Talking KDS Advanced day II - Wet Sanding & Orange Peel Removal - 29th September 2013

KDS Advanced day II - Wet Sanding & Orange Peel Removal -
29th September 2013



Ok guys, so as we have some capacity on the beginners event on the 29th of September,
Kelly has authorised something a little special

I will be releasing five places at a time for an advanced group practicing wet sanding techniques within the day on a strictly first come first served basis


Please see feedback from the previous event:

http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...=308609&page=4

If you are interested in taking up a spot in what will be the last event of 2013, don't delay places are expected to disappear very fast!





First order of the day tea



Your arena awaits! Each trainee had an allocated section of panel for the days fun.



It was at least this big



Detailing's Yoda Mr Harris introduces the day's agenda.



We started out with some very orange peel paint....



And considered the theory behind wet sanding







Far less paint removed by hand...



Time to see what we've got....



Hmmm that's better







Eventually dropped the DAS and picked up the Big Foot



Clyde gets some expert tips from Paul.





Patrick demonstrates the Flex gangnam style






Here comes the shine....




Plenty of opportunity to try different machines..







And compounds







Great results






I love the glass finish

A day dedicated to the fine art of wet sanding and orange peel removal with the master detailer Kelly Harris and his expert team.

Numbers will be strictly limited to 5 trainees, each will be allocated a 1/4 panel, with a trainer on each panel. Kelly will be leading from the front providing demos, guidance and assessing techniques and results throughout the day.

In addition to this unique opportunity to learn some truly incredible skills, Kelly will be putting together a wet sanding starter kit for each trainee consisting of a soft wet sanding block, a hard wet sanding block and a selection of various grades of paper to take away...As far as I’m aware these materials are normally only available in bulk...

Refreshments will be provided throughout the day and in line with tradition you will have the chance to try a different pizza from the local Pizzeria




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


When:

10am-4pm Sunday 29th September 2013

Where:

KDS Gillingham

Cost:

As discussed this is a very special event, and numbers have been heavily restricted to ensure the most hands on experience possible as is the overriding aim for all the KDS Events, the cost has therefore been set at £120-00 for the day.

Please feel free to pay in full to secure your place.....

For better flexibility payments should now be made by debit or credit card over the phone on 01634 581560, however please note that there will be a 2% additional charge on credit card payments.

Trainees:
  1. Joech92 (paid in full 12/9/13)
  2. Mike_s (paid in full 17/9/13)
