    Re: IronX not doing anything | defective???

    I don’t think I’ve ever heard a success story regarding a coating vs. bonded contaminants.

    Forensic Detailing once got the microscope out in order to examine the effects that the claybar has on the paint. I can’t completely remember what his conclusion was because it’s been a while, but I...

    1st time I’ve seen that drawing or anything like that representing iron deposits on paint. I personally find that theory hard to believe simply based on the fact that synthetic clay can in fact...

    I love claying too.

    And you say there was a ton of contaminants removed from your hood yesterday with the claybar? What kind of protection did you apply just after the last time you clayed it...

    Wow that’s somewhat surprising to hear. Honestly the way that machine slow starts really reminds me of a Rupes, but I thought I’d sound kinda foolish to mention it in the same sentence… But hearing...

    All contaminants including Iron particles are above the clearcoat aka above surface contaminants. The only thing that’s ever “below surface” are defects such as scratches. If contaminants such as...

    I like my SK Mini too. It’s a big step up from using the HF DA as a 3” polisher. I love the slow start and the overall smoothness.

    Re: Lake Country HDO/CCS

    I agree. I’ve actually blown up a few LC Flats on my Mini Swirl Killer. The little Boss Pads seem to really benefit from the center cooling chamber. Plus I like the tapered edge.
