    What Did You Wash, Shine, and or Polish Today

    It’s a weekly occurrence anymore, but I enjoy washing so I don’t mind. I tried some new foam cannon soap, so it was the chance to try that out as well.

    All of our latest work

    Shane, thanks for keeping this thread updated, I like to reference it at times. I would call it the gold standard thread and appreciate the time and effort you take to document

    Washed the wife’s daily. She is a field case RN and does lots of dirt roadin.

    Thoughts on ceramic coatings.

    Shane, I appreciate your effort in elightneing us on the forum on a daily basis, just know it is appreciated. I have applied 1 ceramic coating to date, and am thrilled with the results. As you know I did this in the middle of summer. My question is when is the ideal temperature to apply a coating, I am thinking along the lines of painting and 72 degrees, low humidity? For The Weeknd warriors like myself, seems like fall would be ideal time of year.

    Head light

    Yep, my thoughts as well. I’m hoping it works out well. I already have lights on the stand and they work great however having a headlamp to focus with will only help.

    Head light

    I will take a look at this one, thanks

    Head light

    Just as a follow up. I purchased a coast FL75R, which is a rechargeable headlamp with 530 lumens, and has the ability to focus or to be used as a flood light. It has a lifetime warranty. I purchased this new off eBay for $60. https://www.google.com/amp/s/treelinebackpacker.com/2016/10/06/coast-fl75r-rechargeable-headlamp-review/amp/

    Head light

    Yep, I sure did. I just don’t know how well I would like it. I might give it a try if all else fails.

    Head light

    Curious if anybody has any suggestions for a light to use on my head while doing paint corrections. I have a set of stationary lights, but would like to purchase a quality light to use when my stationary lights are not an easy option. I’m speaking of the lights that go around your head with the elastic, the market is littered with these, but I would like a quality LED if anybody has one they could suggest. Thanks.

    Trim restorer followed by ceramic trim sealant.

    It looks fine without boost, if it’s newer plastic to begin with. My truck is an 01 and the plastic is faded a good bit. The boost brightens it back up easily. I would recommend it. It is effortless to apply.

    What did you do today?

    Awesome. Sounds like a fun job for sure. Really impressed with the size of those. I did forget the RPM, being that large it would take lots of torque to get those pistons moving. I have built a few small single piston engines and my break-in procedure is fresh oil, run the motor at certain RPMs, but don’t allow it to idle for prolong periods of time until you know the rings are seated, dump the oil and go racing. I laugh because the pistons I’m dealing with are like 1/1500 scale of those monsters. Plus your dealing with tons of torque and a low rpm motor, if it’s diesel which I assume it is. Thanks for sharing.

    What did you do today?

    I would be curious to see those piston rings being installed. Those are huge! What was the main reason for changing the piston, looks like a lot of blow by? Often times when putting a new piston or rings in a motor a new cross hatch on the cylinder wall is required to seat the rings, but that would be quite the job as well. Impressed by the job!

    Yes, you are correct. Good luck, the restorer does wonders!

    Thank a Veteran Today

    Thanks to all who have served and paid the ultimate price. God bless.
  15. I like to use PS, topped with guard n gloss, and top that with reload. It makes for an amazing shine and last fine in between washes.
