  4. Re: Questions About Mike's Favorite Green MF Towels

    I've seen a few of these in the garage and I agree, very thin and for my style of detailing and teaching, they are of no use.

    Other's may like these or have a specific use for them, don't be too...
  5. Re: Questions About Mike's Favorite Green MF Towels

    No. Nothing like them.

    Let me put it like this,

    I'm very meticulous when I detail cars, when I teach car detailing and when I make public recommendations for people I don't know, will never...
  6. Re: Moderate Boat Oxidation. Wetsand or Buff?

    See my reply to your thread.

    There’s 3 commonly used types of non-skid

    1: Molded-in = gel-coat

    2: Painted.

    3: Sundeck (could be wrong on this word, I don’t have my book in front of me)

    Good to hear.

    Suggestion - place a strip of tape through the middle of a section of paint where you can easily see Mick-marring and then just buff on one side.

    Allow the way to dry (wipes off...

    Re: Amateur hour help needed

    You don’t normally machine Compound molded-in non-skid for the 2 reasons you stated.

    In my boat classes I teach machine Scrubbing. You can use an APC or Marine 31 Mildew Remover or even Comet.

    Re: New Car Care Questions

    Normally you don’t put wax on plastic trim - even if it won’t stain it’s still not a good practice.

  12. Re: Do I need a special polish before applying a ceramic coating?

    Just to note to the OP

    You created 2 threads in different forum groups. I merged them together.

    No reason to create 2 threads for identical topics. It causes confusion.

  13. Re: 1987 Chevy 4x4 Monster Truck "Before & After" Pictures

    Actually, I sold it for a number of reasons.

    1: I don't normally like trucks this new. Prefer old school trucks before 1980.

  15. Re: Pinnacle Black Label Coating vs CQuartz Lite

    How long any product lasts comes down to how you "touch" the car. I type about this a lot. Just explained this to a guy that messaged me about painting a car with PPG Ceramiclear paint. Sounds...
  16. Re: Do I need a special polish before applying a ceramic coating?

  18. Re: Review: RUPES Mark III BigFoot 21 Polisher by Mike Phillips

    I never go that deep. At some point, I, we, need to trust the Engineers that create all these tools and simply rely on their expertise.
