ok so do you ever sand the car with the finest grit available and then do this or is that not necessary?

I had no clue those had a boxer. A very early fuel injection from what I just read. interesting....
I skipped right over 914 thinking it was an inline tragedy waiting to happen. Is that a 6 cyl model? or flat four ?
Nicer setup for the boxer, it would be quite a launcher.
looks great whatever it has got!

if eccentric and billionare went with my pathetic life , that car with an original flat four would have an offer of $500,000 dollars by my own thinking of what real sports cars are to park in my garage of infamy.

Oh.. can't forget the $700,000 I would offer for a 1987 Subaru gl with a carb and dual range.... I did say I was theorizing my own thinking

Beautiful car, I hope it stops in time in mint condition for many years to come. A REAL four cylinder in a REAL sports coupe, super cars are mimicking the appearance of to this day.

if it's detergent based it's bad for paint, so no i am not spreading bad information...SHOW ME HOW I AM SPREADING MISINFORMATION Link it up and i will eat my words, i am a detailer and iirc you are too you should know that anything detergent based is bad(that's one of the first things you learn)

powerwashing a regular wash(car wash soap) and claybar are what's good before waxing my friend....

i was always told to use DAWN dish soap to remove all old wax and stuff on the paint...

good or not good, to late now, i have been using it for 4 years and never a problem..all my cars look great!

dawn is not something i use often, maybe once or twice a year...at most

yah i'm just kinda peeved he was saying i was spreading bad info, because it is bad for the paint. I suppose if you aren't using it often at all it couldn't be so bad. I have never heard of using dawn as a prep for waxing.

I am no way trying to say anything bad about you or your car, you are the man on here tweet imo; so don't get it twisted

its not really bad for paint, detergent based or anything, its worse on plastic trim/moldings/uncleared wheels (bare metal)

Thats funny you've never heard of dawn, the biggest wax test in the world used it before prep, and Zaino Brothers (best sealants in the world) recommends it before applications

"3. I would definitely recommend you remove the wax buildup on your paint. Just use Liquid Dawn (hand dishwashing liquid) as a car wash. It has a high alkaline content which cuts right thru carnauba wax, paraffin, silicone oils, etc. This will get your paint finish squeeky clean and wax free.

I don't advise making a habit of washing your car with Dawn. But for this scenario it's fine. High alkaline products like Dawn are tough on polishes. It will never harm the paint finish though. A car wash is made specifically to clean without removing durable polishes."

http://www.zainostore.com/Merchant2/...de=APPLICATION

Dont get it twisted bro, straight from the guy who wrote the detailing game.

Tweet, if you were closer id show you how to really polish that thing, good looks!

Dish Soap? Boo to you. After all the work you use dish Soap. Looks good but that stuff will ruin the paint.
