    Re: *New* Meguiar's D151 Paint Reconditioning Cream Review!!!

    Wow, Mike Phillips, Tom Weed and Justin30513 - Thanks guys! I had sorta started to get my flame suit on thinking I'd get nailed for telling it like I saw it but you guys made my whole week. I think back on when I started detailing, I wanted to try everything, I wanted the best of the best, I believed everything in the sales description in the on-line stores and I wanted my customers to be so wow'd that they'd be willing to advertise for me. Yes, I was a big dummy! I soon learned that a high price doesn't guarantee the best product, that nobody cares if the underside of the hood is waxed on a daily driver or the backside of the tire is dressed.

    Quote:
    Evaluate the customer first, then the paint. Don't sell show car detailing work to a person using their car as a daily driver. Understanding this is key to making your customer happy as well as you, not too mention it will keep you from burning out.

    I printed that out and have it framed - best advice I've ever heard!

    So true! I had close to the same quote on my desk when I was in the car business. Qualify, qualify, and then qualify!

    It's has not been posted yet that it's shipping, so for right now no one can get any. We should know more very soon.

    As for getting it in Canada, you may have to find an alternative way.

    Re: *New* Meguiar's D151 Paint Reconditioning Cream Review!!!

    I live in Ottawa, Canada and order supplies from Rick at ADS.. he ships it UPS to the UPS store in Ogdensburg and I drive down pay the lady 5 bucks and bring it back.

    I declare the shipment at the border pay my taxes and go on my way.

    Even with paying for shipping and driving down it is well worth the effort. For example NXT 1.0 from Crappy Tire is 29.95.. NXT 2.0 from ADS along with two microfiber towels is 14.95 ( I consider the exchange almost even now).. pretty good deal

    Rick gives outstanding service at reasonable prices.. that is how I and my friends get products into Canada.

    ADS is located in Phoenix, AZ. It isn't a chain of stores.

    Wise words...I'll have to remember that.
