    Re: How to remove Aquapel

    When I used Aquapel I had success using paper towel at first (which left smearing/haze behind) and then finishing up with a microfiber towel. I think at that point the paper pulled the excess and...

    Are those shaggy seats just some covers or they came like that?

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I had the DWS before and although traction was great, the super soft side walls made me not like the tires at all. I had to add a lot more air in the tires to attempt making them feel normal again...

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I had new tires installed this week so during my wash today I spent about 1.5 hours just on them. Removed the nibs, cleaned first with Tarminator to remove lube and heavy blooming, then cleaned as...

    Re: Blackfire One Step Experience

    I think if you skip the priming part (2 circles around the pad spread with your finger) and go straight to the dots you'll be fine. You're starting with so much product that it just ends up...

    Re: Too Much Splatter

    I would skip the priming of a foam pad. Go straight with just the dots. Maybe on a fresh pad put one extra dot and carry on. Nickel size might be too big but I hear with All in Ones you want to go...

    Re: Too Much Splatter

    Sounds like your pad was too wet. Maybe too much product on the face of the pad.
    I'm assuming you only turned on/off and changed speed while the pad was flat on the surface. If it's lifting it...

    Re: Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant

    With a new car and trim in excellent condition I would use a coating instead of a sealant. That will last much longer and will keep the trim darker. Either Gyeon Trim or CarPro Dlux would be my...
  10. Re: Recurring haze on headlights of 2013 Subaru WRX STi

    That's coming back because the sealant doesn't offer enough UV protection. You'll have to either spray the headlight with clear coat or apply PPF over it after you polish it one last time. Then the...

    Re: Im out

    I haven't noticed much drama here lately. Maybe it's because I steer away from any thread that I know will be about Bead Maker :)
    I actually have noticed a lot of new people with beginners...
  12. Re: Using too much (wasting?) swirl remover product?

    When I first started I also used Wolfgang TSR. Great product. I went through almost 8oz to do 1 car and I know I used too much. I think somewhere between 4oz and 6oz should be plenty to do a...

    Re: Marred Ceramic coating

    18 months means you’re probably close to the end of life for that coating so might as well polish (which will remove marring and the coating) and then apply a new coating.

    Re: Are you kidding me, dealer?!?

    I will be getting new tires this coming week and I’m already in panic wondering if there will be any damage to my wheels. I will take pictures before. And probably not sleep well until after it’s...

    I like the red GTI sticker on the steering wheel. How hard was it to get that aligned?

    Re: Carpro vs Gtechniq

    If the bottle is still sealed I would just use it. The expiration date on CarPro products is something you can ignore.
  17. Re: Dark Blue 2018 Audi ... Sprinkler at lunch today ... water spots! ugh... help

    In my experience, MDR and CarPro Spotless both work but very little. Meaning don't expect miracles, for the most past only abrading the surround areas (polish/compound) will actually work. The rest...
  18. Re: VRP streaking/running, looking for alternatives

    McKee's 37 Trim Restorer or Wolfgang Exterior Trim Sealant. Both are pretty much the same and work great.
  19. Re: best car shampoo/foam soap for coated car,

    I'm a fan of CarPro Reset and use only that on both my cars (one coated with Gyeon Syncro and one with CQ UK3+Gliss2)

    For the enthusiast the price of Reset is not an issue. For a pro going...

    Re: Long Term Ceramic Coating Storage?

    I think all good coatings will harden in the bottle. If they don't how do they protect the car like they say they do?
    IMO the curing is inevitable and will happen, some will be faster, some will be...

    Wheels look good. For some reason that design makes them look smaller than stock though.

    Re: Did my first full detail with my G9

    I could swear I heard it had progressive trigger but now you said it doesn't. That's kinda disappointing since the Boss polishers do and I would expect them to use the same on this "baby Boss" DA.

    Re: Something better than aquapel?

    I replaced Aquapel with McKee’s 37 glass coating. Performance I’d say is the same but the coating lasts longer. I find the coating harder to remove from the glass, Aquapel wasn’t bad if you worked...

    So that restaurant needs more left handed customers to come visit and open the other door.

    Re: Exterior Plastics Detailer/Protection

    WETS and McKee's 37 Trim Restorer are either identical or very very close. I have both and really can't tell which one I'm using if you cover the label on the bottle.
