Hey,

I saw that someone ask you what cleaner you use on your dash? You listed a few products but non of them I can find here in Canada. Can you recommend a few more products to use on the dash?

Lots of places here carry products like Meguiars, Turtle wax, Armor all, and Mothers. Not the best choices but if anyone knows a good product i can use let me know.

Thanks,

If I had to choose an off the shelf interior detailer it would be Meguiars Ultimate Interior Detailer. Hope this helps @ARTI

I spent the day today doing mine. Desperately needed it after this winter. White paint was covered in those tiny yellow "rust" dots.

Then I tried to spread it with a tire brush and I ended up with brush marks. I also tried a tire sponge, but I couldn't get it into the grooves of my side lugs. I'm probably doing it wrong. Please help.

I also tried Griot's spray which went on beautifully, but I had tire sling for days.

So far the best product I've used has been Meguiar's Hot Foam spray, but I still get sling.

May I please have some tips on doing this? I'm aiming for a glossy or semi-glossy look that doesn't look brushed on and doesn't sling.

I here you on the Adams tire shine. Great product that lasts and has good shine but is a bit of a pia to apply due to consistency. Here is what I do with mt tires. Shake the bottle very well. Spray liberally. Brush the lugs with a boars hair lug brush (very soft and does not leave brush marks) I would think a soft paint brush would also work. Spray some tire shine on an old microfiber. Wide down and blend the smooth part of the tire into the lugs. If you want to try something else. Give Chemical Guys Silk a try or a couple coats of 303. To reduce sling, I try and do my tires when I am not going to be driving for a while. Good luck!

Call Adam's customer service. You may have a bad sprayer. They stand behind their %110 guarantee!

Question About Griot's DA Polisher

Just bought a new Griot's DA polisher.

When I turn it on, it starts slow and ramps up to full speed in a few seconds. When I turn it off I hear a bit of a grinding noise (sounds like a bad bearing). It that normal?

The "soft start" is normal, they are supposed to do that. However, the grinding noise is definitely not supposed to be there.

I just went out in the garage and listened to mine, and it does not sound like that. Pull the backing plate off and make sure the C-clip did not come loose during shipping. This happened to my smaller Griots 3" DA and I had to resit the C-clip.

Hope that helps.

C-clip is still in place. Now that I listened more carefully, the sound is coming from inside the the main body of the unit (above the black housing).
