  1. Re: 1st time machine compounding, a bit disappointed

    My only addition would be the fact a rubbing compound or even Menz 400 might not be needed on a Toyota. That paint is VERY soft and easy to correct. I've done quite a bit of correction with just a...

    Re: Ceramic Coating

    Three layers of a coating will last a long time and your car will look great, but it won't make it resistant to swirls. Esoteric will be able to polish out all the swirls you have today, but over...

    Re: Can we cut the SiO2 coating nonsense out?

    Those are pretty disapointing results from the McKee's. I used the original version and was able to get 18 months of visable performance by only doing routine washes and a wipe down with a QD spray....

    Re: Most Cut / Best Finish

    This is a good example of the trade-offs you can make. In this case, a more agressive orange pad with a milder polish gets you about the similar results as a less agressive pad with a more agressive...

    Re: hairdresser's car

    It is interesting to see how things have changed over the years.

    Growing up in the 70's and 80's, I got my hair cut at a barber shop. The barbers were all guys in their 40's and 50's. The only...

    Re: Most Cut / Best Finish

    How hard is the paint on your Nissan? If it is like many Japanese vehicles, it will be pretty soft and you won't need a heavy compound. A good finishing polish should do the trick.

    My wife's...

    Re: hairdresser's car

    Exactly. Or someone who is very narrow minded in their view of the car world and doesn't understand that size and power ISN'T all that matters.



    As it should be. I find them too small for me,...

    Re: hairdresser's car

    I think it's meant to be reflect the type of car a female hairdresser would drive. A smaller, "cute" car that is simply something to be seen in and no real performance.

    Typically this label has...

    Re: Car commercials are the worst

    For me the Chevy "Real People" adds are nauseating. The comments the people make are as if they have never sat in a car before and have no idea of what is on sale today. I rarely watch live TV...
  10. Re: New: Blackfire Bug Blocker - confused on application...

    If you pull up the product description on the AG store, it seems to describe it as a temporary road trip or drive-through-the country-at-peak-bug-season type product. I think the 48 hour time frame...
  11. Re: M205 Then Straight to Sealant? [ Or Dawn Wash Or IPA Wipedown After M205 ]

    Same here. Never had a single problem going from polish strait to sealant or wax.

    I'll add another vote to never using Dawn on a car. In addition to not having the sufrance lubricants car...

    Re: Can we cut the SiO2 coating nonsense out?

    Along with SWETM's advice on the packaging being a clue, also look at the durability claims on the product pages. While you're results may vary, if a product claims to get 3+ years you should easily...

    Re: Pressure washer

    Feel and even water behavior isn't always a good indicator of whether the wax is still there. The condition of the paint and particulates in the air (dust, pollen, etc) can make it feel differently...

    Re: Poor boys black hole glaze

    It will work the best and last the longest if it is applied under a wax/sealant and not over it. I've never applied a glaze on top of an LSP.

    I've never applied BlackHole by hand, but found it...

    Re: Hang in there Ronkh!

    Wow! So sorry to hear the sad news.

    I too never had a chance to meet Ron, and may have only had passing conversations here or on Autopia with him. However, the outpouring of grief and loss...
  16. Re: What causes black paint to look "gray" in sunlight?

    Just throwing out another option.

    I've never used Fuzion, but could it be "sweating" in high heat/humidty like Collinite 845 does? With 845, if you put it a little too thick it will haze up in...

    Poll: Re: Satin titanium or black wheels?

    I voted satin titanium. Black wheels hide the design while sitting still and from a distance all you see is a black space where the wheels are supposed to be. Even when black wheels were everywhere...

    Ferrari is no longer a part of Fiat. They were spun off as an independant organization in 2016. Ferrari finally splits from Fiat-Chrysler Side note: this is why they are ending their engine...

    Very good points, but another hurdle and one that is sometimes harder and more expensive is the EPA certification of the car. An automaker has to pay to have each unique engine/transmission...

    Re: Which to use to prep for Gtechniq CSL?

    Microfiber pads seems really agressive for a brand new car. Even the hard paint you'll find on a BMW.

    Using nothing but a medium polishing pad (Lake Country white Flat and Thin Pro's) and a mild...

    At this point, my guess is it has already been tested and certified by the federal government. The IIHS will probably have to wait until production models are available for them to purchase and then...

    Re: Some nice pads for softer paint....

    I love the LC Flat pads. All I use are those and the Thin Pro's.

    I can use a finishing polish on the white to clean up my daily drivers with soft paint. On hard German paint like what you see...
