    You were born for this...ha ha ha. Love it when a good plan comes together.

  2. Re: Some Extreme techniques that are kinda odd but......

    My question would be how long before I begin getting a nice red tint on the buttocks of my khaki pants...I would wager the first time I was in the car for more than 20 min. Lol.

    Sticky: Re: What's color sanding?

    Here is an example of the types of amazing results you can achieve with 3M's Trizact 1500/3000 disc combo followed by a buff/polish. These are before and after photos of a a black hood that I leveled...
  4. Re: 303 Aerospace Can Double the Life/Mileage of Your Tire's Tread?

    If you want to view it that way, but the point remains the same. Just as ONR is not meant to extend oil life, 303 is not meant to extend tread life. You would need to coat tires regularly with a very...
  5. Re: 303 Aerospace Can Double the Life/Mileage of Your Tire's Tread?

    All I'm saying is that the claim he's making is the equivalent of saying that putting a few spritzes of ONR in your intake manifold every 1k miles will make you not have to change your oil for 20k...
  6. Re: 303 Aerospace Can Double the Life/Mileage of Your Tire's Tread?

    If this were the case, 303 would no longer be in business because they would have either been bought out by Big Rubber or "disappeared" by them. Ha ha.

    Poll: Re: Which Electric Pressure Washer

    I'm curious as to how you captured/calculated the pressure values? Not second guessing your findings, just interested in how you got to these values.

    Re: Small specks in paint?

    I had something similar happen to me when applying WGDGPS 3.0. At some point during my first of 2 coats I managed to get some splatter from the DA which I failed to spot during buffing. I proceeded...

    Re: Fix Wrinkled Paint

    You could try to wet sand to reduce and buff/polish after, but honestly that looks like it may be too deep to fully correct without going through the clear.

  10. Re: Cleaning Headlight Projector Lens Internal Face

    I was able to clean the projector lens back face last night, and it turned out well. I don't think I'm going to worry about disassembling the housing, as it's not too terribly dirty.

  11. Re: Cleaning Headlight Projector Lens Internal Face

    I'll probably stay away from the alcohol, in the event that the lens is acrylic and not glass. Alcohol has a tendency to cause haze on plastics.

  12. Re: Cleaning Headlight Projector Lens Internal Face

    Yeah that's what I was thinking. I know where the leak was (which is responsible for the hazing) so I'll get that sealed up, but I just want to make sure that I don't use anything that will leave...
  13. Re: Cleaning Headlight Projector Lens Internal Face

    Bulb-side. I can disassemble the light, I'd just rather try to clean it through the bulb socket. I've heard of people attaching microfiber to a dowel and gently cleaning through the socket with...
  14. Cleaning Headlight Projector Lens Internal Face

    I'm installing a new HID/LED LO/HI combo for my headlights this weekend, and during the disassembly I noticed that I have some pretty heavy hazing on the internal face of one of the projector lenses....

    Re: Can I use my DA to sand?

    I've used my PC for color sanding with 1500/3000 grit trizact and it works beautifully (I used a low-orbit pneumatic finishing palm sander for the final cut). I will say that I would expect it to be...

    Re: Large hail in Alabama last night.

    I work as an engineer for Toyota, and given my experience, there's a good chance that a lot of them will just be totalled under insurance and replaced. The cost of repairing severe hail damage,...

    Re: How do these wheels look on my Car?

    Love the wheels. If you want to stay in that area of the color spectrum, go with a graphite, or gunmetal. That way you don't hide the design, but still have a darker appearance that's not so flashy. ...

    Re: Air DA using microfiber pads. Educate me

    The reason you would typically prefer electric is for the torque. Air pressure can create insane speeds, but you don't get the oomph that comes with an electric motor, resulting in stalling. Example:...

    I'll hop in here to say that you need to ensure that the air DA has a decent throw/orbit and is not a short throw/small orbit finishing sander (shorter throw decreases effectiveness exponentially)....
