    Thanks, amigo, I'll give it a try when the Perl bottle nears M-T. :-)

    DFB: Your thoughts compared to Perl?

    Larger Diameter Front Tire Question

    Should have known that ingenious folks would come up with a solution like that, Jamie...great idea. I thought of theft but read that they are extremely heavy sections which hopefully, would solve that issue. Imagine the local HOA's By-Laws might come into play. What say you, Earl?

    Larger Diameter Front Tire Question

    Dang sorry the tire idea didn't work out as you had hoped, Earl. Perhaps a row of SlipLo pieces is in order? They're only about 3/16 thick. Just a thought, amigo. It'll still scrape but the damage will be to them, not the splitter.

    1st Mods on 2020 GT500

    The JLT intake I ordered finally arrived a couple days ago and I installed it yesterday. About as simple as it gets but the old Toob video, as usual, is the best installation manual. Drove her after, didn't really have a time/place to get after it seriously but I do believe she stretched her...

    Anyone else really struggle with glass?

    Kristian: I'm not sure anything short of a compound and a polisher will get it all and I'm also sure that's especially true if you put a fair number of miles/month on the vehicle. My car was right at a year old in these images with less than 2k on her. In the first image, you can see the line...

    Paint correction question

    Impossible to tell for sure Connor but from the photo, it looks like just a little polishing with a finishing compound and a DA polisher might very well remove that spot.

    Anyone else really struggle with glass?

    Kristian: IMHO, the problem with glass is, it gets coated with all sorts of undesirable materials. Wax being the biggest source. My solution was to polish all the exterior glass with a Fine pad and M205. Then I coated it all with OG's Wolf glass sealant. That fixed the majority of the problem...

    Professional Ceramic Coating - Which Would You Choose?

    Wives will do that sorta thing but then, they don't understand any more about automobiles than we do about makeup, hair coloring, and fashion. <grin> And yes, I think you could use a cone on a cordless drill. You will probably still have to do some hand polishing but if you don't want to throw a...

    Professional Ceramic Coating - Which Would You Choose?

    Short of spending a week polishing by hand, Mike, there is really only one way...with a mini polisher. And even with one of these it can take awhile.

    I second Earl and Jamie's recommendations. Ford took away the reliable sites and left customers with a completely useless tracker. Crying shame is what it is. As for VIN's and chassis numbahs, I don't think there's any relationship at all. Depends on what the company is building at the time not...

    Professional Ceramic Coating - Which Would You Choose?

    I'll chime in on the lighting situation... Yep, it's beautiful if you have a huge shop with nice, bright overhead lights and lots of stands of other work lights for the sides. But in my experience, while good lighting is essential, it doesn't have to be "detail level" lighting everywhere. I...

    Totally agree with the sentiment, impossible to see by anyone but yourself AND, you got the vehicle! HAPPY EASTER!

    Tire Dressings-which ones?

    Had quite a few Earl locations in Akron, Oh High Yo were I grew up, HD. Remember those paint jobs very well. Smart guy, too cuz most people didn't keep the car long enough for the mistakes to show. :-) AND, he did have some good painters AND, IIRC, it was enamel, too.

    Tire Dressings-which ones?

    Believe it or not, in the '60's, we used to use keosene, tar, and a brush? :) The next commercial products that came out were nothing more than black shoe polish but they certainly worked better than tar. :-)

    Professional Ceramic Coating - Which Would You Choose?

    Mike: There is no question that if paint correction is done properly, it will virtually always result in a smoother surface and thus, provide a clearer reflection. I understand that many people are more than happy with the condition of their paint on a new vehicle and for them, perhaps...
