    Re: Names for a mobile detailing business

    I would stay away from clever and what sounds like your trying to place your business with a name. Focus on a name and graphics that make a potential customer feel comfortable with you.

    You're part of the classic holy trinity of employees (teachers, law enforcement, firemen - as in, "The cost of living is so high here. How will the teachers, firemen, and police afford to live."...

    Re: stupid girls and maybe car dings?

    A fence is what they told me they hit. They had actually hit an auto I had parked further down the side street.

    Re: stupid girls and maybe car dings?

    This seems like a good time to point out a good habit: Snap a picture of their license plate - ALWAYS.

    I learned the value of this recently. Someone came to my door saying they had hit my...

    Re: Tried something new (pandemic boredom)

    I remember Cruz Car Wash posting the great results he got mixing PNS with CarPro Essence. The product almost seems to act like a catalyst/hardener with other products.

    I've used it over Blackfire...

    Re: 2014 Corvette PlatstiDip Project

    Yeah, the tip size isn't a problem. Iwata makes a gun that's popular for spraying primers (Airgunsa AZ3 HTE2). It has tip sizes up to 3.5 (1.8 is a basic primer size; 2.0-2.5 usually for high build...

    Re: 2014 Corvette PlatstiDip Project

    RP guns are supposed to be closer to an evolved conventional sprayer. I think RP stands for reduced pressure. They spray at a little higher pressure than HVLP and put out less volume. I believe they...

    Re: 2014 Corvette PlatstiDip Project

    When you say you missed a spot, do you mean with the dip product or the dip armor?

    The dip product can't be sprayed with a HVLP or RP gun, correct? So, there is no way you can spray it with an...

    Re: Does everyone really need a $100+ DA buffer?

    Funny, in the last few years I've questioned whether I need a house to live in. I've kind of been intrigued by the nomad life style. I came to the conclusion that I would miss not being able to live...

    Re: Hand sanitizer on tree sap... now what?

    Interesting. I'll have to try that.

    Is that because of chemical composition or because of alcohol concentration levels?

    Re: New small polisher

    I have a PE8 and almost never use it. It's geared too high. Headlights is what I use it for now.

    I would get a Flex or Griots mini DA.

    Re: Hand sanitizer on tree sap... now what?

    Well, with respect to what you quoted, i would say the extra ingredients in the hand sanitizer that don't contribute to removing the sap. I personally don't see any point in using more than the...

    Re: Hand sanitizer on tree sap... now what?

    You know, they only tell you to remove sap with hand sanitizer because almost all hand sanitizers are alcohol based. Maybe next time go straight to isopropyl alcohol.

    Put some on a microfiber...

    Re: 2014 Corvette PlatstiDip Project

    I was thinking the same thing. It would be a nice aide in doing the circular parts of the wheel.

    It might have to be motorized though. I think it would be very difficult to get an even spray...
  15. Re: Letís learn about vinyl wrap and protecting it.

    If you go after them, call 3m and ask if they will look at it. Bring up the issue of the discoloration. That way they have a product issue to resolve.

    If they do come out have him put something in...
  16. Re: Letís learn about vinyl wrap and protecting it.

    Yeah

    " He said it will glue back on after a couple hours"

    Okay, they know that's a lie. So, you have to decide now if it's worth going after them.
  17. Re: Letís learn about vinyl wrap and protecting it.

    I think 3m would tell you it's the installer. I would work with him until he tells you he won't back up his work.

    I don't think 3m has a system of certified installers. I think they're just who's...
  18. Re: Letís learn about vinyl wrap and protecting it.

    Ceramic is the protectant (and he probably meant a coating application, not one of the spray and wipe products).

    I was talking about where you are now. What does he suggest to use to clean up the...
  19. Re: Letís learn about vinyl wrap and protecting it.

    If he tells you it wasn't over stretched, realize there are two factors at play here. There is the maximum amount the product can be stretched before distortion or failure. There is also an amount...
  20. Re: Letís learn about vinyl wrap and protecting it.

    Ok, he says he will fix it for 7 years. Take him up on it.

    Any fading will be a product issue (4 months and quality inks) or contamination of the laminate. Lifting is an installation issue (and he...
  21. Re: Letís learn about vinyl wrap and protecting it.

    Just for clarification is it 1080 or 2080?

    Did the installer give you a warranty or is he just quoting you 3m's warranty?

    Peeling is probably due to installer error. Typically over stretched...

    Re: Would you use these towels again?

    So, I guess to summarize, everybody has their own crazy methods of cleaning MF's and they all turn out towels that are great.

    I'm thinking I'm not going to worry too much about how I clean mine.

    Yeah, so now you know it will work. If you do it a second time, maybe consider instead of painting over the body line, running masking tape over the body line about 1/4" (top down). Then as you spray...

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I have the P21s polishing soap (probably the same thing since they're sister companies). I've never used it on a car. But, it's the best product I've found to clean the face of a stainless steel...

    Re: 2014 Corvette PlatstiDip Project

    There are ways to make that look better. Go on Pinterest and look up two toned cars or rally stripe cars and you can get some ideas. You have to use the body lines to make breaks. Notice the...
