    I was up early to get to work on the daily driver

    • Washed with CG Citrus Wash and Gloss and Chenille mitt
    • Polished headlights with Mothers Plastic Polish and Mothers Headlight foam ball
    • Polished the daily driver mostly with Menzerna PO85RD (what a long work time) using Uber blue and LC black pads. I used Meg`s M205 on some smaller areas by hand
    • Applied Menzerna Power Lock with a Lake Country white sealant pad (super soft). (Blackfire Midnight Sun tomorrow)
    • Vacuumed the interior
    • Cleaned driver`s matt with Wolfgang Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner
    • Applied Blackfire Protectant to interior included seats
    • Cleaned jambs with CG Speed Wipe

    Dear Al

    You`re tough, young, or both.

    I applied a coat of Poorboy`s White Diamond Show Glaze to our van. It took nearly 2.5 hours. On Wednesday through yesterday I applied a coat of Blackfire Gloss Enhancing Polish to get rid of the LSPs I applied incorrectly in early April. (I didn`t give the Blackfire Wet Diamond any cure time in early April.) Tomorrow I`ll apply the first of two coats of Wet Diamond.

    I`m disappointed by my lack of stamina, but I`m glad I can leave the van in the garage for such an extended period. It`ll probably be Wednesday before I drive it again.

    I`m only 43 years old, but I`m overweight and not used to a lot of real work.

    Finally got around to detailing the paint on the 2013 Accord after practicing on 2008 CRV and 2003 Accord:

    Dawn wash
    Clay
    2nd Dawn wash
    Megs UC using LC CCS Orange
    BF TPnS using LC CCS White
    BF WDAFPP using LC CCS Blue

    Pics after WDAFPP (BF CS after WDAFPP cures later tonight or tomorrow)

    Jaddie, I am older than you but I have been exercising on a treadmill to build stamina and lose a little weight.

    I had the fan in the garage going so that helped a lot. I also played with the Rupes 15 and also played with a sample of Sonus Finishing Polish (trying instead on PO85RD). It was not oily like Menzerna and seemed to dry out quickly or did not use enough. I just tried it on one panel a couple times before getting on with the real work with something I knew.

    I still like my Flex...pad never slows down. The Rupes has to run at speed 4 to resist a speed change under pressure but noticed no speed change after speed 5 to speed 6 (not sure if that is bad).

    Does recovering from a 14 hour detail yesterday count?

    Went to Cars & Coffee and another club meet to see customers and network.

    Organized my cleaning supplies cabinet and cleaned the garage floor (meaning I blew all the crap out the doors with the air compressor haha). I ran out of things to clean on my cars so I essentially cleaned cleaning supplies, sad.

    I have a hard time throwing the old stuff out. Even if I have new stuff and am sure the old stuff will never be used again...

    I will let you know but have stuff to trade (Meg`s APC+). I have way to many APC`s and protectants.

    I finished up my car this am.

    • Applied coat of Blackfire Midnight Sun - Menz. Power Lock was quite slick.
    • Cleaned glass with Sprayway (exterior) and Poorboy`s Glass Cleaner (interior)
    • Tires dress with Mother`s Reflections Tire Care
    • Applied Poorboy`s Bold n Bright to wells and windshield cowling
    • Applied Mothers Cleaner Wax to all plastic chrome
    • Applied Mothers Spray Wax to chrome wheels to add bling
    • Clean up Ultima WW+, DP Total Interior Cleaner (used on external platic trim) to mostly remove tape marks and some dust


    I drove it and really like how Blackfire Protectant left the coated leather seats.

    Al I have an official answer to your question about the speed setting and the Rupes from KB:

    Verified through e-mail correspondence with Marco D`Inca, the engineer that designed the BigFoot:

    Kevin:
    "Could you please explain the speed setting dial?
    It is not linear, and although there may be an increase in RPM above 4.5 to 5.0, it is seemingly imperceptible."


    Marco:
    "The speed setting is not linear. What is linear is the RMS voltage output.
    This makes the wheel more sensitive on lower speed settings, and more accurate near the maximum speed settings."


    And there you have it!
    Hope that helps you!
