    As Mike has posted in some pics he's added, those little platforms to stand on are great to have. They often sell quite cheap on Black Friday Sales.

    Not sure if this will help you, but I have seen Driving Glasses that are designed for night driving that supposedly cut glare. That might be an easier and less expensive option rather than windshield...

    Re: Favorite water based tire gel?

    I myself really like Optimum Opti-Bond. And I also like Optimum Tire Shine as well. Both great products to have on hand.
  5. Re: I think Im "done" with sealants... Any TRUE alternatives?

    Coming back to the two I suggested, is ease of use. No more difficult than a good detailer spray.

    I could practically do an entire vehicle blindfolded, remove the blindfold after I was done and...
  6. Re: I think Im "done" with sealants... Any TRUE alternatives?

    It's likely they don't bond and last quite as well when used as a topper over something else.
  7. Re: I think Im "done" with sealants... Any TRUE alternatives?

    It was DaveT435 who turned me onto UPGP once, sent me a super "care package" some years back and he included a sample bottle of Ultima paint guard plus. I bought some right after!

    Another great...
  8. Re: I think Im "done" with sealants... Any TRUE alternatives?

    The WOWAs usually are problem free in this regard.
    Either Ultima UPGP, or Otimum Opti-Seal. I'm sure there's others out there.

    I really like the two I mention for ease of use, no staining like...

    The Porter Cable PC7424XP might not be the latest and greatest, the prettiest, or most ergonomic, but it is a durable machine that will last, versatile, and capable for...

    Many products way back were a little bit over-hyped. But not bad products per se. Liquid Lustre, PolyGlycoat, Turtle Wax, Rain Dance, Nu-Finish, etc., I could probably mention another 2 dozen...

  13. Re: Going with Griot's G9, but will need to doctor up the old PC 7424

    Most everybody mentions the use of a smaller plate for use of 3" Pads with the PC Machines.

    I myself also very much like the use of 4" Pads on the PC7424.

    This combination is quite sweet IMO,...

    Re: First wash of my new car (C8 Vette)!

    And another thing that makes me cringe on so many sweet vehicles over the years that totally fubars, a state required Front License Plate. Just senseless IMO.

    Re: Ceramic Coatings?

    So may I ask, are you saying a re-application of CQuartz DLX will somehow rejuvenate and "cut through" a previously applied application gone bad, or will it be at such a point that such is too late? ...

    Re: New Car

    All depends how much the dealer did (bad) before you got the vehicle?

    I don't think it's a common prep task that a dealer will start buffing paint with polishers, etc. All they want to do is...

    I agree, those Jags are very nice looking SUVs. I seen a new one about 6 months ago in Black. It caught my eye because the paint was really black!

    As for the Dr. Colorchip, I've used it on 3 different vehicles, and used it enough where I pretty much understand the system.

    It is perfect? No. Is it a relatively easy system to use, and that...

    Re: Difficult first car to buff/polish?

    I think if you were to decide to wet sand any small areas that might benefit from such, I might look to do such by hand, and certainly not with the 3401.
    That's just my personal opinion though.

    As previously mentioned, the wash-decon first. I'd probably go full retard, and do an Iron-X decon, then clay.
