    Re: What should water beading look like?

    Maybe I'm just a little odd, I find it really entertaining what happens to water beads like that as I drive away. On a car with a really hydrophobic surface, those tiny beads all start to merge...

    Re: Toyota CAMRY TRD

    Does it use a electronic e-diff rather than a mechanical one? I haven't read up on them more than a couple quick reviews. Not as good as a mechanical one, but at least a step in the right...

    Re: Toyota CAMRY TRD

    Not a bad looking car and I like the color. One parks near me at work frequently and it appears to be well kept so the read really pops.

    Toyota is really trying to be a little more interesting...
  4. Re: Review: SONAX Insect Remover - How to avoid getting a new paint job

    I found the yellow bug sponge like the one pictured does a great job, but is murder on soft Toyota paint. The green bug scrubber pad from Sonax is much softer and works just as well.

    I always try...

    Re: Wow! Still on the road!

    My Dad's Chevette I drove in high school and college had the same issues with power, but since I grew up in Colorado the altitude made it even worse! I doubt the thing had more than 60-ish hp on tap...

    The artist will always see the imperfections in their work, but those looking at the art will not. Car looks great!

    Re: What should "water beading" look like?

    I thought the same thing when I saw it. A good sealant, but not a coating.



    So very true. The coatings create water beads which are literally beads which just perch on the surface. I found...

    Re: Burning Tape

    On the topic of "burning" the tape, its a really simple solution I have never thought about. It seems most painter's tape these days is really sticky and some "low adhesive" tape I recently tried...
  9. Re: My experience w BF Ceramic Pro Black Edition

    Andre: Just a thought.

    If the recommendation is to use the MF applicator pads, you might want to change how the kits are sold for the BF coatings. Both the Black Edition Pro Coating (BLACKFIRE...

    Re: Best Ceramic for Wheels

    I don't think the barrels of the wheels are bare aluminum, aren't they typically painted with something?

    On the vehicles I've owned and the aftermarket wheels I've also used, the backside of the...
  11. Re: My experience w BF Ceramic Pro Black Edition

    It's interesting that in cool humid conditions it flashes so much quicker than what is provided in the product instructions. From my experience with CQuartz UK, both v2 and v3 flashing slowed in...

    Re: 303 Graphine review!

    My experience is a good hard rain will rinse a coated car to where it looks clean again, but won't get it as clean as you do with a hand wash of some form, no matter how good the coating. Nothing...

    Re: Wow! Still on the road!

    The way those things rusted, I'm not sure many had much left to recycle!

    After driving a Chevette in High School, I'm pretty certain the Metro was a better car. The only advantage for the...
  14. Re: How to remove wax from plastic/vinyl bumpers?

    I've used peanut butter and it worked great. I once had a car with textured black trim with some wax stains on it from places where I was a little sloppy. After trying APC and some other products,...

    Re: Lightning Deals - Confused

    I'm in a similar place as well. Due to shipping costs, I'll often do a larger buy and wait for a big sale which either has free shipping, exceed the threshold to get the free shipping, or at least...

    Re: Wolfgang Uber SIO2 spray...

    I think the streaking is a characteristic of the SiO2 infused sprays. I've had streaking with Cure and Elixr. I've not tried the Wolfgang spray.

    The only way I could avoid the streaking is to...
  17. Re: Will Poorboys Professional Polish Clean panels well?

    The sealant will bond just fine if you don't use IronX. It would even work well if you don't clay. Heck, it would probably still work just fine if you simply washed the vehicle really well and...

    Re: Best Ceramic for Wheels

    The C8 Corvette wheels probably are aluminum or other alloy, but I think they are all painted for this generation, maybe a black, gray or silver color? I thought chrome/polished wheels ended with...
  19. Re: Will Poorboys Professional Polish Clean panels well?

    When using a sealant, I've always taken the path of least resistance when going into winter. I look for protection over anything else. The car will be covered in grime and salt for most of the...
  20. Re: Will Poorboys Professional Polish Clean panels well?

    What do you mean by chemical decontaminate? If you mean using a product like IronX, then yes, go ahead and do that step. Pro-polish won't act like an iron remover. If not, I don't know what...
  21. Re: suggestions for headlight cleaning (not yellow/foggy)

    Polishing them will accelerate the yellowing/fogging because it will remove the factory UV coating which actually prevents that from happening. If they are not yellow/foggy now, I would not polish...

    Re: Best Ceramic for Wheels

    I've not coated any aluminum wheels, but have used both CQuartz UK and the regular CQuartz coatings on my painted wheels.

    In both cases, I coated the entire wheel and then drove them daily for...
  23. Re: Will Poorboys Professional Polish Clean panels well?

    It should do the trick for those purposes. With a white pad, you'll actually get some correction as well.

    I used Pro Polish on my daughter's gray metallic Mazda3 many years ago and it actually...

    In my experience, CanCoat with occasional toppings of Cure has lasted 12 months. I really don't think you'll need to redo anything every 4~6 months. Just keep washing it and periodically topping it...

    Re: lastest products for wax or sealant

    What are you looking for in the new wax/sealant.

    Collinite 845 is a great sealant. It looks good and is really durable.

    Which Wolfgang product are you asking about, the Uber Ceramic Spray? ...
