    Re: Those who experience snow.

    For me, it's a touchless car wash with an undercarriage spray, then directly home for a rinseless (ONR) wash and 25 minutes or so on wheels and tires. I used to do this a couple of times a month, but...
  2. Re: How-to Remove Fingernail Scratches Behind Door Handles

    That's what I use as well. My hands are too big to get in behind most handles, so the finger pocket applicators are great.

    For my wife's care, instead of coating, I added a protective film in that...

    Re: Will I really see a difference?

    I can address one part of your post very simply.

    I moved from a couple of off brand DAs that spin clockwise to the Flex 3401 with the "backwards" rotation. I had the same trepidation as you. In...

    Re: Gorilla platform ladders dirt cheap! $23.88

    You know, this is a great point! My wife does a lot of painting in the house, and loves that I have the one I had. I bet she'll be happy with a second!

    Re: Gorilla platform ladders dirt cheap! $23.88

    I just grabbed one. Now I have two, and I bet it'll save me 15 minutes a car now. I detest leaning on a car, so I use one on anything but a sports car. Not having to move it back and forth will...
  6. Re: Do you coat (or dress) both sides of your tires?

    I guess I'll be the guy who says yes and no.

    In the spring when I am prepping my regular wheels and tires to go back on the car, I coat the entire wheel, including the barrel, and dress both sides...

    Re: Washing with Microfibers?

    On my own car, I only do rinseless washes, and I use ONR and the Big Red Sponge. No marring whatsoever. You do have to be careful to understand that you are "applying" the ONR, not scrubbing. I was...

    Re: What will your next ride be?

    "I am no longer, and will never be again “beholden to the lender.” Thanks to Dave Ramsey."

    Yeah, I'm a big Dave Ramsey fan too. Last thing I have is 14 months on my mortgage that we'll pay in 5,...
  10. Re: LC Power Tools UDOS 5 in 1 Polisher - What's in the Box?

    This looks like a tremendous feat of engineering. As I have been debating my next tool purchase, and this incorporates all three of the tools I am considering, it seems like it would be perfect.

    Re: What will your next ride be?

    "My only hang up with the G70 is the lack of rear seat space. It's very tight. I'd go G80 if I needed to carry passengers."

    Thanks for the tip. I've not yet started looking seriously, and suspect...

    Genesis 70 (maybe G80 if the market does well the next 6 months or so), in Mallorca blue.

    I have owned Hyundai products for the last 16 years until I was given a Lexus ES350. Love the Lexus, but I...
  13. Re: I switched from Griots G9 to Flex 3401.. My thoughts..

    Dr. Oldz,

    That's an interesting point about the amount of product, and one I will certainly try to confirm. I've tended to follow the directions on most product bottles that call for three - four...
  14. Re: LIVE Detailing Class - Polishing GLASS to remove Pits, Wiper Marks & Scratches

    Mike,

    I watched this evening. As usual, great info. I think the most valuable take away for me was the investment doing this will take. I bet you would use a half bottle of the abrasive for the...

    Re: Call to Ban YouTubers

    I LOVE KC styled ribs, but Texas style brisket can't be beat.

    Oh, and I washed my car today.

    Re: Your thoughts on 15,000 mile oil changes..

    The transmission fluid in my Lexus is supposed to be "lifetime". In order to change it, requires serious gymnastics, a colostomy bag with a hanger, and I think you have to have a permission slip...

    Re: Your thoughts on 15,000 mile oil changes..

    I got this car when my father in law had to stop driving, almost three years ago. At the time, as a 10 year old car, it had 23,000 miles on it, and was pristine. I've since put 90,000 miles on it in...

    Re: Your thoughts on 15,000 mile oil changes..

    My 2007 Lexus ES 350 owner's manual calls for an oil change every 7,500 miles. That seems like too big an interval, and one that I struggle to remember (or at least did struggle before I began using...
  21. Re: What Chemicals Are Used In Automated Car Washes?

    I can't answer your question, so my note is just taking up space. But during the winter, I run my car through the touchless wash on the way home before I do a rinseless wash, just to get the heavy...

    Wookies,

    I don't think my expectations are out of line. It worked for the four months I had it last fall, but it was buried up on a high shelf and the first I pulled it down to use it was two...
