  2. Re: Meguiar's No.7 Glaze for Single Stage - Bondo?

    No problems...

    Just massage everything down with the #7 - even bare metal.

    Slather it on, massage it really well. Let it soak over night, massage it off.

  3. Re: 2006 Toyota Sequoia - Comet Wash - Extreme Makeover - BLACKFIRE One Step

    Agree.





    For some cars, where the paint inside the emblems is dirty, oxidized and neglected, I use the Horse Hair Brush on the Nano to machine scrub this area.


    Sometimes with soap...

    Re: Blackfire AIO plan

    That'll work. My guess is the white pads with the Supa BEAST will be more then enough. If this is a daily driver, that's all I would do. I wouldn't use the orange cutting pads and aim for 100%...
  5. Poll: Re: wash and seal/coat soap for foam cannon

    Totally agree. All the coating/ceramic infused soaps I've used didn't foam worth a bean.

    That's why I was surprised when I used this new product in a foam gun - it worked fairly good. AND - I...

    This new graphene was we launched actually foamed pretty well.

    Re: Review: DP GR4 Graphene Coating

    I hate to assume. That said, did you mean to type,

    Can you develop high spots with GRAPHENE coating similar to what can happen with a ceramic coating.

  8. Re: 2006 Toyota Sequoia - Comet Wash - Extreme Makeover - BLACKFIRE One Step

    From start to finish I believe I was at just under 8 hours. Washing the wheels, tires, machine polishing the glass and then Cometizing the body panels plus a solid re-wash to ensure all the Comet...
  9. Re: 2006 Toyota Sequoia - Comet Wash - Extreme Makeover - BLACKFIRE One Step

    Comet has been a staple in my car and boat detailing arsenal for probably 25 years.

    The Supa BEAST is my "current" preferred choice for gear-driven orbital polisher as I find it to be the most...
  10. Re: 2006 Toyota Sequoia - Comet Wash - Extreme Makeover - BLACKFIRE One Step

    Thank you.

    To get the results you see from a foam "polishing" pad and a one-step cleaner/wax in ONE pass around the SUV - the technique was to PUSH EXTREMELY HARD for every section pass. This...
  11. Re: Thanks to Mike and all! Gel Coat Beauty!

    Can you send me a picture that shows the entire trailer for perspective?

    How about the "toy" that rides in it?

    Thank you.

    The owner Joe, whom I've sent the link to this write-up, says his girlfriend didn't think the paint could be saved. Thought a better option would be to repaint the SUV. Joe came by...

    Yes. My tip for this type of work is to let the touch-up paint fully dry and harden before starting.

    Compressed air is still the best way to clean a microfiber or wool pad when cleaning these types of pads on the fly.
