  1. I can't enter, being from overseas, but super cool to see a giveaway for the forum - good luck everyone!
  2. This might be a silly question, but I couldn't see it on the specs of the TV - does the TV support HDR (High Dynamic Range?) If not, that might be the reason why it is reverting back to 4K SDR. I'm not a tech nerd, so I could be way off....
  3. Hey all, I have just received my weekend car back from the body shop after having the engine bay smoothed and painted. I am looking at protecting this paint the best I can before I put the engine back into the car. Ceramic coating is obviously on the list, but I am wondering if it would be better using the Wheel Coating instead of the normal paint coating due to the extra heat that it will see. Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks!
  4. It needs a bit of work to the gearbox, but I couldn't turn it down (it's still so filthy)
  5. Spend some time cleaning the new to me car I picked up a month ago - starting with the leather seats 🤢 The bottom part has been cleaner and the rest still needs to be done. Not a bad car for $400 though, it needs a lot of love but should be a great daily driver once she's all fixed up. The paint is dull and looks flat, even though its metallic, so waiting until I can hit it with some polish to bring it back to life.
  6. They definitely need some love, two kids and no care have wrecked havoc on the interior - there were car stickers all over the back window Thanks for the advice, will give that a try Will do, tell Marquis I owe him a beer or two! I'll post some photos up after I give it a go, I'm hoping the hard leather on the front seat comes good with some cleaning and a lot of conditioner
  7. Hey all, just picked up a new to me Volkswagen Passat CC with dark brown leather. Problem is, the previous owners child has spilled silver glitter nail polish on the rear seat - is there any way of Saving the leather without causing more damage? the second problem is the drivers seat leather has some hard spots and the texture has changed. I’m thinking that I may just have to put up with this, but would love any ideas on if it could possibly be fixed. I’ve attached photos of the damage. Thanks!
  8. I use it on delicate wheels that I don't want to use harsh chemicals on. They aren't ever very dirty and the Eco WC is great for removing and lubricating when running a wash mitt over them. I agree that it's not great on filthy wheels, but I don't think that's what it's designed for.
  9. Carried out the detail today, thanks for all the advice! ended up using glass cleaner on the matte paint, and it worked a treat! Eco APC and Eco wheel cleaner were used on the engine, frame and wheels, and waterless wash and detail spray used on the painted surfaces. The seat was cleaned and conditioned, unfortunately someone had written on it with a ballpoint pen, which didn’t want to budge. The customer has ordered a specific matte coating kit so protection will be carried out once that arrives. Here’s a couple of quick photos
  10. Hi all, I've done a bit of searching of old topics, but this has made me a bit more confused, so I thought I would ask the question here: I have an Indian Scout that a friend of mine has just purchased new, and he would like me to detail and protect it - the trouble is, it has matte black paint from factory, and I'm worried about cleaning this with waterless/rinseless wash. From what I have read, rinseless used as directed or diluted to WW strength won't be suitable for this paint, as it may cause streaking on the finish due to the wax element included. I know there was a matte det
  11. I use the microfiber blocks too, using the dry application method, so much easier!
  12. It looks as though the anti-glare coating is failing on the screen, which is common on older Macbook laptops etc. I don't believe there is a way of fixing it unfortunately
  13. Could the problem be using the lint sheet? I was under the impression they are to be dried on low heat with no drying/lint sheets
  14. Just gave this a listen - pretty cool to hear a few words of wisdom from the man himself. I'm guessing this is a few years old, considering he mentioned Series 9 of videos and that they were working on a ceramic coating?
