  1. Re: Talk me off the cliff (or encourage me to jump)

    Unfortunately, business models sure have changed for the worse over the years. It used to be that the best long-term customers got the best deals. Businesses wanted to take care of their loyal...

    Re: Detailing Garage Paint Color

    If I had a dedicated polishing room that was used for nothing but, I'd paint it a low-sheen black.

    Otherwise, if it was more of a multi-use area, I'd opt for a lighter nuetral color.

    Re: Distilled : Waterless/Rinseless

    Not necessarily Paul... Unless the filtered water is from a Reverse Osmosis system. Standard filters only remove sediment and chemicals from the water so while it is safe to drink, the dissolved...

    Re: Can microfiber go bad?

    I've never tried it myself, but your towels sound like the perfect test specimens for the "boiling" method Coatingsarecrack mentioned.

    Re: DEBRIS when -blow drying- car

    I've been using a leaf blower and/or an air compressor to dry vehicles for as long as I can remember and have never had a problem. Recently, I added a new dedicated leaf blower for the task just to...

    Re: Can microfiber go bad?

    Can it go bad from age alone? Like having a shelf life? I don't think so.

    There are probably a million and one ways you could destroy a microfiber towel with usage and improper care, but I don't...
  7. Re: NAME A FEW OF YOUR MOST COVETED TOOLS OF THE TRADE.

    Now you just need to make a stand for the stand... Get that thing up about waist high and it would be perfect.

    Me... My wheel stand is a much simpler and cheaper option... An old plastic trash can.
  8. Re: Can any waterless wash concentrate product be used as detailed?

    I use Meguiar's D115 (waterless) as my quick detailer.

    I'd expect that any waterless wash could be used as a quick detailer. They're used in a very similar manner... Mist on, wipe off.
  9. Re: How are spray and rinse sealants like HydrO2 legal?

    Like I've mentioned in some other threads, I grew up working in the autobody/painting world. In that world there are many "health hazards" associated with the products used and the working...
  10. Re: How are spray and rinse sealants like HydrO2 legal?

    We can always live in the stone-age.

    Some of these "reporting" regulations are so over-the-top. Here in California Prop 65 is a perfect example. Every store you walk into has a warning plastered...

    Re: YOUR MOST TRUSTY BRUSHES?

    Brushes are a last resort for me... The only exception might be tires.

    Every brush I have ever tried will scratch or mar delicate surfaces regardless of their claims otherwise.
  12. Re: considering foam as a first step on motorcycles

    The closest thing I've found that matches your criteria is S100 Total Cycle Cleaner. It can be a little pricey so I will usually only use it for the hard-to-reach areas, i.e., engine cases, wheels,...
  13. Re: Best way to clean and dress tires without having to repeat entire process?

    I agree that it's a no-brainer. It's so quick and easy and from 5 ft away it looks just as good as if you spent an hour or two scrubbing and coating.

    The only downsides are; overspray on the...

    Re: Resuming a job the next day?

    I rarely finish a job in a single day. My garage is very clean, so I don't worry about dust settling during the off time, although if I feel any pre-restart cleaning/dusting is necessary I'll usually...
  15. Re: Best way to clean and dress tires without having to repeat entire process?

    For daily drivers I don't go through a whole lot of cleaning/scrubbing. I'll give the tires a quick once-over with a wash mitt and/or a tire brush during the wash and that's about it for cleaning....

    2007 Victory Kingpin Detail

    Just finished detailing this 2007 Victory Kingpin motorcycle Wednesday evening… Just in time for Thanksgiving.

    The bike started off filthy and weathered. Not weathered to the point of no return...

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

    Waxed the truck with Meguiar's Ultimate Wax (liquid). It did not need any real prep or correction as I did that a few months ago with Meg's 210... I just wanted that freshly waxed look and slickness,...

    I like to prime my pad with a thin layer of product across the entire face of the pad; and around the edges of the pad if I will be polishing into contours. Spread the product around with a finger or...
