  1. Re: Hyundai Veloster R-Spec Vs. Ford Fiesta ST

    I don’t mind a tight seat. My issues were with the placement of the side bolsters. They just didn’t fit my body shape.

    I realize the Veloster has a door...um...thing on the passenger side, but...
  2. Re: Hyundai Veloster R-Spec Vs. Ford Fiesta ST

    Tough call. Both great cars.

    I think I'd take the Ford has the usability advantage with the four doors allowing for better access to the rear seat. The Hyundia has more torque down low, so it...
  3. Re: Struggling with Product Selection After Ceramic Coating

    I don't really notice it changing the look at all and only use it post-wash to take care of water spots. I'm not looking for any sort of gloss boost. The coating is plently glossy all on its own. ...
  4. Re: Struggling with Product Selection After Ceramic Coating

    I'll add a second vote for Ech2O as a post-wash wipe down, QD, etc to be used on a coated car. I use it all the time as well and really like it.

    In addition to the list of car soaps provided...

    Re: Thinning a Ceramic Coating

    This is one of the the reasons I won't use coatings like McKee's or PBL any more. The first version McKee's did seem to have a much longer shelf life. My bottle lasted about a year, but I noticed...
  6. Re: Just a random thought about Cancoat vs Mc Kees 37 Paint coating..

    I only used one coat at a time. However, on the last application I applied one coat and then about seven months later I applied a second coat in order to get me through the winter and add a little...
  7. Re: Just a random thought about Cancoat vs Mc Kees 37 Paint coating..

    So far I've used CanCoat on a midsized SUV and applied three coates (not all at once) to a GTI. I still have about 1/4 of the can left.

    My can is now a little over a year old and everything...

    Re: RIP Jessi Combs

    I enjoyed watching her work on Mythbusters and The List.

    I am impressed by the fact she was not only a great hot shoe with a great racing resume, but also a first rate fabricator. Not many...
  9. Re: Just a random thought about Cancoat vs Mc Kees 37 Paint coating..

    Same here. I've never had to use more than one spray head.
  10. Re: Prima Amigo vs chemical paint cleaners vs fine polishes

    Based on what you are wanting to do, I'd go with a fine finishing polish like the Perfecting Cream. However, you still need to think of the paint hardness when considering removal of even light...
  11. Re: Which shampoo to use for paint correction prep?

    Agree as well. The polishing alone will eliminate anything already on the vehicle, to include a paint coating which clay and iron removers won't remove.

    I only have one car wash shampoo (Optimum...

    Re: Ceramic Coating Removal

    Agree a light finishing polish will remove the coating. I've removed small high spots by hand and also done entire pannels easily with a machine.

    With every coating I've removed, it is very...

    Re: Griot's Garage 9.9.19 New Product Release

    I could be proven wrong, but I don't think it will be a coating.

    Last year, I listened to a podcast featuring Nick Griot. On the podcast he said the only way they would do a coating was if they...
  14. Re: 1st time machine compounding, a bit disappointed

    My only addition would be the fact a rubbing compound or even Menz 400 might not be needed on a Toyota. That paint is VERY soft and easy to correct. I've done quite a bit of correction with just a...

    Re: Ceramic Coating

    Three layers of a coating will last a long time and your car will look great, but it won't make it resistant to swirls. Esoteric will be able to polish out all the swirls you have today, but over...

    Re: Can we cut the SiO2 coating nonsense out?

    Those are pretty disapointing results from the McKee's. I used the original version and was able to get 18 months of visable performance by only doing routine washes and a wipe down with a QD spray....

    Re: Most Cut / Best Finish

    This is a good example of the trade-offs you can make. In this case, a more agressive orange pad with a milder polish gets you about the similar results as a less agressive pad with a more agressive...

    Re: hairdresser's car

    It is interesting to see how things have changed over the years.

    Growing up in the 70's and 80's, I got my hair cut at a barber shop. The barbers were all guys in their 40's and 50's. The only...

    Re: Most Cut / Best Finish

    How hard is the paint on your Nissan? If it is like many Japanese vehicles, it will be pretty soft and you won't need a heavy compound. A good finishing polish should do the trick.

    My wife's...

    Re: hairdresser's car

    Exactly. Or someone who is very narrow minded in their view of the car world and doesn't understand that size and power ISN'T all that matters.



    As it should be. I find them too small for me,...

    Re: hairdresser's car

    I think it's meant to be reflect the type of car a female hairdresser would drive. A smaller, "cute" car that is simply something to be seen in and no real performance.

    Typically this label has...

    Re: Car commercials are the worst

    For me the Chevy "Real People" adds are nauseating. The comments the people make are as if they have never sat in a car before and have no idea of what is on sale today. I rarely watch live TV...
  23. Re: New: Blackfire Bug Blocker - confused on application...

    If you pull up the product description on the AG store, it seems to describe it as a temporary road trip or drive-through-the country-at-peak-bug-season type product. I think the 48 hour time frame...
  24. Re: M205 Then Straight to Sealant? [ Or Dawn Wash Or IPA Wipedown After M205 ]

    Same here. Never had a single problem going from polish strait to sealant or wax.

    I'll add another vote to never using Dawn on a car. In addition to not having the sufrance lubricants car...

    Re: Can we cut the SiO2 coating nonsense out?

    Along with SWETM's advice on the packaging being a clue, also look at the durability claims on the product pages. While you're results may vary, if a product claims to get 3+ years you should easily...
