    I finally used the product after it sat for several weeks waiting for me on the bench. Good stuff!

    I Clayed my Corvette a few times back when I first got it - really amazing when combined with a good polish.

    i tried that "hot rims". Surprised at how well it worked.
    thought my chrome spokes were clean & bright before.....not so! But very bright now.
    (However, the warning spray off with water in 15 sec. Max did give pause for thought.)

    good stuff.

    Thx for the tip, Rick, I'll try that.

    I am very satisfied with the Meguiar M7 mirror glaze & G12718 NXT generation tech wax 2.
    (their product names sounds more like software upgrades rather than car polish, but they seem to work well).

    Also the Meguiar pricing will not break the bank.

    If you find yourself going through a lot of it, it may be worth considering buying in bulk. They have an equivalent product in their professional Detailer line.

    It's sold as a concentrate in gallon jugs. A gallon feels pricey at first. But once you dilute it the cost per ounce is much lower.

    Welcome to the fold.

    Yeah, pretty much everybody who tries clay starts out "what the heck is that about?" and ends up "where have you been all my life!?" Wonderful stuff.


    Just to add a couple tips for those who haven't tried it yet,

    If you drop it on the floor, throw it away IMMEDIATELY. Don not ever, ever, EVER try to re-use it after it's been dropped on the floor. You will scratch the heck out of your paint.

    With that in mind, when you first open the package to use it, tear the bar into two pieces and set one aside. If you drop one you can toss it and keep working.

    Don't be tempted to use both sides of the clay pancake before kneading it. At first you might think you'll save time when you just flip it over to keep working. But you'll end up wasting a whole lot more time kneading it to expose fresh clay. If you use only one side, all you have to do is fold it once to expose fresh clay.

    That is now on my list for this weekend. Been looking for such a product.

    I was told that the English cars required a certain amount of carbon buildup to properly seal things, and detergent oil would remove that and cause oil consumption.
    well after 2 months and about 300 miles, she's still leaking some ( when oil is warm). So, so far the Liqui Moly "Oil Saver" has offered no noticeable improvement.

    I'm assuming Triumphs are the same in this regard: when I worked at a BMC dealership back in the day, we only used NONDETERGENT oil. (Valvoline 30, actually.)

    Braking is as good or better.
    i bled the clutch line again.
    saw no crude. The clutch is working well, but it does catch 1st gear kind of early....not sure what to make of that, until I talk to some of my local club members.

    Follow up note on the Slip Plate Lubricant.
    it has remained in the rear springs for more than a year now.
    viscosity seems about the same. No squeaks.
    results are good. I recommend

    Just a follow up on the facet fuel pump:
    it failed after a coup,e of months. Moss issued a full credit & I replaced it (using the same location) with a cylindrical pump that has worked fine for more than a year. The revolution fuel pump controller has also worked flawlessly.

    Well no takers on Craiglist, so I'm putting it to use.
    replacing the rubber brake hoses with stainless steel braided.
    the Quickjack is ideal for this type of work.
    raises quickly & to the right height, stable, allows acces to all wheel wells at once without repositioning.

    Went for an hours drive, & after 10 minutes forgot all about the new seats....pretty good sign.

    I'm still waiting on those ss brake hoses from TRF a month later.
    but I can say the ss clutch hose replacement, has made for a firmer, more responsive clutch ( could be the Dot5 conversion had some positive effect also)

    While performance may have improved, (or at least stayed the same).
    the small flange oil leak is still there.
    however the "motor oil saver " label does state " works over a few hundred kilometers". Not there yet.

    Same tires on my eType. TR looks great BTW
  20. GTP1960's Avatar

    just a BTW: I was able to sell my old wheels and tires thru BCF classified.( Panjo). I have not sold anything on line, before, but It was a simple process & went smoothly.(took about two weeks).
    I think the fee was about $20.00.
    **i should have priced the shipping cost exactly, before I listed the ad, because my guesstament was off by $18.00. but at least the old set has found a new home & out of my garage!
