    Re: Clear coat aluminum wheels

    This would be my advice too.

    I've owned four vehicles with wheels which were totally polished/brushed metal and clear coat or with a mixed brushed/painted areas. In all four cases the clear coat...

    Glad it worked for you and every one is happy. That are a great tool in the LSP arsenal.

  3. Re: Whats everyone using for headlight protection - before yellowing...

    I don't apply a PPF, but when I coat the vehicle, I'll also include the headlights. I also avoid hitting both the taillights and headlights with anything abrasive for as long as possible. My intent...

    Beat me to my question.

    I've been using Coatings for the better part of 10 years...maybe a bit longer. I've only encountered water spotting issues twice. Once from sprinklers, which will spot...

    Re: Can you Believe this is a Hyundai

    I've only seen N cars in the baby blue color they offer. Does this paint color have pearl in it?

    My wife's previous vehicle was a medium gray pearl. In blazing direct sunlight it was gray, but...

    If you don't want to pull the caliper, take a look at G2 brake caliper paint. You apply it with a brush. I've heard great things from people who have used it on everything from street cars to track...

    This is most likely the biggest reason. If your municipality is like ours, they hover on the brink of financial collapse every year and never have enough money to keep up with infrastructure. Night...

    Another vote for the McKee's 37 Fast Interior Detailer. I actually bought my bottle when McKee's 37 was still sold here.

    Re: Ceramic Detailer vs. Quick Detailer

    So very true. Same for my application of Pure EVO. No need for a booster or anything like it.

    That said, I did buy a bottle of Gyeon Ceramic Detailer when I purchased the Pure EVO. I was...

    Re: Carpro Elixir

    I've used both Elixr and ECH2O and really didn't find any reason to buy Elixr.

    I didn't find Elixr to be all that friendly to apply due to potential streaking if you didn't get the amount of...

    My car now has alcantera/micro suede all over the interior: seats, pads on the doors, and even one over the gauge cluster.

    This is a prime example of why I typically debadge a car as much as possible. Totally understand this case with a classic/near-classic motorcycle staying original.

    Re: Carpro reset

    Agree. It's still a car wash soap, just a little stronger than most.

    If you are facing some fairly grimy wheels and especially a German car with their legendary brake dust, I be reaching for a...

    We own a Toyota Highlander and after spraying down the entire roof area, I'll wash it by hand with a wash mitt. I've found...

    So very true. Condition of the wheels, type of wheel material/finish, etc, make a big difference.

    You're halogen spotlights should work just fine. I actually think the color temperature of the halogen spotlights actually works better than LED.

    Re: 2022 Acura RDX A spec

    The vehicle looks great now! Good job.

    Were those swirls dealer installed? That's a lot of damage for such a new car unless the owners run it through an automatic car wash frequently.
