    Re: Show Car Wax/Sealant

    I agree.

    Additionally, I'm of the opinion (based on my painting background) that LSPs have much less impact on overall appearance than the quality of the paint application and the polishing...

    Re: Show Car Wax/Sealant

    If I were in the OPs shoes, I'd probably try several products as LSPs to find which I liked best, and what I like "best" would be subject to change... One day I might like Product A and the next,...

    About a year ago I bought a Rupes Mille and while the no-stall characteristic of it, or any gear-driven, is really nice, I have found my old free-spinning MT300 to finish out...

    Re: 21 year old Mustang advice

    I'd guess 10-12 times. It's 6 years old and I've done it probably twice a year. The first polishing when it was brand new was with a rotary/wool followed by a DA/foam. Since it's always been a...

    Re: 21 year old Mustang advice

    98CayenneTA's explanation of how to use a PTG is the best explanation I've heard.

    That said, there will always be some subjectivity in whatever conclusions you reach from the measurements.

    Re: Wheel Finish Faded - Restoring / Streaks?

    My opinion... The finish is deteriorated beyond the point of no return. The finish has become too porous.

    The improvement that you see immediately following a product application is from the...
  8. Re: Cleaner wax without wax topping w/ collinite 476 ???

    "cleaner wax that doesn't really have a wax in it"... That would be a paint cleaner or polish.

  10. Re: Reminder: Mower/small engine winter storage

    Good advice!

    I have a Troy Bilt chipper/shredder that doesn't get used all that often. After it's first use it sat for a year or so before I used it again. It wouldn't start. I had to disassemble...

    Re: Nanoskin Wash Mitt; Fail

    I have and use the NanoSkin sponges, red and blue, along with their Glide Clay Lube. While they do get sticky after use I have not seen a degradation in performance.

    Re: Steal a Base - Steal a Taco

    Done!

    Just under 5 hours, 73.7 miles, and 10 of the 13 planned stops. I couldn't find two of them (stops 7 & 9) and I skipped stop 12.

    I ate 8 tacos along the way, have 1 left over, and gave...

    Glad you are liking it. Goes to show how different people can have different opinions.

    The first two pics are what I believe you are assessing as burn throughs.

    Re: Remove house hold paint

    How large are the paint spots?

    If they are just tiny specks then the clay option is a good choice. But if they are larger blobs of paint (> 1/8") the clay may not work as well.

    In that case...

    Personally, the only time I have ever seen this type of paint defects is on panels that have been repainted. I've never seen it on OEM paint.

    Re: coating after paint

    I would wait. Anything below 70 degrees severely slows cure times. And if the current high temperatures are only in the 60s that's even worse.

    At those temperatures I'd wait a minimum of 90 days,...
