    Re: Coating Maintenance

    Ech2O is another drying aid/wipe down product which works well with coatings. With Ech2O you don't have to play chemist and mix other products. Simply dilute 20:1 and you're ready. I really like...

    Re: My new car: 2000 Cadillac DHS

    Wow! Great job. With the level of work and the results, it would almost classify as a "restoration" if the car was older!

    Re: Black Painted Rims

    If you car puts out lots of heavy brake dust, P21S may not cut it. I used it while owning a BMW years ago and found my wash soap actually cleaned better...and was far cheaper.

    I'd recommend the...
  4. Re: Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Wheel Coating - Chemical Resistance

    I would say, "it depends". In a mild climate where the wheels are frequently washed, I'd agree you could probably get by with just soap. However, I noticed this winter after weeks of salt, grime,...
  5. Re: Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Wheel Coating - Chemical Resistance

    I am now on my second set of coated wheels. My first were the summer wheels on my previous car coated with CQuartz "classic" paint coating. The current wheels are my winters wheels coated in...

    Re: Salt dust

    Unfortunately, that is life this time of year in our part of the country. I have found my cars do the same thing in the dry portions of winter. Until there are a couple days of really hard rain to...

    Re: Poorboy's World Non-Acid Wheel Cleaner

    Thanks!

    Great questions.

    - I did not dilute the wheel cleaner. Regardless of whether I'm using a power washer or not, I always rinse off the wheel prior to spraying any wheel cleaner so it...

    Re: Hide scratches on Black SUV

    While it won't be a permanent solution to your problem, a glaze like Poorboy's World Black Hole would do the trick. Apply it after polishing and before you apply the sealant/wax.
  9. Re: Ceramic coatings application vs ambient temperature....

    Nothing new to add, but just another data point. I too tried an application of CQuartz UK in weather which was 60's-ish in my garage and pretty humid. Flashing was taking upwards of 10 minutes or...

    Re: Poorboy's World Non-Acid Wheel Cleaner

    I keep the wheels clean on all my cars, so heavily crusted barrels will never be an issue. I'm not sure this wheel cleaner would be the right tool for that type of cleaning.

    The one thing I found...

    Poorboy's World Non-Acid Wheel Cleaner

    A rare break in the winter weather gave me a chance to wash my car and do a quick review of the Poorboy's Non-Acid Wheel Cleaner I've been using for a while. Since the product was released, I don't...

    Re: Coating Maintenance

    Great advice from my experience with coatings.

    In the winter I'll notice the lower door areas and the rear of vehicles will loose some of their water sheeting ability due to the salt and grime. ...

    On my wife's maroon metallic Highlander I've received a lot of compliments after using Collinite 845 sealant or CQuartz UK coating.

    Re: Paint colors

    Right now I think Ford's Velocity Blue and ruby red paint are some of the best looking paint colors on any car by any manufacturer. And I'm not a fan of Ford products!

    Re: Paint colors

    While I'll always be an advocate for black, I really like cars with actual colors rather than the same boring white/silver/gray/black paint which seems to dominate the market and the roads these...
  16. Re: Should I Purchase a Jet Black Metallic Car ?

    I've found some of the same issues to be just a big of problem with other colors too. I had a silver car and another in white with primer appeared to be black so every rock chip created a black...
  17. Re: Should I Purchase a Jet Black Metallic Car ?

    I'm now on my second black metallic car. Doesn't bother me a bit, I just don't let it own me.

    I've owned gray and silver cars and found them to be very unsatisfying when I detailed them. I'd...

    Great write up! This is the only example I can think of which has this many coatings all in one place.

    Re: cheap Non Acidic pH Balanced wheel cleaner

    This is my vote too. Great wheel cleaner.
  20. Re: How safe long term are ceramic coatings on headlights?

    My thoughts too. I know some coatings say they protect from small scratches, but I wouldn't count on it. The advantage to coating a headlight is the UV protection, ease of cleaning, and similar...
  21. Re: How safe long term are ceramic coatings on headlights?

    I apply a coating to my headlights and taillights when coating the rest of the car. I have no expectations of impact protection, but am hoping them protect the lenses from the effects of weather. ...

  23. Re: Matte Black Rims - How to clean in winter?

    Matte wheels in the winter may be harder to clean than those with a normal finish due to the unique maintenance products they require.

    I try to make my winter wheels as easy to clean as possible...

    Re: My white pad turned black!

    I'll through my 2 cents in here.

    As for what caused the pads to turn black, I'd agree with Mike's assessment it is grime the pads picked up. When polishing out my daughter's car for the first...
  25. Re: Reset on non-coating SiO2 stand-alone or toppers?

    I don't know about the maintenance sprays, but the "light" coatings are pretty tough in their own right. I've used CanCoat several times and it's almost as durable as the "regular" coatings overall...
