    Re: What are you eating?

    Fresh Salmon?

    I'm eating six $2.00 McDonald's Filet-O-Fish.

    Are you one of those "elites" I've been hearing about lately? LOL.

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    Finished the wall rack for the new Rupes Mille. I opted to mount it around the corner as you can see in the pic.

  4. Re: Order of operations for paint correction and Doctor Colorchip?

    Option 2 without a doubt. If you touch up prior to compounding/polishing, those steps will remove some or all of the touch up paint you just applied. If you feel the need to polish after doing the...

    Re: Can this be touched up?

    That is not going to work... If you don't do any sanding the new paint will flake, chip, peel off in a very short time. Especially if the paint you bought is lacquer, and that is most likely the...

    I don't understand the "hand print" thing... By the picture I don't see how those defects could be attributed to hand prints prior/during the paint job. But then again, I'm not seeing it in person to...

    Re: Flex vs. Rupes Gear Driven Orbital Polishers

    Good Luck with the new Flex. I'm sure it's a great polisher as I've previously stated and most everyone that has one loves it.

    The main reason that I never bought a Flex in the past is the CCW...

    Re: Specific paint issues.

    Sorry to say but if you have exposed base coat I'm not aware of anything you can do short of repainting to fix it. You can experiment with different waxes, sealers, coatings etc., to see what gives...

    Swirls and Squirrels

    You all know Mike's saying, paraphrased that "many people can't tell a swirl from a squirrel". While all of us here and most everyone involved with detailing knows what a swirl is, the general...

  16. Re: Review: BLACKFIRE One-Step Cleaner/Wax by Mike Phillips

    If the paint is truly oxidized (chalky/powdery looking) you might consider giving it the "Comet Cleanser" treatment before attempting to polish with the AIO. That will remove most of the dead paint...

    Re: Issues with Flex xc3401vrg

    I agree with Mike that your tool sounds pretty normal in the first video. But I do hear some sort of squeal in the second video.

    I would disassemble the drive unit to the point necessary to...

    Re: What did you do today non-detailing related?

    Started the final glue-up assembly of the bike rack.

    Decided to do the final assembly outside because this thing is big enough that it would be a pain to get it out of my workshop fully...

    Don't take my word as any expert advice, as I only have a single use to base my opinion, but it might be useful to some extent. The Rupes yellow "fine" D-A polishing pad is a tick on the firm side...
