  1. Mreed

    I am new to this Forum. I enjoy watching your videos and watching you detail a car the right way. 

  2. Hi Bill, the Revive is indeed a polish, not much protection there. However, it cleans the paint and offers a significant gloss upgrade. I'd also suggest using the Buttery Wax, then, every few months, add a coat of Brilliant Glaze. Putting the Glaze right over the Wax won't net much more gloss or additional protection. Let's see the Vette!
  3. Friends: We started this shine-therapy forum over a decade ago! Time sure does fly....doesn't it? Thank you for being here, and participating in this shine-crazy community. Thank you for your business, and for voting for products you like and don't like with your dollars. Thank you for helping us create better solutions. Thank you for calling attention to areas or products we can improve. Thank you for helping us grow this business exponentially, I'm humbled beyond words! Please, SMILE while you type.... Thank you for not using this forum as a place to air negativity. Thank you for always being respectful of other members, and our employees. Thank you for using detailing, your therapist, or exercise, or meditation to work through your issues, when you feel like life is tough. Thank you for making AdamsForums a positive and pleasant place to hang out! In 2008, when we started this forum, we had 6 employees, and a few thousand customers. Today, we have 125 employees, and over 300,000 customers. One thing we have learned, for absolute certain: WE ARE NOT PERFECT! There was exactly one person who ever walked earth, who was perfect. We are not Him. We are not even close. If you are feeling perfect, like your finish is 100% swirl free, and never needs cleaning or polishing, if you feel like your poop doesn't stink, like you walk on water, and are comfortable coming here to blast members or the company who pays to maintain this community, please, don't. Need to get some negativity off your chest? Find a dirty or swirled up car to detail. Find a therapist, let out a primal scream, go for a run or hike, a mountain bike ride, go ski or snowboard if that's your winter kick, like it is mine! There are many ways people like to get negative energy out. Blasting other members, or this enthusiast forum sponsor probably won't help you turn your frown upside down. Please come, hang out, be kind, give and get detailing help, and understand: We want to earn your business, but more importantly, we want your kindness. Vote for the products you like with your dollars. Don't buy stuff you don't like, but please, don't bash them. If you cannot understand the marketing team's decision to bring on a particular product, you are probably not the target customer! I have never watched TV, don't buy soda or potato chips, and don't follow sports. Do I hang out bashing Coke, Ruffles, or slamming the Super Bowl? Absolutely not, it's just not worth the negative energy! (Plus, my kids, wife, and employees need me to be a positive influence.) So friends, I've instructed our incredible Forum Leadership Team to permanently remove AF members who regularly post negativity. Threads that are overrun with negativity are also going to be deleted, unless they offer detailing solutions or help to members searching. As the only AdamsForums sponsor, we want people to feel great about being here. Thanks for your business, and your smile, and here is my Primal Scream, after getting this off my chest!
  4. Hi Adam, I am having a problem contacting customer support via telephone from Canada can you please help me? 

    1. Mustangmark


      TheWolf has sent me the telephone number and I have left a message now thank you.

  5. That sounds crazy Tony! Not how we roll, typically....but...it sounds like we gave you some poor customer service. I apologize, and we typically offer a higher level of customer care. I've sent you an email. We can certainly make this right. Looks like your Flex backing plate disintegrated. In fact, we haven't carried that tool in years, and we don't carry backing plates. As for the leaky gallon of TID, and broken cap on the Ceramic Boost, certainly, we can make that right. However, the gallon is likely expired, judging by the label. I believe it's a 2012-2013 blend date? If it works for you, order this Flex backing plate from Amazon, and we will get you a $100 store credit to shop as you wish! https://www.amazon.com/Flex-452-661-FLEX/dp/B01N2IX434/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1546576118&sr=8-5&keywords=flex+xc+3401+vrg+5.5+inch+backing+plate Sending you an email now....thanks Tony,
  6. Thanks ZMAN024. This is a true statement, quality of water changes soap performance substantially. Our house has harder water than our shop, and therefore, the suds are substantially different! As for quantity of soap, I typically use 2-3oz, as water spotting is an issue where we live/ work. (I also wash at least two cars at a time, so really, the soap used per car is in the 1-1.5oz/ car range. Our soaps neutralize the minerals in the water, and the extra $ in soap used makes my life easier. If your water isn't hard, and your need for suds is low, then use what works, by all means! I'm just grateful to earn your soap business, and certainly, using more is good for business, and the kids love it!
  7. I heard he evaporated in a crazy car crash...... Racing through the Swiss Alps in a LaFerrari, and launched off a cliff, doing well over 200 mph. He was racing a Bugatti Veyron, and winning, when he swerved to avoid a mud puddle, he didn't want to dirty the freshly detailed supercar.....the beautiful car took flight, and exploded into smithereens.....big insurance claim! Hahahahaha! Well, hello friends! Seems as our little business grows, the days are long, the travel frequent, and the downtime is fleeting. As our little family grows, my 'off time,' when I used to hang on the Forum, is now filled with soccer or basketball, homework, etc. ( The Forum is where I went to chill out, not so much to work.) Crazy to think, when we started Adam's Forums in 2008, we had 0 kids, 3 employees, and plenty of free time! Now, a decade later, were are blessed with 41 employees, 3 kids, and a pretty dang busy business. We now attend over 40 shows each year, and I see many of you around the country! It's good to be here on AF, and I feel our guys, Dan Tyger, Chris Toth, and Dan Wolf, are handling this forum responsibility well. I'm humbled to have you reading my words, and using our goods. ADD has the best of me, so I try to keep communication to a few mediums, emails, in person, and phone calls. If you want to connect with me on any matters that cannot be resolved here on AF: Adam@AdamsPolishes.com Office: 720-473-7100 Or, find me at the most of the shows scheduled on our Event Calendar! Thanks friends, and here is a snapshot of who I am hanging with at every possible second:
  8. Great feedback! There will be larger bottles very soon for professionals, and for people who just love to detail, and blow through lots of stuff. Stay tuned, and we are listening....and changing....
  9. Thanks Guys! Crazy enough, this is the busy time for us, and rest will come later....that's what January is for!
  10. Hi Friends! Site traffic is a bit north of the available server space........sorry! If you are kicked off/ or the site won't load immediately, give it a few.... I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your business!!
  11. Here is the rule of thumb on categorizing dealer-applied protection: "Added Dealer Markup!" Still, if you paid for it, and you don't get therapy polishing and sealing or waxing your truck, go for it!
  12. Hi Stephen, sorry for the loss, and on your new car, hopefully you stole it! From the pictures, looks like a poor color match, bad paint job, and a lack of sanding and buffing. Is the color a closer match in person than it appears in the photo? Notice the difference between the bumper and trunk? To have that sanded, re-shot, sanded, and buffed should cost about $1-$1.5K... You can sand the existing panel and buff it, however, the color match will require a re-shoot!
  13. The solvent in the BG cuts any nasty stuff on the glass. Seems new glass is the worst, but once I use Brilliant Glaze on the interior, it's a breeze to clean!
  14. This is great input, and we are listening.... New Glass Cleaner is coming.... And I must say, treating the glass first is what I do on every car I clean. 1. Brilliant Glaze on interior glass. 2. Clay and Glass Sealant on Exterior Glass. 3. Easy time cleaning with a mist of Waterless Wash and a Waterless Wash Towel on all glass, once treated. Time for a video!
