    I posted this: (Which Scott found particularly funny over on Autopia)

    http://www.detailingbliss.com/forum/f5/mixology-101-part-1-art-mixing-5160.html

    Making fun of myself, Asphalt Rocket and some other members who got in a heated debate earlier in the week.

    Which lead to this:

    http://www.detailingbliss.com/forum/f5/closing-thread-mixology-101-a-5204.html

    Which lead to this:

    http://www.detailingbliss.com/forum/f5/there-extra-disclaimer-were-not-seeing-5205.html

    Which may lead to my bannianation over there at "Bliss".

    :ugh:

    this your first time visiting another detailing board? i haven't even read it, and i'm sure it's someone pussy hurt over someone else not liking the products someone is using, or crying because some hack uses woolite to clean leather.

    So what did you mean by "some hack uses woolite to clean leather".. Scottwax does, is he a hack?

    I've never done it but given it thought, seems to be no issue to those who condone it.

    no, it's an old joke. TH001 on autopia called scott a hack awhile back b/c he uses woolite instead of some uber leather cleaner. TH001 (Todd) is also a Zaino elitist.

    so no, i'm not taking a dig at scott. i have high regards for him and his work. just old jokes and fun.

    Damn Hacks. ;)

    I'm a Zaino Zealot, probably not an Elitist though.

    Todd actually called me and apologized. I think after he put together a huge thead about using Leatherique (which is a pretty involoved process which he can charge a lot for) that a thread about leather cleaning using Woolite/water was in his mind messing with his potential business since I am sure he gets business off autopia like I do. Probably didn't want competing views, especially since one is available at a much lower cost.

    I got a similar response from Josh Vette over something pretty minor and he went off big time in a thread. He got raked over the coals pretty good about it too. The response I got from Tort was:

    I really don't understand why people get so worked up over detailing.

    I can't figure him out. If he's French Canadian he can be forgiven (or not) for his atrocious spelling and grammar. If he's just a 'dork as bitch', then well.. fuck no wonder.

    Oh yeah, Todd actually isn't the Zaino elitist everyone thinks he is. The main Zaino detailer in his area retired and Todd saw an opportunity to take over that segment of business. He actually isn't all that thrilled with the layering process after spending 10+ hour correcting paint. He'd rather spend 30 minutes putting on Prime and Acrylic Jett than 2 hours with an alcohol/water wipedown, mixing ZFX and then putting 3 layers on the car. But since people are willing to pay a premium...

    I actually met Todd down in Orlando in March when I was down there for a week. He's actually a pretty cool guy, at least IMO.

    well, minus well capitalize if the opportunity is there. I don't have any hate for the guy, and actually thought it was pretty decent of him to call and apologize. i just think it shows a little lack of respect for other's methods. We're all in this for the same final goal: clean up a customer's car.

    Yeah, I'm sure it is working out as well for y'all as it is for me. :sad2:

    I do have a few insanely hot MILF customers but I am nowhere near the income bracket it would take to lure them away from their husbands. Last Friday, one of my customer's wife answered the door in a tank top and running shorts. She has some really hefty chesticles and incredible runner's legs. :yum:

    that's pretty much the reason i'm active here, mod that other board, and lurk on autopia (rarely) and caraudio.com.

    Nica is in Calgary, which is a medium-sized city of about 1,000,000 people in southern Alberta. Quebec is where about 90% of the French-Canadian population resides (the bulk of the remainder is in northern Ontario and New Brunswick). Quebec and Alberta are about 2,000-3,000 miles apart. To put that in perspective, driving from Madrid in Spain to Minsk in Belarus (near Russia and the far Eastern border of Europe) is about 3,446 KM. To drive from Calgary, AB to Quebec City, Quebec is 3,848 KM.

    Here's a labeled map of Canada:

    EDIT: I should probably add that I believe Nica's moderation leaves something to be desired.

    I cannot stand Asphalt Rocket. He caused me to almost drive to his house and got me banned from Autogeek by digging up some shit on me.
    Yep......I was in porn before. Not the gay shit either! LOL!
