    Re: Black plastic trim

    Yes to the pilllars. And do your headlights & taillights while you're at it.

    Also I'll add here that whatever trim (etc.) you are coating, proper surface prep beforehand is key to getting the...

    Re: Advice on drying towels needed!

    There you go. AG usually has a couple big MF sales per year. Or another way to snag a good deal on a PFM is to buy one of the ones in the AG Outlet store (ie. already discounted) the next time AG...

    Re: Advice on drying towels needed!

    Hmmm, that's interesting. I use the "matador" method with a PFM to dry the hood, roof, deck lid of our vehicles and I've never noticed any "grabbiness". You would think that that drying method...

  6. Re: Taping off for polishing - Picking up glue

    Totally makes sense and is akin to how you would tackle painting a room, for example ... cut in all the trim, etc. with a brush, then bring out the roller for the big stuff.
  7. Re: Rag Company Dry Me A River not drying anymore...

    Tariffs. And the last few years brought more of them than ever, paid for by you and me. I read a recent article that estimated that tariffs added an additional $25-30K in lumber costs to the price...
  8. Re: Rag Company Dry Me A River not drying anymore...

    I have been wondering whether borax might be another effective booster to add in when doing MF laundry. Borax is known to boost the cleaning power of detergents, plus borax, when combined with...
  9. Re: Taping off for polishing - Picking up glue

    Here's how I do it ...

    Take piece of tape and turn it upside down, with adhesive side up. I then slide the leading edge of the tape under the piece of trim, then fold the tape up and back over...

    There's lots of "old school" products around that still hold their own pretty well against the new kids on the block. One of the biggest, if not main, "feature", of the newer products is their...

    Yes, you can apply the BF One Step by hand ... that's one of the reasons I suggested it as you had previously stated you were working by hand. BF One Step is neat because you can dial up or down its...

    If you just want to apply a straight-up sealant, try one of these :

    Duragloss Total Performance Polish (TPP) # 105 + Duragloss Polish Bonding Agent (PBA) #601

    (Mix 4 parts #105 to 1 part #601...
  18. Re: Buy enough towels to make a DEDICATED small wash load

    Exactly.

    But if buying new, then Speed Queen (as you suggested) is definitely the way to go. If the wife objects, consider a different one ... wife, that is. :laughing:

    Re: What's in your backyard?

    Years and years ago, I used to buy tame rabbits (fully-dressed) for a $1.50 each from a good ol' boy who worked in the factory. Rabbit is super delicious no matter how you cook it !

  23. Re: Restoration of 1973 AMX Pierre Cardin Edition.

    I was just going to ask him if that was what he did, it's far and away still the best method on stainless and also fine for aluminum as long as you take appropriate cautions (ie. it's soft).

    I agree with everyone else on using the Solution Finish. Unfortunately, that will only work for your black trim (although they also make a gray version).
