  1. Re: Can I Get Some Quick Guidance With My New CarPro Products?

    Interesting, never heard of anyone using Spotless to clean the wheels.
  2. Re: Few questions regarding ppf for headlights.

    STEK does appear to have less orange peel than Xpel or Suntek but like you, I also see it there.

    Applying clear coat to the headlights will also introduce orange peel unless you lay enough coats...
  3. Re: Few questions regarding ppf for headlights.

    Yeah, ceramic coating does basically nothing for scratches, it’s just too thin. It helps keep it clean and much easier to wash, that’s the benefit of the coating. You may get a tiny bit of...
  4. Re: Few questions regarding ppf for headlights.

    Ceramic coating will offer no scratch protection. Ideally you get PPF and then ceramic coating over that.

    I agree with PPF adding orange peel. It's not as bad as just a vinyl wrap but it's...
  5. Re: Can I Get Some Quick Guidance With My New CarPro Products?

    I normally use the entire 16oz bottle in one car so that tells you how much to apply. I also don’t want to store the bottle because it stinks so bad. Normally can do the entire car at once but if...
  6. Re: Can I Get Some Quick Guidance With My New CarPro Products?

    Iron X works better on dry panels so it’s not diluted. But don’t let the product dry, give it a few minutes and spread with a mitt if you want but rinse it off before it dries.

    Spotless you can...

    Re: De Lamination or Scuff Marks?

    Definitely looks scuffed from curbing. Look at that wheel and you can tell how talented that driver is.

    Also, applying a coating to brand new tires is not recommended, you should clean them...

    Re: The Post a Picture of Your Ride as it Sits Thread

    omg, that's a lot of tree sap on that car!

    Re: Hand Application of One-Step Sealant

    Thanks. My first few pictures in that gallery were with the Wolfgang Sealant I recommended. Nowadays I use ceramic coatings. A lot more work at first but then it's so much easier to keep the car...

    Re: Hand Application of One-Step Sealant

    Welcome.

    If you're hand applying it and not polishing, I would suggest skipping clay bar because that can leave marring on the paint that won't come off unless you polish it.

    Also, I think I...

    Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    Yeah, he should bring it back to the person that coated it and have them wash it once, in front of him, so he can see if the same thing happens there. If it doesn't, then he has learned what they...

    Re: Mike Phillips is right...

    I considered getting one yesterday. But I currently only care for my car which is freshly corrected and coated so it will be a while before I can use any polisher and rarely would I need that much...

    Re: Bmw x3 2019 steering wheel scratch help?

    With time the abrasion from you touching it / wiping it will make it less noticeable. But can’t completely fix it unless you replace the leather. Some people use a magic eraser, which is abrasive,...
  14. Re: Daily sap on car...the war is on, could use some advice!

    My brother's town in NJ is the opposite, can't park on the street overnight. I once was parked on the street and before going to bed it was pouring, I was like screw that, I'm not moving the car to...

    Re: What is your current favorite waterless wash?

    I currently use McKee's 37 N-914. I've used ONR and Uber before but N-914 is better than both of those. I have used Ech2o a couple of times and it was fine. Although I didn't see any streaking...
  16. Re: Daily sap on car...the war is on, could use some advice!

    Did you unpack already? If not, move again, buyers remorse :p
  17. Re: Daily sap on car...the war is on, could use some advice!

    Every time you wipe the coating, be it washing, drying, or to feel the slickness, it’s abrading the finish and therefore reducing the life of the coating. So yes, daily wipe down will reduce the...

    Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    Says right on the package of the towels to wash before first use. I don't think it came from the towel but it could be. Doesn't hurt to wash it and try again.

    I see you mention his car was professionally coated but do we know what coating was used? Might help narrow down what's going on if it's some coating that needs a topper before it leaves the shop. ...

    I wonder if he's rinsing properly. Could be using a power washer that puts out the pressure but very low volume of water and not really rinsing it all. Because of the pressure he thinks it's rinsed...

    Re: Gyeon CanCoat vs Gyeon Trim

    The only trim coating I've used is Dlux and I haven't had a reason to change. Like Guz said, it's nice that it also works on wheels and plastics. Very versatile and "cheap" as it covers several...

    Re: When coarse isn't enough

    If they are deep enough the nail catches, then it's too deep to correct.
    If they are not that deep yet but still pretty deep, wet sanding is necessary but you have to think if it's worth removing...

    Re: Micro-marring on black paint

    I don’t know if your Golf has hard paint but I’m guessing maybe it does and when you use a soft pad and 205 it might have just enough cut to scratch it but can’t correct the defects. Try a polishing...
