    Any car detailers out there? Best wax...

    Spring is here and its time to wax the cars. I was wondering if there was any DTTer's out there who possibly detail for a living and what products they are using? I am looking for something that can be applied by hand not machine (polisher).

    Painting Gurus!! Tips on setting up my HVLP guns?!?!

    Old car hoods work great for setting up the gun for proper spray pattern. One thing I hope some of the painters out there can answer is the turbine vs. compressor driven HVLP systems. I have an older Graco unit that works great and runs off of dedicated turbine in the unit. The air line the...
