    As I walk out the door, I'll take a picture of some tires I coated at least 6 months ago for an all original 1970 Corvette.

  2. Re: Video Class: Tire Coatings - Machine Scrubbing Tires - BEFORE & AFTER Pictures

    Yes - but that was the goal. AND - On the driver's side I only applied one coat or one application, like you saw in the video. On the passenger side front time I wiped around the tire twice.

  4. Re: Flex PXE80 pad/wetsanding pads/sandpaper questions

    I cut my own 1" discs out of 3M Trizact and Mirka Abralon 6" discs. These both have a velcro backing so you can use them with the 1" velcro backing plate instead of the 1" sanding backing plate.

  5. Re: Video Class: Tire Coatings - Machine Scrubbing Tires - BEFORE & AFTER Pictures

    I get much longer. But I apply 5-6 coats.





    Yep - just car wash soap and water. You cold even use a spray detailer or waterless wash to clean the coating.

    The SONAX brush is a great brush, I use it when I want to scrub but at the same time be careful.

    Another great interior brush is this Horse Hair Brush.

    Exactly.

    I think one of the "issues" is for so long in the car detailing world, both the enthusiast side and the pro aspect, it's been ingrained in the brain to "layer" something onto the initial...

  14. Re: Pre-Production UDOS Polisher from LC Power Tools - First Look Pictures

    Copy that.

    If that is the case, the answer is no. The only gear-drive action in the current UDOS is when it's in rotary mode. All the orbit modes are free spinning.

    My guess is to make this...

  19. Re: Pre-Production UDOS Polisher from LC Power Tools - First Look Pictures

    Have to be honest, I'm not sure exactly what you mean?

    If you're asking,

    Can the UDOS in ROTARY mode be used to machine sand?


    The answer is "no".
