  1. Friday I two bucket washed the SS using Adam’s Graphene Shampoo. The SS is parked until I go back to the office. Yesterday I went to Menard’s and bought more LED lights for the garage, nearly 35,000 lumens total if the manufacturers claims can be believed. My far better half said “wow, it’s too bright in here!”
  2. I’ve had the same issue. Only way I could get rid of the dots was to go over it with a plush MF towel that was damp with Graphene Detail Spray. I no longer use GDS as a drying aid.
  3. Rinseless washed the SS in preparation for several days of rain. Ceramic Boost on paint, wheels and windows. Pulled the drivers WeatherTech mat, rinsed the salt off then cleaned with their stuff. I’ll be ordering the Adam’s version soon.
  4. ^ Looking at the first pic I thought “why would you power wash an old cracked sidewalk.” 🤷🏻‍♂️ Doh! Good job on the power wash Ray. 👍🏼
  5. Went to Discount Tire to switch winter wheels out for regular A/S set.
  6. So the last time our rides were cleaned was nearly 7 weeks ago. Since then we’ve had over two feet of snow, temps well below zero Fahrenheit, freezing fog and driving on roads covered in all sorts of de-icers and snow melters. Both vehicles were beyond filthy. Since it was 54*F and sunny it was time to do something about the dirty rides. Yesterday the wife’s Beast got its spa treatment which included two foam gunnings and two rinses followed by a bath with many MF towels in a bucket. Wheels and tires cleaned with Adam’ s Tire and Wheel Cleaner. Wheels got Ceramic Boost and tires got
  7. Moving snow on a near daily basis here as well. Tonight I chipped ice at the bottom of the driveway for a good half hour or so. Quick survey: Rinseless wash? 😁
  8. Thanks so much for the pad and poster !!! Poster is very cool, I collect Mustang posters and will fit in perfect !

  9. No need. It’s good knowing it will get used instead of sitting in my basement, unused, for who knows how long.
  10. I have just the one and it’s yours. It’s been in a Rubbermaid bin for years and I have no use for it. Just PM me your address and I’ll send it on its way.
  11. Pulled the wife’s Beast out in the driveway so I could give the SS a much deserved rinse and rinseless wash. I sprayed the car down using Adam’s Rinseless at rinseless wash ratio and let it dwell. I then cleaned the wheels and tires using Adam’s Wheel & Tire cleaner with Adam’s wheel and tire brushes which are fantastic! I’ve used so many different types of brushes over the years and was always “meh” with their performance. Too many times I finished cleaning the wheels only to find missed spots. So far I’m 8 for 8 with no missed spots and the previous brushes all found their way to the re
  12. 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. Wheels and tires cleaned with Adam’s Wheel and Tire clean
