    Re: Unknown Bubbling in paint

    Is it only on the roof?
    Z06's from that era had a recall for failing adhesive that required removing and replacing the roof panel, so it possibly could have been repainted by the dealer doing the...

    Re: Some Oldz Blue Coral

    Here ya go:69450
    Still have these buried somewhere on my shelves. Back in the early 80's, a local store was going out of business and clearing all their waxes out. I bought out everything on the...
  4. Re: The Coronavirus Explained & What You Should Do

    Thank you for sharing, Mike.
    Of all the things I've heard and read, this is the most factual piece I've seen.

  5. Re: Spray wax streaking .. solved & Collinite 845 diluted

    I remember reading here a few years ago about some similar problems with Aquawax after multiple frequent applications. Apparently, AW has a higher solids content than many spray waxes, so it can...
  6. Re: Finally going to start doing/using RW and WW's... Here are my options

    I'm not a fan of waterless , except for my garage queen Camino, which never sees rain. I do much more rinseless than soap 'n bucket for the DD's in the fleet. All of the ones you mentioned are good,...
  7. Re: Tenkor Apex Zero -G Water hose. (Or other choices)

    I've had a Zero-G for over 5 years as my backyard hose the wife uses to water all her plants and flowers. She loves it since it's so lightweight and it's been faultless so far. About the only...

    Re: Non abrasive cleaner wax

    In the DG line, both 501 and 105 have some good cleaning properties, with 501 being the more aggressive of the two.

    Re: Regular wax on rims. ??

    I've been using FK1000p on wheels for a few years now. I agree a dedicated coating may be better, but I've been very pleased with the level of protection and longevity. I've tried Collinites, both...

    Re: Cleaning White Car

    I agree with using a cleaner wax or AIO periodically, especially on lighter colors. My favorite when serious correction is not needed is DG501. It never ceases to amaze me how it makes white paints...
  13. Sticky: Re: The Secret to Removing Oxidation and Restoring a Show Car Finish to Antique Single Stage Paints

    I've done dozens of M07 treatments, but never had one rained on. How long was it outside? Did it get dirty or just get wet? If it just got rained on, I'd be tempted to just proceed with wipe-off. You...
  14. Re: Okay...who’s done it? Polish a ceramic stove top with a DA?

    I've done my Bosch smoothtop a couple times. My wife normally keeps it up by hand, using the polish recommended by the dealer. When the stain level gets ahead of her, she calls for help and I bring...

    Re: Thoughts on using waterblades

    You certainly won't regret your purchase of PFM's.
    Like others, I use my waterblade for glass to save both time and towels.

  17. Re: what jackstands to get so i don't get crushed

    If you've got good quality jack stands and firm level ground, I wouldn't worry. I've been in the car business my entire adult life and prior to the days when every mechanic had a lift, jack stands...

    Re: Poor boys black hole glaze

    In my experience, yes, but not a night and day difference.
    I just recently prepped my El Camino with 30+ year old OEM lacquer for an annual judged show that I enter. Some of the panels have nasty...
  19. Thanks to Mike Phillips and the AGO community!

    Every year I enter an All-Chevy Show at a local dealership, hosted by the Steeltown Corvette Club, the club founded by the legendary Don Yenko.

    I enter my '87 El Camino, an unrestored survivor....

    Re: Sealant comparison

    I'll be interested in seeing the results of that comparison, as I have and use both. FCS / AW is more user-friendly IMO, less sensitive to temp or humidity variations, but your longevity stats with...
  21. Re: Daily ‘clean ups’...Best process & products?

    IMO, QD's , when used on a dry vehicle, are only for those which have acquired dust while parked inside and stationary. I use GG's Best of Show, Speed Shine, and Kenotech on my Dark Burgundy El...

    Re: Waxing and Polishing Towels?

    Poll: Re: Favorite Waterless Wash

    I've been using 1:8. It streaks some on my Black Lacrosse DD, which is coated with WG, but works great on the rest of the family fleet, all of which just have a sealant or wax. I'd be interested too...

    Re: Flagged tipped brush & Duragloss #253

    I used the Zep Purple at no stronger than 1:4 and it did well on the nastiest of tires. However, as mentioned, the fumes are atrocious if you're working in an enclosed space. Based on the...
  25. Re: Meguiar not Meguiar's - Car Detailing History

    Back in 1971, I did a full lacquer repaint on my 1967 Malibu from white to copper. The painter didn't trust me with a rotary, since it was finished with a couple coats of clear lacquer over the...
