    Re: Major letdown

    They will ship your other items if you ask. They are pretty good about that.

    I agree though that you shouldn't have to ask. It should just happen.

    Re: Major letdown

    This happens on almost all of my orders. In fact it just happened for an order I placed on the sister site.

    Time for some upgrades to the e-commerce platform. It's really not acceptable to not...

    Re: De Lamination or Scuff Marks?

    Scuff marks without any doubt.

    I mean look at the evidence. Driver clearly drives on curbs based on the amount of damage on that rim.
  4. Re: Meguiars ultimate fast finish before qwik wax

    If you are going to use multiple protection products you typically put the more durable one on first. So your plan to use Fast Finish first is consistent with that.

    Re: Carpro Essense Plus

    This stuff is bottled in someone's kitchen in Korea so it's possible they change the formula from time to time. They do small runs at a time. The guy flys this stuff over in his luggage.

    If you use old school products over sio2 products you cover up the benefits of the sio2 based products (hydrophobic beading and self-cleaning ability primarily).

    There a thread on the forum where he discusses it. Do a search.

    IIRC he prefers the 6.5" Lake Country Hybrid Force.

    Orange for cutting and white for polishing. Maybe a black or red for...

    Re: Flex 3401 problems

    I agree that doesn't make sense with 25 hours on the unit. I was just commenting that the tools symptoms do not rule it out. But tool lifetime would.

    Re: Flex 3401 problems

    I don't see how that rules out the brushes.

    Take them out and see how much life is left in them. If they are almost gone you might have the experience you are describing.

    Re: The Truck Roof

    I don't chase swirls or imperfections up there but I'll do a quick polish and seal it up with the same stuff as the rest of the paint.

    Re: Carpro Essense Plus

    Overcoat has great hydrophobics and durability for what it is, but does nothing for looks. And if anything I think it has a tendency to mute the glossy look of your work.

    Re: Review: BLACKFIRE Car Dryer

    Technically all blowers blow heated air as their motors heat up.

    Any one that is marketed as blowing heated air is just that - marketing. Unless it has a separate heating element.

  13. Re: LIVE Detailing Class: Super Car Prep 2020 C8 Corvette - BLACK

    Looks just like the black paint on my 2016 Cadillac ATS-V.

    The clear GM is using on their black paint is soft and sensitive.

    When the Jeep was new it was polished up and sealed with a ceramic coating. Even with a coating the Jeep was looking like it...

    Re: 2019 Tesla Model 3 - Deep Blue Metallic

    Thank you.

    I like the PXE. I have used the 3" Flex corded 12mm throw polisher and another brand that's basically the same thing.

    Those units are bigger and heavier. The PXE is very light...

  17. Re: Dilution products- distilled water or purified?

    That's probably just tap water run through a carbon filter. It will filter some things out of the water but will leave most of the TDS.

    I would ask them at the store what process they are using....
  18. Re: Dilution products- distilled water or purified?

    What are you defining as purified water? Distilled water is water purified by the process of distillation.

    Water purified by reverse osmosis often removes 99.x percent of TDS. While...

    Re: Seal n Shine

    Don't use 3D Speed if you are going to apply Seal N Shine. 3D Speed has wax in it that will negatively affect SNS ability to bond to the paint.

    If you plan on polishing soon I'd do both polish...

    Re: Work from May

    Out of all those cars this one stands out to me. Nice contrast between the wheels/body color/red calipers.

    Excellent job on all them!
