    When you used it in wheel wells, did it attract dirt/mud/dust? I've thought about utilizing it on those areas as well as nerf bars(just not on step parts) but wasn't too sure.
    You can look on Superior's website and they have it on there. Shipping may get ya though. Also more expensive on their website https://superiorproducts.com/

    No sir, nothing out of the ordinary. It made the regular dirt easy to rinse off also.

    So....speaking of things along these lines.....what about bedliner? I don't want to shine/grease it up, but clean it up and take the dullness out. Suggestions?

    I've seen that, but hard to justify spending that much on my bedliner thats usually under a bed cover, but also i use mine for all kinds of stuff that'll dirty it up. how's the longevity of it under "pressure"?

    There’s some rejuvenator spray that came with some of our trucks. I never used mine, but @NewImprovedRon said it worked very well. Unfortunately the bottle didn’t have any brand or numbers on it, and I don’t have the bottle anymore. Maybe the Toyota dealership sells it, or an auto parts house.

    I had tried using mine after sitting in the cabinet for a few months and it wouldn't come out. Was clogged and when I opened it, it was all messed up/broken down. I put a little bit that I could in a small spot and it seemed to do well, but yes, no name/numbers/code/etc. on it.

    That is one of the few Shine Supply products I haven’t used, but it looks similar to Reload. I haven’t actually applied anything to mine, outside of a spot with Adams Spray Ceramic. I wouldn’t recommend that for any situation.

    Looking on Google, there seems to be a good variety of options, but not sure what works best. Rhino has a product called Rhino Shine that’s made for it, but it wasn’t available on Amazon. Solution Finish would probably work well, but that would be expensive.

    Considering how I use mine sometimes for things like wood/rock/mulch/dirt, I may end up just attaching the 4" bristle brush head to my drill and do a good cleaning/scrubbing on it. I'd also hate to put anything on it that could either fade it more with chemicals, or make it greasy/slippery.

    I use the little flat one on my tires to do a good scrub/clean on them and it's made it easier. have to be careful of course to not hit on your wheels and potentially scratch them.

    I’ve used this on my bed liner and it worked great.

    Honestly, I'd swing by Dick's or Academy. It's kind of the end of their season, so they may have them on clearance. I went by Dick's once and got a 12x12 for around 40 or 50. I prefer my 10x10 because it's more rigid and a bit easier to set up solo, but it works well. Remember that 12x12's are usually set up with angled legs, so if getting close to your vehicle or wanting to tilt it, it will be something to consider.

    I recently got this one, but have barely used it, so can’t speak to the quality.
    I can say it’s pretty portable for being a larger unit, and shouldn’t be too difficult to load in and out of the truck. I was easily able to load and unload it when I picked it up. I would have gone smaller, but needed to fit the requirements for my Tornador.

    Would there be an issue with doing a paint correction over several days? I work and go to school full time so I am having trouble finding time where I can just focus on working on my truck. I figured I could wash a panel each night for the next couple of days and polish it. This way I spread out the job over the next couple of days. Once it’s finished I will seal and wax. I figured the sealing and wax process doesn’t take all that long (except for the wait time for the power lock sealant) so I would do that Process on the same day.let me know your thoughts!

    I have done a few projects spread over a few days. It makes it a little more difficult and you have to duplicate some steps, especially depending on weather and how much you drive but sure, it's fine to do that.

    Shouldn’t be an issue. If it goes for too many days I’d consider applying sealant on each panel as you finish it.

    Carpro just announced a new chrome polish sealant I believe? I love all carpro products, definitely get what you pay for

    I have only used this a little, since the grill on my wife’s old Sequoia was the only chrome I had on anything, but it seemed to work well. Got it at Walmart.

    Part of me thinks these numbers are going to be skewed based on the fact that 97% of people, including myself before I joined the forums, doesn't know of brands and products other than Meg's, turtle wax, mother's. Stuff you find at large box stores and auto parts stores

    Someone made a similar comment on there. For instance, Meg’s Gold Class was the top soap, but pro detailers don’t use it. It’s a decent soap, but nowhere in the league of Reset.

    So I'm kind of curious how well this will work. I have been using their Hybrid Ceramic Wax in the blue spray bottle and have been pretty happy with it. This is more of a coating, and doesn't enhance paint like the waxes do. But I may try this at some point. Even considered their new Ceramic coating they introduced. SEMA 2019 they released these 2020 items. I believe hit stores in early 2020. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5rNobaGduY

    I love the idea of a glass coating which lasts for years rather than weeks. Has anyone had any experience with https://www.glassparency.com/ and can comment? It's expensive, but if it lasts as long as a pro-ceramic coating (3+ years) it would be worth the money to me. Having trust issues, I don't want to go in blind... lol
