    I also have some of the Jeff Werkstatt products left: Prime, Prime Acrylic, Prime Strong, and some Acrylic Jet Spray. I used to really love all their stuff and made my BMW Titanium Metallic paint POP !!!

    Another product I do not hear very often? Over-the-Counter Simple Green. Maybe after all these years of my incessant harping about not using this product for car detailing or de-greasing because of its whitening/etching/bloom of aluminum, fellow Autopians have finally gotten the message.
    Yes, they make a Professional Simple Green formulation that is suppose to very safe for aluminum, but at a cost of about $16.00 per gallon, Meg`s Professional Detailer Line D101 All-Purpose Cleaner or D108 De-Greaser is better. although not cheaper.

    Anyone remember Eco Touch? I was digging around a while back and found this bottle of the Tire Shine and figured I`d give it a go again today. Eco Touch to match the "eco-product" label that I noticed for the first time today on the tire. I remember when this line popped up in Target and then pretty quickly was clearanced out shortly afterwards for dirt cheap, which sent a lot of people on a treasure hunt to grab these bottles for a few bucks each. This tire shine is the only one I remember being able to find at the time in my area.

    Goes on easy, nice natural sheen to it. I think VRP and Perl provide a richer finish but this isn`t bad at all. Slowly getting my hands on all of the tire stuff I`ve accumulated to narrow choices down.

    I think I got a sample bottle of their Waterless/Rinseless wash, maybe at Detail Fest. I don`t every remember using, and it could still on a shelf in the garage.

    Old product that was useless and greatest shoulder work beside 3 sets of 8 overhead military press is Megs No7. Unless I got a bad bottle or something. Very difficult product to apply and wipe off for me

    Megs #7 is really only useful for single stage paint.

    I gather M07 is the only Mirror Glaze "Pure Polish" still available, right?

    I always greatly preferred M05 New Car Glaze or the slightly oilier (but still easier than M07) M03 Machine Glaze (worked fine by hand). Or even my second-least fave M81 Hand Polish Polish.

    But yeah, *ALL* of the above were utterly useless IME on b/c paint. Complete waste of resources that just took the pop off an otherwise OK Detail (yeah, made `em look slightly *worse*).

    They *ARE* great on old-school/tech single stage though (even if I don`t use `em on the Jag ). But once paint tech started modernizing in the `80s they weren`t my choice even on that newer ss.
