  1. I think H20 is just to thick for that sprayer it comes with. I'll have to grab a 320 and try it out. Where do you buy your sprayers from?
  2. All good my friend. I'm moving all towards a all Adam's Polishes arsenal anyway. I just been over the years trying to navigate all the changes that have happened since I use to be a professional Detailer back in the late 80's early 90's. I use to use Rotary Buffers and just got a D/A Polisher for my Birthday in June. I figured that those 2 products where not water activated as they don't mention any of that in their specs. I usually use Detail spray as my drying agent but I might once in a while hit it with CS3 since this product is so good. I'm gonna pick up a gallon of it.
  3. Excellent information man thanks a lot. So the UV the only difference is the ability to see it with the UV light so you can make sure you coated correctly, I get that. I didn't think the CS3 was a drying agent but that makes sense. I also didn't think the Ceramic Boost was a drying agent but that is also makes some sense. Are they both water active? I know the H20 is and is a sealant with some ceramic prosperities, that product works very well. I also watched the entire video on Adam's Ceramic kit with the prep spray Boost and small bootle of actual Ceramic coating. That is something I may venture into next. I'm probably going to get a 2021 Durango or Jeep Grand Cherokee Hemi Models of course of some level and do a full paint correction and then go for a full coating. I know this is a Adam's forum but I'm sure every single member in here has used other products and compared them to Adam's or uses stuff along side of Adam's stuff. So I don't exactly agree with only talking about Adam's stuff but if that's the rules I'm cool with that.
  4. Hello all, OK I wanted to start a thread talking about all the rage right now in ceramic coating, not the professional coating but all these spray coating that hit the market. The First one I tried from Adams is the H20 guard and gloss. I found it to work amazingly well but didn't like how it sprayed, it was basically to thick. That product probably would have been better as a liquid wax and apply with a pad. Yesterday for a early Fathers day gift my Son got me CS3 16 oz size as I was washing my Durango yesterday and he gave me all my Adams gifts. I got a Shirt Air fresher , hand soap and the CS3. The CS3 I used basically like a detail spray. My Truck is already coated with another manufacturers Spray Ceramic coating. I did a clay bar and polish last weekend and then coated with a spray ceramic coating from Griots Garage. Worked great. The CS3 gave it another level of gloss and the feel of the paint I'll describe it to feel like silk. So basically I went to the Adams website to check out all the ceramic Spray coating and found a few of them. Adam's has their own Ceramic spray coating but also has another one in a UV ceramic spray coating. So basically 4 of them with H20,CS3 UV and the standard ceramic spray coating. I think there was more but I'm already confused on how to proceed. Can someone basically explain all these different spray coatings and what they should be used for? Oh and I saw the Ceramic boost. It's getting a bit much and I want to put together a nice system for my vehicles that I can use. I like to wash all 3 of them each week, like using a spray after a wash to keep it fresh etc. I deeply enjoy detailing my vehicles every weekend as I love a fresh clean vehicle. I have a garage so they stay in very good condition and light dirt and dust is basically what I clean off. Some weekends one of them may only need a waterless wash and from what I learned the CS3 is a great product for that. Thanks in advance as I really want to explore all of Adam's ceramic offerings as this is the new path I'm on as I'm moving away from sealants and waxes.

    Thank you.
  6. I so agree, in person it damn near looks like a mirror and usually White doesn't do that.

    Hello all, My son for my Birthday got me a Signed by Adam Adam's Polishes sign for the garage. How cool is that? Thanks Adam for signing it, it ROCKS!!!!
  8. Hello all, I've been thinking about paint protection after a compound and Polish, beautiful prepped paint and ready to be protected. There are so many options it's ver whelming. You got your usual Carnauba wax, then you have Sealants and now Ceramic waxes coating etc. I know the Coating is the best option and the most expensive but what about all these ceramic spray coatings, waxes vs sealants and carnauba waxes of yesterday ? Can a spray last as long or longer then a properly applied sealant? Is the cost worth it? Maybe cost isn't the biggest deal as some waxes can get pretty expensive. For a daily driver in normal non extreme conditions like rain, some snow in the winter and 80-100 degree summer days with sunshine clouds and rain, what do you think ? Do you think these spray coatings can compete with a good sealant?
  9. Welcome to the Forum.
  10. Thanks looks better in person. Looks like someone put a glass surface over the entire truck. H2O is the best.
  11. Everything. I use a foam cannon for washing and use Car Shampoo for most washes except Mega Foam and Wash and wax from time to time. Also have strip wash so there's that. I have always used Microfiber towels and Drying towels to keep the finish like new. I use to detail back in the late 80's and early 90's and Love how good products and technics have got over the years. Back then Terry towels where what we used. It took me awhile to get use to Microfiber. I found it difficult at first. I still at times have issues with Glass cleaning and micro fiber lint. Not often but sometimes these damn towels will just lint bomb glass. I own a Dewalt Rotary Professional 7-9 inch Buffer and I have yet to use it on my Durango 2017 model year with 30k on it.
  12. I'm gonna have to agree. It really makes her POP .
