  1. Re: Wheel Woolies Users - What size do you use most?

    I use the large and medium the most. But it all depends on how much space you have between caliper and wheel barrel. If I could I'd use just the big one because it's faster but it doesn't fit, I...

    Re: A little disappointed in my coating

    Honeydew is not a bad soap, it foams great and smells really nice. But it does seem to impact the behavior on coatings. I used that soap in the past and when I switches to coatings that was...

    Re: A little disappointed in my coating

    Honeydew has gloss enhancers and will mask the properties of the coating. Switch to Reset.

    Also, you’re not using Bead Maker as drying aid, are you? That would explain the dust magnet behavior...

    Re: Meg MF Pad Sizes

    Rupes does similar stuff. They sell it by face size in their case, so you have to end up buying a larger size that will have the right size on the back of the pad.

    Re: First time for CQuartz.....

    If it’s textured plastic I would use DLUX instead. For smooth plastic or trim, UK 3.0.

    Re: Ceramic cost

    I'm also a big fan of Essence prior to coating with CQuartz. Such a nice polish, easy to spread around and wipes off w/o any effort.
  7. Re: Why I Love McKee's 37 SiO2 Enhanced Tire Shine

    I would also rank Perl the same as the gel for durability. If it doesn't get wet, it's good for about 10 days or so. If you get a good rain, it's pretty much gone.

    None a big issue for me, I...
  8. Re: Why I Love McKee's 37 SiO2 Enhanced Tire Shine

    I can only compare it to Perl or the other Gel tire dressing from McKee's. The SiO2 tire dressing does last a bit longer than the other 2. But to be honest, after using the SiO2 tire dressing for...

    Re: LC orange pads losing stiffness?

    Send Lake Country a message. I once had some issues and not only did they replace my pads, they threw in a couple extra pads in the same package. Very customer friendly.
  10. Re: Window of Time - How long to wait after applying a coating, wax or sealant before....

    The coronavirus has allowed me to have a huge window on my last coating. I finished applying it to my car exactly one month ago. The car hasn't seen any rain or been washed since. A whole month...
  11. Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    Obviously no one here has used the new G15 but it will probably be a nice polisher. I have the old G15 and I have a G8. I'm really happy with that combo. The new G15 is about $100 less than the...
  12. Re: Griot's Garage G15/G21 Long-Throw Orbital Polisher *Ground-Up Redesign*

    If you get the G15 I'd say you still need a smaller/short throw polisher for other duties. If you're keeping your GG6 and converting it to a 3" polisher then I'd say the G15 is a better choice for...

    Re: LC orange pads losing stiffness?

    Yeah, it will always get hotter in the center, that's why some pads have a hole there, to allow for additional cooling. That's also why the center is where they collapse first and feel soft there,...

    Re: LC orange pads losing stiffness?

    Only if it's a microfiber pad. Foam pads don't require priming. When I started I used to prime. After having a few pads fail I researched more and learned that too much product on the pad is bad. ...

    Re: LC orange pads losing stiffness?

    I would bet on the pads were too wet and got too hot during usage and damaged the structural integrity of the foam. That's why you go through more pads and use them for less time, to avoid...

    Re: What happened to Mckee's?

    McKee's coatings have no shelf life. A few months at best. At least for the paint coating but I've heard the headlight one is the same. Glass coating should be good for over a year if you sealed...
  17. Re: Orange Peel remained after denim pad use

    Removing orange peel on factory paint can lead to disaster and require a re-spray. There’s very little clear coat to attempt leveling it and still expect it to last.

    I think you’d need a more...
  18. Re: Waterspots still here after compounding... Help!

    I had a similar situation not too long ago. Orange pad, even with Fast Correcting Cream didn’t remove. Switching to micro fiber pad and using same compound took it right out. I have used both...

    Re: What Side?

    Is this a clay mitt? If so, then it’s the rubber like side that will touch the surface to pull contaminants.

    If that’s a regular wash mitt then there shouldn’t be a side that looks or feels like...
  20. Re: Experts, please advise on this paint condition

    If it's just dried product on the paint, a good wash will remove it. If it's hard to come off then use some detailing clay.
  21. Re: Experts, please advise on this paint condition

    It could be product that got stuck there because whoever polished it didn't tape the trim Trim also gets oxidized and faded with time so it could be a combination of all factors.

    This product is...

    Re: Paint transfer

    Clay might do it. If not a light polish should.
    Before I got into detailing I used a YT method that worked great. Sprayed WD40 and then lightly scrubbed with a magic eraser. Came right off. At...
  24. Re: Need guidance with which Griot’s products

    If you have swirls to remove, I find it very unlikely a finishing pad will do. You'll need at least a light polishing pad, depending on how hard the clear coat is, a medium cut polishing pad is...
  25. Re: Putting a 6" Backing Plate on a machine purchased with a 5" backing plate (Possible?)

    Keep in mind a bigger pad on that machine will make it stall more than it probably already does with the 5.5" pads so if your goal is to only use it for large, flat panels, you should be fine. If...
