    Just a guess... I don't see much content from anyone else anymore...


    Thanks for sharing! You know I love the history (Also read on MOLs site)

    I can [mostly] type, but so new to detailing/paint correction/what-have-you, I don't know enough to write about. PLUS, you already have the other book in the works (even if it's in your head, notes, etc).

    When did Meguiar's come out with "their" first polisher? A rebranded Porter Cable?

    Late 1980's.

    I went to work for Meguiar's in 1987 and I think it was in the Meguiar's line-up at that time.

    I can't find anyone that remembers? I'll check with Mike Pennington, he might remember.
