    Here's some pictures that show the true and accurate condition of the paint. These were taken about 20 minutes ago using my phone camera



    First I frame-up the car





    This is the SCANGRIP Sunmatch II lighting up the paint on the top of the hood...





    This is the SCANGRIP Sunmatch II lighting up the side of the driver's door...





    This is a cropped out section of the above...





    AND --------> All the paint on the entire car looks the same way. It gets worse.... the paint FAILS the Baggie Test!

    Nice, I'm going to pick one of those up at that price. I didn't realize the original griots mini was only a 5mm orbit. I guess that explains why it can't spread wax as evenly as the flex mini with the 12mm orbit?

    I wanted to ask if the new flex pixie is forced rotation?

    Good news and bad news.... first the good new!


    The Kustom 1950 Ford Coupe is here!

    Picture by Yancy





    The bad news is... I didn't collect up any swag at SEMA. I was so busy doing demonstrations at the SONAX, FLEX and LC Power Tools booths that I simply either didn't collect anything or there was simply no "extra" products that companies had on had to give away.

    BUT - if you still want to attend tomorrow night, there will be the new SUPA BEAST and CBEAST to test out, as well as the new Griot's G9.

    Griot's is going to send me the new G8 but it won't be here until next week.

    Also - the new PiXiE is supposed to be delivered this week to Autogeek, if it is here by class time tomorrow I'll do my best to get one for the class.



    Besides that, I'm at home with a cold obtained at SEMA.


    I washed my hands often, tried not to touch anything I didn't have to touch and avoided shaking hands, all to no avail. Ugh...


    But I'm feeling better and will be back to work tomorrow and of course the class will go on as planned.


    Here's another picture from Andre
