Talking Mirror Finish Wet Sand Workshop 27/10/12.

Wet Sand Workshop Of The Month!!!!!!

The next date for the Wet Sand Hybrid course is now going to be Saturday 27th October.

The idea of the course is to introduce Wet Sanding to you as a way of taking the correction on your car to the next level of Bling!!!!!

I will be showing the two Wet Sands that are generally available. The Wet Sand tickle to just knock the peel out and the fully flatted panel to within 2-3 Mil across the panel.

We will then polish the panel back and I will demo that this method will take all the swirls out and will remove less clear than compounding.

The course will be £65 per person and will include lunch plus tea and coffee all day. If you have dietry requirements or don't eat meat let me know.

This will be a paid course so full payment will be required to confirm a booking. Payments to me via paypal to stevehughes@ymail.com as a gift.

This course will be a maximum of 5 people with the usual reserves if needs be.

If you want to take your car to the maxumum of bling this is the one for you.

One to one wet sanding courses are also available, email me at mirrorfinish@ymail.com.

Interior and engine courses will be running from November.

If you need to call me my number is 07709 393615, I am always available!!!!!!

Bookings been taken now.

For people reading the thread and thinking 'is it worth it, shall i sign up?' - I would like to express my thoughts and experiences.

I've done a couple of Mirror Finish courses now, including the wet-sanding course and I would certainly encourage you to put your name down! I've learnt a huge amount from Steve's courses which are well run, extremely informative and certainly 'myth busting!'

Well worth the money for people wanting to broaden their detailing knowledge!

Jon

This will be the first course where certificates are issued, signed by yours truly in blood.

This will then lead onto the the advanced course.
