I know a lot of detailers have abandoned the rotary but for those of us who started out with Sioux polishers and still like to cut with some enthusiasm it`s nice to have a machine that lets us use all that muscle memory we`ve developed over the years. This machine runs smoother than other forced rotation machines because the orbit is enough to eliminate the swirl but not so much that it kicks back a lot of vibration. Also, it has plenty of RPMS to get work done.

    If you reply back, do me a favor and share what compounds and polishes you like with foam pad.

    All the best.
    That would be a great topic for a new separate thread!👍

    Ryan - what happened to your post count???? Shows you only have 10 posts? Maybe they didn’t merge both of your profiles when both Autopias merged? ��`♂️

    Checking in. It`s been a long, long time since I have posted. Age 78 and still detailing just not as OCD as I used to be. I gave up on black trucks several years ago and have moved over to white. "Nuff" said. Glad that I recognize some of the "old timers". Still riding my Harleys only no more long tours.
    2 white Tacomas and 2 black Harleys. I got half-way smart.

    EFCP is actually what prompted me to check in here! I was looking to see if anyone still sold EF products online. I found some available at "The Detailing Shop" online. I still remember the smell of that stuff.

    Re: Old School Autopian Check In !!!

    Howdy. Got into detailing in high school (mid-2000s) and got started on Detail University forums before becoming a frequent Autopian. Went off to college and didn`t have a place nor the time to tend to my vehicle and got out of the swing of things. Post-college I was still in apartments and relocated about every year and the lack of stability still meant I just didn`t even bother. Fast-forward to this year, wife and I bought a house and grad school is wrapping up and I am finally excited to get back into the swing of things! Admittedly, I have lost the zeal with which I first dove in to detailing. I attribute that to a mix of factors. I got into it with my first car, which was gorgeous when detailed. Nothing quite like your first, you know? I like my car (Ford Edge), but it`s not the same. Plus, now I`m older with more responsibilities and just don`t have the bandwidth.

    Now, it`s more about keeping decent protection on my car so washing/drying it is easy enough to keep up with so it looks decent most of the time. Flawless paint isn`t really a priority. Obviously I will try to keep things as marr-free as possible, but the light swirls currently in my paint don`t bother me the way they used to. Now, once I get around to doing a full paint correction I think things will change, but for now I`m just looking forward to getting a good coat of wax on while I restock on pads and quality towels and get up to speed on the latest products (ceramic coatings? wtf?).

    Not gonna lie, my first thought logging back on here was wondering how many of the old regulars had moved on and if it was the same community I remember. Seeing a lot of you guys still here has made my day!
