    Re: question regarding claying headlights

    Claying or a clay towel can cause marring. Try a polish with a polishing pad. That should clear it up.
  2. Re: Suggestions? Most durable paint sealant, thatís easy on-off?

    It must be something about those Suffolk County birds. Wolfgang DGPS is an easy on/easy off product and I do get some good durability out of it. Collinte 845 is another good one. Wolfgang Fuzion is a...

    Re: Customer Detail

    I thought about but I didnít pack it my tool totes. I had Wolfgang DPGS and 845. I also did an iron removal step and a clay bar step. I was amazed that the car had very little contamination on the...

    Re: Substitute for Meguiars NXT car wash?

    Good old Megs Gold Class Shampoo is an old favorite. It's yields a lot of great suds and it's nice and slippery.

    Re: ALL MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Congratulations. Oh what a feeling. One of the best birthday presents I ever received was the title to my truck. My wife made double payments for quite a few months and paid it off early.

    Re: Polishing after painting?

    I have heard a wide range of answers about the cure time for a clear coat. It depends on the manufacturer, the technique, temperature, relative humidity etc. Generally speaking, it takes 24-48 hours...

    Re: Detailing the car in the big city

    This is the same scenario I go through when I am on the road. A rinseless wash is the perfect solution. Get yourself a 5 gallon bucket with a grit guard and a gamma seal and a 3 gallon rinse bucket...

    Re: Removing Insects After/Wax

    Spray the area with Poorboys Bug Squash and also soak a portion of a towel with Bug Squash. Lay the towel on the bug guts for a few minutes and it will easily wipe away.

    Re: Dealer Car Service - Preventing Damage

    My dealer knows me by now and they know not to put my vehicles through their “courtesy” wash. There are still times when the vehicle comes back with dirt and grease smudges especially on the steering...

    Re: Anyone else coating tires?

    Good one. LA Totally Awesome from Dollar Tree does the same job at a lot less price. Dilute it 1:1. Some tires may take 3 or 4 scrubbings.
  14. Re: Are exterior trim products becoming obsolete to the ceramic spray waxes?

    I will continue to use Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant no matter how great the spray on coatings/treatments gets. WETS restores the richness of black vinyl and it takes a lot of rain storms to make it...
  15. Re: does anyone keep a jump starter in their vehicle(s)?

    I carry the GOOLOO Supersafe jump starter in the company car since I make some overnight trips. Fortunately I have never had to use it on my own car but I was able to help someone else. I also carry...
  16. Re: How many here are still using the Porter Cable DA?

    My Porter Cable was my first machine since I got serious about paint correction and I still use it. I have moved on to a Griots GG6 and then a Griots G9 but I still use the PC. I have a 3 inch...

    Re: Ultimate detailer set up

    No detail setup is complete without a full compliment of paper towels. Who needs quality microfiber when you have that?

    Re: Should I tip my detailer?

    If the owner of the company is doing the work then I would say no unless the results are over the top. If a young kid who works for the detailer is doing the work, then absolutely yes.

    Re: seal plastic trim after sealing paint?

    Definitely tape off the trim, apply your AIO, and then apply Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant. It brings back the richness in the black vinyl.

    Re: Ultimate Compound or Polishing Compound?

    Ultimate Compound is a solid product but I have noticed that it has a short working time. If your work it too much it is difficult to remove.

    Re: Diluting chemicals

    You have to use the -log to get a positive value for that part of the equation. The log(1/11) = -1.04139. The -log(1/11) = 1.04139.
    9 - 1.04139 = 7.95861.

    Re: Diluting chemicals

    The dilution ratio of some cleaners will also help you to reduce the pH and make it less alkaline. Most cleaners are alkaline since most stains are acidic. PH neutral is considered anything between...
  25. Re: Bug Guts Prevention Wax or Ceramic Coating

    Griots Bug Barricade is another good choice. You have to keep reapplying it.
