    Al, do yourself a favor and try the Rupes 15 at correction, too. It may not be quite as awesome as the 21, but I would predict you will really like it there, too.

    The way I understand it is the 15 vs. the 21 is the orbital rotation. Is the 15 smaller in overall size than the 21?

    My understanding the only difference is the orbit and backing plate but Mike can confirm since he owns both. The 21 comes with 6 -in and 15 comes with 5 but may depend on who sells it. The body is the same.

    I believe that a 5" BP is available for the 21? Can anyone input on this?

    Correct, the bp from the 15 fits on the 21 and is available from Buff Daddy (Kevin Brown).

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    I did a rinseless wash and interior cleaning of my daily driver.

    Product used:
    • Blackfire Rinseless - two bucket (actually ONR in rinse bucket)
    • 9 microfiber mitts
    • Microfiber towels to dry
    • Ultima Waterless Wash for wheels
    • Poorboys Bug Squash 3:1 on cowling - flushed with residual rinseless
    • Chem Guys Nonsense 20:1 on carpets - at 20:1 did not seem to be any more effective than water to clean mats
    • Metro Vac n Blo mini
    • Mothers new Leather Tech wash and moisturizer - interesting product
    • 1z Cockpit Premium on the interior


    I also checked air pressure including the spare. The 60 psi compacts can lose a lot of pressure in 3 to 4 months.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    Did some light paint correction on this 2013 Ford Focus. I was amazed at how the paint was already covered in micro scratches from inproper washing. Didnt get much pics as I didnt have a outside light and I was working against the sun. I did manage to get a few though. I ended up having to use a pink LC pad and some PoorBoys world SSR1 to remove most of the scratches. Then followed that with a white LC pad and PoorBoys world polish, followed by a black LC pad and Black Hole glaze. Of course it got topped with BFMS.

    It is sunny and 45 today. It was warm in the sun but still did some inside work. I got the electric heater going in the garage. It started at 48 and got it 60.

    MKZ: I cleaned the glass inside with Mothers Glass Cleaner and used Sprayway on the exterior.

    Dakota: I vacuumed the interior with the Metro and cleaned the carpet with Chemical Guys NONSENSE cleaner. The jury is still out on NONSENSE even at full strength.

    I also applied Mothers Protectant on the interior then I removed water spots on the exterior with a Rupes 15 and a 5.5-in Lake Country Tangerine pad and Mothers Water Spot Remover. I cleaned the glass inside and out with Meguiars Glass Cleaner.

    Re: What did you do detailing wise today?

    I did get to use the Rupes a little yesterday.

    My comments:
    1. The rear end is just as long as the Flex so a consideration with hand/body position compared to the PC. The line cord was on the stiff side. For people with short arms, this is a consideration.

    2. Very refined whirring sound at speed. Flex has a more gear grinding sound. The vibration overall is comparable - both nice.

    3. The finger switch behaves a little different than the Flex. It is just on or off compared to the progressive action by the Flex. It will lock.

    4. The Rupes has a soft start and goes slightly over speed before stabilizing. The speed control is very easy to use - enough detent to prevent accidental movement.

    5. The overhang at the front seemed a little smaller than the Flex.

    6. Plenty of power.

    7. The backing plate keeps a tenacious grip on pads.

    Refined a "Sharkskin" body kit. It was custom painted. It`s for a 2012 AMA Triumph 675R Daytona. It was one of the first to arrive in the country.
    We added the same pearl to the black. Also added black accents w/pearl to nose and tail. Paint by Keith Vanhoose. Primer block and finish me.

    The smoothness of the LHR 15 allowed me to compound/polish with one hand in delicate areas. This composite body is super thin.

    The flake. Owner did not want this sanded flat, just like factory peel. This bike is track only now.
