    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    It’s the blue and gold box on top. It’s an AR Blue Clean something or other. I think maybe the AR630TSS.

    Re: FLEX XCE 8-125

    My main issue is that it is too fast and not safe for paint in my opinion. Even as a tire cleaner, it is hard to regulate the trigger-pull consistently so that it doesnít go too fast and ďburnĒ a...

    Re: FLEX XCE 8-125

    I have that one too and burnt a small area on my son’s headlight when I let it go a little too fast, even on 1. I’m probably going to sell it as it isn’t going near the paint again. Even scrubbing...

    Re: FLEX XCE 8-125

    Thanks for pointing that out. I changed my wording since I havenít worked with the Ryobi and Dewalt polishers, Iíve only read reviews for them.

    Re: FLEX XCE 8-125

    Hard to say. Some say Mercedes are expensive and for others they are a good value. My first question would be as compared to what? I know Ryobi and Dewalt have cordless polishers but I’m not sure...

    Jason, are you a pro or a hobbyist? And if you are a pro, what are your goals? Mike P is focused on getting the jobs done as quickly as possible so he usually reaches for the most powerful tool to...
  8. Re: Revisiting Your 2017 Thoughts On New Car LSP's of Choice

    There are really two classes of ceramic coatings, lite or “full” prosumer coatings. Lite coatings might give 6-12 months of good protection while a full coating should provide 1-2 years and some a...

    Re: Post Your Unpacking Pictures

    I just picked up a Milwaukee M18 2267-22 impact wrench so I could remove lug nuts. I got tired of doing it manually. Next I need to order a torque wrench and some protective lug nut sockets.

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    What are you going to paint/protect the wood with? I utilize Duratex for some subwoofer enclosures, which is a water-based durable coating similar to bedliner but incredibly easy to apply.
  12. Re: How to tell if ceramic coating is failing (regular toppers)

    To a degree that makes sense but I’m not sure I buy that. I think with you it is more psychological where the coating is actually still doing just fine but you’ve reached your limit of not putting...

    Re: The Clearcoat Failure Photo Gallery Archive

    My 2000 Acura TL had bad clear coat damage in TN after about 10-11 years. I had it repainted and it looked brand new but I agree, I saw a lot of early 2000 TLs and Accords with clear coat failure...

    Re: How to get better foaming on cannon?

    Another option is something like Blackfire Foam Booster. I’ve read quite a few reviews where people used 1/2 oz of the foam booster and reduced their primary soap down to 2 oz while still providing...

    Re: Ceramic coating on my Race car (dragster)

    Yep, I use it all the time for a rinseless wash, panel spray prewash, and drying aid. The SiO2 leaves a nice bit of protection too as beading is consistent and constant even over and above Gyeon...

    I received the Ryobi water broom as a present but haven’t had a chance to use it yet. Will definitely be using it after this spring due to the winter salt. Plan to spray a couple APCs and rinse...

  18. Re: Leather care - conditioner, sealant, coating or water?

    I think there is a lot of conflicting information out there about standard coated “leather” in most cars. Some say it can’t take moisture so conditioner doesn’t do anything. They use the fact that...

    Your Michelin Pilot Sports AS/3 and my Continental DWS-06 are regularly compared and are commonly 1A and 1B at the top of the (current) Sporty All Season tire list. The best rain tire I ever had was...

    Re: Question for you guys who live in a blizzard..

    When I lived in Fairbanks AK, our tires would get a flat spot when it dropped below -30, which it routinely did and -55 hit a couple times a winter. When first driving a car, it would bump, bump,...
  22. Re: Meg's D120 Finally Running Out....What To Choose For My Next Glass Cleaner?

    I went with the 10L of Sonax Glass Cleaner and I really like it and it is cheaper than Car Pro Clarify. Never used Clarify so can't compare. Mike Phillips also uses it for a prep wash.

    Re: Windshield Residue Help!

    I don’t disagree but acetone and even hand polishing SHOULD have removed a film. So if those didn’t, I think it needs a pretty good polishing with some cerium oxide. Hand polish could work for a...

    Do you have a polisher? I don’t think you’ll be able to correct the windshield by hand as it is simply too hard. Since you’ve already tried a glass polish, my next recommendation would be that...

    I’m with you. ANY chance I can get outside I do though this has been an unusually cold winter. Or maybe we’ve had unusually warm winters previously and this is what winter should be. Spring simply...
