    Re: 1991 Chevy S-10 Pickup Truck

    That truck is amazing! Interior gives me fo d memories of my dad’s 1991-ish GMC Safari work van. You don’t see many vehicles like this around and it looks so glossy and pristine now.

    It must be...

    Re: Which Paint sealant for my truck

    And no CQ UK during any of this right?

    Lol, sorry I had that in my head. And you will really like WG SiO2 I think. It’s amazing but just won’t last as long as a coating lite like Cancoat.

    Re: Which Paint sealant for my truck

    Sorry, I was under the impression that UK3.0 would be on, then WG SiO2 Paint Sealant. Therefore I think WG SiO2 PS would be partially degraded after 4-5 months and then some strong cleaning (but no...

    Re: Which Paint sealant for my truck

    I think you would be OK using CanCoat in 4-6 months. WG will be weak by then. I wouldn’t polish, that’s going to remove your coating! Give it Reset wash for a few weeks prior or a coating prep wash...

    Re: Does AG have 30% off?

    Better beading/sheeting from Griots 3-1 for sure. Not sure on longevity but both are pretty decent from what I hear. I haven’t seen either live a full life though.

    Re: Does AG have 30% off?

    Do you recall when that 50% off sale was? I hit up the one before quarantine but hadn’t seen one since it started (for us in mid-March).
  8. Re: Been out the game for a while...but love me my Menz PowerLock. What helper spray wax goes well with it?

    Hot water wash (works for all my towels although some will say you shouldn’t) with your detergent. And next time using as an applicator, can you make a little bucket or dish and put hot water in it...
  9. Re: Review: Dr. Beasley's NSP Z1 - One Step Primer & Nanocoating with Ti02 & Si02 + Composite Engineered Abrasives

    Similar question: Hybrid Solutions Polish and Wax and Mckees 360 One Step are AIOs that leave behind ceramic sealants. Is this product in that same vein, or is it claiming more of a true coating...
  10. Re: Review: Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Ceramic Coating Pro

    Having installed my first, I plan on tossing the wipe off towels, even those that weren’t used much and have no hardness. Or best case maybe I’ll keep the lightly used ones as tire or wheel-well...
  11. Re: Review: Pinnacle Black Label Diamond Ceramic Coating Pro

    Nice way of explaining the light’s ability to show the truth, lol.

    And nice touch including the little Mike Phillips avatar on the top left of that photo. Just coincidence that you happened to be...

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Thanks, and yes! I first noticed I wasn’t happy with these panels on an overcast day. Lightly polished them, recoated and did the best I could to ensure smooth application with shade on a sunny day....

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    I did some rework on a partially sloppy coating attempt. 3 panels including the hood recoated with CQ UK due to smeary-looking finish (high spots) on black paint.

    What a difference proper...
  15. Re: Review: Pinnacle Black Label Compound, Polish and Diamond Surface Prep Spray

    I believe you can use the PBL polish as an equivalent alternative to Pinnacle Finishing Polish. It is PBL’s ‘finishing polish’, but probably has a bit more cut for when it’s needed. I have no doubt...
  16. Re: Review: Pinnacle Black Label Compound, Polish and Diamond Surface Prep Spray

    The Surface Cleansing Polish has no abrasives, so don’t expect even light scratches to be impacted or jeweling with a finishing pad (assuming I’m thinking correctly that jeweling would remove some...

    Yeah, in line with PaulMys, those sound like they’re fine if they don’t smell funky or look separated.

    Re: Coating Flash Times —- Confused

    I just checked my newly coated black Q5 in the sun and there are a few areas that appear lightly streaked. Most likely high spots that won’t come out. I regret thinking I could do this in my garage...

    I have a bad feeling I left too much “oily” coating residue during wipe off due to trying before the flash was fully dry. I was hoping the residue would self level but I can still see it with swirl...

    I think the bottles are metal but could be wrong. I definitely think the crappy plastic bottles impacted Mckees V2 shelf life.

    If this is the case and I don’t have to worry about the coating bonding and only concerned with ease of wipe off, them I’m a happy man.

    Re: Coating Flash Times —- Confused

    I worked up to 1.5 full panels ahead to let the stuff sit long enough. Knowing by that time that it wouldn’t be a problem to wipe off after 5-10 minutes.

    Re: Coating Flash Times —- Confused

    I now fear that certain sections/panels of mine were wiped off too soon (UK 2.0) because there was some oily residue after which did not easily go away after 1 or 2 wipes. Being my first coating I...

    P21s has a shiny, bright finish from what I remember (for a wax). But probably deeper, warmer still than Megs ULW I would think (full disclosure I haven’t used ULW much but have used M21 a lot and I...
