  1. Re: Marks on front glass where rubber wipers sit. How to remove and keep from coming back?

    It's hard to place a life expectancy on wiper blades. I've seen blades that were some good years old on a garage kept vehicle in the Midwest that looked just like new.

    Then blades that were 3-5...
  2. Re: Marks on front glass where rubber wipers sit. How to remove and keep from coming back?

    Instead of Paint Thinner, try Alcohol. And a good glass cleaner is always a good thing to have. Sprayway, or Invisible Glass are good ones, easy to get, and are both safe for use on inside tinted...

    Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    That's about all I can conclude is well, what others have touched upon. The Water, Fabric Softener in the Towels, or a vehicle that was washed too soon before full coating cure.

    If it's the last...

    Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    Yes, a little bit of streaking, but what I'd call it was a light film and haze left everywhere on the paint, glass, and chrome. Of course the vehicle was rinsed fully, and then wiped down with a...

    Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    Odd, that I myself also had a similar problem like this, and it was with CP Reset.

    And I initially thought the same thing too, thought I used a bit too much of Reset, and the second time I used...
  6. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    Honestly, I hope you don't see me as a fake for suggesting Sonax Polymer Net Shield as a worthy product, as I do have a brand new Can of it here, but in truth I have never used the product yet myself...
  7. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    I would say realistically for a daily driver that may not be garage kept, I estimate more accurately about 4-5 months good protection with Collinite #845, and about 6-7 months with #476 Collinite...
  8. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    I'll concur with Paul above. Such products like the two Collinite products he mentions are very good, and can be an easier to apply protectant than some of the durable Coatings.

    There's no time...

    Re: The Truck Roof

    The 2-fold advantage of a durable coating is not only better and longer lasting protection, but less wear and tear on the owner!

    The initial cost outlay seems high for such, but is actually more...

    Re: The Truck Roof

    I know the pain. It's a lot of vehicle. And there's instances where large SUVs can even be worse, take a Chevy-GMC Suburban as one example. Many too have roof racks, and trim making the job even...

    Re: Hazy gloss black interior trim

    That era of early 90's Dodge Trucks were essentially junk! They put a killer turbo diesel Motor in a crap truck. Basically not much in the way of aftermarket parts like spring kits, add ons, etc.

    Re: Hazy gloss black interior trim

    Only other idea that pops into my mind, and it would be for areas that aren't commonly touched.

    You'll have insane gloss and shine, in fact it might be too much! Easy, relatively cheap versus a...

    Re: Hazy gloss black interior trim

    Tough call.
    I take it that the picture you've shown in particular, is a grab hold on the side door with an integrated door latch, correct?

    If so, these areas which I'll assume are basically some...

    Re: Turtle hard shell wax

    I'll agree with what Mike Phillips has said about the acquisition a DA Polisher. I'd say seriously consider getting yourself one. Best advice I can add, is there are often many great sales here and...

    Re: Turtle hard shell wax

    Sometimes Black vehicles and hard pastes, or certain waxes-sealants can spell trouble.

    Re: Turtle hard shell wax

    You could try a wipe down with a detailer spray first to see if that evens out the finish.
  17. Re: Dilution products- distilled water or purified?

    Many modern day Clothes Irons don't necessarily require the use of distilled water anymore as I understand, but I've seen detrimental effects on Clothes, particularly expensive dress shirts by using...
  18. Re: Dilution products- distilled water or purified?

    Distilled Water will be quite shelf stable for dilution of chemicals. There's been times where I found I had to slightly cut and dilute products like Polishes and Compounds, just so thick they'd be a...
  19. Re: Well, first day using random orbital polisher, and I failed

    Thank You Mike, for the taking the time of posting the Intros of the "Detailing Bible".

    The last picture and comments made me smile, and brought back memories of the olden days again for me.

    You could try whatever you might have on hand, an All Purpose Cleaner on a Towel, and might remove such if not too bad. Something like Back to Black might remove, and then again might only hide the...

    I wanted to add, that there has been instances where I resorted to Speed 6 with the Porter Cable. Might've been a couple reasons for this, the Pad loading up with too much product, and such can kill...
  23. Re: Well, first day using random orbital polisher, and I failed

    There's probably no harm caused by mentioning the brand of the polisher for one. You say a 3", is it a Griots 3"? (I own one) Many will tell you that this is not a powerhouse unit, it takes...

    Re: Getting swirls out of black Toyota Tundra

    The White Lake Country Thinpro Pads are usually the best pads to team with a free wheeling DA like the PC7424 Machine. Even Mike Phillips commonly says he prefers a flat pad best for corrections.

    I'll add to what my buddy Paul says above.

    Not sure what PC Machine you have, just regular 7424, or the 7424XP? (I have the newer XP Model)

    I have often found speed 5 will get it, slower yes,...
