Only major brewed American brews are twist offs. And cans? Bottled just has a much better taste and flavor, now if it's tailgating or grilling out yeah cans, but then again that's a different type of drinking. Anyone go to World of Beer type places?

I've lived in a hotel room since February. I consider what you're doing a fancy living.

Military life, training between moves. So yeah haha haven't had an oven in months. But hey no rent or mortgage is sweet. That's how I've been able to afford to get into detailing, unfortunately it's hard to use half of it and getting ready to move so probably won't be able to buy much once I move. I'm finishing stocking up now on any last things I want to try.

But it's an experience so I'll enjoy it while I have it, nothing too bad, besides walking 5 minutes to work every day? Absolutely awesome.

I've been working on setting up my sponsored section at another website, and working on my website, so I've been quiet around here lately.

Knowing me, never. I'll keep tinkering with it forever, lol. But both are up in "Serviceable" condition.

To buy Rupes or not to buy rupes that is the question.

The 15'or the 21?

Or spend the money on booze and pull a Roshan.

Seriously though ....... Rupes?

Everything I've read say, don't buy the Rupes as your only polisher. But definitely buy it if you can afford a second polisher.

And go 21. Go big or go home. 5'' pads WILL fit, regardless of what they say. No reason not to go 21. And let me borrow it

It will be my only one and I don't know why...... I just want the damn thing. I was reading a lot today..... A dangerous past time when it's slow at work..... Buff daddy's site says that you can use the bigger backing plate that's on the 21 on the 15 with no issue and vice versa. My biggest issue is weather to hire a pro to get it perfect or try to do it myself. I'm inclined to spend the money on quality stuff one time rather than be disappointed and buy the wrong stuff.

Same with the polish and pads ...... Where to start ......

Go with a Griot's 6'' for your first polisher or a PC, IMHO. Learn on that, because there are some instances of people doing damage with the huge throw of the Rupes. That thing can cut- a lot.

Do it yourself! Much more rewarding and not that hard.

Polishes and pads, you can't go wrong with the Optimum MF system and hyper polishes.

I was in the same boat. After watching NUMEROUS YT vids on detailing, I figured i'd try my hand at it. It's really not hard, just time consuming. The clearcoat on this car isn't that hard and corrects fairly easily. Just take your time and go slow. The tried and true products work very well. Clay/speedy prep, 105/205, ONR, a good sealant, and good wax.

Do it yourself, learn the skill, you'll get the similar results, yes it may take longer but you get the knowledge. I'm in between recommending it over the Flex 3401, for upscale polishers I suppose you could call them, but I have no experience with either. But agreed with above I'd just stick with a Griot's at first.

I just think the Rupes has that want factor since it's the new and shiny, like Blackfire BlackIce.

Polishes just go either Menzerna FG400/SF4000/SF4500 or Optimum Hyper Compound/Hyper Polish.

Pads go microfiber, Meguiar's, Optimum, Buff and Shine (who make 70-80% of the foam pads you see out there)

I think the tried and true M105/205 just has a bit of a higher learning curve than other products.

Although HD's new Adapt which is a compound/polish all in one looks awesome.
