    Re: Worth the upgrade to Griots G9?

    Also make sure to mark the back of your pad/backing plate with a sharpie to see that it's spinning. A free spinning DA will stall if not flat on the surface and then the pad isn't doing anything.

  3. Re: VIP Guests - Industry Experts - for the February 3-Day Detailing Class

    You can work your magic and that thing will still be so ugly. Shiny, but ugly. It was the ugliest car ever, IMO, until Tesla announced the Cybertruck.
  4. Re: Is there a need to further prime the pad with polish after using a pad conditioning spray?

    I do the same as Paul mentioned above. Don’t want too much product. Now when using microfiber pads it’s a different story and I do prime.

    Pad conditioners I don’t like. Makes that first pass...

    Re: Old Cringe worthy Detailing Techniques

    California Car Duster and those Water blades used to dry. I’m guilty of using those things in the past.

    I still use a mini California duster inside the car, I keep it in the glove box. Just for...

    Re: Please chime in on CarPro Gliss v2...

    The smell of gliss v2 didn’t stand out at all to me. At no point using that I felt like I should put a mask on. I never used v1.

    SiO2 is actually not the marketing hype now. It’s Graphene. ...
  7. Re: Mike Phillips PBL Paint and Surface Coating Application Technique

    Thanks. The reason I asked is when I'm doing a coating I want to avoid any and all lint if I can. Day to day it's not as bad but I still try to use towels that don't give me any lint.

    I...
  8. Re: Mike Phillips PBL Paint and Surface Coating Application Technique

    Mike, when you cut towels like that, don't you have issues with lint? All these edgeless towels lint quite a bit when new due to no stitching on the edges, and that gets better with time. I'm...

  10. Re: Storing diluted Wolfgang rinseless solution

    I think as long as you’re using distilled water then it’s fine to store any of them. With tap water I wouldn’t.

    Re: How to revive microfiber drying towels?

    I’m gonna need a lot more favorable reviews before I buy another P&S product. Brake buster is just ok. Bead maker is crap. So I’m skeptical of their entire line now.

    Re: 2021 Tesla Model Y

    Model X is uglier. On this one the wheels look pretty ugly with that huge center cap.

    It’s very glossy now, great job.

    Re: Hydrophobicity of CSL vs Cquartz Lite?

    CSL by itself isn’t very hydrophobic, you’ll want to top it with EXO V4 to get that nice hydrophobic behavior.

    Re: PPF

    Yes, it will add orange peel. Some brands more than others. Some add very little but always adds some.

    Re: Cleaning headlights that donít need repair

    Are you coating them car? If yes, then use Essence and coat with the same product you’re using on the paint. My lights all got cleaned up with Essence and have 2 coats of UK and a coat of Gliss. ...

    Essence works great to clean up the lights. Go for it.
  17. Re: Removing streak marks from Reload after fresh Cquartz

    You could have high spots on the hood and think they’re streaks? Reload is pretty known for streaking on dark color cars but shouldn’t be hard to remove, maybe they’re high spots on the coating.

    Re: Cleaning headlights that donít need repair

    I normally use whatever finishing polish I’m using on the paint to clean up the headlights. Don’t want to be aggressive and remove the factory UV coating. If that’s gone already then a full restore...

    Re: Newbie confused here?!?!?!

    No, I have not. I read some feedback about it and no one seemed to think they were that great. When more cut than orange is needed, step up to microfiber or wool.

    Re: Newbie confused here?!?!?!

    Thin Pros are way nicer than CCS pads. And red is rarely needed, I bought one, still in the package. Even black I almost never needed. Orange and white are used a lot.

    Re: 2019 GT3 Touring

    Looks great! But a GT3 without the wing just isn’t complete IMO. At least it’s a manual gearbox so it must be a blast to drive.

    Re: Ceramic Coatings?

    Essence+ was pretty mediocre in my experience. Didn’t do any fixing and reduced the hydrophobic behavior by a lot. I even tried more than once in different cars and still think it’s worthless.
