    if i understood you correctly? you guys use tire foam aerosols for wheel wells?

    i have meg's tireshine.. would that work good enough? and you apply it with a toilet brush? (i know you have clearance issues)?

    I dont use the "foam" aerosols, I use the aerosol sprays like Stoners More Shine Less Time. No need for a brush as these shoot a rather nice pattern and easy to dress entire well, just be careful in a breeze.

    I was just reading your post on the detailing of a black C6 Vette. I learned alot and appreciate the time you spent on it. I am going to try to tackle the swirls on my C6 in the spring with a megs da. Need guidance as to what pads and which polish to use? Any suggestions? Thanks very much for your time.

What is the best way of getting there? I can't really get my towel I was using to wipe down the AA tire foam back there, and couldn't really fit the can in there to spray (I didn't want to spray from far away and risk getting a mess all over, including the tread of the tire).

    My tC is stock height as well, so techincally I have a lot of space to work with (so not sure how I'm supposed to do it when I finally get it lowered heh)... how do you do it with your tight wells?

    thanks, sorry for the verbose question
    Get Megs All Season Dressing and a garden sprayer. The wand will get in the tight spots and ASD dries to a nice gloss without buffing!

    I still prefer the Menzerna Ceramiclear polishes (SIP, Nano, and 085rd). The original flat pads are very nice and the newer Hydro-tech pads work well too. With any of the random orbitals I moved to 5.5 inch pads and 5 inch backing pads and never looked back. I do however find the Flex a worthy upgrade and investment too.

    --- just a reminder this post was several years back ---

    When you speak of 'garden sprayer' what are you talking about?

    BTW: killrwheels I saw this was an old thread but I own a C6 also and wanted to check out your process, I'm glad someone resurrected it.

    Beautiful car!
