    Re: Dealing with Dust on "Garage Queen"

    Bob's idea of the Griots Disposable Cover isn't a bad idea.
    Being plastic, dusts wont get through, fairly inexpensive if you bought a couple-few to have at times where you cannot perhaps remove the...

    Re: Dealing with Dust on "Garage Queen"

    The simplest no cost option would be to simply remove the vehicle when using your garage for shop projects.

    Something like say using an Air Compressor with Blower Attachment to then blow off...

    Re: Dealing with Dust on "Garage Queen"

    Not sure what you want us to tell you here? Might sound rude, but if looking for a cheap solution, go to any thrift shop, and go buy yourself 3 or 4 cheapo bed sheets, and cover the truck. There's...
  5. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    I'll try answering your last questions one by one.

    A rim Sealant-Protectant. WGDGPS 3.0 will work fine.

    Wheel and Tire Cleaner. Many like Meguiars All Purpose Cleaner. It is a concentrate...
  6. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    If residues, and removal of such are a major issue for you, then simply use the WOWA products I mention earlier on the paint on the entire vehicle.

    While they might not offer the last word on...
  7. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    Yes, WGDGPS 3.0 will leave powdery residues behind where not removed and can stain black textured trim.

    Not that this is unusual, or makes this somehow a bad product. Basically any wipe on and...
  8. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    I quick looked at this color, a very nice dark blue.

    I suggested previous products, and on dark colors, I'd probably have to give the nod to Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant 3.0 topped with...
  9. Re: Brand New Car, want a ceramic coating on it (I think). Which one?

    Some good points have been brought up by other members.

    Vehicle care varies dependent upon what part of the country one lives in. For those who experience harsh winters, vehicle care goes beyond...

    Re: Keeping cats off truck

    I have read that there are sprays that supposedly deter cats, but not sure how effective they work and for how long, particularly outdoors?

    I know cats are usually territorial, and have a small...
  11. Re: Brand New Car, want a ceramic coating on it (I think). Which one?

    "If", the paint is as good as you say, no swirls to be found (which is rare on a used buy) then yes, a coating could be applied without polishing, claying, iron removers and so forth. But are you...
  12. Re: Marks on front glass where rubber wipers sit. How to remove and keep from coming back?

    It's hard to place a life expectancy on wiper blades. I've seen blades that were some good years old on a garage kept vehicle in the Midwest that looked just like new.

    Then blades that were 3-5...
  13. Re: Marks on front glass where rubber wipers sit. How to remove and keep from coming back?

    Instead of Paint Thinner, try Alcohol. And a good glass cleaner is always a good thing to have. Sprayway, or Invisible Glass are good ones, easy to get, and are both safe for use on inside tinted...

    Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    That's about all I can conclude is well, what others have touched upon. The Water, Fabric Softener in the Towels, or a vehicle that was washed too soon before full coating cure.

    If it's the last...

    Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    Yes, a little bit of streaking, but what I'd call it was a light film and haze left everywhere on the paint, glass, and chrome. Of course the vehicle was rinsed fully, and then wiped down with a...

    Re: Coating experts: I need your opinions here

    Odd, that I myself also had a similar problem like this, and it was with CP Reset.

    And I initially thought the same thing too, thought I used a bit too much of Reset, and the second time I used...
  17. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    Honestly, I hope you don't see me as a fake for suggesting Sonax Polymer Net Shield as a worthy product, as I do have a brand new Can of it here, but in truth I have never used the product yet myself...
  18. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    I would say realistically for a daily driver that may not be garage kept, I estimate more accurately about 4-5 months good protection with Collinite #845, and about 6-7 months with #476 Collinite...
  19. Re: Getting a brand new car ; what should I use to protect it ??

    I'll concur with Paul above. Such products like the two Collinite products he mentions are very good, and can be an easier to apply protectant than some of the durable Coatings.

    There's no time...

    The 2-fold advantage of a durable coating is not only better and longer lasting protection, but less wear and tear on the owner!

    The initial cost outlay seems high for such, but is actually more...

    Re: Hazy gloss black interior trim

    That era of early 90's Dodge Trucks were essentially junk! They put a killer turbo diesel Motor in a crap truck. Basically not much in the way of aftermarket parts like spring kits, add ons, etc.

    Only other idea that pops into my mind, and it would be for areas that aren't commonly touched.

    You'll have insane gloss and shine, in fact it might be too much! Easy, relatively cheap versus a...

    Tough call.
    I take it that the picture you've shown in particular, is a grab hold on the side door with an integrated door latch, correct?

    If so, these areas which I'll assume are basically some...
