    Re: Crows Feet - Lacquer Cracking - Paint Checking

    Thanks for the update Mike!

    I have these on my 2000 Frontier. They seem to get worse after polishing, so IMO it is the heat of the polishing that makes them worse. The front quarter panel that...

    Re: Porsche Paint Checking, Solution?

    I have these on my 2000 Frontier. Sadly they are under the clearcoat, so no way to fix them from the top. They seem to get worse after polishing, so I think it is the heat of the polishing that...
  3. Re: How would you clean these? -The Rubber on Running Boards

    I'm with you Dr.
    The cars with running boards I work on are pre 1930, so I rarely anything stronger than ONR. Maybe some 10:1 APR on both sides of the tires, but ONR for the wooden or wire...

    If you are looking to wipe off the surface mold, try diluted distilled white vinegar. And borax on the carpets once you finish help keep the mold down. And like the others said, use a couple pairs...

    Re: Had a visitor to the garage today

    We have a few black racers in our yard (we backup on some woods) and appreciate them but I stay far away. They like small rodents, and are welcome to them!

    Thanks for this everyone! I used it for the first time last week for a 'feel good' meeting the person that oversees my building put together. It is odd the organizer was allowed to use Zoom, as we...

    Re: Review: Griot's Garage G8 Headlight Sander

    Great advice Mike!

  10. Re: How To Safely Clean Vintage Fiberglass Engine Lid Insulation Pads

    Just wiped it with a damp cotton towel.
  11. Re: How To Safely Clean Vintage Fiberglass Engine Lid Insulation Pads

    I have had some luck with using a foaming carpet cleaner on these, but I have only used that on modern cars. It brings some of the dirt to the surface, so you don't have to scrub the liner.
  12. Re: How to machine damp sand - remove orange peel & paint mottling - 3M Trizact - Griot's G9

    Great timing on this article, as I have a '67 Mustang GT 350 on the books! The car looks good, but the owner wants it shinier.
  13. Re: Review: Machine applying RaggTopp Vinyl Cleaner and Protectant - 1967 Camaro Convertible

    Great write up Mike, and I have met Rick at Detail Fest, and he is a great guy.

    But you need to get on your proofreader! A little confusing on the 'What is it' section.

    Re: 2020 GT350R...Hammered!

    I want to commend the dealers detailing department on their commitment to touching every part of that beautiful car with their sub-par tools.

    Re: Waterless wash on a very dirty car

    Good plan.
    Once you get that top cleaned and dry do yourself a favor and cover it with some plastic sheeting. It will keep it from getting dusty while you work on the car.

    Re: Waterless wash on a very dirty car

    I am a 'Mike', but not 'Mike P.', but would suggest a rinseless wash over waterless wash. And invest in pump-up sprayers (the 1/2 gallon ones from the garden center work ok, but there are better...

    Mornings the radio, and at lunch smooth jazz on an HD station. The ride home is usually podcasts - Spikes Car Radio, How I Built This, and Fresh Air.

  24. Re: Wetsanding removes paint - Compounding removes paint - Polishing removes a little paint

    That is not a good feeling when you are polishing a basecoat/clearcoat car and see the paint color on the pad. It has happened to me only once, on my own car.

    I was trying to do it quickly in...
