This sounds pretty interesting. Link http://www.mortorsportreg.com/ hasn't worked for me at work or at home though on different machines (both XP though). I don't know if I can make it, but I am curious about this. Is the clinic hands' on with our own cars, or a clinic with us gathered around one car provided by the shop to either just watch or to try out products and techniques side by side each other?

I'm not sure what they have in store but I suspect it may be the latter

Thanks, that link works much better! Looks like I need to decide by the end of the night tonight! Probably will have to skip this one due to some other commitments that I'm stuggling to finish. This sounds like a great way to check out some products and learn.

Great for newbies...lots of good tips (took a few pages of notes too). Mike from gemstonedetail.com shared a ton of insider techniques.

That would have been great. Was it more of a 'watch Mike work' on a single car and maybe a little hands on stuff on the demo car? Or was it mroe intensive with each person detailing his/her own car?

Neither, really...wished it was either; mostly Mike talking and doing some 'dry demos'

Makes sense for the cost, and it helps demonstrate the knowledge a good detailer has which should turn into some sales and general excitement from car owners on detailing. I've seen a couple good videos and photos promoting products at Detailers Domain. Not as good as a live demo or hands-on instruction, but it's a start. Glad you got some good tips from the class!
