  1. Re: Blasted AC spec sticker off - how to stick it back?

    +1 for Paul's just get a new one. Most of the underhood stickers on the cars I work on have a part number on them, you could look it up that way.

    As someone who uses that sticker as part of their...

    Re: G9 gets hot

    I think the key words from your post were “Yellow foam B&S Backing Plate”. When Griot’s did their newest generation of machines, the backing plate is designed into the cooling system for how it...

    Re: New Opti-Coat Hyper Seal

    That's wild. Based on your prep work I would think there's no reason it should perform so poorly!

    I think what Evo was mentioning about soap residue was that soap from your wash (after it had been...
  4. Re: Backing Plate Swap - 5 inch backing plate for the Griot's Garage G9

    Just did quick google to find out what a WP900 is - that kind of machine is really just more of a wax spreader. If you're looking to do paint correction, I'd consider making the investment and going...

    Re: New Opti-Coat Hyper Seal

    What car wash are you using? Just playing devil's advocate, Any chance it's not rinsing fully thus covering up Hyper Seal's behavior?

    Thanks for sharing!

    That's pretty sweet. Especially nice to not have a huge investment in equipment!

    Re: Chlorine dioxide and ozone gen.

    This one's new to me - How do you do a ClO2 treatment? What equipment is required?

    Sounds appealing if it's less degrading to the interior materials than a long ozone treatment sounds like it can...

    Re: Chlorine dioxide and ozone gen.

    I would leave it in during treatment so you help your treatment stay inside the car while it works.

    Re: Noob question on beading & water spots

    DLC - is that the Opticoat version or a new iteration on the classic blue Optimum No Rinse Wash and Shine?

    Just to clarify. I think my gallon was listed as new and improved when I got it, but you...

    Re: Noob question on beading & water spots

    Sorry for a side tangent from your original post -

    I will say I like regular ONR at work. I'm a wrench, not a detailer, but I use it for cleaning switch gear/plain plastic on dashes - it really...

    Re: buy new, used, or lease a car?

    I've only ever bought used due to my car wants not lining up with my wallet's can-do.

    When we bought my wife's Q5, we got the nicest/lowest mile/newest we could swing/find at the time. It was...

    I was excited about OptiSeal from all the reading I had done on it, but like you found it just didn't seem to last long nor have behavior that had me excited to use it over other products in my...

    Re: Removing double-sided tape

    I'm with Paul.

    At work, when I'm removing wheel weight tape residue, I'll:
    Get a rag wet with adhesive remover, then apply it over the offending residue and allow it to soak it in. This will...

    Re: Opti-Clean

    Seems unusual to have a waterless wash you can't use too much of. That's not a knock against your use of it, just not a feature I'd want if I was reaching for a product for cleaning up light dirt -...

    Re: Griots G9 worth it? advice please

    I can chime in having had a first and third gen GG6 (the predecessors to the G9) as well as a G9 (and G8, but I'll stay on topic).

    I'm gonna go the other way a bit here and say that a 5" plate on...

    I merely said, for myself I don't care for those vents being chrome. I took no shots at the car design/quality/performance, and even clarified I don't like when other...

    Re: You detail cars?

    Good grief! I fear the foam (cushions), but amazing turnaround!

    Whadja use?
  19. Re: Most German Korean I've Detailed Yet....2022 Stinger GT2 in Ascot Green Metallic

    Still chrome. :laughing: :dblthumb2: :D
  20. Re: Most German Korean I've Detailed Yet....2022 Stinger GT2 in Ascot Green Metallic

    I'm with you - not a fan of chrome for those vents. BMW did that on some of their cars too and (to me) it works to cheapen the look of the car.

    I'm kinda the opposite way, actually - I love that it's being driven, and it shows how well they're taking care of it.

    I had a first generation (E30) M3 that I absolutely loved - but after it...

    Re: Griot's Rinseless Wash

    It might have gotten lost coming over from the previous page - they mentioned using it as an interior cleaner, I was curious what ratio they decided to use for that.
