  1. A lot of people have been saying that ceramic boost has been changed a while now. after reading these post I stopped short of throwing away my ceramic boost I got from mystery boxes, because I thought the product sucked. I read the label and noticed some of them had different things said on labels about how to use the products and it looked a little different. so I decided after reading people rave about a " new formula" a while back to give it another try. as in another post I made I loved it!!!! I didn't like the wet application to much although it did work but too much trouble, but the dry way was fantastic. I noticed a few things. after applying dry the more I wiped and buffed it shinned. I use it after a wax, or the ceramic paste wax and again worked the same way. I used it on plastic trim and I must say I will be using vrt a lot less ( tested it out on trim on my daughters jeep which has a lot of plastic trim, boy 2 months later and it is still just as shiny and protecting the first day I use it). for windows I still read a few complaints but this is what I did, I gave my daughters jeep which has huge windows a good detail clean ( strong window cleaner or apc clean then clayed it and eraser, I know I know over kill but it is how I do it, then adams aerosol window cleaner or adams liquid window cleaner) then I add the ceramic boost. boy works like the window sealant and helps keep prints off somehow It seemed to me. ok dont flame me for this but I also wanted to try it so I did. I had a friends car I use for testing who lets me do what I want ( he is always smiling and glad to let me) whos car has a lot of plastic trim in back so I took it inside and applied it on trim. say what you want but after that stuff is on and it comes back cleaning is a breeze. Finally I how someone from adams reads this. couple months back people were saying on forums the formula had changed and label seemed to confirm it. I called adams because of the great results I was getting. some of the people at adams were saying it had changed and some said I hadn't but that was a printing era. I know we have a new formula now but did it change before this big release? give us a official statement. all I know is one day I hated it and gave it another try and I promise you it worked different.
  2. I was turned off to ceramic boost. the first formula seemed very limited. I tried it once and the experience sucked. I got a couple bottles from mystery boxes and thought what a waist. then I read on forums that they improved the formula. now you can use it on glass and trim, wet and dry. I was chatting with a adams employee who told me he uses as a detail spray. I was still hesitant. I chatted this mourning with adams people again. chandler told me what I heard was true about new formula and it works great. he told me to wash car, he blows car off of 80% of water and the goes to town on everything exterior. I decided to try it on my daughters car. I washed car, misted car with detail spray and broke out the leaf blower got just about all the water off. now came it was the time. I was a little nervous. I grabbed a couple micro towels and took a leap of faith and went to town!! I started the first panel with spraying the boost on it working it on surface with one towel then using the other to buff it off. at first I was ready to call chandler some names behind is back, it was coming off hard. couple more swipes and I noticed the more I buffed it the slicker the paint got and the shinier it got. spraying it seemed a little wasteful so I ran to garage and grabbed a applicator. spray on applicator and rub on surface buff to a " don't lean on my car shine you might slip off " was so much fun I will confess I rubbed more than I had too, kept trying to see how I can get this car to pop like crazy. the windows were easy, and the effect on the trim was amazing. it shined and darkened like I used trim restorer. I was tempted to take it inside to see what it would do lol. the glass shined, the trim shined the chrome shined. shined and sealed in one hit. after using on my daughters jeep I only used maybe a quarter of the bottle and since I used this bottle to test on another car I could see it would last a while. after a while the applicater was wet with boost and so I had only to give a small spray on it before next panel or surface and it kept going and going. boost is now officially my favorite right now. WHY ARE YOU GUYS KEEPING IT A SECRET??? WHERE ARE THE VIDEOS???? The man The myth The legend The rookie Cedric
  3. was watching utube detail talk show talking about layering. their claim is putting a wax on top of a wax removes the first layer because wax is a solvent. is this true? also said you can up wax on top of a sealant but if you put sealant on top of a wax will remove the wax. is this true? is wax a solvent?
  4. Now that I think about it would this work? rinseless wash foaming up giving it a lifting action with foam and just wiping it off?? then second towel drying it? quick someone go out and try this now!!!!
  5. Thinking of buying a IK foam sprayer. just want to know what have you used in and did it work out or should I say did it foam? do you have to put water in everything to make it foam? chime in everyone. I want to know everything, apc, tire cleaner, iron remover, rinseless wash ( real curious about this one) lets roll on this
  6. Someone said on another post ( sorry cant remember who and where, but was a detailer that is always on here) that wax doesn't bond to the paint. Is this true?? the talk was about the never ending questioned about layer ( getting as bad as if a tree falls in the forest and no one around to here it …… etc etc) but someone asking about glaze and sealants and waxes. one guy said when using a sealant he wanted that best bond to the paint for it so he lays that on paint first then a glaze. he said when using a wax it doesn't matter because waxes do not bond to paint. is this true??? and does that included the new paste wax?
  7. Any one know where I can buy a detail bush with a very large head? I keep going on amazon and seeing example pictures of detail brushes, but the people who hold them must have very small hands. when I get on in the mail they are way smaller than they look. hope someone can point me in the right direction.

    IK sprayer to much

    hi Shane again. thanks for all the advice the only thing about texting and typing is that tone, facial expressions , etc , etc doesn't come out. I know how I must sound when I am typing. Most of those things I have discovered the easy or mostly the hard way. before committing to starting a home detailing business I read forums and watched videos for few months and talked to adams people mostly and others I knew were in or used to me in business like you so I knew what was coming. being a child of assembly line car makers who worked for GM I try as much as I can to stay with American products and companies. after some research and looking at other car detailing companies who make their own products I chose adams. some companies are American but outsource their products. Adams makes almost all of there chemicals ( bout 99%) and mostly just gets towels and some accessories made in other countries. I have to pay more but for good products and supporting American companies and jobs I am willing too. So when I sound out about something I am dissatisfied with I like to let them know before I move on. this has several times stopped me from doing that when I was contacted by adams people telling me to hold off they are coming out with something or improving something. So that is why I sound off good and loud and ask a lot of questions here and when I call. I chose adams as my primary products and want to stay. so keep commenting on my forums rant you and others have helped me a lot, specially adams people. after a year of practice and working on cars I am still addicted...… I mean excited about detailing. my plan for my neighborhood operations has just expanded from word of mouth. sent out flyers to neighbors. working out pretty good I dont have to buy a rig to drive around in they are bringing cars to my place ( boy is it handy). I make enough to pay for products, some good cash on the side of working, and feed my addic…….. I mean … uh ….. get to meet people, get closer to neighbors, supply a service to community, we the people in order to form a more perfect union establish justice ……. better stop there.

    IK sprayer to much

    I used it on several all the same. when I got the new iron remover I tried it out on that first. I bought a gallon of it and the ik sprayer around the same time. I got a exterior detail job and decided to try it out on it. boy even though I was trying to move fast it used up almost all of the iron remover in ik sprayer. same result with different chemicals. right now I am scared to try it on other stuff because I cant control how much comes out. I wasted almost half of the gallon on one car because of that sprayer. I think adams should hook up with another company for a sprayer. the ik waste a lot of product. I am not rich so when It used up some much of the iron remover and I got mad and said some things about adams ( sorry bout what I said about adams company and people I got mad ) lol. I am now scared to use the ik sprayer now feel like I wasted my money.
  10. is it just me or does the IK sprayer adams used apply to much product or is there a way I can turn it down? I control on the IK sprayer lets you widen and narrow how the product come out but does not lessen the amount. I go through to much of products to fast using it. or does using the fan nozzle help to limit it? I dont like to complain but maybe adams needs to keep search for a better spayer to sale. I do have another on from another complain which I want mention here and I can adjust how much comes out and as of now I fill it up with detail spray and boy does it go a long way. anyone have the IK spray notice this problem or have advice on how to use it? I want to stay with adams but that spray makes things expensive. how is it on the foamer?
  11. Anyone use a water deionizer? which brand? satisfied? do you use it to wash or just rinse? does using effect the washing?
  12. ok if you have read my question about patriot wax and the other paste waxes about storing this is not the exactly the same thing. I just want to know is it important to store any of the other chemicals in the house during the summer. has adams released any info about what chemicals will be no good after leaving in garage during the summer? I would hate to think I use a product I am wasting my time and cheating my customers. I know bout the paste waxes they are all in the house but how bout buttery wax and h20 guard & gloss? any other chemicals need to be in the house ?? adams the people deserve to know !!! any while you are at it are you guys jedi or sith? dark side or light side of the force? the people deserve to know!!! kareem or wilt? Daniel craig or shean connery??? Epson or HP?? mac or Microsoft?? glaze on top of paint seal or underneath?? is your favorite interior detailing or exterior??? The people deserve to know!!!!!
  13. from now on when I make a dumb mistake detailing I am going to say " boy, I am acting like J. R. Smith !!! lololololool ………… ok I thought it was funny.
