    • Went ahead and ordered the CR Spotless DIC-20 as it would benefit me the most. Still haven’t decided whether I’m getting the Kranzle yet. In the mean time, in my search for a better nozzle, I bought the Eley pistol grip spray nozzle. This thing seems like it’ll be the last spray nozzle I every buy lol.

      update: it arrived today and was a perfect time to test it out. Full sun, no shade from the tree since it has no leaves yet....ZERO water spots.

      • I’ve now used the CR spotless 4 times now. I can confirm ZERO water spots, even washing a black car in full on direct sunlight. My water TDS isn’t too bad at ~44, so time will tell how long the resin lasts. Wish I had picked up the CR spotless a long time ago. Oh and I caved in and picked up the full kranzle package, Mosmatic gun, mtm foam cannon etc..

        • Just getting into more elevated detailing, so here is 12 hours worth of finally getting wax on the truck after winter. Wash, fallout remover, clay bar on the entire truck. Two coats of Collinite 845.

          • I spilled a lot of blue two stroke motor oil on the floor of my car. What is the best way to remove it from the carpet?

            • Details on my ride are as follows:

              * Vehicle: 2017 Mercedes AMG C Class Coupe in Selenite Grey
              * Wheels: Vorsteiner V-FF107ís Flow Formed (not pictured below)
              * Clear bra: Full front clear bra (hood, fenders, mirrors, headlights) in Xpel Ultimate
              * Ceramic coat: Gtechniq
              * Window Tint: Llumar Formula One Ceramic Tint on all windows (70 windshield, 30 elsewhere)

              I bought the car new the day they released the Coupe version in the US, and Iíve invested in the following for paint/car care, but Iíll be honest Ė Iíve never washed the thing myself. Nor have I ever washed any car I've owned, and I am 33. For the AMG, I either just leave it dirty as hell or have the dealership wash it for me with their free car wash service.

              About a year ago, I had the ceramic clear coat added, and had it detailed, paint corrected, clay baríd, etc then. I honestly don't think I've washed it since then, and that was done in last July of 2018 (pic below is from the day I got it back, doesn't show the new wheels as those those came after.



              Now I am looking to take care of it the way I should, so I'm trying to spark an internal passion for auto detailing.

              Below are the products Iíve ordered:

              * Foam Cannon: MTM Hydro 14.5001 PF-22 Professional Foam Cannon Lance Kit with 1.1mm orifice mod
              * Car shampoo/foam: Adamís Car Wash Shampoo
              * Detail spray/drying aid: Adam's Detail Spray (ended up deciding Iíll just use this on my wifeís XC90 and Iíll use the C2V3 diluted as my drying agent...was told they may not play well together if I use the Adamsís primarily and the C2V3 on occasion)
              * Ceramic Coat Care: Gtechniq C2 Liquid Crystal
              * Tire shine/trim care: Adam's VRT Vinyl, Rubber, Tire & Trim Dressing
              *Tire brush: EZ Detail Mini
              * Wash mits: THE RAG COMPANY (2-Pack) Premium Cyclone Korean Microfiber Wash Mitts
              * Applicators: Chemical Guys MIC\_292\_08 Premium Grade Microfiber Applicators (Workhorse Light Blue for Glass, Workhorse Green for Paint)
              * Detailing Polishing Towels: THE RAG COMPANY Everest 1100 White Ultra-Plush Korean 70/30 Professional Microfiber Detailing Towels
              * Drying Towels: THE RAG COMPANY (3-Pack) Dry Me A River Professional Korean 70/30 Microfiber Waffle
              * Tire applicators: Adam's VRT Super Block Tire Dressing Applicator

              I'll need to figure out the tint/window care product as well as the stuff for the interior (leather seats and dash), but crossing one bridge at a time here...thinking 50/50 distilled water and white vinegar for the windows, based on some early research.

                  If your mornings in FL are anything like Houston's than I bet your are soaking wet with sweat right now.

                    A little humid today, but we had a nice breeze. I can always do it in the garage with the AC, but wanted the better light since it was the first coast of sealant on the ride.

                      If I had AC in my garage...I’d just get better lights
                      Out next house must have a climate controlled space for washing/detailing on one side and simulator on the other lol

                          Of course. Amazing what comes up. I always urge to use caution to have enough liquid to not cause swirls though

                            Yeah its crazy. A lot of work, but worth it with the end product. You will have swirls no matter what, but that's what machine polish is for. I did a buddies black Honda Accord a couple weeks ago and he was dumbfounded on how it turned out. He was also dumbfounded on how long it the process takes haha
