  1. Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    One of my friends had a Facebook friend (or similar) that's a Ceramic Pro installer try to sell him on a umpteen layer X year blah-blah-blah coating job. The way he explained it I'm pretty sure the...

    Re: DIY: $75 electric pad washer

    I like the idea of using the colander - I've always been leery of the thought of running my pads against the sharp edges of the grit guard they use in the pad washers you buy - seems like a recipe to...

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

    Yikes! Nice turnaround on that one.

    If memory serves, you use Meguiars leather cleaner for interior cleaning, right? Do you ever worry when you have a car with that kind of build up you'll end up...

    Re: Amazing people and company

    Add another tip of the hat to Mike Phillips and the Autogeek Peeps.

    I had chimed in for the "Win a Prize" thread as well, and even though the post I found was older than the one he was thinking,...

  9. Re: Can car wash shampoo be diluted to a rinseless wash?

    Interesting thought exercise, but I'm with the other folks - I'd just pick up a dedicated rinseless as there are so many good options to choose from.

    On top of leftover soap dulling the...
  10. Re: Well, first day using random orbital polisher, and I failed

    They didn't try to post any.

    Trying to help a feller out, I went to the dark site and looked at the sales posting of the polisher. Looks like a GG3 clone, except 8mm throw. 380w motor (I think I...
  11. Re: Well, first day using random orbital polisher, and I failed

    TJ:

    Looking at the pictures of that machine, it looks like the “3000 RPM” setting is only speed 1 - on any random orbital machine you’ll need more than that to get pad rotation. Especially on a 3”...
  12. Re: Well, first day using random orbital polisher, and I failed

    I'd say failure's a pretty harsh term for your first go-around. You're not diffusing a bomb, you're playing on a test panel! :D

    Great points above. First thought I had was that a 3" dual action...

  14. Re: Are there any foam cannon type wash systems that do a decent job without touching the vehicle?

    I'll agree with others that a truly touchless approach may not be possible. But, if you're able to do it weekly/often enough for low grime build up, I think something like the Griot's foaming surface...

    The headlights look like some aftermarket pieces.

    Re: Bummer dude. Torqx DA.

    Before reading too far into your post, Mike Phillip's leading question of "Did you see great pad rotation?" was the first thing I thought of with that machine.

    I'd be willing to bet you're losing...

    Re: Solutions for odors that wonít leave

    Don’t forget if you do clean the belts to keep them fully extended until they’re completely dry, otherwise you’re setting up for them getting funky.

  25. Re: GG Brilliant Finish Rinseless Dilution Ratios?

    Part of me wonders if they donít recommend it at stiffer dilution ratios for other uses so they donít steal sales from other (more expensive :) ) products. If itís lubricious enough to be used for...
