  1. Let’s see what others say... but I know the experts (certainly not me) will want to know what Ceramic Coating you used? Adams? Or another? If it’s a professional grade it may be more forgiving and might hold up to “finishing polish”. But let’s see what @falcaineer , @shane@detailedreflections Have to say
  2. Oh let’s see: Ceramic spray coating on the granite countertops. Rinsless wash diluted to waterless wash on just about everything as a general purpose cleaner. Detail spray on the stove top, counters, table tops, iPad screens, phone screens, TV screens.
  3. For the streaks that I have gotten a few times, I just used a clean MF towel and light mist of detail spray and buffed it off. Worked for me
  4. Made 4 trips to the landscape supply and picked up 2 yards of garden soil. Unloaded it all by myself with a flat shovel. Put 1.5 yards into my garden bed. The other half yard was spread in a low spot in my yard and then grass seed spread. Then it was off to the little league field to coach my sons little league team. Now watching the Bruins with a beer!
  5. When given the opportunity, you must take them when they come! i am sure it will be fun!
  6. Hahahaha...... don’t use sandpaper! My next thoughts would be clay,
  7. Trim restorer before the ceramic trim coating Here is what I did about a month and a half ago, I also did tire armor for the first time as well. Cleaned wheels, wheel wells Scrubbed tires 4-5 times with T&RC until foaming turned white Scrubbed all trim to be restored (T&RC until the foaming was white) 2 bucket washed the truck Dried the truck and trim Used air to blow water out from around trim and tires Applied Tire Armor Applied Trim Restorer Allowed to cure for about 6 hours Applied ceramic trim coating Allowed to cure for 24 hours Enjoyed the results.
  8. BMT on wheat, ADD BACON, lettuce tomatoe, pickles, spicey mustard, salt and pepper, oil and vinegar.
  9. Well, was really hoping to make it this year because I was off from work and was looking good to go...... until the little league schedule I am coaching in came out yesterday..... got a game. I am already missing the previous 2 games due to going out of town for Easter. ☹️
  10. I don’t have that exact hose but, my somewhat educated guess would be that once it warms up, gets used a few times, it will relax and be easier and more manageable. If it’s sunny out, lay it out in your driveway for a few hours and let the warmth of the sun and warmth of the blacktop warm up the hose.
  11. GooGone is a go-to for me for adhesives. Follow that with APC to get rid of the GooGone residue and rest of the grime. Then you could do ID, or DS.
  12. I started by using straight VRT. Got the same results as others have posted, streaking down the bedsides. Then switched to 50/50 VRT. Pretty happy with the results of that. Just used H2O GG 2.0 this past wash. And I got to say.... looks really good. And performs beautifully! Rained for the first time today since I applied it about 2 weeks ago.
  13. Yesterday I was able to finally get some work done on my truck. Started off by giving it a quick wash and dry with DS. Wasn’t that dirty. Just washed it last week or so with a freash application of H2.OGG. Pulled the tires, wheel cleaner, and wash both the face and inside barrel. Set them aside to dry. (1 neighbor commented on me washing the inside of the barrels. “Wow, I have never seen anyone clean the inside of the rims”) Pulled the calipers, brake pads, caliper brackets, and rotors. Cleaned and sanded the calipers and caliper brackets. Painted the calipers and brackets matte black. Installed new rotors, brake pads, reassembled calipers. Applied Ceramic Spray Coating to the inside barrels and the front face of the rims. Rotated and reinstalled tires. Only second time doing brakes, first time doing rotors and painting calipers. Went fairly smooth. Started at about 10am. Took the test drive at about 6pm. Drove about 35 miles to work this am with all 4 tires still firmly attached and no squeaks, creeks, or groans so that was a bonus!
  14. @Rich I hear ya on that!! Was a nice day out. Was in the 40’s but sunny. Tried out the Ultra Foaming shampoo sample that was sent in my last Adams order in the foam gun. Worked pretty well. Not sure I would buy that over the regular shampoo. The regular shampoo does a good job in the foam gun. I did try out the new H2OGG 2.0 today for some protection. Still holding out to do spring paint correction before throwing down the ceramic spray coating. Tire Armor is still holding up well. Trim coating I applied about a month ago is looking real nice still.
