    Re: Window tinting question

    Windshield tint is illegal in MN, so I haven’t been in a lot of cars that have it (I do car fixing for a living, so I’m in quite a few cars a year); the ones that I have been in it’s not uncommon for...
  2. Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    Re: Griot's coming with more new towels

    So, after looking back at the site, looks like the Brilliant Finish cannon is more entry level. Electroplated aluminum manifold vs the all stainless of the BOSS cannon, plus it doesn`t have the auto...

    Re: Did I burn through the clearcoat?

    I agree with IH8SPM - that definitely looks like it's been repainted. Aftermarket clear can be much softer than what the car came with.

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