    Re: Megs M799?

    I would say try the Hybrid Ceramic Detailer first. If you like the results then step up to M799.

    Re: simple green

    Try some 3D APCs/Degreasers. They don't make you cough or bleed from your respiratory system.

    Re: simple green

    It comes from people's experience using the product.

    From what I've read it's not as safe as you'd think. And not as material compatible as you'd expect.

    Re: 3D degreaser, citrus vs yellow

    Super Citrus APC is one of the newer higher concentrated formulas. They sell them in the nano pails (64oz) and nano drums (128oz).

    With any of these if the tires are still wet there is a chance the liquid will fly off the tire. If you need to drive before they dry...

    What do you really expect?

    Always ask for what you want the result to be. Don't assume someone is going to read your mind and figure out what you want.

    With a coated windshield you can never rely on the rain sensor. It wants to wipe every drop of rain off the glass. When your windshield is coated you don't need or want that.

    Except it has horrible water behavior and doesn't last long in the real world. And it doesn't self clean in the rain either. Oh and it loses gloss until after the first wash.

    Gear driven (Flex 3401/XCE/Rupes Mille) do not work well with microfiber pads and are not recommended.

    Re: Griots pads

    Short answer is yes. You can use any liquid with any pad.

    Just make logical decisions. For example it's not common practice to use a finish polish with a heavy cutting wool pad.
