            I’ve heard very good things about the Gyeon Q2M Silk Dryer but haven’t gotten around to buying one myself yet.

              You cleaned that in 90 mins? Fuck thats impressive!

              I've got to get a vacuum cleaner. Have just been using a Dyson stick vacuum and without the fancy tools it has fuck all suction. Found a $80 SCA special that has decent reviews (https://www.supercheapauto.com.au/p/...eaner&start=10). Good enough or something else better?

                Costco have a 45 litre Stanley vacuum with a 2.5" hose for $120 odd. I bought one as a shop vac.

                It's changed my ability to clean my car. No blocked hose from crap getting picked up and has the suction ability of a 30 year old hooker.

                  Re: microfiber drying towels; nothing special about them, can just use any old microfibre towel that is clean (if it's full of wax/polish/etc it'll repel water). Unlike an old school chamois, it won't work well when it's dry, so wet it and wring it out first.
                  One with a deeper pile is less likely to scratch when clean, but more likely to get dirt stuck in it which will in turn scratch, so it really comes down to personal preference if you get one with a shallow pile (waffle weave) or one with a deep pile (typically sold as buffing/finishing cloths)

                    Can someone recommend a good product to bring sun-faded black trim back to life?

                    Ideally something which is easy to use in small crevices such as vents/grills rather than bumpers etc.

                    Thanks!

                      I've got the Bowdens Own Mr Black kit and did some test pieces on stuff like the scuttle under the wipers and black plastic trim on the mirrors - works well.

                      I assume there's other similar kits from Gyeon etc etc too.

                            The Youtubers I see that push DIY ceramic coatings like AvalonKing reckon it's the business for faded black plastics.

                            Yeah or nah?

                              I'm not sure it would restore faded plastics, but by all accounts it protects any hard surface.

                              I asked about putting it on my glasses and was told to defo do it though.

                                Any thoughts on ppf? New car coming in a couple months and it's the type of thing that is particularly low and rock prone.

                                I had some recommendations for xpel film but it seems the choice of installer is just as important.

                                My biggest concern is any potential damage when it comes off. Should I wait for the new car paint to "cure" before getting it applied.

                                Any other comments or thoughts?
