    Re: De Lamination or Scuff Marks?

    I'm going with scuff marks. I've used the BL tire clear coat and never seen that. Judging by the chips out of the rims, parking is not a strong suit.

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    Re: Mike or anyone ever seen this?

    Correct. The grill is a matte finished plastic insert. There is a light texture to it, and it's not smooth. It isn't heavily textured, but I did try cleaning it with a wash mitt and wash soap...

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

    Finished a full detail this morning since it wasn't raining, 90 degrees, or 70% humidity since our outbuilding isn't finished yet. :D

    Mike or anyone ever seen this?

    So the Mercedes I detailed this past weekend has this on the grill. It's a plastic grill that's been coated with a matte aluminum finish. As you can see in the pictures, it appears that someone has...

    Pads - Lake Country hydro tech

    Interior products - Pinnacle/Blackfire

    Re: My new favorite detailing tool

    They state for interior or exterior dressing. I used it to apply leather conditioner and vinyl dressing. I also have a pair of those green MF mitts but haven't used them yet.

    Re: Should I upgrade to a Flex 3401?

    I respectfully disagree. Using the right pads, right products, and time behind the tool, a detailer can get a quality finish with a 3401 (or Rupes Melle). It's not the tools, it's the tool using...
