    Brad, thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately the local supplier only carries the big fine mist sprayers for the 32 oz bottles and not anything under. I had to buy the finger pump sprayer head separately along with each 4 or 8 oz bottles. I will come up with something in the future to make it more convenient for users, because I too am a consumer, and I understand the fatigue of using it after a while.

    ^nice... Wanted to say I been using meguiar's ultimate wash & wax, it's great, maybe one of the best wash&wax products I've used so far (tried mothers, ice, turtle wax). Now there are "better" washes but those could strip your wax, and whoever waxes their car knows how painful it could be. Downside it's the most expensive product out of all those, still I recommend :thumbsup:

    Re: What did you do today Detailing related?

    A freind recently bought a 01 corvette, and he brought it over to have me examine a defect on the paint. After I found out the rear bumper was resprayed, I decided to test a product on his muffler tips.





    Before

    A lot of soot build up on the inside. Was not very well maintained

    Products used:

    Any comments, questions, or suggestions, feel free to leave a remark. Thank you for viewing.

    I forgot how much time I spent on each tip, but total time came out to be almost an hour. I put the product onto the steel wool and used firm medium pressure to rub it. You can buy the fine grade 0000 steel wool anywhere but if you are in a hurry I picked mine up from O REILYS.



    You will always get some soot build up every time you drive your car, but this is probably a monthly cleaning process.
