  1. Re: Need some advice on bird bomb and stain seats

    It's been a long time ago, but I don't think so.

    At least not in our cars. I only used water in the "clean" side of the machine and would use an upholstery product, APC, or fabric spot remover...
  2. Re: Suggestions for working with new VW paint?

    Yes, I was referring to both compound and polish. Even with the Meguiars Ultimate liquids you should be able to get more than 3~4 passes before it starts to dry up. I haven't used them in a while,...

    Re: Newby Asking for Polish Advice

    That was going to be my first comment and you beat me to it. The products we're talking about are all sold here anyway. The Amazon links are verboten by the TOU of the forum and will probably be...
  4. Re: Need some advice on bird bomb and stain seats

    I've used the Bissel Green Machine on cloth interiors before with good results. We bought ours a long time ago when there was only one model. Now there are several. For personal use they might be a...
  5. Re: Suggestions for working with new VW paint?

    I think there were a couple things going on from your description.

    You really need better polishes than the Meguiars Ultimate products. They are simply, OK, from my experience. Plenty of others...

    Re: Newby Asking for Polish Advice

    I've never had a problem with the sprayer itself, but it does make for a very messy method of application. It is hard to not get all over the polisher and over sprayed onto other stuff.

    Great...
  7. Re: Suggestions for working with new VW paint?

    I polished out a black metallic Porsche Cayenne once with paint which was harder than my VW. I got it done with a compound and Lake Country orange pads. It took forever and and it left enough...

    Re: Newby Asking for Polish Advice

    Like the others have said, Toyota paint is VERY soft. This makes it very easy to correct...but also easy to swirl if you aren't careful.

    I'm able to polish out our crimson Highlander using...
  9. Re: Suggestions for working with new VW paint?

    If you are going to use a Rupes Yellow pad, you'll want to go with a fairly aggressive polish/compound in order to make even a dent in the swirls.

    When I owned a black metallic Mk6 GTI, my go-to...

    Re: The Season of Discontent is upon us...

    I do pay attention to the interior a bit more, but washing is still a challenge. We've got a few days of 70-ish weather coming later this week, but sadly they will be weekdays and not the weekend. ...

    Re: 303 Graphene

    Between those two choices, the Griots are far and away the better products. Even if you can't find them locally, they are worth ordering and the slight wait.

    Re: CarPro Reset or Megs HyperWash?

    Not that I'm aware of. I've had a jug for over a year now and it still seems to be OK. It doesn't appear to go bad like Gold Class or some others do.

    Re: Paint protection advice

    If I understand you correctly, you just recently applied a good layer of Wolfgang DGPS and then topped it BSD a little later? How long ago was this?

    My vote is to leave the vehicle as-is and...

    Re: SEMA 2021/2022 New Products

    Totally agree. Most the products would stand or fall regardless of graphene in them. I'm all for going with a new product if it provides better performance or a proven advantage over others. At...

    I've found icy conditions are where the winter tires really make the difference. When you run a winter tire vs an all season on ice covered roads, the difference is quite noticeable. Many of the...

    Re: Scratches that turned out to be glue

    Not to mention some of the best driving cars on the road. I don't think I've ever been behind of the wheel of a Mazda and not like it, whether it was a car, SUV, or a Miata. The balance, steering...

    Re: Ceramic Coating Recommendations

    Great advice is the post, but I thought I'd add to this comment.

    CarPro may call Elixr a QD spray, but after going through a bottle I'm not sure I agree. It didn't seem to have much cleaning...

    Looks good. I had a similar situation many years ago when I purchased a new car. I told the dealership not to detail before delivery and was left with those glue marks all over the car. I too...

    Re: HYUNDIA SANTA CRUZ

    I had no idea the bed is so short. If it won't even carry a bike, the usability isn't very good.

    I bet you can buy one of those bed extension things that you mount with the tailgate down to...

    Re: HYUNDIA SANTA CRUZ

    It is a Tuscon with the back chopped off. It's a direct competitor to the Ridgeline, though a little smaller, and the in-bound Maverick.

    Re: Coating a White BMW X3 with Carpro SiC

    So, not even a haze? I assume then there is a little trial and error to figure out the timing when it can be removed without smearing yet not get too tacky?
