The primary goal of our Training Garage Portion of the class is to show proper technique for using our MT300 Dual Action Polisher and to allow the class attendants to test & try out our MT300 Dual Action Polisher. In order to allow all attendants that wish to do so time to get a basic feel for using our DA Polisher with an instructor, actual "hands on" time during this class per person ends up being around 5 - 10 minutes. After completion of our Detailing 101 class, if you are looking to get more hands on time using a DA Polisher with an instructor, we encourage you to sign up to attend our Thursday Night Open Garage Sessions (TNOG).

Meguiar's Thursday Night Open Garage (TNOG)


On the below scheduled Thursday nights, Meguiar's will host our "Thursday Night Open Garage" in which registered members of our Meguiar's Online Discussion Forum can sign-up to attend. The purpose of our Thursday Night Open Garage sessions are to allow the attendants to test & try out any of Meguiar's products alongside trained Meguiar's Surface Care Specialists! Our Thursday Night Open Garages (TNOGs) are also very popular as a follow up to our "Saturday Detailing 101 Classes." Since our Thursday Night Open Garages are an open format, with time permitting, we can help you with Dual Action Polisher Technique on your own car, and even test & develop a system on a fender or hood, which you can repeat on the rest of the car at home!

IMPORTANT NOTE: We want to allow as many MOL Members to have a chance for us to assist with there questions or work on their car. If we help you work on your car, we only have time to do some testing on the hood or a fender, so that you can repeat the process on the rest of the vehicle at home. By doing this more people can get their car into the garage and learn in the limited amount of time that we have available. Thank you.
