  1. Re: Tesla Paint is interesting. What is your take on it?

    It is weird paint. Even though my job was to treat the paint with a one step. I did test out the paint with a two step approach.

    I used Hyper Compound to cut on a RUPES yellow foam pad. It was TOO...

    Re: Recommended clay substitute?

    +1 for the Optimum Clay Towel.

    I was using a Nanskin Mitt and that worked great.

    Truly any clay alternative will function similarly.

  3. Re: slight "grittyness" on paint of just acquired '93 fleetwood

    Claying will remove above surface contaminations that traditional washing won’t remove. It will also create a smooth touch of the paint.

    Additionally, as mentioned, an iron remover can also...

  5. Re: Bad application of CarPro CQuartz UK 3.0 ceramic coating. Advise needed! Thx

    On my old car. I had once left a high spot to experiment with it. To monitor it.

    For this particular ceramic coating (AG does not sell it) I was told that after some time that the high spot would...
  6. Tesla Paint is interesting. What is your take on it?

    I used a fine polish, but not an ultra fine polish if that makes any sense.

    Yes, I did try to one step it.

    Re: Portable Air compressor

    I recently bought a Rolair VT25BIG air compressor to run my tornador black. It was a leap of faith. But it performs better than anticipated.

    It cranks 6.5CFM @90PSI

    Loads up fast and keeps up...
  8. Re: Tesla Paint is interesting. What is your take on it?

    INTERESTING.

    I would say that the Tesla I had yesterday was more hammered than that. But all in all, that looks great.

    How many passes? Which pad specifically?

  9. Re: Tesla Paint is interesting. What is your take on it?

    I typically am a fan of CARPRO Clearcut & Essence. No longer in my stock currently.

    All in all, no problems on black Tesla paint?

  10. Tesla Paint is interesting. What is your take on it?

    For the second time as a professional detailer, I felt defeated. I didn’t take pictures. But for the record the paint was HAMMERED with bush brushing on the sides etc...and it still is hammered. Just...

    Re: Scratching or?

    After watching the video:

    The first thing that came to mind is possibly the fact that polishing oils are still existing on the paint.

    Typically I wash my brand new towels also. But have also...

    I need to double check. This includes coatings as well? Or is that different?

  14. Dumb question about Rupes foam pad prep - how often?

    RUPES pad priming for the BLUE, GREEN, and UHS PADS.

    Every single time you place a FRESH pad of choice from either BLUE, GREEN, or UHS is when you will need to prime the pad.

    This is regardless...

    Re: Are you kidding me, dealer?!?

    Happened to my Subaru. They took a dry rag to the paint and swiped pollen across the paint. Even after my wife said, “My husband said not to wash it.”

  17. Re: Before I try it, how good is UHS at removing swirls and oxidation

    As mentioned above, keep in mind that it is Honda paint.

    I have been successfully at removing swirls with RUPES yellow pad. It is known to be more like RUPES universal pad. It terms of polish. I...

  19. Re: Ceramic Coated Gel-coat after 8 months on the water!

    This is excellent Mike!

    I have been thinking about getting back into boat detailing and have been wondering about how a ceramic coating will do on a boat.

    This is awesome!

    Re: Just Received My GG G9

    That’s pretty cool of Griot’s Garage to offer a program like this.

  24. Re: Favorite Pads & Size on the BigFoot LHR 21 Mark II ?

    It is about how to prime the UHS pads based on RUPES recommendation. Similar to priming RUPES blue pads.

    Place about 4-6 drops of product onto the pad. Then run the machine at a very low speed...
