    Buttery Wax

    Thank you! I like something simple and easy. That is probably the worst part to detailing is the clean up stage!

    I need help!!!

    I would like to recommend a pressure washer and Foam Cannon, he will love that setup to wash the car. Men and there toys too. a two bucket system a nice way to go as well. Before long you will have a garage full of stuff to clean that car with it, its a bad hobby but it makes that ride Shine!!
  3. Can I apply both or is there no need to apply both and just use one or the other??? I am looking to get everything I need to over haul my car. I want it to shine. I have BG at home already. I am planning on getting the swirls out of the hood and few other places I can see, and then I wanted to make sure I apply some type of finish wax to it. I want it to last What is the process for buttery wax and Paint Sealant? I know this maybe a silly question but I'm a rookie in the pro leagues.
  4. I love how you guys at Adam's have color coded everything for us Dummies out here, so here is one for you... Buttery Wax, what pad should I use to apply it? I am thinking the gray pad since its is a finish wax. Do you recommend me using a machine to apply it?

    Swirl Killer 21mm

    Very Nice Write up. that helps out a lot.
  6. I saw on another post where someone said he rinses the car first and then foams it. I was told by a friend of mine that I should foam it when its dry and cool. My Steps are: 1. Wash Wheels and Tires first, try to keep car dry as possible 2. Now foam car complete, let foam sit for a few minutes 3. Rinse completely 4. Foam Again, wash car with foam on it. 5. After car is scrubbed, rinse thoroughly 6. Dry car with blower to get most of water off 7. finish getting water off with Adam's Drying towel and Detail Spray (Do you get the towel wet and ring dry before putting detail spray on it, that is what I was told as well) I was told to foam it when it was dry and cool, the foam would stick to the dirt better and if it was wet, the foam would go around the dirt. I am not talking MUD, I am referring to average car dirt.

    Swirl Killer 21mm

    I just saw the 15mm has the same kit, would I be better getting the 15mm instead of the 21mm??
  8. I looking to get the Adams 3 Step complete Polishing kit, which comes with the 21mm polisher. it looks like it is everything I need to start to fix some of the light imperfections on the paint. The hood has swirls all over it. They are not noticeable until you look at it closely. My eye sees them all day long. I was wanting to get a Gray pad as well but it only comes in a 5.5 size, how do I get it to work with the 21mm and 6.5 backing plate? Can I use 5.5 pads on the 21mm? I was also wanting to get the Red pad as well to do BG with. I like the way it looks on my windshield. Do I need to get the mini as well to do what I am looking to do??

    Towels

    Hey, I am sure I am crazy here but last night I cleaned my microfiber towels along with with my ultra plush drying towel. I used MR as my cleaner and then extra low in the dryer but my problem is that my ultra plush drying towel has a lot of static charge, is that normal or what should i do next time to help with this issue. Its just my car I clean so I dont have a bunch of towels to wash together. I try to get a many as I can when I do wash them. I separate my towel from wash and wax towels. I know not to wash my wax towels with my regular microfibers or glass towels. you all dont use dryer sheets in the dryer do you all??

    I baked my phone

    I have a PS3 that has a Yellow light of Death, I have googled it and it says to heat the board up and let the solder reflow, I wonder if I could do the same with it. I never thought about using an oven to reflow solder. its dead too so i guess i could try. Very nice trick with the cell phone.

    Undercarriage Wash

    Thanks Derek, I may look into that I like the big wheels on this, it would be idea for my driveway, it would also be help to get all the foam off the driveway after I wash the car too!!
  13. We got hit with Ice and Snow like most of you have had, how do you all clean the underneath of your cars??? I have a Cadillac CTS and it pretty low to the ground, I would like to get rid of salt left under the car. I was thinking I could run it through a car was to get the undercarriage washed but I hate to do that because I dont want any of their soap or brushes to touch my car. who knows what they are using. I have been thinking about jacking it up and cleaning it from one side, but just wanted to get some of you guys idea or thoughts Was also thinking about cleaning it with APC as well, mix a little in the cannon and foam the bottom of the car or is that over kill??

Been playing the game along with them every hour, almost got one last night (The Road Runner), I said 82 and it sold for 77, bummer almost there, hoping they may give away some Adam's products but only seen Mag products so far to the winners
