    Don't need to, but on a serious note if you knew the truth about what I think you are talking about you would have a whole different view. So we will leave it at that Ryan.

    +1 There were some great craftsman. How do we get them over here? Scottwax, they guy from Hungary who did all the Sick Ferrari's? Not sure who more pro's don't post their work here?

    Autopia really had alot of before and after and in process pictures and steps that have helped me get better and also decide to try some products.

    Why do we need them when we have Mike Phillips?

    Because this forum is run by a vendor, and there are some folks who don't want to be seen as supporting the vendor for whatever reason. I know Autopia was a vendor too, at least at one time, but it was a forum long before that.

    Personally, I'd rather just go wherever the best information resources are. Hence why I visit this site.

    Sadly, I very much agree with both points.

    I am still hoping for some type of big time turn around. I am probably being far too optimistic though.

    Man, talk about crash and burn...

    Exactly right.

    I know some people are concerned about posting solely on a detailing forum that is run/controlled by a vendor for obvious reasons.

    But...as stated, Autopia became a vendor itself. And yes, it did cause some issues (though I thought it was handled pretty well overall).

    Al, good to see you here. I guess I get their reasoning but they we such a great source of hands on info. They had done so many cars they actually were able to give combo's of polish and pads for each make and model. I got many Pm's over the years from them with pointed specific information.
