I would like to see if you could get the proper dilutuion ratio thread to show the pictures again. That is the only thread that I have found to have red X's for all pictures. I'm technically new because i never post, but I have just been reading everything on here for probably 6-7 months and have been registered for a few months. I just never post. I own a 2004 black Lexus IS 300 that I bought brand new in 2004. I would be interested in that thread though if anyone could fix it, thanks guys.

How to properly dilute our Detailer Products in our OSHA approved Secondary Bottles

There's been some confusion as to how to properly mix our concentrated products in our Professional Detailer Line and we hope the pictures below will serve as a visual explanation as to how much water to add to the secondary bottle followed by how much concentrated product to add to get the proper dilution.

In this example we will show how to properly dilute D10101 All Purpose Cleaner (http://www.meguiars.com/?detailer-engine-degreasers-car-cleaners/All-Purpose-Cleaner).



The bottle below is now filled to the dilution level mark with water.



Now take your bottle of water and pour in the concentrated product until the solution reaches the seam or ridgeline formed into the upper portion of the bottle.





Remember to replace the cap on the concentrate and affix the appropriate spray head to the Secondary Bottle.

We hope this helps...

Alright...as far as I can tell, thats how it went. I think you can get the basic idea though.
