    Re: Product Suggestions to Avoid Water Spots

    Are these waterless washes that specify QD dilution ratios, or are you just experimenting to find a ratio that works as a QD? (if the latter, what ratios are you using?)

    Thanks.

    I have tried to draw on that picture in your post:

    Can someone explain to me how to tell that the marks in the last 2 pictures are Holograms?

  5. Re: Using heat gun to remove rubber marks from paint?

    That has solvents in it though (albeit likely very diluted).

    I'm not against solvents, but maybe heat is a better option. Not sure.

    Also, that R3 seems to have great reviews.

    Re: Aggressive clay or 3000 grit ?

    In these pictures it is okay to use rotary (? I believe that is nano rotary?) to compound/buff around those slats like that?

    Specifically, the risk of burn-through on top part of those slats is...

    Re: Only Wiping Once Using QD/WW products

    Eureka! I did not take car color into account. That could indeed be why one wipe often seems like enough to me these days.

    Thanks, both of you. This is exactly the information I was looking for.



    That sounds like a blast!

    Also, applying the LSP to everything seems like a great call. As things age I feel like the...

    Re: Best tire dressings?

    M40 says it cleans/protects while leaving a natural sheen.

    Just curious if you cleaned with someone else and then used M40 for that result, or only used M40?

    Also, looks great!

    Re: Griots Speed Shine Question

    Strangely, it is maybe the only product I've tried from them that I haven't liked very much. I felt like it would streak more easily than I like.

    Do you NEED to prep before waxing?

    Lets say you detail a car to your satisfaction and you have put some wax on it. Then you park the car indoors until the wax goes away (I'm assuming it eventually would, but correct me if I'm wrong). ...

    Is there a reason to have both of these towels (aside from having different colored towels for different purposes)? Or is the choice between them just personal preference?
