    Excellent! As is typical coming from your garage.
  2. Re: Master Blaster MB-3CD vs 36V Leaf Blower ?

    I use a B&D BV6600 corded blower. It's variable speed with velocities from 140-250 mph. I can't find the CFM spec but I think it's in the 400 neighborhood. Cost right around $100.00.

    Re: Need some tips on older single stage.

    Based on this quoted portion of your post, I'd skip the #7 altogether. With the same amount of effort (maybe even less) I think you'd get better results using a good AIO.

    In my experience #7...

    Now that your business is history and you have a conventional job at least you can count on a regular and steady pay day. I went through the same thing when I was younger... And it worked out well...

    Re: Getting Clay out of PPF

    I edited my previous post and deleted the mineral spirits method after reading your last post where you said you're not trying any solvents.

    That's ok... the skewer method is the best anyways and...

    Re: Getting Clay out of PPF

    The skewer method is your best shot... I do it all the time - clay, polish, wax residues.

    Theoretically, and assuming everything else remains the same... Yes.

    It has always been a best practice of mine to use minimal pressure for the final passes of the final polishing step regardless...

    Re: Meguiar's M205 vs. M210

    The two are very similar with 210 being slightly finer. 205 always worked well for me but there are reports of it not finishing very well on soft paint. Personally, I never experienced that. The 210...

    Re: Review: 303 Graphene Nano Spray Coating

    I think the "thicker" feel is due to the rubbery, non-slick characteristic... It's not really all that weird - I know exactly what you're talking about. Either that or you and me are both weird LOL.

    Re: Layering?

    I think the biggest benefit to layering products is the psychological effect of feeling like you have done a "better" job.

    The reason I say that is because my primary measure of effectiveness...

    Re: single stage black lacquer correction

    It wasn't really called "single-stage" back in those days because there was really no other system in common use.

    The term "single-stage" came into usage once basecoat/clearcoat paint systems...

    Re: single stage black lacquer correction

    Single stage [acrylic] lacquer was applied to nearly every GM product made in the 1960s, 1970s, and into the 1980s. Ford and Chrysler used [alkyd/acrylic] enamel during that period.

    In addition to...

    Re: Meguiar's D115

    Got it! I remember that thread/post. I was reviewing my new Rupes Mille.

    I don't remember what I used for the waterless... It might have even been simply a wet towel.

    Re: Question about Megs pads

    The Meg's 5" Soft Buff pads (DFC5, DFP5, and DFF5) are actually about 5 1/2" diameter. They will work fine with a 5" backing plate.

    The pads have a 5" velcro backing and the foam has a radius...

    Sometimes un-mowed areas on a golf course are appropriate. They play into the strategy of how to play the hole.

    I used to use Meguiar's #3 Machine Glaze quite often on new paint jobs in my body shop days.

  22. Re: First ever DA(7424xp) need advice on specific project!

    Those scratches look pretty bad in the photos. If they can be removed, and I'm not sure they can, it's going to take a pretty aggressive process. The risk level of buffing through is also pretty...

    I grew up in a suburban area where the front yards crossed property lines between the driveways. It never made sense to me why someone would mow their front yard and leave a 5 or 6 foot strip...
