    Re: 2014 Corvette PlatstiDip Project

    You and Scott have waayy more experience doing this than I do, and I have not painted my wheels yet, but wondering if it would be easier if they were horizontal (like in the 2nd pic), and maybe on a...
  2. Re: Seriously? How do some people call themselves detailers?

    Have her check with the company that is doing the work that caused the issue. We had something similar at my office, and the painter picked up the cost of the overspray removal. I got 2 jobs out of...

    Re: Adams new Graphene. Anyone try?

    Well then, welcome to the sandbar! Glad this recent storm was a non-event, but be sure you have your hurricane supplies ready for the next one.

    Re: 2010 Porsche Black - Suggestions

    Plan to do a lot of polishing with your small pad machine. Those Porsche curves can cause lots of pad stall with larger pads.
  5. Re: Suggestions of tools polishing Narrow area (pillars, trims, bumpers...)

    The random orbit of the pad will keep it from burn thru or holograms, even when using just the pad edge.

    You don't say which DA you are using, but if it is a Porter Cable/GG type machine pick up a...
  6. Re: Instagram - Who is on Instagram? If not, why not?

    As I am not a full time detailer, my IG posts are not all detailing - some family, and lots of food!

    Re: Happy Birthday Aaryn NZ!

    Well since you live in Tomorrowland, I guess this technically Happy belated Birthday! Hope you and your crew are well.
  8. Re: Suggestions of tools polishing Narrow area (pillars, trims, bumpers...)

    Not sold by AG, but check out Diavolo polishers. I have the 16v model, and use it mostly for headlights - paired with Rupes blue foam pads and Zephir coarse compond it works great. They also have...

    Re: Microfiber cutting pads

    When I spoke with Meguiars Mike P. at Detail Fest (several years ago), for tough areas he recommended 1 drop of D300 & 2 drops of M105. My son had a Civic with pewter colored paint that would not...

    Re: Waterless Wash Experiment

    Why not do a rinseless wash instead? Washing a "clean" car should take about 15 minutes, and can be done with 2 buckets & a wash mitt or 1 bucket with several soaked towels. It puts more water on...

    Re: Really Stubborn Bug Guts

    And for a less 'blue' option there is Tracwrap, Track Armour, and TrakkTape temporary CLEAR paint protection films. There is also a roll-on version, but figured that is not something this group...

    Re: Really Stubborn Bug Guts

    As 'dennis b' pointed out the acid in the love bug bodies have etched INTO the paint. Once it gets that far, there is no removing them - only smoothing them over. The only complete solution is a...
  13. Re: The SECRET to Wet Wash Engine Detailing by Mike Phillips

    Exactly, just spray the foam on the blanket. And I would use a terry towel, not a MF towel to remove the excess.

    Re: Really Stubborn Bug Guts

    It is very possible they are etched into the paint. I have that on my black Frontier, from before I joined this forum. They are very smooth, after being polished several times, but they are still...

    Re: Dealing with Dust on "Garage Queen"

    I would also suggest a thin cover, but with one addition - get two microfiber sheets, sew them together, and use that as your 'base' and put the cover over them. The MF sheets help the cover from...
  17. Re: The SECRET to Wet Wash Engine Detailing by Mike Phillips

    Nice work!



    I have found a foaming tire dressing can work on those. The foam lifts the dirt out, and the dressing darkens it a little. Just lightly wipe off any excess.
  18. Re: When to stop buffing - Or - How far should you go to remove swirls and scratches?

    My guess - they can be mostly removed, but some of the ones that are parallel to the rear window are too deep. Looks like damage from a purse to me.
  19. Re: Pulling out at Green Peter Reservoir circa 2001 - 1970 Sanger Drag Boat 1969 Chevy Blazer CST 4x4

    Did you have that truck when you moved to Stuart? I think you had something large and red and General Motors at Detail Fest many years ago, but was not sure it was the same truck.

    Re: Crows Feet - Lacquer Cracking - Paint Checking

    Thanks for the update Mike!

    I have these on my 2000 Frontier. They seem to get worse after polishing, so IMO it is the heat of the polishing that makes them worse. The front quarter panel that...

    Re: Porsche Paint Checking, Solution?

    I have these on my 2000 Frontier. Sadly they are under the clearcoat, so no way to fix them from the top. They seem to get worse after polishing, so I think it is the heat of the polishing that...
  23. Re: How would you clean these? -The Rubber on Running Boards

    I'm with you Dr.
    The cars with running boards I work on are pre 1930, so I rarely anything stronger than ONR. Maybe some 10:1 APR on both sides of the tires, but ONR for the wooden or wire...
  24. Re: Can you help How to remove mold from car interior

    If you are looking to wipe off the surface mold, try diluted distilled white vinegar. And borax on the carpets once you finish help keep the mold down. And like the others said, use a couple pairs...
