    Being honest there. Couldn't tell.
    So you were your own guinea pig?? It really is hard to find people who.... Nevermind any of that talk. Their cars look like crap and that means they're the crazy ones. Lol.
    But seriously, you were your own guinea pig? Lol.

    P.s. Thank you Detail Kitty, for showing me how to spell guinea pig. You're way better than iphone, or Siri, or whoever, you're better.

    Lol took a few attempts to figure it out myself. Same as you... wasn't coming up right away, but normally auto-correct jumps right in?

    Thumbs up Re: What did you do today detailing related?

    I went down to the garage to clean my wife's Mazda 6, it was salt encrusted to the scale of 11!

    For this job I decided to go with the 2BM method, asking my Aqua sponge to take on the task. I then reached for an old friend, WCU and added 2 ounces and filled the bucket to the 3.5 gallon level and then filled the other bucket with clean water. Before I got started I decided to clean the tires and wheels and for this task I reached for 2 products, Bleache-White for the tires and Meg's Mirror Brite for the wheels. I sprayed a fair amount on the wheels and I let it sit. Once a couple minutes went by I grabbed my tire cleaner and small bucket and got to scrubbing. I sprayed the sidewalls down and they turned brown right away but I also sprayed another coat of Meg's MB on the wheels and scrubbed the spokes and barrels, then scrubbed the tires with my trusty Mother's tire brush (if you don't have one of these, GET ONE!) I rinsed the tires and wheels down and then got ready to wash the car. I always make extra RW because I wanna pre-soak the hell out of the car when its really dirty and it paid off, WGU knocked it out of the park, as usual!

    Once I was done I sprayed a little bit of WW onto a designated MF towel and wiped down the tires and wheels and moved the car back into her parking spot. I then reached for "a tire coating" and applied a thin coat to my own car and then went over to her car and applied a coat to hers as well. This "a tire coating" is a great product and I will be able to talk about it more pretty soon but rest assured, its well worth waiting for, this I can ASSURE YOU!

    Re: What did you do today detailing related?

    I tried out two new products today. Mickey's 37 N914 rinseless wash as well as Polish Angel high gloss.

    First of all, I'll give my overall impression that this is a very good rinseless wash. I definitely can see why this rinseless wash would be attractive to a lot of detailers since it leaves nothing behind supposedly. I found that to be the case when I washed my car today.

    I initially hosed down my car at the coin-op to blast away all the salt and grime. I then drove it home. While it was still wet I started applying McKees. Like others I noticed the foaming right away. This occurred with gentle agitation.



    Well I found that this product had a good amount of lubricity -- more than ONR -- I still feel that Uber has the advantage in terms of lubricity.

    This is another thing that I noticed. Uber left the surface of my paint reasonably slick; McKees left the surface more like it was when I originally applied Mohs coating. Mohs coating had a slightly grabby feeling. If you've ever applied EXO or even PBL, those surfaces are very slick. So this makes me conclude that McKee's doesn't fact leave nothing behind.

    The car was clean based on my informal white glove test.

    I been applied polish angel. The car looks fantastic in my opinion. High Gloss was very easy to apply and buff just like the rest of the Polish Angel products.
