    Thank you all! Folex and scrubbing did the most on the upholstery, then the extractor with the massive carpet attachment did help! On the carpet I used Folex, lots of scrubbing and the Tornado. The...

    Now, I'll admit, I was enjoying the weather and never really rushed, but as much as I do, there is no way that it would ever take me close to 4 hours! The wheel wells, wheels and tires took me a...

    Overworking a job

    Lately my detail jobs, no paint correction, have turned into 8 plus hour deals. Yesterday I detailed a Ford Ranger for a total of 10 hours and made $175! It was a gorgeous day, so I enjoyed myself,...

    Do you test wax/sealant longevity?

    This question has been on my mind for a while.

    Re: Tornador question

    I just bought a Tornado Black and have a 13 gal 6.7 cfm 3.5 HP compressor. One thing to note, make sure that you have good tight fittings, as a leaky fit causes way too much air loss and the Tornado...
