    Re: Umm... opinions on everything please

    This is kind of a loaded question. If everyone on this forum answered. You will more than likely get a different answer from each member. The best for me may not necessarily be the best to everyone...
  2. Re: Help! 100 psi Chief + vac hose vs Mytee Lite

    Water extraction is going to be more effective than steam on heavy soiling. The water can penetrate deeper into the carpet to remove more. Steam extraction is good at light surface soiling. But in my...
  3. Re: 3D One With A Rotary Buffer and Lake Country Green Pads

    Rotary is a craft that is not learned over night. It took me countless hours to learn how to properly finish down with a rotary. I’m not saying you can’t do it. But I wouldn’t plan on watching some...

    Re: Lighting for ceramic coating

    If you have mad lightning a good color match will help. I think Gyeon makes a diffuser cover for the Scangrip made for spotting coatings.
  5. Re: Crows Feet - Lacquer Cracking - Paint Checking

    Thanks Mike for the write up. I’ve seen this on a lot of Ford F Series Trucks. I’ve always used a microscope to check for crows feet. It has saved me many times.

    By doing any kind of correction...

    Re: Ipa replacement

    Use a prep spray. About every company on AG sells one. You can also pick some up at your local auto parts store. It is going to be way more effective than IPA.
  7. Re: Don't use a rotary buffer to buff out a Motorhome or RV - HOLOGRAM CITY

    Seriously? You can’t blame a tool for this. It is the inexperienced user using the tool. Great work can be achieved with a rotary in the right hands. It just takes patience and experience to learn...

    Re: Best APC comparison

    All APC will be higher pH. All will need to be neutralized/rinse afterwards if used on carpet or upholstery. You would have better results using a dedicated carpet cleaning product and rinse
  9. Re: anyone use the Autogeek Autospector (IOS)?

    Why not have a barcode reader for the VIN using your camera? Most all apps use this option through your camera.

    Re: need help

    Torque is more of a spray sealer. It is one of those products that hammer you on Facebook ads. It is not a true coating. So you are fine. There are many great true coating companies out there that...
  11. Re: What shampoo to use with hot water extractor

    I would suggest to never run a shampoo through your extractor. It is hard on the pump. Use your shampoo as a prespray. Only run a neutralizing rinse through your extractor

    Re: Steam car washes

    They are expensive. But well worth the price in my opinion. Mine has cut my time way down on interiors and things like that. I got a good deal on mine. But I always wondered before if they were worth...

    Re: Steam car washes

    I have owned many Steamers in my life time (McCulloch, VX5000, Euro Steam, Vapor Rino, Fortador). The only two I would recommend for a steam wash would be Optima and Fortador. You could do it with...

    Re: Nextractor for shop vacuum

    I was using the Ridgid SmartCart vacuum with this setup. Awesome vacuum that I still use today. I now run a HydroForce Nautilus extractor.
  15. Re: Festool Rotex sanders/polishers for da car

    I know this is kind of a old thread. But I have switched all of my machines over from Rupes, Flex, and Mirka to Festool. The Festool tools just feel better and give me better results. I use a rotary...

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    I know what you mean. But they are a solid company. I had mine for two and a half years with no problems. They are solid units and good quality. That sounds right. I paid somewhere around $3,600 for...

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    A Vapor Rino, ES2100, VX5000, etc is what you need. To be honest a Fortador is way out of your ballpark. You need something smaller. They will clean whatever you need them to. But are small enough to...

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    I wouldn’t worry about it while it’s running or while you are using. But I wouldn’t leave it or store it outside in the winter for any period of time.

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    The diesel is not bad. I use mine in my garage and you can’t smell any fumes. Plus the hose is 30ft and you can get a 30ft extension hoses.
    No electric steamer is going to have the same performance...

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    I currently have the Fortador Pro Plus, Vapor Rino 220v, Euro-Steam ES2100 and McCulloch. The Fortador blows all the others away. But this is because it is a diesel powered machine and has no loss of...
  22. Re: confused with Menzerna polish product chart

    Not necessarily. The “pre polish” is more of a starting point. Meant to be your first step. So the gloss is really not a factor if it is meant to be followed up. Then you just go up from there with...
  23. Re: Need help to start new detailing business

    I agree with the above statement. I would attend the detailing boot camp and bring your employees with you. I would not worry about coatings or paint correction in the beginning until you have been...

    Re: Pixie foam pads

    Will they be releasing a 2” backing plate? I thought it was kind of odd the kit didn’t come with one.
