  1. Well my reason for using a gun is to get soap on and let it soak. I cant see where it adds any lubricity.
  2. I don't understand everyone's need for suds. I personally would rather not have it. I don't see the value. I want cleaning ability and lubricity and something that does not streak or cause issues if it starts to dry. Adams shampoo does exactly that.
  3. I have a 2305 and had a 345 before that. Normal polishing compounds works great on the plastic. As much as I try I just cant help but keeping them polished.

    Spray Detail over Ceramic Paste Wax

    That is good to know but I thought Adam's said that anything over boost would reduce the hydrophobic properties. I miss using detail spray for a drying aid so this is good info.
  5. I want to trade a new ceramic kit and bottle of Boost 2.0 for Ceramic Wax and any of the following in gallons to make up the difference. APC, Shampoo or glass cleaner. Must be new and unused. Thanks Rich
  6. I can vouch that mail response has been very slow. I rarely use phone so can't say anything about that. Send emery@adamspolishes.com Emery an email and try to resolve it. He seems to be very responsive.

    Tonneau cover

    I have been wiping my cover with HGG. I dont like how the VRT streaks down the truck.
  8. You nailed it. I live in Ankeny. Where were you staying @Zach5.9CTD

    Bad First Experience With Buttery Wax

    Buttery is traditionally effortless to apply and wipe off. So not sure what you have going on. I do not use it because it does not last long enough but my experience is easy on/off. As Jim said I would contact Adams.
  10. I told them first time around. The day after I coated the truck. So that has been a couple months ago.

    Slime !

    I am used to him so yes. I have watched a lot of his videos.
  12. Got my replacement ceramic coating today. For those interested the instructions are still wrong. Adams has confirmed that my 45 seconds of dwell time was probably not long enough and the new formula should the initial time to rainbow plus 2-3 minutes. I cant believe they have not added an addendum sticker or something to manual. Doing a coating job is no small task and its nuts to continue to lead people down the wrong path.
  13. Thanks man ! We got over 10 inches of rain here and most of it came in about 4 hours. More rain than I have seen in my lifetime and hoping the last time I see it. Anyway, will get ceramic on the truck again as soon as I catch up !
  14. Picking away at it. Unfortunately insurance wont cover issues like this. So replacing an 8 year old Geo Thermal system is frustrating.
  15. We were not in pooling water but we had so much water coming down the back hill that it broke our egress window and flooded the basement. 8 1/2' (yes feet). So basement mechanical's all trashed and all personal belongings. Fortunately our basement is not finished except for stairs, landing and small hallway. Glad you escaped damage ! Funny you would mention sheetrock. That is my current task. Have it taped and first coat on.
