    Re: Critique my logo, please.

    One issue with using gradients is that they don't embroider well - something to keep in mind if you're planning on getting hats and shirts with your logo on it. If you look at the Autogeek logo at...

    Re: Pick one please: OC or Blackfire

    OptiCoat is permanent. Only way to remove it is to literally polish it off the paint. Blackfire Wet Diamond's protection will slowly fade over time, usually 4 months. Both are among the best LSPs on...
  3. Re: Head-to-Head cage match - Klasse SG vs. Collinite 845

    If you like 845, you'll love Blackfire Wet Diamond. Apply a coat of Collinite 845, dry, buff, then apply BFWD. For those that don't want to use a coating like OptiCoat, 845/BFWD is the best...

    Re: Dirty tires not coming clean with OPC

    I'll give 505 a shot. The local Home Depot is within walking distance and at $5 a bottle I don't have much to lose - except dirty tires. ;)

    Re: Duragloss Aquawax is the real deal!

    There are few products in the detailing world that are as universally loved as Aquawax. It truly is a must-have in any detailer's collection. Yes it's "just" a spray wax, but it's so easy to use,...

    Re: Ode to Aquawax!

    Love Aquawax so much I bought a gallon of the stuff. I have OptiCoat on my car already but Aquawax works so well as a drying aid, shine booster and aromatherapy that I have to use it every time I...

    Re: Dirty tires not coming clean with OPC

    I purchased them I think July-August 2013 and were swapped for winters in November. Suds were brown at first, then turned white. I do have a carpet scrub brush for my PC7424XP. Maybe scrubbing them...

    Dirty tires not coming clean with OPC

    Hi all,

    I recently had my all-season tires installed on my car after being in winter storage at the local tire shop. I sprayed down the tires with water, hit them with Optimum Power Clean full...

    Re: nanoskin

    Love the AutoScrub pad. I have a PC7424XP but I use it by hand since I find it's easier to control, I can hear and feel the contaminants being removed and I can fold the pad to fit into tighter...

    Re: The most toxic product you have used/use

    Used to use Meguiars All Wheel Cleaner until I switched to Optimum Power Clean.

    Sandpaper? Nah, don't need to go there yet. Meguiars PlastX is great for restoring cloudy headlights. Inexpensive and found at any auto store. If you have a dual-action polisher (Porter Cable,...

    Re: Favorite Clay Lube

    ONR. To me there's no point in investing in a bottle of clay lube for a task I'll do maybe twice a year.
  13. Re: Riccardo Detailing Clay Now Available at Autogeek!

    I'm in Canada so I've had the luxury of using Riccardo many times over the past couple of years. Autogeeks, you're going to LOVE this stuff!

    Re: Riccardo Detailing Clay on Autogeek.net

    Rsurfer - I've used Riccardo many times in the past. I haven't used Pinnacle's clay so I can't compare the two brands. Riccardo comes in two colours - yellow (mild) and blue (more aggressive). I...

    Re: Are High End Products Worth The Money?

    Since you detail for a living, I'd leave it up to the customer. If they want you to use those high end boutique products on their car let them know up front that they'll pay more.
  16. Re: What products "WOW" you every time you use them?

    BFWD. I could apply that stuff in direct sunlight to a black car and it would still be effortless to apply and remove. Shine and durability are outstanding too.

    Re: That one product...

    Blackfire Wet Diamond - the best LSP on the market, not including coatings. Have never once been disappointed by its shine, durability, ease of application and removal.

    Re: Don't wash car !!!!!!!!!!!

    Better for the service guy to think you're nuts than to go nuts fixing damage that should never have been inflicted.

    An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. ;)

    Re: best winter sealant

    OptiCoat if you're ready to tackle a coating, Collinite 845 if you're not.
  21. Re: Spray Wax that is long lasting and gives decent protection?

    AquaWax. Got tired of spending $10 for 18oz so I "splurged" and bought a gallon for $30. Looks good, smells great, stupidly easy to apply.

    Re: What paint coating do you prefer and why?

    Coatings are a relatively new class of paint protection that are different from traditional sealants and waxes. To my knowledge, coatings started appearing around 2010-2011. Coatings are designed to...

    Re: Collinite 845 at Advance Auto Parts

    This time of year in northern climates Collinite is the wax to use. I have OptiCoat 2.0 on my Versa and I'm still planning on throwing a coat of 845 on it just in case.
  24. Re: Thinking about winter in September- need input

    @ Desertnate - I'd wait. Snow brushes, ice pellets, salt, sand, gravel, kitty litter, all can do damage to your car's finish. Protect what you have, then polish in the spring.
  25. Re: Thinking about winter in September- need input

    I'd take a Good, Better, Best approach to winter paint protection.

    Good - Strip LSP, clay if needed, reapply Blackfire Wet Diamond.

    Better - Strip LSP, clay if needed, reapply Blackfire Wet...
