    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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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.
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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...
  11. 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.

    Re: 2014 Corvette PlatstiDip Project

    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...

    Re: Noob seeks advice

    Just a couple more things to think about.

    You didn't say you have a DA machine. If you don't, I would consider getting one of these:

    SONAX P-Ball

    Carrand Gripper? Microfiber Applicators 2...
  17. Re: Question for mobile detailing guys with small vans?

    I don't know about your average generator. But, the Honda 2000 has a 12v outlet (not sure of the amps though).
  18. Re: Favorite beer, if not a beer drinker, favorite beverage in general.

    Should have bought Bud Light Lime instead. Not great, but better.
  19. Re: Wax for door jambs and underside of deck lids & hoods

    I just use up something that I bought and wasn't that good or is laying around because another product came along that I like better.

    Re: How to avoid germs - Gas Station

    My statement is flawed :rolleyes:. Because the reported covid numbers in a state (actually this goes for more than Utah) are rising after a Governor declared masks must be worn?

    I agree with Scott. Get a MIG welder. Later, you can get a TIG welder If you want more versatility.

    Re: Really Stubborn Bug Guts

    That's a lot of blue tape.

    You might want to check out a product vinyl wrapers use to apply lettering. I think it's called transfer tape (or application tape). 3M makes it. TransferRite makes it....
