    Re: Review: Collinite No. 845 Insulator Wax

    In order to keep it from clogging up a sprayer, I'd think you'd have to keep it pretty warm the entire time you are working.

    I've applied it using a waxing pad and a DA. It's really fast/easy and...

    Re: Really Stubborn Bug Guts

    How easily would the Plasti-Dip come off the paint?

    I used Tack-Armor for a similar purpose and it was a failure. The stuff didn't stay on for very long, the edges pealed back and flapped in the...

    Re: Review: Collinite No. 845 Insulator Wax

    I used 845 for many years before I got hooked on coatings. It's a great sealant and really durable.

    I too experienced the "ghosting" or "hazing". From my experience it only happens in really...

    Re: Need advise---what should I get?

    I've used normal paint coatings on wheels with pretty good success. It won't last as long as when it's applied to paint due to a much more harsh environment, but it does the job.

    As for the...

    Let me be the first....

    Two Examples:

    - My GTI wore McKee's 37 Coating v1 for 24 months with no toppers. Worked great, but the properties were more like a wax than many of the other coatings. ...

    Re: IMO Best Looking Red out there now....

    Fantastic work!

    I am big fan of Mazdas. The Soul Red is an amazing color and the CX5 is the one of the only SUV's I'd seriously consider owning. Mazda seems to have a knack for building SUV's...

    Re: Remove wheels to coat W/ Gyeon Q2 rim?

    I'd go so far as to say the only way to do a good job even with the facing areas and spokes is to take them off the car. Like Guz said, if you want to do the barrels, and you should, you have to...
  8. Re: Basic question re Ceramic Coating vs Ceramic Spray Sealant

    A dedicated ceramic coating will last much longer with far less effort. It's not even close.

    I've coated my family vehicles with products ranging from one of the early McKee's 37 coatings, to...

    Re: Griots Ceramic speedshine

    Debate? Nah. I see debates as being opinionated and occasionally argumentative.

    I see this as a friendly conversation where people share experiences to educate each other and provide...
  10. Re: Every 90s kid is required to look at this detail!

    I'm glad you enjoy it and want to keep it running. I really admire it when anyone has a car 20+ years on the road and it looks new. Drive it in good health! I really feel bad about my comments...

    Re: Griots Ceramic speedshine

    How would you compare it to Ech2O? It's the safest WW I've tried, but that isn't saying much since I've only tried 1~2 others. I do like it however and have safely cleaned my black, pollen covered...
  12. Re: Every 90s kid is required to look at this detail!

    Great job, and that car is a time capsule.

    The first car I ever owned was a '93 Grand Am four door, 4-cylinder, with a manual transmission. Bought a used one in maroon my Senior year of...

    Re: Griots Ceramic speedshine

    This might be another area in the industry which is starting to blur lines between products and the labeling/naming isn't helping at all.

    CarPro claims Elixr is a QD spray too, but after using it...
  14. Re: Mini review: Griot's Garage Rubber Prep & Ceramic Speed Shine

    Very cool. Is this the smaller 22oz sprayer or the larger one (32oz?) like you get with their wheel cleaners? The way things are going shipping wise right now, they may have been sent at the same...

    Re: what is everyone using for salt removal?

    Uh, after 5pm in which time zone? I think that might be part of my problem in getting good results.
  16. Re: Is this steering wheel deteriorating or just really nasty? At which point do I stop scrubbing?

    My parents still own TWO of those minivans in various trims from that generation. For a short period of time I owned a Dodge Stratus built around the same time period which used most of the same...
  17. Re: Is this steering wheel deteriorating or just really nasty? At which point do I stop scrubbing?

    Agree. I think age of the vehicle is a factor here too. Even if the wheel is becoming cleaner, the factory coating on the wheel is probably failing too. That's a 90's vintage minivan by the looks...
  18. Re: Accidental discovery resulted in showroom-matte seats

    I've found a good application of a MILD dilution of an APC does wonders on leather. Especially heavily used leather touchpoints like the steering wheel and shift knob (if you have a manual).

    Re: what is everyone using for salt removal?

    Like many here my solution too is the touchless car wash. If the car is covered in salt, I'll wait for a day that is above/close to freezing and run it through a touchless car wash. If there is an...
  20. Re: Mini review: Griot's Garage Rubber Prep & Ceramic Speed Shine

    Thanks!

    The Speed Shine information is helpful. From my experience with other products, you need to be pretty careful with them due to how easy they streak. The fact you could apply it to panels...

    After experiencing the durability of a coating it would be hard to go back to a carnuaba wax or sealants in general. Not having to carefully plan out your LSP application schedule to ensure your...

    Same here. I have a collection of both Flat and Thin Pro LC pads. All I ever use are orange and white as they are the real work horses in the line. I have a blue I've never used and one black Flat...
  23. Re: Coating levelling - possible to remove too much?

    For future reference, if you use Eraser, there is no reason for the IPA. Eraser will easily remove all of the polishing oils and also has a little lubrication in it to prevent marring while you...

    Hmm. You're right! For some reason I thought the early generation of the SMG was an option.

    Spectacular job on an amazing car. It looks like it just rolled off the showroom floor!
