    2nd order showed up (after 10 days!)

    [​IMG]

    tried out some of the stuff.

    Love the S&G...
    Gotta try the glas restorer on Spyders car, he got water spots from a volcano or something, wont come off.


    The bug squash works good... that's nice
    12 micro's on sale - free pinicle microfiber wash

    still gotta apply the wheel seelant

    the Klasse - damn, my dad's boat has a big faded spot where the sun hit's it all year round where it's parked.
    I've tryed Meg's polish and wax on it before, did nothing.
    I 've polished it 4x, and it's alomst gone. I'll get pics when it's done.
    Gotta hit my truck's chromies with it too.

    Sounds like a good thing to do tomorrow.



    Eveyone - have a good Id4!!

    ya i got some waterspots on the windows that dont want to come off either. If it works ill have to add it to the list... so far im getting a porter cable 7424 with some polishes not sure exactly what i want got to look into it, some trim restorer and other shit i cant think of right now. I finally just decided to break down and get the pc to do the polishing and remove scratches and save time and my arm.

    Will let you guys know on the glass restorer stuff.


    I went and bought a PC on monday.
    I burned up my Pep boys one doing our boat.
    What everyone says about them not lasting is true. got about 8 months out of it.
    now I need some good pads for it.
    got some terry and polishing pads.

    It works awsome. It's heavier, got a good motor in it.

    worked on my bro in law's truck that he never washes.
    I always herrass him. It's a nice red that I know would look good, so we hit it yesterday.
    Seriously hasn't done more than drive through washes occasionally since last year.
    PB polish, with natty's wax.
    The PC was nice to use. I like it.

    I also used the bug squash on it, and my truck, and my friend suv.
    that stuff makes cleaning bugs off easy. I recommend it!

    I recommend it.
    It really goes on easy, and the finish is better than the meguries I was using before.

    For starters I'd recommend:
    the polish
    Natty's wax
    spray and gloss
    Wheel sealant for your new wheels??!
    bug squash - cleans off bug splats, dried out or whatever really well.
    they're soap works great too.

    your car being red you might wanna try the stuff matt used, it's especially for red paint , but you can see the post above
    how the PB's looks on this truck.

    Wytstang turned me onto it, so I checked it out.

    basically it seals up the wheel, kinda like a wax coating, so crap wont stick to it.
    I've always waxed me wheels for that puropse, this stuff better, and it's pink.

    whatever the finish, chrome, paint or polished, it can corrode.
    Brake dust is the enemy, it's acidic, and will eat into the finish of the wheel the longer it sticks there.
    the sealer keeps that from happening, and makes it much easier to clean.

    Here's the link you can read they're beef on it.

    OK, I tried that glass restorer on Systang's cobra, big water spots etched on his windows.
    It didn't work.

    No, I'll have to give it a shot.
