    Re: Did I waste time today with a LSP?

    1.) Unless the Wax Manufacturer would happen
    to state otherwise…Waxes don’t need to be
    applied on a squeaky clean surface. They’re not

    Re: Still struggle at times to get tires CLEAN

    your tires?
    -IMO: it is the best way to really deep
    clean tires.


    Get the below tools…and you’ll never
    go back to manually scrubbing...

  9. Re: Need advice cleaning trim to prep for coating.

    From here…
    It looks like Meg’s APC got it
    fairly clean.

    Now, to get it even cleaner:
    I’d follow-up with McKee's 37
    Wax Remover for Plastic.

  10. Re: Your favorite product to use as presoak for rinseless wash?

    Here’s my take:

    ONR Wash & Shine contains polymers
    (that are, more or less, specific to this
    Optimum product’s formulation) which,
    by forming a molecular bond to the
    surface: are then left...

    :welcome: back!

    It’s always FUN when you’re around. :props:


    McKee’s N-914 is the only RW/WW out
    there that I trust to function similarly as
    does/did Meguiar’s D114.
  16. Re: Need tips/ideas for applying tire shine to spare

    -The location:
    •Unless you remove the spare from its
    mounting, you’ll have to live with just
    dressing whatever is reachable, IMO.

    For your consideration:

    •I know for a fact that you’ll surely regret
    trying to polish out scratches by hand.

    Re: The right prep product for Profi

    •Paintwork Polish Enhancer, among other
