  1. This was one wild and frustrating winter. I was rear ended in mid-December by a guy who was inattentive, and completely missed the turquoise coupe stopped at the light (read: me). I knew that it was going to be a battle when he attempted to offer me $1000 to repair the bumper. That was not going to fly, and then he told me that there was a "problem with [his] insurance," on that specific vehicle (late 1980's GMC panel truck). I figured that this was going to be an uninsured motorist claim, so I advised my own insurance company, and forwarded them the dash cam footage that has be stopped at the

  3. I just want to throw some Kudos out at Christian in Adams Support. Dude was super helpful, knowledgeable and just all around great to deal with. It never ceases to amaze me how nice the folks are at Adams and how well they treat the customer. It’s why they are such a great company to buy from. The best part is the customer service. I’ve never had experiences like I have with Adams with ANY other company I have traded with. Chic Fil A is the only thing that comes close. This is probably the third or fourth time I am bragging on someone at Adams. It won’t be the last. Christian if you are out th

    What did you do today?

    The pressure washer fun continues, this last weekend was doing the driveway. While it may not look great, it does not look bad for being 49 year old concrete. The driveway was poured in 1972, so it is hard to complain about the condition overall. Fortunately I had some help in doing the driveway, but I still managed to spend about 12 hours of the weekend on it and got sunburned. If you look at my truck you might see the edge of something lurking behind it. We don't know if it is a project car or donor car yet, but something will happen with it.

    Installed the Workshop flooring. Same LVP as the house, durable and 100% waterproof. Next up is cabinets and benchtops, then get the woodworking tools set up. Interior is finished. Exterior almost done, just waiting on the asphalt driveway. Will be doing all the landscaping myself this summer, since the builder charges $6k for very basic front yard landscaping.

    Graphine detail spray

    Pictures would be best as always. I have had dots from wind carrying the product before. Chris may be on to something.... Ive been using GDS since it came out, 5 different cars, whites, grey, navy blue, black. Drying aid and on a dry vehicle, literally spray and wipe and zero issues. I also wonder what your previous LSP is, and wonder if it’s reacting with that in a weird manor???

    What did you do today?

    I completed a multi-day project which was a brand new 2021 Jeep Cherokee making it look like a new vehicle and then putting a coating on it. The Jeep is owned by the same person who had me do their Roush Mustang last year. I did get one picture that really shows the contrast between being in the sun and shade and I was able to try to Graphene Tire Dressing and I like the results. The third picture gives a perspective of the stars being out during the day. The picture is the hood that really shows the metal flake in the paint and a reflection of the trees. The pollen

    Annual Spray Coating

    I apply the Ceramic Spray Coating every year (overtop a Ceramic Coated vehicle), sometimes at a six month interval depending on time. Wash and Clay the vehicle. You'll have to determine which clay to use depending on the severity of contaminants embedded in the paint after washing; Fine, Medium Visco, or the Clay Mitt. If you've not washed at all throughout the winter it may need the more aggressive Visco Clay. Once clayed, evaluate the paint for marring and scratches. I usually get away with just some spot polishing, not the entire vehicle again. There's only so much paint on the vehicle, and

    drying

    You don't ever want to reuse your microfiber towels before cleaning them. Use the Microfiber Revitalizer if you have it, use LIQUID laundry soap if you don't (don't ever use powder), and either line dry or put them in the dryer with low or no heat and NO fabric softener in either the washer or dryer. No dryer sheets either. With proper care, they'll last years. I have some that are 10 years old at least!

    What’s Best for Silver?

    If you want the max amount of shine then polish the paint. Whatever you choose to use as the form of protection is the icing on the cake.

    What’s Best for Silver?

    If you don't have the time or don't want to go the full ceramic/graphene route, try the Graphene Ceramic Spray. You still need to do the full prep, but the spray is a lot more forgiving with the application and the results are fantastic. Easy maintenance with Graphene DS or CS3.

    New Vehicle process

    Love the Leather Conditioner, it works and smells great. Adams also now has a Leather and Interior Dressing that's a matte finish and no scent. Here's a side by side, The left is the Dressing, the middle is the is nothing/normal daily wear, and the right is the Conditioner. I'll also add that I've done a few cars now with the new (to you) Leather and Vinyl Coating, and the results were really impressive. Every owner has said it was better than new. It's easy to work with, and it also gives a slight leather scent to the car too that smells like the Conditioner. That wou

    Amazing how much better a "new" car looks after a decontamination and polish! Customers usually state something along the lines of, "it looks better than when I drove it home".

  33. Can you get part of the truck inside the garage? If so, Ceramic coat half one day, then the next day turn it around and do the other half. At Carlisle Events My Adam's Team will Ceramic Spray Coat or use the traditional 50 or 60ml bottles to Ceramic Coat vehicles on the Fairgrounds. We apply under our canopy to keep out of direct sunlight, then move the vehicle out into the sun to try to more quickly allow it to cure. We've not noticed, or heard of, any issues to date.

    Foam Cannon

    Will I have used the foam cannon now for over a few years and on all different sizes of cars and I usually have 1/4 left after covering the car completely. I then dump the remainder in my wash bucket. I have several cars that have more surface than the Z. Not sure why this is happening to you

  37. Hi fellow shine lovers! I have a 2012 Camaro that has pretty good paint, but it's not completely perfect. There is a chip here and there, small blemishes. I've completely polished all the swirls and scratches out, and it looks damn fine. Would it be worth using the ceramic spray coating on my car, or does the paint need to be 100% flawless? Thanks, Jake

  41. If you decide to coat it, which I also recommend for the best, longest lasting results, definitely remove residue like on the paint despite what the instructions say. Not doing so could lead to unwanted and difficult to remove streaks.

  44. Okay. I did some searches on YouTube and found quite a few videos where people did some test on different Spray coatings. Some Ceramic, some Graphene, etc., etc., etc. The have a little measuring tool that determine "Glossiness" in GU (Gloss Units?) and the differences were (IMO) minimal. They were all in the 92-96 range. I did notice that the difference in several tests between the Adam's CSC and Adam's GCSC was about 1.5 - 2 GU. The tester was all impressed by that and stated that he could see the difference. Admittedly, I am 66 years of age and my eyes aren't what they used to be but

  46. I agree with @Rich - your paint need not be "perfect" for whatever LSP you choose to use. The important thing is that you're happy with the way it looks and that the surface is clean/prepped for LSP application, so it bonds properly. Whatever you choose - Ceramic Spray, Graphene Spray, Sealant, or Wax - should enhance shine, provide some protection for the (corrected) paint, and simplify cleaning.

    Brand new car & white polish

    If it makes you feel any better, I'm 74 and didn't start using a polisher until around 10 years ago. Started with a Porter Cable which killed my shoulder, and then switched to the Swirl Killer polishers and that's all I use now. I do very little hand polishing now...........one black car, one white car, and both get the full treatments. Go for it!
