    Re: Hose nozzle

    I used a fireman's nozzle for a couple years and went back to one of those rotating turret types for a while.

    With the weather warming up and washing season upon us (if it ever stops raining) I'm...

    Re: DP Interior All In One

    DP did have a product called their Interior Surface Protectant which did the same thing and was quite good. They just didn't call it an AIO interior product. This past weekend I finally finished...
  3. Re: 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S-Model 4MATIC Wagon get's coated

    The car looks great!

    I'm a huge fan of wagons and more so the "super" wagons like the E63 AMG or the RS6 Avant. They are my dream family hauler/road trip vehicle.
  4. Re: Difference between the Autopia and Autogeek forums.

    The answer is no, but it's complicated.

    The parent company is Palm Beach Motoring Group. The company was founded by Bob McKee and grew to include several brands and the Autogeek forum and...

    Re: COMING SOON! Project 98!

    Since the DP line morphed into the McKee's 37 line, I wonder which formulation this products will use. Are they totally new formula's under the names DP users recognize, or are do they use the old...

    Re: 22ple HPC Application

    I listed a few light polishes I've used earlier in this post: Sonax 04-06, Optimum Hyperpolish, and Meguiars Ultimate Polish. While thinking about it this morning I've also used Blackfire SCR...

    Re: 22ple HPC Application

    I use the same pads, they are my go-to for most jobs.

    I would start with a light polish with the pad and see if everything is correcting out the way you'd like. You should be pretty surprised at...

    Re: 22ple HPC Application

    You've received great advice on the coatings, so I'll weigh in on the choice of polish. Like Mike mentioned, in many cases paint color is not important. Go with a quality polish and it will make...
  9. Re: Best Ceramic Coating for New Orca Black Metallic Audi

    Agree. Rather than focusing on one you think looks best on a specific color, I'd say go for one with has other properties you are looking for like durability, application method, price, etc. I've...

    Re: 2 new to me brushes.

    How soft are the bristles on the Carand brush?

    I used the Mother's version for a while and did not find the bristles to be very soft. I'm currently using a generic one found at a big box store...
  11. Re: How to restore very slightly oxidized headlights to factory clarity?

    Good point!

    I didn't start polishing the headlights on any of my vehicles until they started turning cloudy. By then, there was little/no UV protection left and there was nothing lost by...
  12. Re: How to restore very slightly oxidized headlights to factory clarity?

    Another option which has worked really well for me is the Wolfgang Headlight kit sold here at AG.

    I like the two-step process and the small pads and cordless drill compatible backing plate. I...

    Re: Polish Age

    While I mentioned earlier I try to stay with small quantities, for me that philosophy really only applies to things like sealants, coatings, polishes, QD's ect. When it comes to car wash shampoo...
  14. Re: Sonax PNS, GYEON Cancoat or Optimum Opti-Seal

    In my mid-west USA climate, CanCoat will easily last 10 months (maybe longer) with regular washes and occasional toppings with Cure. I was doing a torture test on my previous car, but traded it in...

    Re: Buffing too much ?

    Going forward I would highly recommend using a much milder approach to polishing out your truck. Just because there are some marks doesn't mean you need to go straight for a compound and cutting...

    Re: What do you keep in your car?

    I carry as little as possible in my vehicle because I really hate clutter.

    Standard items in my car are a small flashlight, a tire pressure gauge, a cell phone charger, and a cover for the driver...

    Re: Polish Age

    I personally like the 8oz bottles even better for these reasons, but very few companies even offer them. Since I only polish out my vehicles every year or two, the stuff lasts forever.

    I have a...

    Poll: Re: Battle of Entry Level Coatings...

    That many layers of very durable products should last a really long time. My daughter's car has a single coat of CQuartz UK 2.0 and its going strong after 18 months when I saw it at Christmas time.

    Poll: Re: Battle of Entry Level Coatings...

    If I had to choose between using CanCoat or CQuartz UK right now, I'd go with CQuartz. This is ONLY because a longer lasting coating fits my life better right now, not because of the quality of the...

    Poll: Re: Battle of Entry Level Coatings...

    My thoughts too. CQuartz Lite's closest competitor would be CanCoat. If you wanted a Gyeon One competitor I'd say it would be CQuartz or maybe GTechniq CSL.

    I'm currently using CQuartz UK on...

    It shouldn't be a surprise. CQuartz is offered at a reasonable price, is easy to apply, looks good, easy to maintain (don't need to do anything special), and lives up to it's durability claims. ...

    Great car and amazing color. By the looks of the wheels, you have some of the other performance options too, right?

    I'd go with a variation of Guz's suggestion. I'd simply coat it with CQuartz...

    Re: Hide scratches on Black SUV

    Poorboy's Black Hole and Prima Amigo are designed to be topped with a sealant. I don't know if others like 3M Imperial Hand Glaze will work the same.
