    That clear vinyl window came out...clear!

    Excellent work on all those cars!!!
    Thank you JustJesus!

    That doesn't detract from the cool factor of this machine though..... I almost wish I needed one. Lol
    Paul buddy, look at it this way - Buy another Car or two & then it would be perfectly suited ...

    Just say’n ..

    Thank you Detailchick.

    Wow, someone stole your 3401!!! That sucks! Sorry to hear.

    Personally - I have had the RUPES Bigfoot Nano iBrid pretty much since it was released & I would imagine by the end of two Months with this Flex PXE 80 I will have used this more than I have the RUPES in all the years I’ve had it.

    Without wanting to spark a RUPES v Flex war - the Flex is everything the RUPES wishes it could be & better.

    As for which way to go - All RUPES or all Flex I think that’s a “use what works for you” situation.

    Nothing wrong with Rupes, but don't go there just because others do! If you like Flex more, stick with Flex.
    Sorry to hear about your 3401 I'd be [extremely upset]

    Anytime, Aaryn!

    It should make it a bit easier on those red Hondas (the dude had FIVE hatchbacks last I was there!). Don't know about turning to gold, though. haha... He only wants a quick enhancement, before he sells them off.

    I'm going to talk to a co-worker into buying my PC. I'll get around to posting the GG3 and PE8 in the next week or two. Hopefully, that helps!

    So it’s been the best part of a Month since we returned from our vacation in the USA, & that means I’ve spent the best part of that time putting some hours in at the shop with the latest additions to my Flex family - the Flex PXE 80 12-EC & the Flex XCE 8-125 18.0 Cordless Polishers.


    Thanks for the update and sharing Aaryn, good to hear you and the family made it home safe and sound.

    I'll share the link to this thread with my friends at FLEX.

    Nice picture!


    Everyone loved the FLEX PiXiE in the boat class but to be fair, everyone also loved the RUPES Nano too!

    I’ve been on the fence so long with the ibrid and now I’m thinking it’s a good thing I didn’t buy one. Thanks for the In depth info and your real world use with it my friend.
