Meguairs is so awesome... I bought my g110 through ebay and it died on me in June I contacted them and even though it had no warranty or numbers on it, they still took it back and sent me a new g110v2.. same machine but with all the bugs worked out.

I thought he only does rotary? I know the little "kevin brown method" is supposed to be for rotary. I'll have a G110v2 tutorial up soon

A really good set of resources for detailing the interior is the carpet cleaning industry. My first real job was a janitor in an airport where I learned to "bonnet clean" carpets. That was 38 years ago and I have adapted the knowledge to auto/rv interiors with great success! Most of us have a rotary buffer and some even a dual action one. Add a soft bristled brush with velcro backing and you have an awesome carpet/fabric detail machine! Using the right chemicals,( I use an encapsulate), you can get great results on a variety of fabrics and carpets for just pennies! I'll be posting more later and maybe post a vid link to help the DIY'ers.

I've used this stuff on my V for years. Their buffer,compounds and polishes really do wonders.
