    Mike;

    Sorry to hear about your back and I know you don't want to hear is but rest is one of the best medicines.

    BTW used the lessons you taught on polishing the 1957 T-Bird. It has never looked so great! Now it has a very deep black finish with no swirls.

    Running the machine at full power does make the difference.

    Good to here Dick! While you were here getting some supplies I took a look at your 1957 Ford Thunderbird and I think you did an amazing job! The finish looks great! You do better work than a lot of detailers and certainly much better work than most car dealerships.


    I took these pictures while you were in the lobby.





    A couple of sun shots...

    Even though there were some clouds in the sky, it's still easy to see your T-Bird has a swirl-free, show car finish!







    Nice work buddy!

    Here's all the products used on both cars. I like to practice making car detailing simple, not rocket science.








    As for the pads, they were almost all foam polishing pads. I did my Test Spot using the CBEAST and Lake Country SDO polishing pads. When I turned the class loose, I let them choose and use any of the 25 polishers I laid out for this class. As each person would pick a tool, I would walk over to the Pad Cabinet and get them the correct foam "polishing" pad for their tool. I shot a little video of all the tools before the class started and shared on my Facebook page.


    If you >click< the picture below it will launch the video I tool.

    Wow!

    Well isn’t that a pretty picture! An absolutely stunning machine & looks like you have done an incredible job detailing it Dick Hoffman. Hopefully you will bring it out for the Open House Detail Day at Autogeek - Saturday, January 4th, 2020 so as this Kiwi guy can check it out in person.

    He did a great job polishing the paint on the T-Bird.


    I'm pretty sure he'll be here on January 4th for the Open House Detailing Day.
