    Re: Review: Griot's Garage G8 Headlight Sander

    Very wise Mike to mention "2" layers of Tape for this type of work. Unless you're going to mask with Gorilla Duct Tape, I once found out 1 tape layer is not adequate for protection of surrounding...
  2. Re: What consumer polish / wax / my first time with DA.. Firebird

    Generally, a D/A with finishing polishes, and compatible foam pads will amp shine, remove swirls, but will likely not be that effective at removing, or considerably lessen the effect of orange peel. ...

    I've had it diluted into a spray for months, zero problems. I keep all such products indoors.

    Re: Removing Old Pinstriping

    There are special rubber attachment wheels made from a rubber that can be attached to a cordless drill that work just fine for removing pinstripe without a risk of damage to the paint. You'd likely...

    Re: Dent repair?

    Paintless dent repair is very amazing. Sure wish something like this was available decades ago.

    I'd say if you value this vehicle, and you want the job done as best as possible, and if it's not...
  10. Re: Car Pro Dlux - still ok to use with this date on it

    One time I recall, and will share some basic info, I had a good amount of CQuartz UK left which was expired quite a bit.

    One opened and half gone, I think a 30ml, and another 50ml unopened. Used...

    Re: New motorcycle, what to use?

    With a bike, one thing that might be of great help would be an air compressor with a blower nozzle, that after washing, this will help remove water in the hard to reach areas.

    Re: Wheels off detailing

    I did a wheels off on my 88 year old Father's Silver 2005 VW Touareg about 2 months ago. Yeah, in Chicago, and it was not warm, 40's at most.

    While this SUV has less than 10K, the inner Barrels...

    Yep, there's lots of nasties out there. One would have to be Howard Hughes to avoid most of them.

    One real nasty bacterial bug is C. Difficile. This bug can live on surfaces for up to 6 months I...

    Re: New long throw upgrades????

    Has anyone heard Griots make mention of future replacements of the Boss Machines?

    That would be my question? Maybe there's a possibility there won't be any other machines coming?
  20. Re: DLUX on bare aluminum wheels getting water spots

    Ahh, I see.

    Maybe not important, but maybe it is. Was this a wash possibly at a coin op spray wash?

    I've seen coin op places do some funny things to vehicles over the years. That the water...
  21. Re: DLUX on bare aluminum wheels getting water spots

    You are correct on the directions. I just read them again. It states initial dry time 1-3 hours, and "full cure in 24 hours. "

    Still, out of habit from using CQuartz UK on Paint, for the few...

    Re: Dremel for headlight restoring/polishing?

    As I've found out once the hard way, most Dremel Tools are not that "heavy duty" to be subjected to hard use.

    As I mentioned earlier, polishing or sanding small parts, and under use load for short...

    Bare with me, as these are just some guesses.

    Re: Dremel for headlight restoring/polishing?

    Nano Ibrid. Nope. Run over to Harbor Freight, buy their cheapo DA, come back here for the needed plate, and pads. You'll have a better all around machine that will stomp the Ibrid.
