  1. New Flex PXE 80 Cordless polisher review on Youtube

    Just so that everybody knows, the Forensic Detailing Channel on Youtube just released a video on the newly released Flex PXE80 cordless mini polisher. He does a pretty thorough review, going through...
  2. Sticky: Re: Mike and Nick's Excellent Flex Adventure! - Going to Germany!

  3. Re: Lake Country Force Hybrid or Lake Country Hybrid Power Finish pads for FLEX 3401?

    The 5” pads were discontinued in late 2015/early 20016. You may have a chance to find some at the vendors who used to sell them, like Autogeek, if they have any old stock left. That would be your...

    Re: Foam Pad Storage

    You can store them anywhere you want, any way you want, as long as they don't get dirt or dust on them (that will ruin your day next time you use them). Putting them into Rubbermade/Sterilite plastic...

    Re: FLEX Hybrid Polishers?

    In my mind, a definite missed opportunity. I am wondering if Flex is going to be puttting the brushless motors into the corded versions of the 3401, PE14-2, and PE8 when they revise them.

    Forget to my experience polishing wheels, as background:

    Re: Uncoated Aluminum wheel restoration

    Just as a suggestion: try Flitz's Pre Cleaner for aluminum. I don't know if it is acidic or basic, but it does do a great job on aluminum oxidation, and it is a chemical, not an abrasive. If that...

    Re: Rupes lhr19e (rotary) thread size?

    North American polishers are usually 5/8", European standard is M14 (14mm), The PE14-2 is 5/8" shaft (I own one, and can say that with certainty). When John from Forensics Detailing on Youtube...

    Re: i am disappointed from my 21 MK2

    So the inference being anybody that buys a Mille, or LHR19 is now automatically goes from being a great detailer to a mediocre detailer, I take it. You know, people like Remy Doyle, Junkman 2000, the...

    Re: i am disappointed from my 21 MK2

    It is incorrect to say "...The smoothness and correction ability of a long throw is undeniable.....", because there are other long throw polisher that will not be as smooth as the Rupes polishers....
  13. Re: What the best choice, rupes 15 II or flex xfe-15 with 5' backing plate?

    The Forensic Detailing channel did a very comprehensive head to head (to head if the DAS 6 Pro Plus is included) comparison between the polishers. Brought up a lot of good points about all of the...

    The assumption is that the paint will be afterwards be machine polished by the pro, so that the marring left behind by the aggressive clay bar will be eliminated by the machine polishing.

  16. Re: Why doesn't anyone make buffing pads that are curved/concave to the surface of the panels?

    it is impossible to know how much curvature to mold the pad to. as different cars have different curvatures, or, in many cases, different panels on the same car have different curvatures. 7" pads are...

    Would you rather Flex released a 3401 replacement that has issues? Flex has shown off XCE Prototypes the last couple of years, so you know they are working on it. Look what happened with the first...

    You are correct in the definition of charge cycles. In the context of the cordless polishers though, it is sort of a moot point. Anybody who buys one of these polishers will want to run them until...

    Re: Leaving Vegas LOADED!

    Are the two battery packs different sizes? The one near the PE14-2 looks smaller than the one near the XFE7; is it possibly a perspective difference from the camera?
