wow! 95-850 wagon, you put my giant box of detailing stuff to shame. But, I don't have a clue to what I am doing. I just sing my arms like an ape and buy what I knock over.




Not a huge fan of tire dressing. And I have 2 boxes of green tire tint (glitter) WTF!

I think I am going to only buy Zymol as I run out o this stuff.


The best way to find out how junky something is, is to post pics.

I've used Wizards polish in the past, really, really good stuff; but I thought they had gone out of business. Found their detailer at Rural King recently, good stuff. Nice shine and leaves a super slick surface.

Do you mean 6 gallons or is that a Portland thing?

It's a PDX thing, that's 1 gallon of Llama conditioner/bong deodorizer, so it's not included in the overall quantity.

For stage 1 paint/no clear is this the best way to go about cleaning it:

1)Wash/Dry
2)Claybar
3)Compound(ill be using Meguiars UC) Edit: After some research Meguairs #7 instead?
4) Wax???

I do everything by hand;buffers kind of scare me


edit: trial by fire

Default Wheel Restoration

To avoid creating a new thread, I figured I'd post here.

I'm getting ready to completely re-finish a set of BBS RS 740 (BMW Style 42), and would love to hear from folks who have already walked the path of wheel refurb.

Best I can tell from the interwebz treasure trove of information, it seems most folks either use Jasco Premium Paint Stripper, Kleen Strip, or WM Barr Aircraft Paint Remover. Is there any practical difference between these, or any other strippers that have been successful for others here?

I forgot my password to the OP account.

Maybe a moderator can add the pics in?

I've had the most success with the Aircraft Stripper. Nasty stuff though, no fun to work with. Protect yourself and work outside, it WILL burn your skin. A plastic scraper is good for peeling the clear off.

It's been a while since I've used it, but I seem to remember it being Tal-Strip at the time. I've got a jug of the Klean-Strip version on the shelf but haven't used it.

It's going to be all about the sanding. Any polish you get will only be as good as your time spent sanding. Condition of the lips will determine how rough you need to start and how much work it will take to get things flat. Also you can only get so much of a polish by hand, once you're at the actual polishing stage. A buffing wheel makes a world of difference, and will get you a deeper shine than any hand rub or drill will. Bit of a learning curve but not bad. I paid like $35 for one from HF.

Thank you. That's the one that most folks (online) seem to say is best, with Jasco a close second.

I've heard either is pretty nasty stuff - no touchy the skin.

Once the paint/clearcoat is stripped I'll dive into filing/sanding to see if I will need any filler (and go the paint route on the barrels) or if I think they will be good for polishing. Fingers crossed for polishing
I'll be painting/clearcoating the centers.

On that note, is Wurth's the best out there? I have seen folks using/recommending DupliColor as well.

I've used a handful of carpet cleaners, this stuff is my new favorite.

Default SEM Black Paints

Getting ready to do some painting of 240 dash pieces. Will be doing all black and I have always been fond of SEM paints.

My question is for those of you who have chosen either SATIN or FLAT BLACK. I don't want things too shiny of course.

I see SEM offers a few blacks in their Color Coat for Plastic & Vinyl Flexible Coatings. http://www.tcpglobal.com/Automotive-...or-Card-Chart/ I see a Landau Black. Don't know what that is. Maybe it's their flat black, since I don't see a flat black in that product.

Thanks, Dave B

Ok, so it appears Landau Black is not a flat or matte black. Those pics look like it has more gloss than the satin black things I've sprayed. I have found one description saying Landau Black is suitable for vinyl tops.
