    Re: Something better than aquapel?

    I use McKee's 37 Glass Coating on my vehicles. The price point was the same as Aquapel but with less hassle to put it on and a year of protection is hard to beat!

    Re: Pads Hotter Than Your Morning Cup of Coffee

    Well ok! Maybe I was being a little worried just because it's new for me to warm up a pad. My GG6 hardly changed the temp on the pads using them. My new 21mm can warm them up pretty good. So far in...

    That's where I'm at now with my Flats and CCS, I swap them out between section passes to let them cool. I do four passes a section with the 21mm.
