    Re: Using Vinegar to remove water spots

    Good to know. Only takes a minute to spray a sealant on the panel though.

    Re: Using Vinegar to remove water spots

    My goto for water spots (and also salt stains on carpets) is full strength vinegar with 1 ounce of ONR mixed in a 32 ounce bottle. The ONR acts as a lubricant both to protect the surface and make it...
  3. Re: Dawn Dish Soap/Degreaser.... : "Including Greasy Car Rims"

    I tried something last week on a client's trashed wheels. I have a spray bottle of water mixed with about an ounce of Palmoline dish soap that I use to clean emblems on the cars. I tried to do 1...

    Re: Gas pedal cleaning

    Ok. Might give it a try then. I rarelly use that brush anymore, unless I am cleaning a microfiber cutting pad. Still have to try the soft brush and see how that goes.

    No interior detail booked...
  6. Re: Sponge or cloth app. pad when applying int. dressing

    I just use a microfiber towel. I probably use a lot more product doing this but I like the fact I can get pretty much anywhere with the towel where the applicator is more limited. I also use a...
  7. Re: Is Turtle Wax Rubbing Compound (Bottle Version) Really Aggressive?

    Turtle wax does make some good products. Their Ice Sealant for exemple is a great product. But their compounds unless they changed them recently have never been really good. If you have to buy...

    Re: Gas pedal cleaning

    My pad brush is full of compound and polish ;) I don't think it would do a good job. Also the shape of it would make it hard to work on the pedals... no?

    Re: Gas pedal cleaning

    Don't have any of those products unfortunatelly. I would be wary of putting a dressing on the pedals. Maybe I am just paranoid but even a water based dressing like Meg's hyperdressing would...

    Re: Gas pedal cleaning

    That is possible but it's always in the groves not the surface so I am pretty certain it's dirt.

    Re: Gas pedal cleaning

    I am using super clean diluted 5:1 right now for interiors (including the pedals). Either it's not cutting it or like Coleroad said it's because the brushes are too stiff and they can't get in the...

    Re: Gas pedal cleaning

    Ok, thanks I will give that a try. Tire Cleaners are usually just degreasers. Maybe it would do a better job than an APC. Will try both the brush and meg's non-acid wheel cleaner and see if it...

    Gas pedal cleaning

    Ok guys, I need your advice on this.

    I have come across a few gas pedals that refuse to get clean. I am curious about your process and products.

    Right now, I spray the pedal with either APC or...

    Re: Volkswagen Touareg

    Very nice presentation. Good mix of humour, information and process.

    To answer your question in the video; give Optimum Tire Coating a look. I have switched to it after running out of my...

    The weather channel here said that we will have a very weird summer. Basicaly one day will be good then the next one will be cold and wet. So far it's true. We are still having nights with lows of...

    Re: TORQ 10FX stopped working ? Wth!

    This is also true for Rupes. Canadians always gets shafted when it comes to detailiing products and tools. Not only are we paying twice what they sell for elsewhere, but trying to get support is...

    Re: TORQ 10FX stopped working ? Wth!

    Same thing happened to my Griot's Garage Boss G15. They told me to replace the brushes... I have been lazy about this, I still need to do it ;) Give it a try, might fix it for you.

    Re: Trizact 5000 availability

    The 5000 grit I am using now is sold at the bodyshop supply store I go to. Pretty expensive stuff, about 2$ for a 3 inch disk. I can't remember what I paid for my Meguiar's Unigrit disks I...
  20. Re: Optimum Opti-Bond still a relevant tire dressing?

    Ok, will give it a try next time I refill. At 3:1 I typically see browning melting off without even touching. So far I think that this product is really good for cleaning tires. I purchased P&S...
  21. Re: Optimum Opti-Bond still a relevant tire dressing?

    I have never used Tuf shine so I cannot compare. OTC is very easy to use. Just use a tire applicator and spread it. Takes about 30 seconds to do a tire. The hard part is always the prep,...

    Re: Electric pressure washer ?'s

    Pressure washers are the only way to wash cars ;) Safest and most efficient way to remove heavy dirt from the paint. I strongly suggest you get one.

    2100 PSI would do fine. Just make sure you...
  23. Re: Optimum Opti-Bond still a relevant tire dressing?

    I started using Optimum Tire Coating and so far I like it. I dream of a day where every client of mine decides to buy that upgrade ;)

    For my personal vehicles, coating is the only way for me.

    Mike sold me on the no handle on the polisher early on ;) I can see benefits of having one one. The D handle is probably good. It won't put pressure on the wrong area while working like the side...

    Re: Issues with Buff and Shine Pads

    Do you have a long throw machine or a regular DA? Buff&shine flatpads don't do well on long throws. On mine, the velcro kept failing and it was throwing the pads off the backplate as soon as I...
