Never mind.., I just follow what you do,
human kind likes to not only understand how something works , but understand what makes it work. Example,, a person knows how a lock works, but I want to see what is inside the lock.

Junkman, that is why I am here, to learn from you. Not trying to compete or judge you.
Man , I want my car to looks like yours,
You are trying to teach me how to fish, and as a result I will eat for life. Thanks man
All the stuff you are asking is detailed within those videos. You say that you don't want to be a student to which I say fine. The only problem with that is you have a lot of questions for someone who does not want to be a student. That's why I keep sending you back to the videos. On You Tube, I don't even bother answering people who don't want to rewatch the videos. I just let them figure it out on their own. You are getting more interaction out of me than I would normally give someone but until you start watching the videos and taking notes, that's going to change.

I've been doing this for years. I can tell who has watched the videos, who has paid attention and who needs to watch them again.

Hi temp products

Hi junkman

i been reading your comments on other people's questions. Even know they are answer a few years back , and I recall you saying, hi temp products are hard to find, just wanted to know if you found any other website , beside topoftheline.com that sells hi temp ht 62, because their shipping cost as much as their ht 62.


Thanks

Ps. I have not asking so many questions because I find many other people asking tons of questions and that helps me very nicely.

Ht 62

Hi junkman

In your video you use a flex with your sealant,

If I use the PC , what number should I use, I am guessing a 2 speed.

Ps, I may have to get the gallon of hi tep 62 , and the shipping still the same as the 32oz, if I do, then I have a life time sealant...lol

What's your opinion Mr. Junkman.

You can use a setting of 3 on the PC to spread your sealant or do it by hand. As long as the coat is thin and even, it doesn't matter. You can also order Hi-Temp's products directly from them via their website.

I called , they want $30 dollars for 32oz, I was talking to a female who seems surprise that someone called her...lol.

I did not ask the price of the gallon , because I if 32oz, is like $30 dollars image the gallon ...lol


Maybe it cost so much, because I am only buying 1 , instead of hundreds.

Update : I called again , talked to a nice gentlemen , he said the price is higher , because of my distance from Nebraska and I am from NY. Therefore 30 dollars + whatever is the shipping. I guess top of the line websicte is cheap .

Update 2:
I bought detail juice 320z. And hi temp 32oz.

32 ounces will last you 200 applications if you apply it right. That stuff goes a LONG way. You apply it in THIN coats and you usually end up only doing 1 coat at a time. I prefer to do it by hand. That one coat is going to last a minute depending on how much you wash your car and how much weather your car is exposed to. So $30 is a bargain considering how much you just bought. You should look at what other sealants are going for..

Damn, Junkman.. you turn up almost everywhere I post.

Great info, as always.

I've been using your 2 bucket method since you showed me years ago, and my paint's still lookin' good.
