Arrow Magic Detail • Machine Polishing Tuition (beginner/intermediate) • Saturday 28/09/13

Hello all

Here at Magic Detail we have put together a training module for those looking to hone their skills and/or take them to the next level. There's alot of demand out there for detailing training and it seems everyone is jumping on the bandwagon trying to 'cash in' - in many cases groups are very large and therefore it becomes more a case of paying to watch someone else do it rather than a real hands on and personalised event.

To alleviate this problem whilst still keeping the training hands on and personal we have decided to offer it out in very small groups of 4 people (no more, no less). This keeps the costs low for the individual whilst maximising the amount of machine time available for everyone.

Course now full.

Payment info due out via PM shortly, please check your inboxes.



To those who have missed out, don't panic, there will be other opportunities in October time - stay tuned for further info.

1-to-1 sessions are available on suitable dates to myself and the individual, please PM me if you are interested, but please note I am currently booked up 6 weeks in advance and it often stays that way, so it is better to plan ahead.

Best wishes,
Matt

Thanks for the responses.

I think it's best to run a reserve list just incase anyone can't make it last minute etc, so I'll start with;

1) V3NOM

As previously mentioned if you missed out this time I will be doing another date in October which I will announce later today, and I'll also include details of the 1-1 courses available (wet sanding is only available as a 1-1 session).
