    Re: Why 5.5

    My 2 cents on the topic, with the full disclaimer I'm but a mere enthusiast, not a professional.

    As was mentioned earlier, I think the whole 5.5" conversion dates back to the Porter Cable days...

    Re: Tint adhesive removal

    I just posted something similar to this here and on the sister site. Helpful folks chimed in with recommendations for: Tar-x (or other tar remover), 3m adhesive remover, and mineral spirits. Also...
  4. PPE Question - Respirator Recommendations

    Wondering what folks are using for respirators - either the mask itself as well as the cartridges for it.

    Main use I'll be using it would be for Tornadoring interiors, so the chance of either fine...
  5. Re: Plastic bottle that has a built-in measuring chamber.

    You can also pick up a measuring add on on the AG site: Pro Blend Bottle Proportioner 32 oz.

    Yeah, I wasn't expecting it to be glamorous work, but in the end someone has to be able to do it. Was just curious if this was one where if you haven't done hundreds of cars it comes off like smoked...

    I'm sure you could use the polisher, I just wasn't super excited to run a machine near water plugged into the wall. :o

    Oh, nothing too crazy my friend. Just laziness + … thriftiness (cheap sounds so… cheap. :laughing: ) :D

  20. Re: Question about removing this dent on my rear wheel well.

    Thanks all for the input.

    Just to clarify on my original post, all of this is preparation for paint correction, not just applying an LSP. I'm in the camp where I wouldn't clay unless I'm...
