Derek...




    Jeff





    Joshua




    Frank and Jason





    Justin





    Beauty Shots

    Here's the end results, I guarantee you, the paint on this Jeep looks better than when this Jeep rolled off the assembly line.

























    Some SONAX Gloss Tire Gel adds the finishing touch...

    Re: 700 HP Hennessy Vette and Jeep Cherokee - Waxed and Coated

    Just want to say thanks to Mike Phillips and Autogeek for putting on this class.

    What a great expierence. It’s one thing to watch videos and read how to do things online. It’s completly different to be their getting hands on experience.

    Almost any “free” class you take for anything is nothing more then a sales pitch for a particular product. But here it was all about using the tools and different products available. And every tool you could imagine was made available to us.

    I drove an hour and a half up from ft Lauderdale and it was well worth it. I wouldn’t hesitate to make the drive again and I look forward to hopefully taking his 3 day class soon..

    thanks again Mike.

    After coating the Jeep we moved onto the Corvette.


    To seal the paint we're going to use the BLACKFIRE One Step Cleaner/Wax.

    Good to hear, I'll try to hold more of these in-between our 2-Day Roadshow Classes and our 3-Day Classes.
