    That paint look smooth. I like the look of the new Dodge trucks. I`m glad they stopped with that puffed up transformer look they`ve had for too long.

    Very interesting! What aspect of it do you find more tricky?

    Is it a "depth vs. shine" LSP-type issue? I generally don`t nitpick that on white...

    No, spotting and correction of defects. On the dark colors they stick right out.

    Mike lambert- Ah, OK...yeah, it *is* a little different, for me at least, on white. Not just compared to dark colors, but from metallics like silver too. Sometimes I even see flaws on white better under fluorescents of all things! (Props to Bill D who originally suggested I try that.)

    Could you please refresh my memory (sorry!)..which ones do you have? I get *so* much conflicting/different feedback about the various ScanGrip lights, and the different generations of same, it`s hard for me to keep track of who likes/doesn`t what.

    I do appreciate feedback about Inspection Lighting, even if I don`t do correction for years on end...what I have now works fine for me but I`m still curious about the New Shiny Things (i.e., LEDs).

    I have the first gen hand held and the larger one on the stand. If I was to buy another, I’d go with the Griot’s large one. Works just as well at about half the price.

    Have look out at the second generation Scangrip lights. Where I bought the Sunmatch v1 just a couple of months ago. Sell the Sunmatch v2 for 140$ and the big box kit v2 for 380$. If I where detailing for money I would order the kit v2. But it`s to much for my situation and is on the look out for a new polisher. The same company has the Rupes LH19E rotary polisher 230v stn kit for 380$ know too. And I know I will wait to long to get it at that price LOL. The Black Friday is coming up so will see how the prices is then. But 35% off the retail price is a good price. I have don`t really decided if going rotary or a smoother longthrow DA yet. Ohh the Scangrip v3 was released at SEMA this year. So that`s why the prices are dropping on the earlier versions I think.

    Is there any difference from the GG lights and the Scangrips?

    When working with Rod Kraft from Griot’s I noticed no difference, again at half the price.

    Mike lambert- Thanks, appreciate the feedback about the lights. SO much to digest, so many differing experiences/opinions!

    SWETM- The 2nd Gen ScanGrips are the ones I hear so much conflicting stuff about! There are guys who *insist* that they can`t see some stuff under them that they *do* see under the original ones.
