  1. Re: How Often Should A DA Polisher Be Used?

    AIO's are really mild, so there should be minimal wear on your clear coat each time you apply it if you use it with a moderate polishing pad. How many times a year are you talking about using an...

    Re: Midwest Winter Paint Protection

    I do just like everyone else here. Started off using Klasse SG, upgraded to Collinite 845, and then moved on to coatings and never looked back. When the winter months do set in, I'll run the cars...
  3. Re: Washing/Rinsing undercarriage without running water

    I thought you were talking about the hand wash places, not the automatic ones.

    Interesting those places claim to have an underbody, but you can't tell it's done. Around here, the underbody spray...

    Re: New - McKee’s 37 Krystal SiO2 Paste Wax

    Wouldn't a "SiO2 Paste Wax" do the same thing? Anyting on top of a coating will mask the properties of the base coat.
  5. Re: Washing/Rinsing undercarriage without running water

    In the conditions you describe, even if you were able to clean the undercarriage at home, the minute you left your parking lot it would be dirty again. In the depths of winter, our cars are never...

    Re: New - McKee’s 37 Krystal SiO2 Paste Wax

    Why don't you use a canauba spray wax after every wash? Even if you only wash every 2~3 weeks, you'd probably get the same result and it would a fast/easy solution.

    Re: Temporary LSP - What would you use?

    How long do you need this temporary step to last?

    With winter not too far away, and life being crazy for you I'd simply give the vehicles a good wash and then hit them with the most durable...
  8. Re: Hyundai Veloster R-Spec Vs. Ford Fiesta ST

    I owned a 2010 Mazda3 hatch for a while and passed it down to my oldest daughter when I got my GTI. She still drives it today with 90K+ miles on the clock. Flawless car and the ONLY repair has been...
  9. Re: Hyundai Veloster R-Spec Vs. Ford Fiesta ST

    Sadly, only in the US. The US market has done it to themselves by going all in on soggy, boring, SUV's. I've read the new Fiesta ST is spectacular.



    Again, sadly, the car is not available...
  10. Re: Hyundai Veloster R-Spec Vs. Ford Fiesta ST

    Sorry about the late response. Didn't get on all weekend.

    My 2014 Mk6 GTI was flawless. In 7 years an 68K miles of ownership I only had one mechanical issue which was handled under the...
  11. Re: Hyundai Veloster R-Spec Vs. Ford Fiesta ST

    I don’t mind a tight seat. My issues were with the placement of the side bolsters. They just didn’t fit my body shape.

    I realize the Veloster has a door...um...thing on the passenger side, but...
  12. Re: Hyundai Veloster R-Spec Vs. Ford Fiesta ST

    Tough call. Both great cars.

    I think I'd take the Ford has the usability advantage with the four doors allowing for better access to the rear seat. The Hyundia has more torque down low, so it...
  13. Re: Struggling with Product Selection After Ceramic Coating

    I don't really notice it changing the look at all and only use it post-wash to take care of water spots. I'm not looking for any sort of gloss boost. The coating is plently glossy all on its own. ...
  14. Re: Struggling with Product Selection After Ceramic Coating

    I'll add a second vote for Ech2O as a post-wash wipe down, QD, etc to be used on a coated car. I use it all the time as well and really like it.

    In addition to the list of car soaps provided...

    Re: Thinning a Ceramic Coating

    This is one of the the reasons I won't use coatings like McKee's or PBL any more. The first version McKee's did seem to have a much longer shelf life. My bottle lasted about a year, but I noticed...
  16. Re: Just a random thought about Cancoat vs Mc Kees 37 Paint coating..

    I only used one coat at a time. However, on the last application I applied one coat and then about seven months later I applied a second coat in order to get me through the winter and add a little...
  17. Re: Just a random thought about Cancoat vs Mc Kees 37 Paint coating..

    So far I've used CanCoat on a midsized SUV and applied three coates (not all at once) to a GTI. I still have about 1/4 of the can left.

    My can is now a little over a year old and everything...

    Re: RIP Jessi Combs

    I enjoyed watching her work on Mythbusters and The List.

    I am impressed by the fact she was not only a great hot shoe with a great racing resume, but also a first rate fabricator. Not many...
  19. Re: Just a random thought about Cancoat vs Mc Kees 37 Paint coating..

    Same here. I've never had to use more than one spray head.
  20. Re: Prima Amigo vs chemical paint cleaners vs fine polishes

    Based on what you are wanting to do, I'd go with a fine finishing polish like the Perfecting Cream. However, you still need to think of the paint hardness when considering removal of even light...
  21. Re: Which shampoo to use for paint correction prep?

    Agree as well. The polishing alone will eliminate anything already on the vehicle, to include a paint coating which clay and iron removers won't remove.

    I only have one car wash shampoo (Optimum...

    Re: Ceramic Coating Removal

    Agree a light finishing polish will remove the coating. I've removed small high spots by hand and also done entire pannels easily with a machine.

    With every coating I've removed, it is very...

    Re: Griot's Garage 9.9.19 New Product Release

    I could be proven wrong, but I don't think it will be a coating.

    Last year, I listened to a podcast featuring Nick Griot. On the podcast he said the only way they would do a coating was if they...
  24. Re: 1st time machine compounding, a bit disappointed

    My only addition would be the fact a rubbing compound or even Menz 400 might not be needed on a Toyota. That paint is VERY soft and easy to correct. I've done quite a bit of correction with just a...

    Re: Ceramic Coating

    Three layers of a coating will last a long time and your car will look great, but it won't make it resistant to swirls. Esoteric will be able to polish out all the swirls you have today, but over...
