Detailing Seminar

Right now, this is a feeler but several members of Max have mentioned they would be interested in a detailing seminar. Originally, I suggested an open garage session lead by yours truly and tackling the issue of paint correction with the Porter Cable polisher.

I believe it will be in the best interest of Max members to learn how to perform the two-bucket wash technique, however. This is the single greatest skill of any professional or amateur detailer and is an excellent way to introduce Max to swirl-free washing techniques.

I could also create some wash packages, including all the necessary equipment and microfibre towels as well for purchase.

How many people would be interested in signing up?

If it's free I'm in, if it's not I'm maybe in. I'd probably pick up a proper microfiber towel from you though if you have some new ones laying around.

If attendance is low, I may have to charge. If it's 10 or more, I don't think I would have any issue making it a free event.

Perhaps a small charge to cover drinks and food?

OT: Such a beautiful day today (spring's on the way)

That's a good question. I could potential host this at my home in Stouffville. There's more than enough room there. I think ten cars could easily fit in the paved driveway.

I think I would prefer that it be a booze-free event. If it were a small event, sure, but anything over five people is a no-go when it comes to liquor.

I would enjoy providing food and drinks and make it an afternoon event. Perhaps I'll even hold a BBQ.

I would like to do it sometime in April if the weather will hold and spring will begin. Rain will also be a factor in choosing the date.
