    Re: My G 9 is real fine

    I've also been really happy with mine.

    I'm with UncleDavy - plenty of power, nice and smooth. I can see where being a lefty would be a downer with the trigger lock though.

    I like how...

    Re: Guidence on windshield pitting...

    Just curious - are you sure the “pits” are actually into the glass and not just particles on the outside of the glass?

    I ask because I’ve had race cars at the shop where the roll cage was welded...

    Re: Carpro Clarify - initial review

    Haven’t had a chance to try it out yet with a critical eye. I feel like at some point in the past I tried it with the Zap like towels I got from Griots forever ago, but it’s been long enough that I...

    Boy, that's a tough question though. When I was young, working on cars was all I wanted to do for a living. Thankfully, (by all...

    Just to clarify - you're looking to do a whole car with a compact 3" polisher? :wowwow:

    Re: Carpro Clarify - initial review

    So that's 6 or 12 oz of IPA mixed with 114/h20 at 1:128? Just checking.

    This cleans better than just using a stiffer mixture of 114? (Though I get the notion of not wanting to burn through your...

    Re: Carpro Clarify - initial review

    I've often wondered if folks have tried "doping" their window cleaner by adding IPA. How much do you add?



    Next time I do glass I'll give it a go trying a couple different glass cleaners and my...

    Re: Carpro Clarify - initial review

    One factor I watch when trying a glass cleaner is if, as you're cleaning the glass, you can see smears and streaks while the glass is "wet" that go away when you wipe off. But if you re-wet the...

  11. Re: How to clean up light brown stain on alloy wheels?

    Yeah, IMO I think you're running into non-metallic contaminants. Iron X is PH neutral and designed to target ferrous particles.

    The foaming surface prep works so well on grime because it's more...
  12. Re: Suggestions? Most durable paint sealant, thatís easy on-off?

    I would second the Griot's 3 in 1. Not sure you can say it'll last a year, but it's so easy to apply and factoring in it's price that I don't think that's a big negative.

    I put it on my car last...
  13. Re: How to clean up light brown stain on alloy wheels?

    Just spitballing here - are you sure that staining wasn't there when you started?

    Not only do wheels get covered in iron from brake dust, but they also get road grime and whatever other...
  14. Re: Help detailing neglected BMW Z4? New guy starting from scratch

    Looks good!

    I think one of the biggest things you'll appreciate is how much easier they are to clean up when you have a good LSP on there. So much less time/effort to get them clean during a wash.
  15. Re: Plastic Gauge Cover sctrach and smudge repair

    Good grief. Any idea what they used on it?

    I believe Eldorado2K has used Mother's Mag and Aluminum Polish of all things, but a quick search and I can't locate a thread to confirm. Hopefully he'll...
  16. Re: Removing polish with wax and/or sealant

    This was where my brain first went. You take an all in one designed to leave something behind, then add extra something behind it.

    With a polish, unless it’s in the ad copy, I wouldn’t think it...
  17. Re: Garage Lighting - Looking for recommendations

    Do most go with 5000k color temp? Inside the house I tend to stick with warmer bulbs (not a fan of the sterile feel with super white light inside), but if the higher K is beneficial in the shop than...

    Re: How to remove tree sap

    I don't know I'd go that route - I've read/heard about people damaging clearcoat by using too high an alcohol content.

    You could try a (premade) paint prep spray as well and see if that works.

    I’d be willing to put money down that it never looked that good brand new! Another one knocked well out of the park.

    Garage floor looks great too. :) How is it working in there?

  20. Re: Curious problem, white specks all over one half of the car?

    In the How To Remove Tree Sap thread that's also going right now, dcjredline mentioned using a heat gun to soften the spots before removal.

    Seems like it might be worth trying since you'd run...

    Re: Transportable Cordless Polisher

    I've seen a lot of positive feedback for the PXE 80, but again for the sounds of the scale of your job it's like using a palm sander to refinish a hardwood floor.

    Iíll be up front and say I donít have any experience outside of corded polishers. But:

  24. Re: A novice comparo test - 4x Griot's, Sonax, FK

    Thanks for sharing! I don't know that I'd use what's left of the mix I did; even though it mostly re-blends when you shake it, you can still see little bits of "solids" clinging to the sides. If it...
  25. A novice comparo test - 4x Griot's, Sonax, FK

    First off, let me take this opportunity to thank our members that deliver the really scientific comparison tests. This will not be one of those. :laughing:
