  1. LOL, thats probably the best suggestion I have 3 acres and already cut down 60 trees to build the house. Hate cutting down more. Course it does clog my gutter so maybe you are on to something
  2. Have about 4 of these now. I don't think my Rupes and Adams paint correction stuff will touch it. I might have to get some compound and get out the rotary.
  3. Well I am not ready to go back to coatings yet. I might next year but I already have a failed attempt at Adams coatings on this vehicle and just dont have the energy to go through the process again right now. I forgot about the ceramic wax but that could be a good option. I hate to say for now I am going to jump to the dark side. Just ran to the parts store and bought some $15 a bottle hybrid spray wax from another manufacturer that gets rave reviews and going to give it a try.
  4. Thanks Ray, in my case this is a locust tree. I have not tried spray wax but G&G often. I use detail spray as drying agent in between G&G.
  5. My truck sits outside and tree leaves land on it and leave brown spots from 1/8" in diameter up to 1 1/2 long. I have been washing it with shampoo and then going over it again with a shampoo mitt and spraying APC full strength on a panel. It pretty much all comes off but takes a lot of work. Today it was extra bad and I ended up using claybar and APC which made pretty quick work of it. Of course with APC I have stripped the protection off while removing the brown. I am looking for some kind of protection that would allow me to wash the stains off. The leaves probably sit on the truck two days at most and they are small leaves and not many of them. The truck originally had Adams Ceramic coat which never worked for me so was using LPS but of course the APC has removed it. This summer its just been getting guard and gloss (original). Looking for other options. I have some Patriot here but have not tried it.
  6. In my case there really is not enough room to store towels on the cart and I keep mine in small totes to keep then clean until use. But I just use an Adams cart and the only modification is adding a bar on the front to hang spray bottles down low. So Gallons and towels stay in garage on the shelf.
  7. Have you tried anything like Goo Gone? That has always worked for me with no issues to anything I have used it on.
  8. I have to admit, I did not like the product at first. Vehicle needs to be clayed and really clean. But I love how it works and hydrates the trim, etc all on one shot.
  9. In all fairness I don't think the product description says anything about a powerful stream. It does handle large volumes of water as mentioned. I was expecting the stream from some Youtube videos I watched but looks like the nozzle in videos is different that the one they just shipped me. My water pressure here was about 120 psi which is dangerous to hardware. I have it throttled back to about 90 psi which should be more than adequate. I might just need to put quick disconnects on garage hose so I can swap stuff out easy.
  10. How is everyone that has a fire hose nozzle liking it? Mine came today and although it looks like a million bucks and functions I am disappointed in it. I was hoping for a super strong jet but its really lacking. Out of a 1/2 dozen nozzles it is the worse at a strong stream including the Adams nozzle that came with my foam gun. Not even sure its worth keeping at $25.00 Pretty expensive for something that does not have the convenience of trigger type nozzle. And I have good water volume here and ridiculous pressure.
  11. Here is another shot. You can see it creeping around from back. And yes RayS the center caps are plastic
  12. I am a 2017 High Country owner as well. What you are seeing is corrosion. GM just replaced my wheels under warranty. I ceramic coated the new rims with a competitor brand ceramic including the back barrels and back of spokes as it appears the corrosion starts in the back and crawls around to front. From experience you can polish that out with Adams metal polish and make it look really good but its not going to last. You will need to keep doing it. I am sure its related to living in the snow belt and the salt brine and chemicals they put on the road. And for your info, my truck had around 16,000 miles when GM offered to replace them. Rich
  13. That does not look like wheel cleaner stains to me.
  14. I would have a hard time telling a double soft from a single in the bag. I have a hard enough time getting them straight when I am folding them out of the dryer
