    Re: RUPES Mille Review by 2black1s

    I haven't had another opportunity to use the Mille yet.

    In late April I had a hernia surgery that put me out of commission for a bit. Then I went on a cross-country motorcycle trip in June....

    Re: RUPES Mille Review by 2black1s

    I wasn't referring to vibration... I was referring primarily to the "sticky" nature of the product I was using.

  4. Re: Advice Please, 30yr old Nissan engine bay

    I would use a strong detergent for the initial cleaning... Something like Tide laundry detergent mixed quite liberally, or a good APC mixed at an aggressive ratio, along with terry cloth towels and...

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

    What a cool experience to see.

    Reminds me of when the Space Shuttle was being retired and it flew into LAX. I took a motorcycle ride down there, about 45 minutes from my place, to see it... It...

    Re: Products Streaking on Car Hood

    I agree. Horizontal panels, especially the hood because it's usually the largest, the one that gets the most attention, and is at the perfect height/attitude for inspection, always show any flaw(s)...

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

    You and I do a very different kind of detailing.

    45 minutes to me is closer to a single panel than a whole vehicle.

    Heck, I probably spend 45 minutes throughout the process just inspecting...

    Re: Help with brown spots on my white paint!

    I once had a white car that had some brown stain spots that I could not remove. They also faded away over time. Too the best of my recollection it was a matter of weeks or maybe a few months.

    Re: Question on truck step rails...

    After your initial cleaning, you know, the 2 hours ago clean, cover them with a terry cloth towel, especially the areas that will be stepped upon in the next 2 hours. Maybe a little tape to hold them...

    Re: Travel Trailer Refresh

    A cleaner wax is a reasonable choice. I'd use a non-abrasive version, e.g., OTC Meguiars in the maroon bottle, or a similar product first, to see if it provides a good enough result. If not then step...

    Re: Lint Free Towel for Quick Detail Spray?

    I have a black truck, and between the black paint and the glass, nearly every microfiber towel I have used will leave lint (tiny fibers) behind.

    While not perfect, the best I have found to...

    I could have sworn my location was on there... Simi Valley, CA (about 30-40 mikes NW of Los Angeles).

    Let me see if I can go fix it.

    Re: Tesla Model 3 Scratched by Dog

    I can't see the scratches in the pics so that's one thing going in your favor. They must not be very deep.

    Also, since your looking at isolated scratches, hand compounding/polishing is a...

  24. Re: Super-sharp reflections - does smooth "corrected" clear coat, or overlaying coating(s) make the difference? (My refl. are hazy.)

    Like Mike said, the answer is yes. The clearest, sharpest reflections will come from the smoothest painted surface.

    Think of a sanded and well polished custom paint job next to a well polished...
  25. Re: Tricks for getting glue/decal residue off glass?

    Razor blades do not scratch glass if done carefully. I've done it many, many times for hard, dried contaminants.
