    Re: Bug remover & topcoat reapply

    Most bug removers are APCs/degreasers perhaps with an enzyme that breaks down bug guts.

    Start with a little soap and water and see how far you get. Grab the bug remover when you need to get...
  2. Re: Why do you use the brands you do, & not others??

    It's not possible for one brand to have a winner in every category.

    New polisher and polishing technique help

    I have owned and used the 3401, CBEAST, and cordless finisher.

    The finisher slows down after 5-10 minutes which is annoying. I do not recommend anyone buy the cordless finisher.

    "It's fun to work with the maker, not the faker." - Mike Phillips

    I wonder what the backstory is on that.

    Looks like maybe a reference to other social media promoters.

    Looks like they will be doing basically the same thing over there that they have done at Autogeek.

    I would say try the Hybrid Ceramic Detailer first. If you like the results then step up to M799.

    Try some 3D APCs/Degreasers. They don't make you cough or bleed from your respiratory system.

    Re: simple green

    It comes from people's experience using the product.

    From what I've read it's not as safe as you'd think. And not as material compatible as you'd expect.

    With any of these if the tires are still wet there is a chance the liquid will fly off the tire. If you need to drive before they dry...

    What do you really expect?

    Always ask for what you want the result to be. Don't assume someone is going to read your mind and figure out what you want.

    With a coated windshield you can never rely on the rain sensor. It wants to wipe every drop of rain off the glass. When your windshield is coated you don't need or want that.

    Except it has horrible water behavior and doesn't last long in the real world. And it doesn't self clean in the rain either. Oh and it loses gloss until after the first wash.
