    Ahh, thanks Dave, I know now what I've been doing incorrectly all these years. Wait till get my hands on GNAT to give it a full detailing.

    The only question I have is where does one find the various grades of buffing material used in the video?

    That's kinda the way Griot's recommends doing it. Having the headlights on sure helps to better see the remarkable progress being made.

    When you consider how many drivers aren't even aware of the need to check their oil level occasionally, it's not hard to believe some will take this video seriously.

    I was waiting for him to get his beard wrapped up in the buffer. Perhaps we will see that in future episode?

    I haven't seen all the videos yet but I'm pretty sure the grinder is for removing those bothersome little chips out of the windshield.

    I must be using the wrong kind of dirt. Mine didn't turn out as good as his.
