      thanks matty. Will a good APC do the same?
      The thing that you do, after your day job, in your free time, early in the morning or late at night. The thing you read about, write about, think about, fantasize about. that thing you do alone and theres no one to impress, nothing to prove, no money to be made, simply a passion to pursue. Thats it, thats your thing, thats your heart , your guide, Thats the thing you must, must do.

        Yeah, APC works really good.

        I use simple green APC, good stuff this one.

          Excuse my Ignorance but how do you use the APC ( I have the big daddy bottle of that simple green) but haven't busted it out yet......

          Do you just spritz it on and wipe off? water it down %? put it in wash bucket and do normal wash?.....Sorry No IDEA here!

            Yeah, I got the 4L bottle. Great value!

            You can mix it up 20% - 50% strength in a spray bottle, spray it on, leave soak, then hose it off. I just use it in the foam lance.

            The stronger you mix it, the more you risk stripping your LSP. Not a bad thing if you are going to polish or apply wax again.

                  I got simple green APC 4L from a local RC car place for $25! You can get the 2L bottles from bunnings, but they charge about $20....

                  Don't forget about washing up detergent for these jobs too!

                    I use Morning Fresh to get rid of waxes and LSPs prior to paint correction

                    Cheap and effective. Just don't let it dry on the panels

                      I just leave it on, even strong APC wash doesn't get rid of some wax and sealants and don't like washing a car with dish washing detergent
