    Re: Over The Counter Products

    I remember 40 years ago being a snob was ordering Meguiars products through mail order from Popular Mechanics.

    Over The Counter Products

    Sometimes we can get caught up with using high end products and we can become product snobs. Today I tried something that was sitting on the shelf in my garage that I forgot all about and it turned...
  3. Re: What did I do wrong Meguiar’s hybrid ceramic liquid wax?

    What was the actual drying aid that you were using? If you are more comfortable with using a drying aid, then Carpro ECH2O or Eraser would be better choices. Another endorsement for the Griots PFM...

    I rarely click. For the most part I enjoy their garage setups and tools.
  7. Re: What are some common myths and misconceptions about car detailing?

    That’s how I started this passion when I was a kid in the 70s. Old bath towels were perfect for removing Dupont polish or Rain Dance wax. I never used dish soap. Dupont No. 7 was my go to soap along...
  8. Re: What are some common myths and misconceptions about car detailing?

    Use two paper towels for cleaning glass; one wet and one dry. It will not leave any streaks.
    The truth is it will leave streaks as well as scratches.

    Re: Call to Ban YouTubers

    I actually don’t mind the Youtubers like Pan. Every once in a while they come up with an impartial endorsement for a particular product or a technique that we may find useful. I also enjoy looking at...

    Re: Does Anyone Still Use Detail Sprays?

    I mix my own details sprays either with Wolfgang Uber or Ech2O. The pre-made dedicated detail sprays like Meguiars Quick Detailer are used for door jambs or under the hood.

    Re: Maintenance wash how-to?

    If you are looking to preserve a wax or a coating, then a pH neutral soap is what you should be using. Meguiars Hyper Wash is a great product that doesn't have any conditioners or additives and it...

    Re: Calling mike phillps

    The profession or hobby of auto detailing is very rewarding, but helping a young student is even more rewarding. You are a good man Mike Phillips.
  15. Re: Question for mobile detailing guys with small vans?

    If you ran the Ryobi for 15 minutes straight that would only consume 18 gallons of water. The 65 gallon tank would get you through 3 cars and the weight of the water in the tank would be 541 lb.
  16. Re: Question for mobile detailing guys with small vans?

    I would say that it depends on the flow rate of your power washer. A gas powered unit will have a flow rate of around 2.8 GPM. An electrically powered unit will have a flow rate of around 1.5 GPM....

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    The wife wants a Sun Setter awning on the deck but I have been fighting it for years. There is no power outlet on the deck. I finally installed an outdoor outlet and it even works and there were no...
  18. Re: What is your current favorite waterless wash?

    Wolfgang Uber has always been a favorite of mine for waterless and rinseless. Lately I have been using Ech2O and I like that as well. The Uber wipes off of the surface more cleanly but the Ech2O...

    Re: Tree sap!!! How to remove it?!?!

    Thanks Jm. I was always concerned about using denatured alcohol as it seemed to be too harsh. That is good to know. I do like using Tarminator since it has some lubricity to it as well as some...
  21. Re: Daily sap on car...the war is on, could use some advice!

    I am glad that it washed right off. Parking under a tree can be a curse with sap, leaves and bird deposits but it can also be a blessing. It's great to work in the shade.

    All of the previous mentioned solutions are great options. You can also try a plastic razor blade.

    Re: Tree sap!!! How to remove it?!?!

    My sap problem disappeared when my brother-in-law moved out. Actually I have used Tarminator, IPA and even WD-40. Tarminator works really well and it is formulated to be safe for clear coats.
  25. Re: Any durabilty reports on TW Ceramic Spray

    I have been using both the Hybrid ceramic and the Seal n Shine. Quite frankly the Seal n Shine has survived longer than the ceramic. I will get great hydophobic properties and slickness out of the...
