    Re: Non abrasive cleaner wax

    In the DG line, both 501 and 105 have some good cleaning properties, with 501 being the more aggressive of the two.

    Re: Regular wax on rims. ??

    I've been using FK1000p on wheels for a few years now. I agree a dedicated coating may be better, but I've been very pleased with the level of protection and longevity. I've tried Collinites, both...

    Re: Cleaning White Car

    I agree with using a cleaner wax or AIO periodically, especially on lighter colors. My favorite when serious correction is not needed is DG501. It never ceases to amaze me how it makes white paints...
  6. Re: The Secret to Removing Oxidation and Restoring a Show Car Finish to Antique Single Stage Paints

    I've done dozens of M07 treatments, but never had one rained on. How long was it outside? Did it get dirty or just get wet? If it just got rained on, I'd be tempted to just proceed with wipe-off. You...
  7. Re: Okay...who’s done it? Polish a ceramic stove top with a DA?

    I've done my Bosch smoothtop a couple times. My wife normally keeps it up by hand, using the polish recommended by the dealer. When the stain level gets ahead of her, she calls for help and I bring...

    Re: Thoughts on using waterblades

    You certainly won't regret your purchase of PFM's.
    Like others, I use my waterblade for glass to save both time and towels.

  10. Re: what jackstands to get so i don't get crushed

    If you've got good quality jack stands and firm level ground, I wouldn't worry. I've been in the car business my entire adult life and prior to the days when every mechanic had a lift, jack stands...

    Re: Poor boys black hole glaze

    In my experience, yes, but not a night and day difference.
    I just recently prepped my El Camino with 30+ year old OEM lacquer for an annual judged show that I enter. Some of the panels have nasty...
  12. Thanks to Mike Phillips and the AGO community!

    Re: Sealant comparison

    I'll be interested in seeing the results of that comparison, as I have and use both. FCS / AW is more user-friendly IMO, less sensitive to temp or humidity variations, but your longevity stats with...
  14. Re: Daily ‘clean ups’...Best process & products?

    IMO, QD's , when used on a dry vehicle, are only for those which have acquired dust while parked inside and stationary. I use GG's Best of Show, Speed Shine, and Kenotech on my Dark Burgundy El...

    Re: Waxing and Polishing Towels?

    I have way too many towels, but I'm always on the watch for something that's a good performer and a good value. There are some exceptions, but I prefer edgeless construction, the same nap on both...

    Poll: Re: Favorite Waterless Wash

    I've been using 1:8. It streaks some on my Black Lacrosse DD, which is coated with WG, but works great on the rest of the family fleet, all of which just have a sealant or wax. I'd be interested too...

    Re: Flagged tipped brush & Duragloss #253

    I used the Zep Purple at no stronger than 1:4 and it did well on the nastiest of tires. However, as mentioned, the fumes are atrocious if you're working in an enclosed space. Based on the...

    Back in 1971, I did a full lacquer repaint on my 1967 Malibu from white to copper. The painter didn't trust me with a rotary, since it was finished with a couple coats of clear lacquer over the...

    Re: Mother’s CMX is here!

    Nice to hear of that property of CMX. I just don't have the time available to keep the family daily driver fleet clean with three of them parked outside 24/7, so anything that helps is worth adding...
  20. Re: Is GSM on microfiber important for rinseless wash?

    I use either the Meguiar's or Blackfire MF mitt for the majority of my rinseless washes, but also use these:Edgeless Microfiber Quick Detail Towel
    They're equally plush on both sides, so you get to...

  23. Re: Question about wash/dry technique with ONR/OS, and can you recommend decent microfiber drying towels?

    I do use drying aids, such as Meguiar's D156, Duragloss AW, or various QD's often, but I'm a bit leery about using my best drying towels (GG PFM) with any drying aid, feeling that doing so may...

    Re: Idea for Felt Wheel Liners

    Correct, at least in GM's eyes.

    Re: Protecting Winter Wheels?

    I agree that a coating would be the best option, but I've never done it, even though I do paint coatings for winter. I just use a couple coats of FK1000p. Gets me thru PA winters with ease, just...
