  1. Welcome Julio! You know what's up using Rinseless wash on those black vehicles! I use H20 G&G as part of a Rinseless wash to make it less steps. Adam's Interior Detailer is a light cleaner and protection - Perfect for maintained cars, and even those are are not too bad. As for glass cleaning, most on here will recommend Adam's Brilliant Glaze for cleaning inside, non-tinted, windows. It helps keep hazing to a minimum.
  2. I have a clay towel, but it is the same principal as the clay mitt. I ONLY use the clay alternatives (towel, mitt, pad on a DA) if I am polishing the car, as they are not as mild as the fine clay bar. For a decontamination of the coating, I would recommend a clay bar.
  3. Be VERY careful when working with headliners - anything harsh can loosen the adhesive. Apply the cleaners to a microfiber towel or a soft bristle brush and work the area with minimal pressure. It make take a few tries to get the stains out of the headliner, but it will avoid the need to have it replaced.

    Welcome JD, and congrats on starting you journey into detailing!
  5. First off Welcome! I would also recommend using Adam's Car Wash Shampoo for maintained wheels. To make it easier, I keep some premixed in a bottle with a foaming sprayer, and refill from my wash bucket when needed. For a little more cleaning power step up to APC mixed 50/50 with water.
  6. When you cannot find a clean 'side' to work with or it is full of contaminates.

    Yum Jen. And BTW, I just deciphered your user name! 😀
  8. Not sure what you tried, but a few more aggressive suggestions: Razor blade with lubrication (DS, GC, Waterless Wash, or even Rinseless wash at wash strength in a spray bottle) Steel wool with lubrication Polishing like paint
  9. Welcome Bob! What are you getting shiney?
  10. Welcome Brandon! If you are looking for a faster method to clean a somewhat dirty car, Rinseless wash is your friend. If the car is street driven and has a good LSP on it, you can wash & dry it in 20-30 minutes, including the wheel faces, and only use 3 gallons of water.
  11. First off Welcome Bill! Nothing special about caring for this vehicle, other than using a step stool or work platform for the roof. Check out the 'FAQS' in the Washing, Drying, and Decontamination thread. But if you have specific questions, ask away - there are lots of helpful, friendly folks on this forum.
  12. Welcome to Adam's Forums, and sweet rides!

    Welcome Matt!
  14. Welcome to Adam's Forums! Black vehicles are a lot of work, but Rinseless washes can help cut down on the time needed to clean them.
  15. It was warm enough that it dried up very quickly. And yes, it is a 1912 Race car that I have posted a few shots of on here. One day the owner will let me do a full write up on it! When I wash out car in the garage it only leaves the amount of water that you get if you pulled the car from from a drive in the rain.
  16. Agreed! I have done this many days when the weather did not cooperate. My best indoor wash was inside an airplane hangar before a DuPont Registry event where the client's car was the featured attraction.
  17. I would try Revive, as Brandon suggested. My next step up the aggressiveness ladder would be Brilliant Glaze (it has come solvents in it that may help with this), and finally machine polishing with Finishing Polish. Also checkout this thread in the The Adam's Detailing Library - Caring for Factory Vinyl Stripes
  18. I will sometimes added the clay part into my Rinseless process. Wash the panel, spritz with clay lube (I use diluted Rinseless wash), clay section with the clay mitt, spray with Coating Prep to remove left over wax/sealant, wipe with quality MF towel to dry (I like the fluffy waffle weave towel Adam's used to sell). I only use this method when I am doing a paint correction.
  19. Yep Dampen a MF towel in the Rinseless Wash solution Clean section with Rinseless Wash using Adam's Microfiber Wash mitt Spray H2O G&G over the section (a Tolco spray head from the Premium Dilution bottle works best) try not to put on too much Wipe with the damp MF towel to spread out the G&G over the section Wipe dry with a Waterless Wash towel Move on to the next section until done!
