    Mike - that's an amazing amount of machines, pads, towels, and product. I can only imagine how many hours are involved packing and unpacking.

  10. Re: Montana Original Tri-Angle Boar's Hair Car Wash Brush

    Here's my take on this. I do not wash/detail for a living, just my vehicles and some friends/family, so take my comment with a grain of salt.

    Re: What Makes a Compound The Best?

    BSoares - thanks for the info. I have a sample of Correcting Cream so I'll give it a try. Sometimes I can cheat a bit with certain compounds ( like D300 and certain pads ) and get away with it.

    Re: What Makes a Compound The Best?

    Thanks for the video, Joe.

    thanks for the detailed response. And great idea with the velcro strips. that sure would speed up the process. I take it the final rinse in N914 doesn't leave residue in the pad?

  17. Re: The Importance and Value of Weekly Maintenance Customers

    I had the exact same thought as you but let me tell you why you should consider the larger tank ( 14' vs 10' ).
