    I always check in with the greatest detailing site on earth at some point.



    I was a moderator in the old days. My autopia banner hangs proudly on my garage wall.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    I joined in 2009 because I wasn`t happy with my detailing performance. I`ve learned so much from this forum and I`m greatful. Now my skill level is beyond what I could have imagined and my knowledge has built my confidence when talking to my customers. Thank you Autopia!

    For anyone that’s been on the board for a while it would be awesome to just have you say hi to let us know you still browse the forum. Let’s say anything prior to a join date of 2010. The 100th person will receive an Autopia short sleeve T-Shirt. (shipped free within the US)

    Feel free to post a comment or 2 about how you found out about the forum and any memories from back in the day you’d like to share.



    If I notice someone lurking and not posting :silenced: I’m going to call you out so you better start :typing:


    I think I qualify I remember the MF revolution, CD test threads. I remember ordering from PakShak in 2003 and thinking I couldn`t believe I just spent that much on MFs --- but I have those towels still today and they still work beautifully.

    Brings back good memories - Quality vendors back then were PakShak, Excel Detail, Danase. Klasse AIO was always applied before any LSP....



    I remember the big questions were:

    1) S100 / P21S - Same thing???

    2) Which do you prefer? S100/P21S, #16, Blitz, Platinum UPP, Souveran, or Zaino

    3) Are these new microfiber towels comparable to the DF Concours Towel?

    4) Menzerna IP/FP or Meg`s #83/#80



    Things were so simple back then...

    G`day all. long time although had a few years away after being banned for a reason I just dont understand but then having the ban lifted

    Gotta say though - still a good forum but it`s just not the same as it once was. too commercial
    Car care/detailing sadly isn`t high on the agenda for 98% of australians.

    Here since Nov 2003, started reading probably in 2001.



    I remember the days of Zaino, 106/SIP, the lust for the best Carnauba. Things change, for the better.

    I lurked and read for a year or two before I officially joined. Still read a few times a week. Maybe less, for a while.

    I still like PakShak as they are the only one who carries Wolf`s, CG, and Optimum in a one stop shop -- not to mention I am finally getting around to renewing my MFs that I got from Ranny 10 years ago...
