    Re: 1969 Pontiac Grand Prix Megs #7 rub down

    I love all GPs! I grew up being a Pontiac guy.

    This body style is actually 69-72. The 68s were the previous body style and had a unique center-peak on the rear of the deck lid.

    Front bumper and trim looks really nice.

    I haven't worked on an old original car in a long time. Sure would like to get my hands on one.

    Re: 1973 Cadillac

    Looks great! Always loved Caddy's from that era.

    Don't you love how flat that lacquer lays down. Nothing like today's orange peel norm. GM had great looking paint jobs in those days.

    You don't...

    Re: Wash Mitt Battle

    I'm a wool pad guy... Never understood the mitt thing. Even if I have a mitt I use it like a pad.

    As for the microfiber, I never liked the looks of those dreadlocks and don't see how they can...

    I think it is like anything else in life... Some people are just better at it than others.

    Re: G9 Polisher??

    When you go to look at the tool, take a look at the ID label on the tool. Both of my Griot's polishers have the model name/tool type on the first line of the label.

    I do my windshield with whatever product I'm using on the paint. Only exception is I don't compound or polish unless it's absolutely necessary as there is a hard coating on the shield that you don't...

    Re: Polisher for weekend warrior

    Even though I don't have one, I'd also recommend the G9. I recommended this polisher to a friend of mine a month or so ago and he loves it.

    My personal free-spinning polisher is a MT300. But if I...

    Assuming the tour pack is a new factory painted Harley part, I doubt that the polishing step would do much... Harley factory paint is typically some of the nicest factory paint around. It's really a...

    The way I handle the "DO NOT WASH" thing is to never take anything to a dealer, or other shop, unless there is absolutely no way around it. An expensive warranty job is about the only reason I've...
