    We need to come up with a weekend deal for people further away. But when we put on weekend classes, nobody shows up.

    We put 1 clinic on every month. Next month is prime and block clinic. Last month was a I-CAR panel bond adhesive clinic.

    You guys get me a place to spray and a group of 15 or so people and pitch in $40-$50 each to cover lodge and transportation, we can do a 2 day weekend class. I will load the truck with paint, sandpaper and spray guns and drive north.

    Ever make any how to videos? Not as good as hands on instruction but next best thing.

    No, I want to, because I test so many products on Saturdays, because it's slower and the phone isn't ringing every 30 seconds. It gives me time to put products to the edge of blowing up. My training classes are a little different, you go to a major paint company paint class, they make it look easy and perfect with book work then doing a little hands on. When I do a clinic it's mainly hands on and intinually screwing stuff up so I can teach how to fix. The way I see it, anybody can get lucky and get a good looking paint job from time to time. I would rather show you how to fix a screw up on the spot.
    I will swap YouTube training for some paint training if anyone is interested.

    Paint Guru, this sounds great and I'm not all that far away in Griffin. But unfortunately on the 19th I'm scheduled for a cataract operation on my right eye, had the left a couple years ago, now need the right one.
    Is there some way I could keep track of what you're offering in the future and when?

    Yes usually it's the 3rd Thursday of every month. Next month is a blocking and priming clinic. If you want more in depth clinic do one of our Saturday classes. We don't have anything scheduled for a Saturday clinic yet. We will probably wait until April on a Saturday class. But call my wife at her store and give her your email or number, and she usually sends reminders out for clinics. 678-982-7820
    Good luck on the operation!

    That sounds great, and I'll conact your wife and give her my contact info, and I can come weekdays or weekends as I'm retired, have son restoring/restyling/modifying OT Mustang who I'll talk to as he may want to attend some of the Sat. classes in future also.
     
  18. I'm in. I am just a old car hobbyist who took intro to auto body at a votec center for continuing education for two semesters in 1994. Painted a half dozen old cars since then and I have a new project and have never done base/clear, looking forward to it.

    Thanks for all our HAMB guys who came out to support us last night. We had more than expected show up, and I hope it was informative!

    Cataract surgery is apparently a success, and I hope to attend the next session.
    Have signed up for the email announcements.

    That is my primary area of interest. Unfortunately I am out of town that weekend. If you have the class without me, I will likely bug you continuously for another class!
