  1. Re: Been out the game for a while...but love me my Menz PowerLock. What helper spray wax goes well with it?

    Hot water wash (works for all my towels although some will say you shouldn’t) with your detergent. And next time using as an applicator, can you make a little bucket or dish and put hot water in it...
  2. Re: Review: Dr. Beasley's NSP Z1 - One Step Primer & Nanocoating with Ti02 & Si02 + Composite Engineered Abrasives

    Similar question: Hybrid Solutions Polish and Wax and Mckees 360 One Step are AIOs that leave behind ceramic sealants. Is this product in that same vein, or is it claiming more of a true coating...
  3. Re: Review: Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Ceramic Coating Pro

    Having installed my first, I plan on tossing the wipe off towels, even those that weren’t used much and have no hardness. Or best case maybe I’ll keep the lightly used ones as tire or wheel-well...
  4. Re: Review: Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Ceramic Coating Pro

    Nice way of explaining the light’s ability to show the truth, lol.

    And nice touch including the little Mike Phillips avatar on the top left of that photo. Just coincidence that you happened to be...

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

    Thanks, and yes! I first noticed I wasn’t happy with these panels on an overcast day. Lightly polished them, recoated and did the best I could to ensure smooth application with shade on a sunny day....

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

    I did some rework on a partially sloppy coating attempt. 3 panels including the hood recoated with CQ UK due to smeary-looking finish (high spots) on black paint.

    What a difference proper...
  8. Re: Review: Pinnacle Black Label Compound, Polish and Diamond Surface Prep Spray

    I believe you can use the PBL polish as an equivalent alternative to Pinnacle Finishing Polish. It is PBL’s ‘finishing polish’, but probably has a bit more cut for when it’s needed. I have no doubt...
  9. Re: Review: Pinnacle Black Label Compound, Polish and Diamond Surface Prep Spray

    The Surface Cleansing Polish has no abrasives, so don’t expect even light scratches to be impacted or jeweling with a finishing pad (assuming I’m thinking correctly that jeweling would remove some...

    Re: Expiration date?

    Yeah, in line with PaulMys, those sound like they’re fine if they don’t smell funky or look separated.

    Re: Coating Flash Times —- Confused

    I just checked my newly coated black Q5 in the sun and there are a few areas that appear lightly streaked. Most likely high spots that won’t come out. I regret thinking I could do this in my garage...

    Re: Coating Flash Times —- Confused

    I have a bad feeling I left too much “oily” coating residue during wipe off due to trying before the flash was fully dry. I was hoping the residue would self level but I can still see it with swirl...

    Re: Review: Wolfgang PROFI Ceramic Coating

    I think the bottles are metal but could be wrong. I definitely think the crappy plastic bottles impacted Mckees V2 shelf life.

    Re: Coating Flash Times —- Confused

    If this is the case and I don’t have to worry about the coating bonding and only concerned with ease of wipe off, them I’m a happy man.

    Re: Coating Flash Times —- Confused

    I worked up to 1.5 full panels ahead to let the stuff sit long enough. Knowing by that time that it wouldn’t be a problem to wipe off after 5-10 minutes.

    Re: Coating Flash Times —- Confused

    I now fear that certain sections/panels of mine were wiped off too soon (UK 2.0) because there was some oily residue after which did not easily go away after 1 or 2 wipes. Being my first coating I...

    Re: P21s/Maguiar’s Ultimate Wax

    P21s has a shiny, bright finish from what I remember (for a wax). But probably deeper, warmer still than Megs ULW I would think (full disclosure I haven’t used ULW much but have used M21 a lot and I...

    Re: New Wolfgang Ceramics vs DPGS hood test!

    You’re welcome. I’m glad if it helped.


    I personally liked the WG SiO2 look, it caught my eye as being darker and richer. Both darken the paint as SiO2 products generally do, it was easy to see...

    Thanks for mentioning the feeling, it just hit me. I can agree with the sad feeling in the area, unsure if it’s just me or if it’s local NYers too. The times I’ve visited that vicinity everything...
