    Re: Blackfire one

    Dr Oldz experience with one step is the same as i had with it.

    The level of cut actually suprised me, and the finish was outstanding

    I really can't speak to durability because i topped it with...
  3. Re: Need to Replace My Rear Bumper. What Issues?

    Hey mk9750

    The paint match issue is very difficult and i don't have a good answer other than having it blended on the car.
  4. Re: Need to Replace My Rear Bumper. What Issues?

    Hey mk9750.

    1, yes paint to match doesn't always match, you will usually have 3+ alternates for 1 paint code. Orange peel is usually not a big deal, unless its a tri coat color.

    2, behind...

  6. Re: Sorry, not a detailing question exactly, but I need help removing a windshield mounted phone holder

    I would try a plastic razor blade, it may take a little work but it will come off.

    I have had one do the same thing before.
  7. Re: What material are the Z71 door siill plates?

    You are correct they are SS, and honestly i think you would have to put a clear bra type material on it

    or just polish it regularly, the SS insert scratches so easily its almost a no win situation.
  8. Re: Review: BLACKFIRE One-Step Cleaner/Wax by Mike Phillips

    I used the orange LC thin pro pads with my 21 MM da with great results.

    Your paint will dictate what type of pad is acceptable, do a test spot with both pads

    You may like the results of one pad...
  9. Re: Silicon Products + Bodywork/Paint Work issues

    Silicone will definitely create fish eyes in paint, but normally it will all be sealed in after the first clearcoat job has dried.

    I have had fish eyes come back coat after coat of clear, but that...

    Re: Pick 1 - Wax - Sealant - Coating

    Synthetic sealant, i can get 6 plus months out of FK 1000, I'm going to polish my car at least once a year so no reason to go with a coating.
  11. Re: For those of you who have a Forced DA, when you you reach for your Rotary ?

    Ditto to what Dr Olds said, the versatility of a rotary with all the pads and extensions make it a great tool.

    Re: Clear Coat Question for the pro’s

    My guess would be solvent pop, it could be wet sanded and polished out.

    If it's factory clear, be cautious you don't have many mils to work with.

    Poll: Re: Chrome or Black?

    I would go the plasti dip route, that way you could live with it for a while, and if you like it enough go with paint.

    I like the chrome on my car, but my car is ruby red.

    Re: Is this to the metal?

    From your pic the underlying color looks light gray or green, that would be the primer or sealer.

    I would just get some touch up paint and put on it.
