    Re: Decal replacement prep

    Like Klasse Act has stated, use a solvent to remove any adhesive residue first, then polish, then remove any polishing oils with another solvent wipe.

    And a suggestion for installing the decal......

    Re: coating after paint

    I would wait. Anything below 70 degrees severely slows cure times. And if the current high temperatures are only in the 60s that's even worse.

    At those temperatures I'd wait a minimum of 90 days,...

    Re: What's your MF towel washing routine?

    If that were the case, why didn't my test towel (Kirkland BTW) melt when I subjected it to a 415F degree iron for one minute? Dryers get nowhere near that temperature even on the highest setting.
  5. Re: Deep cleaning a silver plastic intake manifold

    My guess is that after the cleaning that you have already performed anything left is staining that you won't be able to remove. You can try rubbing problem areas with a rag & solvent such as mineral...

    Re: What's your MF towel washing routine?

    I'm calling BS on the 140F melting point referenced in these links.

    I did a little test to see for myself how heat affects the towels fibers and I found absolutely no discernible degradation. The...

    Re: What's your MF towel washing routine?

    I understand that this perspective is the general consensus... But why?

    Most home hot water is probably in the 120F-140F temperature range. I don't see that as any concern at all for the washing...

    Re: What's your MF towel washing routine?

    I'm not recommending to dry microfibers on high heat settings (I use medium on my dryer that has 4 settings - no heat, low heat, med heat, & high heat) but for the sake of discussion I looked up the...

    Re: What's your MF towel washing routine?

    I use Tide in hot water, followed by a minimum of 3 or 4 rinse cycles (until there is no evidence of residual sudsing in the rinse water), and then dry them on a medium heat setting.

    To the OP......

    I'm not a coating guy and know very little about them... but from a general engineering perspective if a product specifies 12 hours cure time between coats I would interpret that as meaning 12 hours...

    Great trip and great story sharing it!

    I've been there four times on my bike. Your trip definitely included more activities than mine... Mine have been almost exclusively for the riding.

    And...

  13. Re: Working on panels that need to be repainted

    I don't think there is a "one size fits all" answer.

    Too many variables...
    - Customer expectations
    - Your reputation
    - Your experience in similar cases; and your confidence in what can and...
  14. Re: Left wet car in garage after rain, out of town for 17 days

    I'm confused too. How do sprinklers distribute lawn chemicals? Sprinkler systems distributing lawn chemicals is a new one for me.

    To the OP... enjoy your 2 weeks away and forget about the water...

    I could see priming the pad on a window, or a scrap panel like I mentioned in the original post. Other than that, no way am I running the polisher in a stationary position for 20-30 seconds as...

    I watched the video and wrote a thorough, 5 or 6 paragraph response earlier today. When I tried to post it I got logged out and lost it.

    Re: making a silver car shine

    Are you referring to the 110/210 combo? Or the P21S?

    I have no experience with the P21S, but 110 & 210 are certainly solid performers.

    Re: making a silver car shine

    Your climbing a very steep hill... Appreciate silver for what it is. If you want it to look like black (or another dark color), trade it in. :laughing:

    Your 110/210 are solid choices for polishing...

    Re: Scangrip lights worth it?

    I agree. I feel that "swirl finder" lights from any manufacturer are simply marketing hype. That said, they are convenient because of their small size and portability.

    Re: Take a look at this paint.

    I'm sure you know I wasn't implying this as a fix... Only as a way to make some modest improvement in appearance.
