    Cleaning stain in roof liner

    I used 303 Cleaner & Spot Remover for my detailing business. There hasn't been anything yet that it couldn't remove. Spray it on, let it set for a couple of minutes and agitate very gently. http://www.303products.com/shop303/index.cfm/category/68/303-cleaner-and-spot-remover.cfm

    Polish without a machine?

    The vast majority come from poor washing/drying habits.

    I think you might be a little confused. Claying and polishing with a DA buffer are two completely different things. Claying is ALWAYS done by hand and is for removing bonded contaminants from your paint surface. Polishing (either by hand or DA polisher) is done to remove various paint imperfections (ie, swirl marks, micro marring, etching, etc) by removing a very thin layer of clear coat. So claying will not replace the need for polishing. In fact, clay bar causes micro marring and it's always best to follow up with polishing to remove the paint imperfections left behind by the clay bar.

    My S2000 Got Hit.

    Nice, they look really good. Yup, I'm on s2ki as well, however I haven't been on there in awhile. Active on way too many forums I guess. Any other pics of your S2K?

    They are very solid cars. If you get one make sure you get an 07+ for a Sedan or an 08+ for a Coupe as both of them have the VQ35HR engine. Of course the VQ37HR is even better if you want to go newer. Nothing wrong with getting a Vette either. If you have any questions on the G just let me know. I'm an Administrator over on g35driver.com as well

    Love it. It's a very competent sports sedan and is a lot of fun to drive also..........just in a very different way than the S2000.

    I LOVE mine as well. These cars are such a blast to drive, aren't they? Did you get your AP2 wheels chromed? Here's a pic of my baby.

    ^ Awesome! Too bad that you forgot your mem card and couldn't take pics! I'm not sure about you, but I find a day of detailing very gratifying. A couple of beers and a good cigar really helps too!

    Hey Sac, just put 1 oz of your CG detergent in the detergent section of your washer and you are good to go. If you have a large load of MF towels (which you probably won't have) use 2 oz of your CG detergent. Use warm/hot water and make sure you don't use a fabric softener.

    Optimum No Rinse is a rinseless car wash product. It's perfect for those that live in apartments without access to a hose, wintertime washing, etc. You typically mix 1 oz into 1-2 oz of water in a bucket when washing your vehicle. It can also be used as a clay bar lubricant or as a quick detailer (1 oz ONR with 16 oz of water). It's definitely one of my favourite detailing products!! Optimum Opti-Clean is a waterless wash product and is typically used to remove light dirt, dust, pollen, bird bombs, etc from your paint. It's a great quick detailer and has the necessary lubricants in it so that it will not harm your paint surface. My vehicles always have a waterless wash product and a couple of MF towels in the trunk.

    Well done, that's a great list of products!

    That's awesome Sac! What did you end up purchasing from DI? Btw, George whom is the owner of DI, is absolutely fantastic to deal with. I used to get all of my supplies from him until he stopped shipping to Canada.

    Umm, well of course it's not going to flake off if you touch it. But today's paints are MUCH softer today than they were one decade ago, two decades ago, etc. Today's softer paints mean that it's MUCH easier to incur rock chips. That's why so many car owners get a clear bra installed on their vehicle.

    Actually, today's paint is rather fragile as they are all water based now due to environmental reasons. Water based paints are very much softer than the old oil based paints and are way more susceptible to rock chips.

    They actually age quite well when taken care of properly. They are a real life saver for your paint to guard against rock chips. I probably wouldn't get one if I leased the vehicle, but if you plan on keeping your vehicle for a some time, I would highly recommend one.
