  1. Re: My 18th trip to The Tail of the Dragon & Family trip combined!

    Love the Dragon. Next time we go we’re staying at Tapoco Lodge - classic old time lodging and a cool Tavern for eating.
  2. Re: Mothers Carnauba paste wax stuck all over car, why?

    Since you mentioned in your original post you had clayed, you’re good to go to apply wax. Apply a thin coat with an appropriate applicator to an area about 1/4th the size of the hood. It should...
  3. Re: Mothers Carnauba paste wax stuck all over car, why?

    I always suggest you follow the directions and apply to a small area at a time. Maybe even a body panel. The entire vehicle at once with a carnauba product? That wasn't the product's fault. Sorry.
  4. Re: Mothers Carnauba paste wax stuck all over car, why?

    Any idea how old it is? Can you shoot a pic of the front on the can so I can get a general idea, or (even better) the back of the can, which would show me the lot number?

    Re: What's in your backyard?

    Like this one from my parent's house a few weeks ago.

  6. Re: Thanks to Mothers for Sponsoring Commercial-free Formula One TV Coverage !

    Thanks for the kind words. We've been sponsoring the live races for a few years now, and F1 fans are enthusiastic about being able to watch commercial free.

    One of our big rigs is dedicated to...

    Re: Mothers Pure Carnauba Wax

    Paste and liquid perform the same, so it’s preference.

    I prefer paste - I’m less likely to overapply, and paste is a better value. It’s not uncommon to get 20+ applications out of 1 can versus...

    Re: Mothers Pure Carnauba Wax

    Thanks for the kind words. 05550 has been around since the late 80s.

    When we introduced it, we took some cans from the first batch and put them in presentation boxes for a few of our buyers. I...

    Re: Chrome polish

    From the shape of the spokes, I‘d say the PowerCone would be a better choice than the PowerBall.
  11. Re: How do you protect rubber trim when using a sealant?

    I'm a big believer in dressing the trim before applying products to the paint.

    Re: Drying Towel Scratches

    Particularly on black, try to pat-dry instead of wiping.

    The foam core drying towels are a good choice for this method.

    Re: Window Cleaner Does Not Freeze

    Better glass cleaners are alcohol based. IPA doesn't freeze until ~ -128F.

    Your best bet is to keep all detailing products from freezing. Paste wax gets destroyed. Many liquids will not go...

    Re: Was I foolish to buy it?

    We offer the Wax Attack 2 to simplify paint correction for folks who aren’t used to compounding and polishing and don’t want to invest a week’s pay in a machine. The pads and products were developed...
  15. Re: Question on quick interior detailer products?

    I think of interior detailers like paint instant detailers - no real protection but great for removing dust, fingerprints and sweat residue in the summer. I keep a small bottle inside a small wash...

    Re: Mother Back To Black Spray?

    I wouldn't use Back-to-Black (either aerosol or liquid) on tires.

    It won't hurt anything, but there are better choices for tires.

    The aerosol is great on grills - so many are honeycomb with...
  19. Re: Review: Mothers Mag & Aluminum Polish - Exhaust Tip Polishing - RUPES Nano

    I'd guess the tips are stainless, based on the black residue. Chrome wouldn't generate black residue.

    And yes, there is a substantial difference between Mag & Aluminum Polish, and Chrome Polish. ...
  20. Re: Should I Quick Detail With Mothers Instant Detailer and Then Apply Another Coat of Optimum Wax?

    It wont degrade your wax. If it were me, Id go for the least expensive, easiest to find product, which would be the California Gold Instant Detailer. Itll work fine over the wax youre using.
  21. Re: Should I Quick Detail With Mothers Instant Detailer and Then Apply Another Coat of Optimum Wax?

    Yes, California Gold Instant Detailer is fine on a wrap or Paint Protection Film. I took his question as to applying a product over the top of it. Any wax or sealant would be fine over the top of...
  22. Re: Should I Quick Detail With Mothers Instant Detailer and Then Apply Another Coat of Optimum Wax?

    If you're worried about "leaving something behind" when detailing, I'd suggest you go with a body-shop safe instant detailer like our 85624 Professional Detailer or Meguiar's #34 Final Inspection.

    Re: What's in your backyard?

    Like Desertnate mentioned, we get deer. Lots of deer. I put a trail camera out every night, and it's not uncommon to get 4 or more at one time. And we live in the suburbs, not the country. We've...
  25. Re: Any final suggestions before I sell this smelly car?

    Try chlorine dioxide. For a few dollars it can't hurt.
