Thanks again to every one who supported the first two beginners event at KDS in 2012!!!!

The 2nd event went really well and the feedback has been very positive, so I am now taking deposits for KDS I Intermediate Paint Correction for the Beginners graduates We will now also be running beginners groups within the same event for those who can make the 25th of November.

WHEN and WHERE?

Date: KDS I Intermediate Paint Correction 25th November 2012, KDS III Beginners Paint Correction 25th November 2012 , at KDS Keltec, Gillingham, Kent, ME7 1YQ

9-30am to 5pm.

MAP TO KDS KELTEC - www.kdskeltec.co.uk/map.phtml

WHAT?

An introduction to paint correction aimed at beginners wanting to learn the magic of DA and Rotary polishing.

Kelly and his team will take attendees through the paint correction processes, demo techniques, and split people into groups with everyone then having the opportunity to practise on test panels. The idea is to make the event very hands on! If you have your own machine please bring it along to hone your skills on your own unit, but don't worry Kelly has plenty of machines to go around!

The Intermediate groups will look at taking things to the next level...dealing with specific defects and more advanced techniques (No wet sanding yet!).

  1. Using a PDG (single reading total depth gauge)
  2. Identifying different defects
  3. Tackling deeper scratches
  4. Pad & compound selection
  5. Wax v Sealants
  6. Wheel care



WHO?

Hosted by KDS Keltec - http://www.kdskeltec.co.uk/

HOW MUCH?

£59-00 by Friday 17th of November.

Please make payments through Paypal to Kelly at info@kdskeltec.co.uk and please remember to include your DW username so that we can ID you. If you are local please feel free to pay by cash.


Please use the following format User name -real name - Pizza choice. :http://www.prontopizza.biz/Index2.html




One important notice - all questions to be directed via the thread and me...please do not call KDS directly as Kelly is extremely busy at the moment and is unlikely to be available

Ordering my machine next week so should be getting the required practise in, really can't recommend the beginners course enough. Well worth the money.

If it's on a Saturday, I'd like to attend please, if there's availability.

Edit: should have said definitely for the beginner's course, more than likely both, depending on price/dates/pizza toppings etc.

Hello Simon

You've got me at position four and twelve for intermediates. I am definitely interested in going, but there is only one of me so position four will suffice!

Cheers
