Pittman’s VaporWax or else

I have a brother in law who recently opened up his own automotive detail business.  I recently bought a new car and my husband wanted me to let his brother detail it.

I told him ” its a new car! what would he do to it? He said “his brother was the professional and he would let him explain”.

I was a little nervous about having someone learning on my new car and asked him to describe the process.

Right away this “genius of unknown proportions” started talking about claying and buffing the paint with polish and putting a double coat of carnuaba wax on it.

I told my husband right then, “that’s not going to happen”. I already decided I was going the VaporWax acrylic paint conditioner route and the only way he could detail my car was only if he used all non abrasive products. He did and now his business has doubled since he begin to offer acrylic paint condition as an option.

I love my brother in law and I wish him well but I can condition my own car and I do.

I love how easily VaporWax makes my car shine. for me it’s either VaporWax or nothing at all.

Autopia internet forum loses credibility and members

Ridiculous posting on internet web Autopia site causes membership to decline
Members of Autopia expressed unified condemnation of the websites deceptive
Attitude and viral attacks.
All of us were infected. Some say malware others say spy ware but all were viruses that effected our computer Operation and had to be removed.
The management of Autopia was some guy name David Bynon and from
what I hear he had invested in close to a ton of defective wax as part of the deal,
When he originally Acquired the website.
Around about that time VaporWax came on the scene, Bynon was having a hard time Selling his wax and members were complaining that it swirled up on their paint.
Bynon was bleeding money and orchestrated the attack in hopes to discredit VaporWax.
No one there had tried it but the members who had gron to trust Autopia, believed in Dave Bynon.
Now no one trusts them anymore after they lied about VaporWax and infected us
With multiple viruses. David Bynon was so shame he changed his name in the posts and eventually had to sell the site. And offloaded the wax on the new owner who renamed it and is having the same problems.
The new owner foolishly allowed the posting to remain and the senior membership continued to decline. Autopia is a poor excuse for an automotive forum.

Once a respected automotive detail forum,
Autopia has become a running joke. The embodiment of the caveman I was one of those people who looked to Autopia for help when it came to maintenance on my car. I trusted them,
One day a few years back they posted a VaporWax warning on their site.
I find out all these years later Autopia made that post out of fear. They were actually afraid of what a product like VaporWax
could do the their business. The product was everything it claimed to be and the people who ran Autopia knew it, so They attempted to discredit the product to their members
and anyone else who would listen to them, of which I was one.
Now I am both angry and ashamed I listened to the adolescent fools at Autopia.
VaporWax is an incredible product and thanks to KMOD ALR.
I am no longer a caveman governed by fear and belief. I am a individual guided by knowledge and understanding.
Thanks for the reality check ALR.

Headlight cleaning vs resurfacing

How the use of sandpaper effects plastic headlights is a noteworthy subject for anyone who has designs on using that method to remove cloudy oxidation buildup from their headlights.

Once you take a closer look at the process you may also ask the question…
Why would anyone use sandpaper on their headlights?

We understand why a auto detail service would. It is source of generating income for the business and ” It’s not a job the average person would want to do on their car”
Individuals who chose to use abrasives on their own headlights have been convinced there is no other way to do this task. But if you stop and give it some thought and ask your self.
What is the reason you clean anything?
1. To expose the natural surface
Why expose the natural surface?
1. To increase light projection
2. improve the appearance.

In the course of normal use a headlight may become pitted with small scratches and nicks. Under normal circumstances these scratches and nicks have no effect on light projection. This is not a reason people have their headlights cleaned.

In the same course of normal use a headlight may become oxidized and clouded effecting the overall appearance and restricting the amount of light leaving the lens. This is the main reason a individual would seek to clean his or her headlight.

Finally abrasive resurfacing kits and sandpaper will leave a cloud on a lens that can reduce light projection and create a base for oxidation to cling to.

Scraping millimeters of thickness off the outer surface of the lens away by use of abrasives has been a preferred method of detailers in simpler times,
It was a simple 123 process.

1. Sand
2. Polish
3. Seal

Sandpaper would quickly remove the clouded oxidation along with part of the lens surface. It is used in several grades during the resurfacing process.

Polish is necessary to smooth out the rough course surface left by the sandpaper, Polish will strip off more of the lens surface as it wears down the scratches left by the sandpaper.

A Sealer is needed to cover the surface which is left smooth and cloudy by the polish. The sealer will give a smooth shiny appearance by covering up the damage caused by the abrasive cleaning.

Sandpaper has a critical effect on the surface to which it is applied, in this
observation the surface of a plastic headlight is the application looks improved but the reality is the headlight has been damaged beyond repair.
It can damage, destroy and remove the Ultra Violet light protection if the layer is applied to the lens surface.

Sandpaper for oxidation removal is ” didn’t think it out” overkill and should not be used on your modern projector headlight lens.
However like cigarettes and alcohol that are sold with the understanding that even when used as designed can cause damage.
Sandpaper and abrasives cause damage to what they are applied to and it is up to you to make the choice that is in your best interests.
In order to make good choices you need good information,
What is the alternative of abrasive cleaning to remove oxidation?

A non abrasive acrylic lens Deoxidizer
This is the Fastest, safest most efficient way to
remove oxidation from headlights and restore the lens to its most natural appearance.

1. a Deoxidizer removes oxidation on contact
2. a Deoxidizer only effects the clouded acrylic oxidation
3. a Deoxidizer does not require polish or a sealer to cover damage after use
4. a Deoxidizer can safely be used multiple times on the same surface through out the life of the vehicle
5. No tools or special skills are needed to use a Deoxidizer
6. using a deoxidizer is a One Step Process that takes less than a minute
7. a Deoxidizer will not cause damage or alter the surface of the headlight in anyway
8. a Deoxidizer will not remove or harm the Headlights UV protection

Finding sandpaper is very easy, every hardware store carries it, as well as automotive stores and home improvement centers.
Finding a Deoxidizer is also very easy, you can find it on the internet from any place in the world.

Keep in mind that oxidation is a naturally and reoccurring event, there is no known one time treatment that will prevent it’s re occurrence. UV damage is non reversible by any known method.

The “cleaning” process is one that will have to be repeated, multiple times in the future life of the lens

Will you be cleaning your lens or resurfacing it? what you decide can have long range consequence if you choose to resurface instead of clean.

Ancient technology in a modern world

Are you one of those people who are still using paste wax on your car or truck? Why…?

Stand up, brush the dust off your knees, You don’t have to do that anymore,.

You love a beautiful clean shine on your vehicle, most of us do but the United Cavemen Front have been telling us that there is only one way to do that, with elbow grease, wax and an long never ending  assortment of wax support products. Over Kill  by modern standards.

These guys don’t see the light of day long enough to learn anything new. They are obsessed with their ancient ways, they find safety in numbers within their Internet forums.

None have had a problem with unleashing a verbal assault on you at any given time during a conversation where you disagree with their teachings.
You wanted a better easier way to keep a shine on your vehicle that did not involve the laborious maintenance required with wax.
You won’t get help from the cavemen, they fortify their caverns against all things new.

They have only recently made a truce with the god lightning. They brandish their power buffers in his honor.
Few of us are impressed. Science introduced the glaze, a liquid substance that was wiped onto the car and allowed to dry into a haze before being wiped off.
The result was a long lasting shine that withstood washings and held it’s shine, did not yellow or require buffing, It did not flake or produce as much waste but it did no better on rubber or vinyl than wax, It left a white residue on these things.
One of the first glazes was “Astro Shield”. It was a great DIY product, however it disappeared almost as suddenly as it appeared,  Today’s equal is NU Finish.
As good as new finish is the  cavern dwellers gather against it in internet forums.
Its not to their advantage for you to have technology that allows you to circumvent their ancient rituals.

What you expect from a cavemen? They haven’t invented a thing since the wheel.

Glazes were the answer for many of us, in particular NU Finish by name.
The one thing NU Finish lacked was the ability to become invisible once applied vinyl or rubber parts.

Unlike wax which has multiple draw backs, this was the Achilles heal for Nu Finish, its only obvious weak point.
Liquid water based spray waxes was the wax companies response to the quick shine fix.  The cavemen didn’t like this either but accepted it over the non wax glazes.
Water based spray wax presented the ability to put a quick short lived shine. However it offered no protection or benefits to the paint.

There ought to be a law prohibiting cavemen from gathering in public forums. They tend to make the loudest objections against modern science.

You would think, with all the knuckle dragging it would be difficult for them to type.

Elbo Greif

Innocent individuals who want the facts so they can make an informed opinion are left in a cloud of confusion after being bombarded with reinforced rhetoric spewed upon them by the self serving cavern dwellers of the Internet detail forums.
If you are confused or a victim of conflicting information, you should acknowledge certain facts about finding something on the Internet.
1. No one solution is right for everyone
2. Change should be expected and resistance is known to follow.

When the opposition comes from the masses, the masses could still be wrong. when it comes

from one source it probably is wrong but could very well be right.
There is no known science to apply, you have to use common sense and judgement based on your understanding of what you read and how it applies to you.
Ancient technology belongs in the museum so when you find yourself being bombarded with caveman science, step back take a breather and try something new.
You might find the experience enlightening or just so so but you will have added experience to apply to what you read afterwards and enjoyment of becoming an self confident individual with a informed opinion.

What not to do to a cars painted finish

It never endsThere is an art to keeping your car looking its best.

There are do’s and dont’s.

Preserving a finish requires different approach than restoring one.

The mentality of a person focused on preservation is quite the opposite of one who’s focus is to restore.
Preservationist understand the necessity of restoration products and their place.

They won’t care one way or the other that you wax your car, They understand some people need wax, Their paint is so bruised from past waxing, polishing and claying, it needs wax like a old woman needs makeup.

There is an understanding Preservationist have that makes it easy to determine when a product is designed to restore a finish and when one is designed to preserve one.

For example water will help preserve a finish polish will help restore a finish.

On the other hand people who use restoration products on everything don’t seem to have a clue.

They do not understand the concept of preserving the cars finish, They want to “fix it”, make it better.
