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

    McKee's 37 Coating Prep Wash is legit. It really seems to remove old sealants and stuff w/o much trouble.

    Re: applying ceramic for the first time,

    If it’s already polished I’d not use Iron-X/Trix. Save it for when Lite is done and you’re getting the car ready for a new application.

    Re: BigBoi vs Metro Blaster Sidekick

    I have a sidekick, a McKee’s 37 Turbo dryer, and a leaf blower. The one I use the most is the sidekick. So much easier to carry and use it. The others have more power but so hard to manage around...

    Re: applying ceramic for the first time,

    You should still do it before they polish. After years the bonded contaminants are on your coating (or whatever is left of it), not under it. So you're just removing those in order for them to...

    Re: McKee's 37 SiO2 Series

    Hopefully it has some shelf life. Old one would start curing before you get to use it.

    Re: applying ceramic for the first time,

    Use two towels at a time. After about half car you switch them with clean ones. Soak the ones you were using. So 4 towels per layer of coating. You can use more but I’d say 4 is the minimum for...

    Re: applying ceramic for the first time,

    Yeah, 4 towels probably only enough to do one layer of whatever coating it is. Lite will require same amount of towels.
    2oz sound fine, you really just need them to stay wet and any cleaner will...
  8. Re: Wolfgang Über Rinseless Wash as QD for Coating,

    Smells fine to me, cherry like but in a fake way, like children’s Tylenol.
    I liked Uber’s smell better than N-914 which is what I use now due to having only coated cars. I don’t want gloss...

    Re: applying ceramic for the first time,

    You should decontaminate. 3 years is a lot of time letting new contaminants land on the car.
    Only technique and good lighting are a guarantee to not have high spots. No towel will give you that...

    Re: And then... There was a G8 (Polisher)

    I like that they put the progressive trigger on this. I will likely buy one to replace my 7424XP which I use with a 3” BP. This should work nicely with my Boss G15.

    Re: And then... There was a G8 (Polisher)

    Not happening. Those machines expect 120V from that port and you won’t get a battery that outputs that. There would have to be a transformer inside the machine.

    May be but I was always afraid of it getting messed up for starting past that 1 hour. I've read some stories of it just turning cloudy and overall a problem that needs to be removed and started...
  14. Re: Streaks on rear (tinted) windshield after Iron-X

    I've had it leave some streaks that were only visible if really sunny right in front of my eyes. Happens if the glass is hot when you apply Iron-X. With time it seemed to go away. Didn't really...

    Re: CQ UK 3.0 flash time

    You should be able to apply it to a 2x2ft area, then apply it to the next, and perhaps even a 3rd, then come back wiping the areas in the same order of application. If it's smearing the product...

    And $270 for polishing and coating is way too cheap. You can bet it’s half a$$ work.

    Re: applying ceramic for the first time,

    You want to do Trix before claying and polishing. So you can do that before they get your car. Just make sure to wash it after applying and before taking your car in for polishing.

    Re: applying ceramic for the first time,

    If you don’t think they’ll clay the entire car are they the right people to polish it? Either specify you want everything clayed or clay it yourself before they polish it. You don’t want to clay...

    Re: Help build a G9 “kit”

    Power is not the biggest improvement in my opinion. The ergonomics, lighter body, detachable cord, added cooling for the pads, those are the big ones. Polishing is a chore and if you can be more...

    If you’re only getting one machine go for the G9. The improvement over the GG6 is huge.

    Re: Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant

    I think you’d be fine either way. If dlux touches the paint it’s no big deal. And if you do Lite in the trim it can also touch the paint previously coated with Lite. I’ve never used Lite at all,...
