  1. Re: What is your current favorite waterless wash?

    Ech2O is my favorite these days all thought I did try the new one from Pinnacle Black Label and found it to be really good too. I did a review over in the product review area.

    Re: Yes, I bought a KIA

    From personal experience Chevy and Ford are the worst in this regard. Last year, before I bought my BMW, I looked at Mustang GT's as well. My local dealership had 2~3 GT's, one Bullitt, and a...

    Re: Yes, I bought a KIA

    The problem like Klasse pointed out is the results show INITIAL quality. That means there aren't any noticeable defects when the vehicle leaves the dealership and, I believe, for the first 90 days...

    Re: Major letdown

    You're not alone. I've been waiting a month for some pads I ordered from Autopia. My neighbors ordered a coating for me to apply on their car from Autopia as well and they've been waiting six weeks...
  5. Re: Meguiars ultimate fast finish before qwik wax

    Agree. The fast finish is supposedly a high durablity sealant. Qwik Wax is very short lived. I like it, but it's a sealant booster at best with only a couple weeks durability.



    This is a...

    Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    A little late to the party, but this is really strange. I've been coating all of my cars for 4~5 years now and never seen anything like that.

    Do we know how long the coating was on the car...

    Re: When coarse isn't enough

    How are you uploading the photos? To the gallery via a PC? If so they may be too large. I have to re-size every picture I upload into the gallery due to the size restrictions. This problem can be...

    Re: Questions about machine polishing

    Do long throw polishers require a different type of pad?

    I too am looking at upgrading my HF DA to the G15, but hadn't thought about my stock of LC Flat and Thin Pro pads not working. In my grand...

    Re: Soft clear coat?

    Even if the paint was very hard you could still get scratches and swirls from something like a duster. I even managed to lightly marr hard, black VW paint on my GTI once when I tried to lightly dust...

    Re: Adams UV Ceramic vs. CarPro CQuartz

    I have no experience with Adams products but I have used CQuartz UK on multiple cars, both v2 and V3. All of them naked.



    My findings too...though the sample size is WAY smaller. I've never...

    Re: What Happened To My Ceramic Coating?

    Elixr is CarPro's quick detail spray to go with their coatings. I don't think there would be any advantage from a protection standpoint to leaving the coating bare as it isn't designed to extend the...

    Re: My new favorite one step polish!

    What type of vehicle or paint did you work on? Do you think someone working with a non-forced rotation DA polisher would get the same results?
  13. Re: Can car wash shampoo be diluted to a rinseless wash?

    To take it one stop further, there are some products on the market like CarPro's Ech2O which can be diluted to be a rinsless wash, waterless wash, or quick detailer depending on the ratios. They are...

    Re: Does wax deteriorate under a sealant?

    That's kind of what I've found as well. Since I mostly use coatings I've been doing a full clay and polish detail of my vehicles around the 18~24 month point.

    Re: For the Klasse Pros - How to Wash

    For a sealant like the Klasse twins, Optimum Car Wash or Poorboys World Super Slick and Suds (NOT the one with wax it) will work well also. I've used both soaps quite a bit and have used the...

    Re: Cannot find isopropyl alcohol anywhere

    Another vote for Eraser or Gyeon Prep since I've actually used them.

    Since I bought my last bottle of Eraser, I think several other brands here on AG like Wolfgang, Blackfire, Poorboys World, IGL,...

    Re: Getting swirls out of black Toyota Tundra

    Have either of you tried working with a less aggressive pad/polish on a Toyota? Not trying to be argumentative, just curious.

    The only time I've ever had to use either a compound or an orange pad...

    Re: Getting swirls out of black Toyota Tundra

    If you paint is similar to the crimson paint on my wife's Highlander, the white Lake Country Pads and the Meguiars Ultimate Polish should be able to correct things quite nicely in one step. I used...
  19. Re: What is your "go to" clay product nowadays?

    I've been a traditional clay person for a long time. I tried the Nanoskin pads but had a bad experience with heavy marring, so I went back to clay. I really felt the clay did a better job anyway....
  20. Re: Which has better quality Mothers or Meguiars?

    I think this sums it up nicely.

    From my personal experience it has been a mixed bag and I've found other products from other brands I actually like better than both of these.

    The variety of...
  21. Re: Product Review: Pinnacle Black Label Waterless Wash & Protect

    There were two points I forgot to mention in the original post which might be of interest.

    1. For those who like the surface to be really slick, this product leaves the surface slicker than just...

    The salt and winter grime does reduce the sheeting on the lower doors for me too, but I've found it to be temporary. After a few good hand washes everything seems to return to normal.

    So very true. I'm not sure why I've never tried something like this before.

    My winter wheels are coated with CQuartz UK, but for my summer wheels which I'm able to wash frequently I see this as...
