    Re: TORQ 10FX stopped working ? Wth!

    This is also true for Rupes. Canadians always gets shafted when it comes to detailiing products and tools. Not only are we paying twice what they sell for elsewhere, but trying to get support is...

    Re: TORQ 10FX stopped working ? Wth!

    Same thing happened to my Griot's Garage Boss G15. They told me to replace the brushes... I have been lazy about this, I still need to do it ;) Give it a try, might fix it for you.

    Re: Trizact 5000 availability

    The 5000 grit I am using now is sold at the bodyshop supply store I go to. Pretty expensive stuff, about 2$ for a 3 inch disk. I can't remember what I paid for my Meguiar's Unigrit disks I...
  5. Re: Optimum Opti-Bond still a relevant tire dressing?

    Ok, will give it a try next time I refill. At 3:1 I typically see browning melting off without even touching. So far I think that this product is really good for cleaning tires. I purchased P&S...
  6. Re: Optimum Opti-Bond still a relevant tire dressing?

    I have never used Tuf shine so I cannot compare. OTC is very easy to use. Just use a tire applicator and spread it. Takes about 30 seconds to do a tire. The hard part is always the prep,...

    Re: Electric pressure washer ?'s

    Pressure washers are the only way to wash cars ;) Safest and most efficient way to remove heavy dirt from the paint. I strongly suggest you get one.

    2100 PSI would do fine. Just make sure you...
  8. Re: Optimum Opti-Bond still a relevant tire dressing?

    I started using Optimum Tire Coating and so far I like it. I dream of a day where every client of mine decides to buy that upgrade ;)

    For my personal vehicles, coating is the only way for me.

    Re: Big argument starter...Lol

    Mike sold me on the no handle on the polisher early on ;) I can see benefits of having one one. The D handle is probably good. It won't put pressure on the wrong area while working like the side...

    Re: Issues with Buff and Shine Pads

    Do you have a long throw machine or a regular DA? Buff&shine flatpads don't do well on long throws. On mine, the velcro kept failing and it was throwing the pads off the backplate as soon as I...

    The blue HDO pad is my default for all in ones and 1 steps. It is able to remove a good amount of damage while finishing really well with all my polishes and compounds. I usually use either...

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

    Finally found time to work on my company van today.

    Purchased it last month and the paint was in horrible condition. Tons of scratches, paint chips, etc.

    So this morning I decided to take...

    Re: The Mother-in-law problem

    My personnal view on this is: If the person who owns the vehicle doesn't care for it, why would I waste my time making it better? The only reason I would work on her car if I were you is to avoid...

    Re: Measuring clear coat ? is it possible ?

    High end paint gauges can measure each layer. I have no idea how they do that but they can tell you how much clear you have. From what I understand, you can expect to pay thousands of dollars for...

    Re: I'm SO confused - PPL & Ceramic Coating

    No. I am not saying that. 15 man hours, if 2 people are working on it is roughly 7.5 hours of work time.

    I think Ceramic Pro overhypes they product like crazy, a bit like that crap: F11 do. ...

    Re: I'm SO confused - PPL & Ceramic Coating

    I agree with you. Unless it's a show car and you need the paint to be absolutelly flawless, compounds finish so well now that only a finishing polish is required. So if they do 3 steps, they...

    Re: I'm SO confused - PPL & Ceramic Coating

    The process can vary a lot from one installer to the next. So for him to say he cannot comment on what other do is right on point.

    The actual installation of the ceramic coating doesn't take that...

    Re: 2018 Tesla Model 3

    Well, we are talking enough debris to basically sandblast the bottom of the car to bare metal. I know PPF is resilient, but I don't think it would survive a constant assault like that for very long.

    Re: 2018 Tesla Model 3

    That really depends how you coat them.

    Because I am mobile, I coat the face of the wheels as part of all my coating packages. But I don't do the barrels.

    I had one guy asked me to do only his...

    If you have clients with Teslas Model 3, inform them that they need to get mud flaps installed on the front wheels. There is a defect with that model. The wheels throw rocks and other debris along...
  24. Re: Renny Doyle Beadmaker Revisited - 2month Standalone Review

    Ok, but if you are using it every time you wash the car (from what I understand from your comments)... how can you determine how long it lasts?

    Re: 3D ONE in full sun....

    I hate dust too ;) One thing, you have to degrease a lot more with 3D one. Meguiar's products are usually water based so they wipe up easier. But I think the trade of is worth it when working...
