Year in Review - Class Cars - Boats - & Certified Students for 2022


Hands-On Training
If you learn better by DOING versus SITTING in a chair - these are the BEST car and boat detailing classes on Planet Earth!
full

In this picture I'm placing my hand on the FLEX PE14 Cordless Rotary Polisher to show Manny - exactly how hard to push down on the head of the tool, how slow to move the tools, and the pattern to use when buffing large panels.



Real-World LIVE Reviews!
Hear what what people have to say about our classes first hand. NOTICE ALL THE ACTION IN THE BACKGROUND as Clint interviews these students LIVE during a class. Also notice there's NO CHAIRS and NO ONE is sitting around on their butt watching a Power Point Presentation.





The Real-Deal Detailing Classes
There's no other class in America, or the world, where the students get to train on the largest and coolest collection of cars over the course of the training days. There's also no other class in America, or the world, that photo-documents what YOU get to do when you take our class. I point this out because I find the hardest part about teaching our classes is not teaching the class - it's marketing the class or in simple terms, getting the word out.

With other classes? All you can do is cross your fingers and hope you actually get to do hands-on training on actual cars. Fact is, most classes are academic classes and what you're going to do is sit in a chair, look at the wall, (look at the wall means look at a Power Point Presentation on the wall), while someone talks about car detailing.

If you learn better by doing versus sitting in a chair while someone drones on and on and on ABOUT car detailing, then PLEASE research all the other options on the market. Look for PROOF for what you actually get to do, and then sign-up for one of our classes.

Glass Polishing - 1962 Corvette
For the glass polishing portion of this class we had a 1962 Corvette with horrible wiper scratches in the original glass windshield.


BEFORE

The original windshield, which is 61 years-old, is filled with swirls, scratches and a very common problem with classic cars - WIPER MARKS

full


full


full


full


full


full




Process

First a demonstration on the correct technique to machine polish glass using the new 3D Glass Polish

full




Hands-On Training
After the technique demonstration, I turn the class loose and ask that EVERYONE take a turn at machine polishing the glass with 3D's new Glass Polish.

full


full


full




Here's the final results!

full


full




And of course, the class detailed the rest of this old 2-door Chevy using 3D SPEED!

full




2020 Dodge Durango GT and 2021 Nissan Kicks
We used these two rental cars to learn how to use the 3D Dry Sanding System to remove factory orange peel.

full


full


full


full


full




After sanding, the class learned how to use the 3D compounds with wool pads on rotary buffers followed by machine polishing using orbital polishers.


First a demo by yours truly on how to make a rotary buffer dance on paint.

full




Then turn the class loose...

full


full


full



A little hands-on training completely flattens out the learning curve when it comes to using an 8" wool pad on a rotary to remove sanding marks.

full



Freestyling!

Fourth Class for 2022
For this next class we broke all our past records for both the number of cars detailed and the cool factor for cars detailed.


Here's the link to the full write-up for this class

563 Pictures - What a real hands-on car and boat detailing class looks like! And no chairs!

Here's a video I took showing "most" of the cars for this class, some had not arrived yet.




My classes are to the point now I need a picture flow chart so my assistants and myself know which cars to bring in next.

Here's my Caveman Flow Chart for this class

full




1933 Chevy - 1948 Mercury - 2019 Mustang Convertible

For breakfast? Learning how to use a rotary polisher. Starting with this class and moving forward with all my classes, instead of saving the rotary polisher class session for Saturday, we START first thing Friday morning learning how to use the FLEX PE14 in both corded and cordless versions with 3D 510 Premium Rubbing Compound.

A little demonstration time on how to use a rotary polisher before I turn the class loose!

full



Keep in mind, pretty much all other classes on Planet Earth - you'll be sitting in a chair looking at the wall listening to some instructor drone on and on while you fall asleep.

My class? You're on your feet having FUN!


Here's a father son team using a rotary on the hood of the 1933 Chevy

Training cars?

1973 Plymouth Duster - 1969 Dodge Dart Convertible - 1960 Cadillace Limousine

After production detailing in the morning, next up is learning how to use the 3D Dry Sanding System on the REAL DEAL!

What is the real deal?

Well at other classes you train on a demo hood on a hood stand. In the real world, the kind of cars that ACTUALLY get SANDED are cool cars that someone has invested a lot of money into to restore or hotrod. And this is what I bring in for my class to train on.

1973 Plymouth Duster
This car has a custom paint job that is 10 years old. Although it was sanded, the sanding was incomplete a there was lots of orange peel still left on the body panels. There were also sanding marks and holograms throughout the body panels.

A professional machine polishing could have removed the sanding marks and holograms but using the 3D Dry Sanding System will refine whatever the sanding marks in the paint are to a more uniform and shallow sanding mark pattern that will buff out faster and easier. Plus - the 3D Dry Sanding System followed by the 3D 510 and 520 will create a true show car finish, which is what a car like this should have in the custom muscle car world


1969 Dodge Dart Convertible
This car also has a custom paint job that's 4 years old. Like the Plymouth Duster, same thing, there's still orange peel in the paint plus horrible holograms and oxidation from lack of attention for so long.


1960 Cadillace Limousine
This Cadillac was given a custom paint job back in the early 1990s and then never sanded and buffed. As such it has HORRIBLE orange peel throughout the body panels plus HORRIBLE swirls and scratches. The 3D Dry Sanding System will completely flatten out the paint and create a show car finish on what most people consider the most difficult paint to work on and that's black paint.

First a demonstration on how to use the 3D Dry Sanding System

full



Then I turn the class loose and the entire time I walk around and ask questions, correct any technique issues and ensure there's no mistakes!

full


full


full


full


full


full


full



Back to the Rotary Polisher
Now the class uses the skills they learned starting Friday morning to remove the sanding marks using a rotary polisher with 3D 510 Premium Compound

full




Here's Vickie showing all the strong guys how it's done!

full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full



Cars are starting to look pretty good and this is ONLY the rotary step!

full




Here's the final results!

full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full




NO SWIRLS and NO HOLOGRAMS!

full




And no chairs!

full




12 cars in 2 days!

This class set the bar for all future classes!

If you're reading this and thinking about taking a detailing class - TRY to find this many pictures showing you exactly what you're going to get to do at any other class.

Guess what? You cannot find this many pictures. In fact, you would be luck to find a half dozen pictures and most of these will be people sitting in chairs or watching the instructor doing a demonstration on a DEMO HOOD. LOL.

Hands-on Boat Detailing Classes!

Here at our Training Academy in sunny, Stuart, Florida, our training garage is 100' DEEP! We can bring in 3 boats at 30' in length should the demand arise. And we have the ELECTRICAL POWER to provide everyone with all the electricity needed for all the tools and never throw a breaker. Most classes cannot offer you this little tidbit that I've seen another local business forget about when they built their show car garage. LOL


Here's the before and after pictures showing the HUGE boats our classes detailed for the year 2022

Remember - you can click on the link to visit each of the 3 different threads and see ALL the pictures from our classes. Other companies? Other instructors? There's simply no pictures. You have no idea what you're actually going to get to do once you pay for their class.

Do you research and get signed-up before out classes sell-out and they always sell out.


First Boat Detailing Class for 2022

Extreme Boat Detailing - Gelcoat Correction & Ceramic Coatings


Two 23' Sportsman Center Consoles

For this first class, we had 2 black, 23' Sportsman Center Console Boats. Two boats, black in color and in such horrible condition the gelcoat has turned white with deep oxidation.



BEFORE
At my classes, I ONLY bring in DARK colored boats in HORRIBLE condition because this way I can teach you EVERYTHING you need to know to tackle the worst case scenario.

The Stuart Sandbar
Here's the second 23' Sportsman - I took this picture while on the Stuart Sandbar. I actually swam over to the boat and asked the owner if he would like a FREE Boat Detail for letting us use his boat. He said yes!

full



Out of the water - note my Test Spot

full



Here she is staged in front of the first 23' Sportsman Center Console inside our training academy.

full

How to use a rotary polisher on the side of a boat hull

I teach people how to get the job done right the first time while also working smarter instead of harder. Running a rotary polisher for HOURS against the side of a boat hull that ANGLES away from you is hard if you don't know how to do it right.

First a demonstration...

full



This is correct technique

full



Then I turn the class loose!

full


full


full


full


full




Looking good considering this is after a compound and wool pad from a rotary polisher!

full



Here's Javier showing a rotary polisher who's the BOSS!

full



Next machine polishing...

full


full




Then prepping with 3D WIPE and then installing the 3D Ceramic Coating - 3 Layers

full


full


full


full


full


full


full




2 HUGE Center Consoles easily fit in our Training Academy with room for a 3rd!

Third Boat Detailing Class for 2022

For this class we had a 23' Trophy Center Console and a 23' Century Center Console - BOTH in horrible, horrible condition! Perfect for a hands-on training class.


We start early and we start on time!

Here's my class ready to start. I took this picture to photo-document that I start my classes on time. I start them early. And there are no chairs.

full




Photo-Documentation

Every "instructor" has their own style for teaching a class. Me? It's SUPER important to me to capture and document the BEFORE condition.


Video Documentation
The below video does a really great job of walking around these two boats to show you how bad these two boats are and the below pictures back the video up.




BEFORE Pictures

full


full




8-month old Test Spot
Before this class took place, the owner brought the boat to 3D so I could do a Test Spot. At the time of these pictures, the Test Spot is 8 months old and this boat has been in the water the entire time.

full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full




A spray wax isn't going to fix this boat.

full




Machine sanding
First the class machine sands the gelcoat to remove deep oxidation using a 3-step process

full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full





Compounding to remove sanding marks
Next the class using the 3D 510 Premium Rubbing Compound to remove 100% of the sanding marks and restore gloss and clarity to the gelcoat finish.

full



I continually walk around during the class and monitor everyone's technique and results. When needed, I tweak technique and confirm successful execution of the process.

full


full



Chris Metcalf from FLEX Tools North America

full


full


full






Polishing to maximize gloss, clarity and smoothness
For the polishing step, the class uses 3D 520 Finishing Polish to perfect the gelcoat.

full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full




Look at the clear, deep reflections!

full


full




Sealing the gelcoat with 3D Ceramic Coating
Next the class applies 3 layers of 3 D Ceramic Coating to seal the gelcoat while at the same time creating a hydrophobic surface that will make future washing and maintaining faster and easier.

full




Before the class installs the ceramic coating, I go over tips and correct technique for coating a boat

full




Then it's time to seal the deal!

full


full


full


full






Here are the after results!

full


full


full


full


full


full


full


full





Off the Century goes to be put back into the water....

full


full





And off the Trophy goes, also to be dunked back into the drink...

5 Boats detailed for 2022!

All 5 boats were in extreme horrible condition and all 5 boats came out looking better than when they left the factory and this is because the majority of boats coming from a boat manufacture have HOLOGRAMS.


If you want to learn how to take neglected to respected, don't take a chance by signing-up for any other boat class. Take the real deal here at 3D in sunny Stuart, Florida.

More...

I just watched a REEL on Facebook showing a detailing class with a FAMOUS company and in the video all the students were sitting in chairs followed by using their polishers on DEMO HOODS!

I felt so sorry for anyone that paid for this class. They would have learned more in the first 2 hours of any of my classes than they did in the entire day at this class.

I have screenshots but as a professional courtesy to the other company, I won't share them as it will simply create hate from them towards me for pointing out their lame class.

You don't learn anything running a polisher over a flat hood on a hood stand.

And the sad part, is all these people probably think it's a great class.

Lame.
