  5. Waxing wood

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    Would it be safe to put a thin layer of wax on the wood inside my car? Not as heavy as I would wax the outside, just enough to hide some of the little scratches. I just want to make sure I don't do anything to mess up the finish.

  8. wood panel luster

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    I recently had body work done on my 01 STS as result of an accident. Now the wood console and seemingly all the wood panels have a dull appearance to them including the new shifter knob i put on not 6 weeks ago. Is it possible that heat lamps or what ever they used to fix the car could have...

    Cadillac Detailing and Bodywork - Interior and Ext
    ,,,,,,,,well, OK, just the Simonize for now, I guess. Does anyone besides Turbo and I remember this stuff - more specifically, what was in it to make it so indestructable?

    Informal Lounge, Introductions, General Discussion
    I hand washed the Bimmer this afternoon. I was quite proud of it as it shined in the sunlight. Afterwards, I used Turtle Wax polishing compound on the entire body and went a little overboard.

    The myth of layering. One of the topics talked about when ever I go to an advanced training seminar hosted by one of the big chemical companies is layering.
