    "Body School"

    Randy Albright, the technical representative from US Chemical who presented at Wintertech, has volunteered to put on a one-day school on the use of body products in restoration.

    One of the WinterTech attendees asked about the classes that randy taught and whether club member could join them. Randy's response was not to mix body shop employees with hobbyists but to shorten the presentation from 2-3 days to a single day. The scope of the class should be similar to the WinterTech presentation but in more depth and demonstrations. It should cover everything in the paint preparation process from covering bare metal, filling spots, final filler applications, sanding, color sanding and more.

    It would be held at the US Chemical facility in Maissillon OH (near Canton OH, about 45 minutes from Ellis's). If anyone is interested, please post here or send me an email. We need about 10 attendees to make it work.

    I would depending on the schedule
    time and if I didn't already have something scheduled. I talked with Randy before dinner at the Tech session and I think I could learn a lot from his class.
