  1. Dan hit the nail on the head with his answer. I use only the Graphine Ceramic Spray (not the full Graphene) and I've had it last nearly a year. But like Dan said, you have to follow up with the CB, CS3, or the Graphene DS (which is what I use). And I honestly thing 3 washes is overkill. Wash, clay, polish , wipe down with prep, and apply the GSC. And WELCOME to the forum.
  2. Been a hand polishing guy for years with my cars, and still am with my Vette (for the most part). To get the biggest bang for the buck on my white Vette, I use Ceramic Paste Wax and then top it with Graphene Spray Detailer. AMAZING the way it shines, very deep and wet. You may have had bad results with the Graphene DS because it's a different formula than Carnuba based products. Ceramics with ceramics for best results. But like Falcaineer said, you'll never get great results without doing a proper paint correction and polishing first.
  3. It's great for drying your vehicle, but on low setting, it's good for the motor, rag tops, wheel wells, etc.
  4. I wouldn't trust Tilex or any bleach product on paint. Same as I don't trust melamine sponges (Magic Erasers) on paint.
  5. If you can........the Master Blaster is the ultimate dryer. Hose is way long enough to get all around the car. Mounts on the wall so you're no pulling it around and risking banging into your ride. Hi and low settings. And it will blow the crap out of anything on your driveway or patio, etc.
  6. Yep. Agreed with everyone. EASY to use, lasts a long time, and gives a great shine. You'll be happy.

    Welcome to the forum!
  8. I think your best answer is going to be to take it back to whoever applied it and have them fix it. Because it's clear to everyone that it wasn't done right.............if at all.
  9. Absolutely. You want the graphene to adhere to the best conditioned paint it can. Wash, clay, polish, prep wipe, and apply the Graphene. You don't have to use a machine to polish, but it gives the best results. Most important thing is to follow all the steps, and maintain afterward for longevity.
  10. Welcome Jeremy! Can't wait to see pics of your ride! Yes, you can use the GCS over the PPF. No issues at all. I honestly have never used a power washer on my rides, even my daily driver and I live in snow country. Foam gun works just fine for me. Glad to have you join us.
  11. Introduce yourself in the New Member forum. Tell us about you rides and what Adam's products you use. Welcome.
  12. Obviously something wasn't applied correctly. Or if you had it done somewhere, they didn't do what they were supposed to do. Ceramic coated vehicles won't look like that ater rain. Or it may, if there was a lot of smoke or pollutants in the air when it rained. That almost looks like wet ash.
  13. Have motion lights put outside, and maybe a Ring system for security. Motion lights are one thing I have around my entire house and garage, and haven't regretted it once. About the only thing I'd have done different on your garage is I would have extended the concrete past the door. I'm such a klutz that I'd come out the door, turn right, and drop off that thing and break a leg. But that's going to be great once it's all done. You'll get years of pleasure and good times with it for sure. Thanks for the update Ray. Lookin real good.
