    Re: Tire Dressing Applicators?

    Thanks!

    Those brushes will work pretty well for our SUV, but unfortunately for my car with thinner sidewall performance tires like you see in DFB's pictures, I'll need something thinner. Might...
  2. Re: Another Newbie Question about Wolfgang SIO2 Paint Sealant

    I've used it twice. One vehicle received one layer, my car received two.

    The first vehicle wasn't mine, so I can't really say one coat was more/less durable than my car with two.

    From an...
  3. Re: Is Geek level cleaning worth it on white paint?

    This right here is your answer.

    I haven't/won't own a white car, but I used to question whether it was worth it too. Then I detailed a white pearl Genesis G90 and an Alpine White BMW 330. Both...
  4. Re: DP Tire Coating Fail - What'd I do wrong?

    This cannot be overstated. As I move from ownership of different goals, it's a guarantee I'll have different brands and types of tires. So far I don't think I've encountered any two tires which are...

    Re: Polish and Cermic coating suggestions

    I would also say there is a dramatic difference between polished out white and a white car that has been simply kept clean. In addition to the gloss, the actual color is different. Think fresh...
  6. Re: Will Wolfgang Ceramic Boost work with Wolfgang SIO2 Paint Sealant?

    It might, but I wouldn't recommend it for two reasons.

    1. It's not a very good product. I got a sample in an order a while ago and I found it really grabby and difficult to apply. Once applied...

    Re: Thank you Mike Phillips

    Well, this is interesting....

    Mike has/will be the person whose material I've always gone to when learning new skills and techniques in detailing. It was his YouTube videos on machine polishing...

    Re: Member location.

    I do find it helpful. For general conversations it isn't a big deal, but when getting specific about products or what will work in certain environments it is valuable. I feel bad when recommending...
  9. Re: BLACKFIRE Pro Ceramic Paint Coating Black Edition

    It is a product you can use on any color of paint. I think "Black Edition" was added to the name to indicate it is more "special" than the other coating. I think Mike Phillips has a review of it...

    Re: Tire Dressing Applicators?

    I'll toss out a really dumb question here; I'm still absorbing my morning coffee...

    When using the brushes do you spray the dressing on the brush or the tire. When using a foam applicator I spray...
  11. Re: just got off the phone with an xfinity cable tech

    At least you got it working.

    Years ago we had a nearby lightning strike which hit close enough to energize some of the cable company lines in the ground leading to our house. Cooked the modem and...

    Re: Tire Dressing Applicators?

    That brush you use here looks interesting. I think I'd like that better than the one I linked above. It would be much easier to hold and manipulate while applying a product.

    I've used the...

    Re: Megs APC stained windscreen.

    It doesn't look like it from the pictures, but the car doesn't have a heads-up display does it? Cars with that feature often have a coating on the inside of the glass to allow the HUD to work. Even...

    Re: Polish and Cermic coating suggestions

    I agree with the Rupes yellow pads. I've only got one in my inventory of pads to try out, but I make sure to rotate it in every time I work on a car.

    I've had great luck with the Griots BOSS...

    Re: Spray Sealant Water Behavior

    Depends I guess.

    To those of us here, yes, because it's more accurate. To the general shopping public, maybe not, because everyone has seen a "coating" add on their social media platform and...

    Re: Tire Dressing Applicators?

    I've seen you mention this before and the brush you use, but how would it work on a car with lower profile tires? Would the same brush work or would you need to go with something smaller like this: ...
  17. Re: WANTED: Vintage bottles of Pinnacle, DP, Blackfire etc.

    Are you still taking stuff? I know I've got a bottle or two of some previous generation Blackfire products and a container of XMT clay bar.
  18. Re: Tricks for getting glue/decal residue off glass?

    I use plastic razor blades (if needed) so it doesn't scratch the glass.

    I'll start with Goo Gone, and if that doesn't work I'll use Goof Off or Stoner's Tarminator.

    Re: Spray Sealant Water Behavior

    The way a traditional coating and a normal sealant bond to the paint are different.

    Coating used to mean the products which had a very high SiO2 and were made with carrier agents which evaporated...

    Not sure I've seen any interior surface protectant designed for use on carpet and fabric. They've always been for leather/vinyl/plastic/rubber. The AIO part means it cleans and protects at the same...

    I'm much more cynical when it comes to manufacturers and fully realize marketing and buzz-word names often take precedent over technical correctness. Just take a look at Wolfgang's Finishing Glaze....

    Re: Your favorite Car Wash Soap

    That isn't a bad price for a gallon. I should have done a better job of looking up US vs. Aussie prices before commenting. Interesting a 16oz bottle isn't very competitive compared to Optimum, but...

    Previously, I'd used the Mother's brush which looks similar to the Wheel Woolies tire brush, but was never...

    While a 2018 vehicle isn't that old and the stripes haven't been on there that long, Mike's comments match my experience with my daughter's car. The vehicle was about 8~9 years old when we bought it...

    Re: Your favorite Car Wash Soap

    It's extortionate in the US as well. Optimum Car Wash is $11.99 for 32oz / $30 for a gallon. Hyperwash is $35 for a gallon. I've always be curious about Adam's products, but the prices have kept...
