    Not sure if that small machine would be able to coverup entire Linea without getting over heated :p And does it comes with 5-`10 meters of wire along with it ?

    Yup, thats what i thought. Even the store owner wasnt very convincing in his selling of the item. It does have a 10 mtr wire with it. So din go for it. But for 650 it looked charming, thats why i was askin if nyone has tried it and how it works :)

    Do I polish before applying wax

    I have a query. While browsing through internet I found many people advising the followingsteps for Waxing.
    Washing--> polishing--> waxing. But it was mentioned in this thread that polishing may take some layer of paint in long run. I am confused. I have done paint protection coating(PPC) by 3M so if I do waxing will it affect the second PPC?

    Waxing with pure wax i.e. Without polishing agent won't harm. The process you mentioned is right buT polishing is not advised frequently. Whereas waxing can be done every month also.

  9. Re: DIY - CAR CARE

    I have used 3m liquid wax but you'll loose shine after 7-10 days. I heard baout Turtle Wax Platinum Precision Wax but i haven't experimented with it.
