    Re: Steam car washes

    They are expensive. But well worth the price in my opinion. Mine has cut my time way down on interiors and things like that. I got a good deal on mine. But I always wondered before if they were worth...

    Re: Steam car washes

    I have owned many Steamers in my life time (McCulloch, VX5000, Euro Steam, Vapor Rino, Fortador). The only two I would recommend for a steam wash would be Optima and Fortador. You could do it with...

    Re: Nextractor for shop vacuum

    I was using the Ridgid SmartCart vacuum with this setup. Awesome vacuum that I still use today. I now run a HydroForce Nautilus extractor.
  4. Re: Festool Rotex sanders/polishers for da car

    I know this is kind of a old thread. But I have switched all of my machines over from Rupes, Flex, and Mirka to Festool. The Festool tools just feel better and give me better results. I use a rotary...

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    I know what you mean. But they are a solid company. I had mine for two and a half years with no problems. They are solid units and good quality. That sounds right. I paid somewhere around $3,600 for...

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    A Vapor Rino, ES2100, VX5000, etc is what you need. To be honest a Fortador is way out of your ballpark. You need something smaller. They will clean whatever you need them to. But are small enough to...

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    I wouldn’t worry about it while it’s running or while you are using. But I wouldn’t leave it or store it outside in the winter for any period of time.

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    The diesel is not bad. I use mine in my garage and you can’t smell any fumes. Plus the hose is 30ft and you can get a 30ft extension hoses.
    No electric steamer is going to have the same performance...

    Re: Fortador Vs Dupray Steam Cleaner

    I currently have the Fortador Pro Plus, Vapor Rino 220v, Euro-Steam ES2100 and McCulloch. The Fortador blows all the others away. But this is because it is a diesel powered machine and has no loss of...
  11. Re: confused with Menzerna polish product chart

    Not necessarily. The “pre polish” is more of a starting point. Meant to be your first step. So the gloss is really not a factor if it is meant to be followed up. Then you just go up from there with...
  12. Re: Need help to start new detailing business

    I agree with the above statement. I would attend the detailing boot camp and bring your employees with you. I would not worry about coatings or paint correction in the beginning until you have been...
  13. Re: Tenkor Apex Zero -G Water hose. (Or other choices)

    I’ve had a 50’ going on 5 years now at the shop. They are a good hose. I will be buying another one when needed.

    Re: Pixie foam pads

    Will they be releasing a 2” backing plate? I thought it was kind of odd the kit didn’t come with one.
  15. Re: Dupray Super Inox vs Hill Injection Steamer

    Glad to help. If you have any other questions just let me know.
  16. Re: Dupray Super Inox vs Hill Injection Steamer

    I would definitely keep your extractor. You will be covered on all areas with the extractor and steamer. I’ve heard good things about Vapor Chief. The only thing I have against them is when you use...
  17. Re: Dupray Super Inox vs Hill Injection Steamer

    No worries. I feel for the same videos. I had plans of buying a steam extraction machine and selling my hot water extractor. I’m so glad I didn’t sell my hot water extractor first. Don’t get me wrong...
  18. Re: Dupray Super Inox vs Hill Injection Steamer

    Steam extraction will never replace hot water extraction. It is a handy thing to have on lightly soiled vehicles. But the steam can not penetrate deep enough to remove heavy dirt and stains. It can...

    Re: Paintless dent removal

    They have schools for PDR. I would say someone with two years would start to have a pretty good grasp on things.
    PDR tools are not cheap. Quality ones anyway. You could have $5k-$10k in a kit easy.

    Lol. IGL is a damn cult.
  22. Re: SEMA 2019 New Products - New Products Coming Soon!

    Good deal. I know UHS doesn’t get a lot of love. I think the UNO line will be a hit. No worries. I’m curious to see what else is released in the next couple of days.
  23. Re: SEMA 2019 New Products - New Products Coming Soon!

    No worries. From what I’ve gathered it cuts and finishes about like Rupes UHS. But has a protection in it. If you are not familiar with UHS. It is comparable to 3D One.
  24. Re: SEMA 2019 New Products - New Products Coming Soon!

    I’ve talked to a few people overseas that have been using UNO Protect for a while and they love it. Apparently it has been out over there for awhile now.
  25. Re: SEMA 2019 New Products - New Products Coming Soon!

    Does anyone have any information on the Rupes Q Mag?
    I thought it was going to be a Mark II Nano. But they are marketing it as a edge sander. It was going to be a toss up for me between the PXE 80...
