    Re: Best Carnauba wax for shine/gloss red car !

    I'd suggest something a little different. Since you already have a Meguiar's sealant on the car, I always prefer to keep it within the same family. Meguiar's #26 Yellow Wax would be my choice. This...

    Re: CAR Dryers

    I bought a Milwaukee cordless compact blower for odds and ends around the house and it works well enough as a car dryer. I use it mostly for things like wheels, grilles, and door handles and mirrors....
  3. Re: What compound do you use on Hard audi paint?

    My 2019 VW GLI has "Pure Grey" paint that is hard as diamonds and the first time I tried to correct it, I used Griot's Correcting Cream on B&S microfiber cutting pads just to get down past the basic...

    Re: Griots 3-1 Cermaic wax

    My GLI is coated with CQuartz TiO2 and I recently used GG 3-1 as a topper for it as I used up my small bottle of reload. It definitely amped up the gloss, but it's a pretty thick product and not...

    Re: The Post a Picture of Your Ride as it Sits Thread

    Had my 2010 Xterra sitting in the garage for a week and slowly polished the whole thing out with Griot's Correcting Cream on yellow Uro-Tec's, and coated it with some guy's graphene coating (wanted...

    Oh man!! Yeah it reminds me of the old Zaino days of mixing the catalyzer with the sealant in those tiny little bottles :laughing:

    You will love it! I have seen him use PNS on top of this stuff as well. I'm a big believer in product "synergy" so I think I'm just gonna spring for the Blackfire Synthetic Spray Wax. Price wise it...

    Re: BLACKFIRE One Step - I'm a Believer!

    I've used 3D Speed as well, and it does leave the surface a bit slicker and has that wax-like smooth gloss to it. BF One Step definitely has the edge in correcting ability and a little bit more...

    Thank you! Have you used M799 in direct sun? I do really like the OTC Megs Ceramic Detailer, I'm assuming this is a more concentrated version of it?

    Re: BLACKFIRE One Step - I'm a Believer!

    Most of the time I use the SiO2 sealant, it's going on a car freshly polished with One Step. I use it to maintain my coated daily every now and then but that's easy in the garage. So not much need...

    Re: BLACKFIRE One Step - I'm a Believer!

    This is what I currently and normally use, and I agree it gives great gloss and is very easy to use, UNLESS it's in the direct sun. Then, it has basically zero working time and flashes to a hard...

    Man, that wipe off is a cinch. SO easy. I feel like I could have easily done the whole car before wiping off, even after baking in the sun. I'll pick this for my one step any time just because it...

    Re: 3D Bead It Up

    Awesome, thanks for sharing. Not that I need more toppers... But I always want more toppers. If it works well on ceramic then I may just give it a try.

    Re: First large order, any input?

    That looks like a pretty sweet kit. I'd grab that, maybe an extra 6 pack of LC flat pads, and a spray quick detailer to keep it topped off.

    Since the car is getting repainted soon, now is...

    Re: First large order, any input?

    Speed is a great AIO product, but you won't be needing its correcting properties if you are using 3D One before. It also doesn't have very long lasting protection. 3D Poxy is the Montan wax/sealant...

    This product has been out for a while now, does anyone have experience with it? 3D says it's an effective ceramic coating topper, but I'm also curious how it effects something like 3D...

    Thank you!! The owner was absolutely ecstatic! The paint flaking was an issue he was aware of, but wasn't really too concerned about. In fact, I went well beyond his expectations with the results of...

    Re: First large order, any input?

    I've used the BOSS pads and while they are stout and work well, I find that their ultra-thin profile makes it harder to buff curved panels. The G9 has plenty of torque and doesn't necessarily benefit...

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

    Finally had some time to clean up the daily! Quick maintenance wash with Reset, Ech2O as drying aid, and Griot's Satin Black Tire Coating on the tires.

    Can't say I've really washed after using iron remover, maybe agitated the surface a bit with a soapy mitt while it's still on there, and then just pressure rinsed it off afterwards. 99% of the time...

    Re: Polisher for weekend warrior

    I have a G9 that I upgraded to over an old Porter Cable style polisher. While it's not a forced rotation polisher, it has TONS of torque and will keep the pad spinning in most situations. And it's...
