    Wife made prime rib last week, but our daughter sent us a bucket from a place called Topsail Steamer for Christmas, we added some more crab legs and mussels to it, and had a low country boil two nights ago. Definitely enjoyed that one!

  5. This was not intentional is and was accidental. The team is aware of what happened. They recently completed year-end inventory at headquarters, so that is my best guess as to how this machine was placed into the wrong area. These polishers are meant for display at our locations and show events like SEMA. The clear plastic will crack easily, and can melt if used. Thank you Jonathan for your honesty in returning this. The team will make it right with you.

    Winter Maintenance OCD

    Warm Water in my buckets. A thin pair of Glove Liners as insulation under a pair of Nitrile Gloves with a pair of Playtex Hand Saver Dishwashing Gloves over the Nitrile Gloves. As long as the temps are above freezing I wash outside on the driveway. No need for the local Pay & Spray, I've got a Pressure Washer. This may blow your mind's, but if it's below 40 and I decide to wash a vehicle, I'll often use the two bucket wash method with the Truck Brush! To date, no noticeable marring on any vehicle I've done this on. Those of you that know me, know I'd see the marring

  11. My friend and neighbor needed his Jeep Rubicon prepared for winter. I started in his driveway with a quick once over inspection looking for anything that may need my attention but found none. Off to my heated garage we went where I started with a quick rinse of the roof and windows with Adam’s Rinseless Wash in a spray bottle. Those areas were then rinseless washed and the roof dried. The windows were cleaned a second time with Adam’s Clay Towel then dried. Next the paint was pre-rinsed then cleaned with Adam’s Rinseless Wash and several MF towels in a bucket. I spray rinsed then gen

  15. Can't go wrong with Patriot. But like you, I wasn't ready to go all ceramic, so I started out with the Ceramic Paste Wax on the Cadillac and the Vette . Very happy with the results, and easy to maintain with the Boost. When I bought the Equinox, I decided to give the Graphene Ceramic Spray a try. Gave it the full breakdown, wash, clay, polish, wipe down, and Graphene. Much easier and less time consuming than the regular Graphene and FANTASTIC results. The Nox is black, so it's very unforgiving and it came out near perfect. I maintain it with the Graphene Detail Spray, and one day when I w

  16. Hi all! I just bought a new 2020 Silverado LTZ, Z71 Crew Cab. I was surfing the internet to get info on car care products and ran across Adam`s Polishes site. I really liked all those videos that show how to detail vehicles and all the products looked top quality and easy to use. There was a lot of things I did`nt know when I read a bunch of articles in the Blog. Still have a lot to learn. And these products make washing and waxing enjoyable again.

  19. One layer is sufficient, use the UV light to ensure you get full, even coverage. With coatings, the law of diminishing returns applies, so adding 2+ layers doesn't equate to 2x+ protection. Do proper prep, maintain regularly, and you'll get the best, longest lasting results.

  20. I agree with the guz, no one washes their vehicle repeatedly with crazy heavy duty degreasers. There are a few great youtubers out there, I’m not here to promote anyone, but they do more real world testing, with regular soaps, or true longevity tests. These guys i trust and they are showing more real world scenarios, plus i like testing, and I play with different things myself, as do most of us. For example...On the previous version of Adams spray coating, it came out Black Friday 2019, so not the graphene, It has been on my daily driven 2001 Silverado for

  21. Hi Daniel, I'm in agreement with you that CS3 is a kick tail product and I absolutely love it. I was really amazed when I paired the Graphene Spray coating with CS3 and turns it into CS3 on Steroids. I also absolutely love the Graphene Detail Spray on coated and non-coated vehicles. Not every vehicle I touch ends up with Graphene Spray Coating, it is really up to the person on whether or not they want that or something else. However, my personal vehicles will all be Graphene Spray Coated within the year along with my kids and their spouses. This is a choice for the daily drivers and gara

  22. It’s not often that Adams Polishes makes a mistake, but here is a fun one. I bought the SK Pro 12mm today and when I got home I was in for a surprise! (I am going back to HQ to undo this mistake, but boy would this have looked good with my other limited editions!)

    C7 Paint Correction

    As Chris mentioned, our Compound and Polish are fairly low dust, but they can make some, especially if you do not start with a clean pad, or the compound has time to start drying into the pad. I will agree with Chris in that C5 and C6 Corvettes have very hard clear coats; however all of the C7 Corvettes that I have worked on I would say are in the soft to medium range in terms of the clear coat, and are easier to correct than previous generations. GM invested in a new paint shop for the Corvette a few years back, and it is my understanding these updated paint jobs began showing up in Novem

  27. I have been eating rather well recently between the Chef daughter and a gourmet cook originally from Albanian, there is just no lack of quality and quantity. While I am always in charge of bringing the wine, I try to take care of whatever I can. Over the last week, we've had home made Beef Wellington, Albanian lasagna, homemade bread, multiple desserts, breakfast pastries and much more. I also know that our Christmas dinner will have a 4 rib bone in roast for the main course and well I did not splurge for the Wagyu, it is a top of a the line roast. In addition to paying for the roast, win

    What did you do today?

    I received a box today and was told that I don't get to open it until my birthday, which is in about a month. It is a pretty good sized box and all I've been told is that it contains something Red and that I'll like it - honestly, is that much of hint for me? I know it isn't a new vehicle or even a play vehicle, the box is not that big, but it is much bigger than a breadbox. Now, everyone on the forum can start thinking about what it might be and wait to find out along with me.

  35. Yesterday Mrs. Captain Slow subtly suggested her Beast needed a desalting and bath. (“About as subtle as a rhinoceros horn up the backside.” BlackAdder) Pulled the SS out in the driveway and brought the Beast in. Got everything ready only to discover my battery powered pressure washer had died...immediately after I had foamed the Beast with the IK sprayer. Hooked up the garden hose whereupon my favorite nozzle decided it was time to go as well.🙄😠 Put on ol’ drippy the nozzle I hate but spent too much on to throw away and got to rinsing.

  36. Hi @EnzianF90 Unfortunately this type of bird dropping looks like it has etched the clear coat to the point that it has fractured the clear, which looks like small cracks and ripples in the clear coat. Bird droppings can be very acidic and can damage a clear coat in as little as a few hours if left on the surface or out in the hot sun. The acidic dropping eats through the clear, and the acid penetrating combined with the heat from the sun causes it to web outward - almost like how you will see a crack in a windshield enlarge and split out in different directions with extreme heat o

    Rinseless wash

    Hi Alisha, if you're using distilled water it can last longer than that, and yes you could mix into larger batches as long as you keep it in a sealed container and shake it up before each use. 7-10 days with tap water sitting in an open bucket is fairly accurate though. Just like if you leave a bucket in the garage with water, Car Shampoo, and a wet wash pad in the bucket, after a week or two it can start to get smelly and possibly even have mildew build-up depending on temperature and humidity. I've done this on accident before and had to then soak the wash pad in Towel & Pad Revitali

    Some brands create more dust than others. Adam's are pretty low dust. Corvettes do tend to have pretty hard clear coats, so you'll want to consider both Polish and Compound, and all pads including Microfiber. There are kits available on the site, as well.

As Ray said good riddance to 2020, but we aren’t out of the woods yet, I know way too many people who have, or have had the damn virus 🦠 and a couple of our retirees have passed away from it.

  49. I have no doubt that the team is actively working with the vendor to get things corrected, yet I'm still going to offer an incentive to get it fixed soon - maybe something like we had last night after our Albanian lasagna that we enjoyed with a glass or two of some of Revines finest wines - which is what I am always responsible for meals. These were not made by my chef daughter, they were made by an Albanian gourmet cook and while the eclairs may look messy, they were fantastic. The cake is milk product free and has raspberries in the middle with blueberries around the outside and

  50. I would take any of his so called torture tests with a grain of salt. It is such a narrow window in a products true performance. Mother Nature is the true test. Also he has a habit of not reading or researching the products. Remember he is getting a paycheck from youtube just for the views he gets along with the free products he gets.
