    Re: Rinseless/waterless version of reset?

    I use and like Griots BSR as I don't want any enhancers, just a pure wash. I'm a little confused though as you say Pure removes everything, yet you say say that Frothe has the best cleaning. When you...

    Re: Interior products.

    I've used a few interior detailers - Griots most often, and sometime Herrenfahrt Dashboard Detailer - leaves a nice satin sheen and most recently I coated the entire interior with PBL Leather and...

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Wow, that's a lot of crap to deal with. I see you like your Mazdas. Mine is new to me, but it's a nice ride.

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Thanks, yeah pinstriping (hand painted) ain't for everyone, but I feel it works to bring some life to that polymetal gray color.

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I have a renewed respect for the pro detailers! I also found out wheel cleaners are better suited for wheels - not eyes...:(

    Wheels and drums

    So I'm intent on doing the prep and coating process this weekend. Going to coat the tires and wheels. I don't have a lift and don't feel like removing the tires. For the wheel drums, would you still...
  8. Re: What is your favorite microfiber towel for waterless MAINTENANCE wash?

    Good question, Mike.

    I do have a nice selection of MF towels - mostly from Griots, so the other day I called and asked them just that - what is the recommended towel for a WW (and Rinseless)...

    Re: What to use to protect Tesla White seats?

    I'm with you on the seat covers. Just takes away the look and feel of the car. Now, if it's true as @dwalake mentioned (and no reason not to believe that) it makes caring for them even easier. I...

    Re: dry - faded - plastic trim

    Did the same with my Crosstrek this weekend and couldn't be easier to apply. Hoping for the same longevity as you. Next time, I would buy direct, rather than getting them from Griot's - saves coin.
  11. Re: For those washing their cars weekly or fortnightly (LOL!), how do you clean and re-dress tires?

    Same here with the water based coatings - getting a few weeks at most - and that's with light driving in good weather. I just cleaned and coated my Crosstrek's tires and rims Friday. And will be...
  12. Quick question on engine/engine bay cleaning

    I know most modern cars have engines that are supposed to be shielded from water damage and by that I am referring to a quick hose wash/rinse, not getting stuck in a flood. I'm thinking of cleaning...
  13. Re: Two questions - rims that won't come clean and waterless wash (unrelated)

    Issue 2 - I would not use any waterless, rinseless or 2 bucket wash/shampoo that had any gloss enhancers or waxes in it if I planned to do what you are planning.

    Re: Ugh - Correcting Paint after "Dealer Prep"

    Happened to me at Audi a few ago, told them not to wash and yep, washed. Luckily, there weren't any obvious swirls - or maybe I just didn't want to bring out a light and check for them. Some people,...

    Re: Detail over multiple weeks?

    Phew, that's a lotta work - sounds like your car has been taken care of. 48 hours should be more than enough time for rain not to effect it.

    Re: Griot’s 3 in 1 Ceramic Longevity & upkeep

    Oh, I did not say it was superior - though I have read some comments that it is. I am saying that I am more than satisfied with both the cleaning ability and the gloss it leaves behind. If you'd...
  17. Re: Unexpected Update on Flex Wax (Graphene) durability

    Don M,

    Glad it went well, as others have said there is bird poop and there is bird poop, but I think the biggest factor working in your favor was the fact that your car was in the garage all that...
  18. Re: To those who do not have access to a garage....

    Thanks All.

    A further "investigation" on my part revealed that if I do a little "furniture" moving aka my daughter's 3 drum sets and my wife's gardening stuff, I have enough room to have my...

    Re: Newb with questions about Subaru paint.

    Agree with the above posts - just another dealer way to get unsuspecting customers to open their wallets a little deeper. I have had 2 Subarus - one a 2006 Outback which we traded for a 2021...
  22. Re: To those who do not have access to a garage....

    Thank you Mike for doing the heavy lifting! Yeah, my plan was to do it in 2 days - all prep one day and coat the next, starting early in the morning to give it maximum drying time. But I think I'M...

    Dang, I thought I had replied. Duh. It's Fictech Crystal.
  24. Re: To those who do not have access to a garage....

    Don,

    Sorry, I wasn't clear. After the coating is applied, I was concerned about the next morning's like dew.
  25. To those who do not have access to a garage....

    So, in the upcoming weeks - as weather permits, I'm going to decon and coat my car. I may not have access to a garage, but how much of a problem is the next day's early morning dew going to create...
