  1. Re: Struggling with Product Selection After Ceramic Coating

    Reset is actually not that pricy when you consider it's dillution ration. At 400:1, it's the same dillution as Hyperwash but it's a stronger soap. Compare that to most car soaps being 128:1 or...
  2. Re: Struggling with Product Selection After Ceramic Coating

    As others said, as long as there are no abrasives, a wax or sealant will not damage the coating.

    As for soaps, I am very surprised that IGL says only to use PH Neutral ones. One of the main...
  3. Re: Which shampoo to use for paint correction prep?

    Ok... I don't understand all those suggestions.

    The reason for using a PH neutral car soap is to protect the wax or sealant on the car.

    If you are gonna do paint correction, you want that wax...

    Re: 303 vs Hyper Dressing

    Ya, Hyperdressing is the superstar of the dressings IMO. It works amazing no matter what dilution you use it at and it's very inexpensive. I used to dilute it 4:1 but latelly I have upgraded it to...

    Re: Cleaning windows ... Is it just me?

    I always spray on microfiber when inside the car and sometimes spray on the window itself on the outside. Never noticed much difference. What does make a difference is the product you are using. ...
  10. Re: 1st time machine compounding, a bit disappointed

    So many things to say...

    First off, compounding is not gonna remove deep scratches. You are gonna need to wetsand to do that.

    Re: Can we cut the SiO2 coating nonsense out?

    Why? The coating give a great semi-permanent barrier of protection that no sealant or wax can offer.

    If you want to top it with a sealant, especially a SiO2 one, then you get the advantages of...

    Armor All supposedly changed their formula a few years back. It is true that Armor All used to dry out rubber and vinyl, I doubt it does anymore.

    Re: Can we cut the SiO2 coating nonsense out?

    No, the decon did not help. Of course you get hydrophobics back when you apply reload, but that comes from the sealant, not the coating.

    Cquatz is no good because you need to apply multiple...

    Re: Can we cut the SiO2 coating nonsense out?

    The claims on these products have to be taken with a grain of salt.

    First off, they are all semi-permanent, so they will stay on the paint until you remove them. On the other hand, maximum...

    Re: Turtle Wax Seal and Shine

    Reset is a degreaser soap from what I understand. The idea of that product is to strip anything that might be stuck to a ceramic coating. So if you use it on a sealant, I would expect it to damage...
  21. Re: 23 Year old car badge removal - Stubborn Glue

    Try to soak a paper towel with the product and slap it on the area where the glue is for 5 minutes. The paper towel will prevent the product from running off and/or evaporating away. It might make...

  23. Re: 23 Year old car badge removal - Stubborn Glue

    Glue will melt with many solvents. If you have tar remover that is solvent based, try that. Rapid remover is supposed to be amazing, but I have never tried it.

    I understand, it's just that the description you gave included all sealants.
