Agreed some of these guys think they have detailing super powers when in fact, we all have two hands.

Take the people on here with a grain of salt. Once there was a rendering of a 2015 mustang and a bunch of people complained it looked too much like an Aston Martin and too European. When I said it was progressive and that people said the same about the c5 corvette when it was introduced... I was basically told that what I said was the stupidest thing they ever heard and I was "retarded". I don't mean the "cosmetic maintenance" forum specifically but if assholes could fly, camaro5 would be an airport....

Well as someone who has no detailing superpowers this thread has at least made me chuckle this morning so thank you to everyone involved.

I'm definitely in the obsessive/compulsive camp and can't even wash my car in 45 minutes - so to be able to polish an entire care in 45 minutes blows my mind. You must have been running around the car!

I'm sure there's some happy medium where I should be able to let some things go or accept less than my best attempt at perfection but I just can't. Perfection is the enemy of good enough - and good enough is entirely dependent on an individuals perspective. OP like you said, your friends car is probably looking as good as it ever will and he should be thankful for any charity work.

I am very compulsive as well. But I don't act as if I am the world's greatest detailer......

And I don't think anyone in here actually replies with the intention of trying to tick someone off or show someone else up. If they do well there's the door.

I agree take everything with grain of salt. I commented on a thread here about using "soft scrub" to clean my tires from time to time and did I ever hear about that. Whatever works for us might not work for others.

I do appreciate all the advice on products and techniques though.

So Mahalo to everyone for that.

Good point although it's not how you think, its how some of us act.

Sometimes it seems like people do have the intention to show others how little they know compared to someone who prides themselves on compulsive detailing.

Basically try to make themselves feel better than the average detailer.

I completely agree about some of the peanut gallery, it definitely gets old always having your posts questioned by the detailing almighty...but keep them coming bro!
X 2 Glenn, I always enjoy your threads on THT as well!!
