  1. As a rule of thumb, any and every chemical, paint or other liquid should be shaken before being used unless the instructions state not to, such as carbonated soda. Liquids will separate over time and this is not unique to Adam' products, it is pretty much every product. I will state that I agree that as a general statement on every bottle and gallon there could be a line added to state "shake before using" to leave no doubt.
  2. My bad also - I was referring to the Paste Wax.
  3. I also have a couple of vehicles with the Ceramic Paste Wax and absolutely love it. The one thing to keep in mind with the Ceramic Paste Wax is that a little bit goes a long way, so use a very thin coat.
  4. Hi Jack, I'm going to presume you meant CS3 for the alternate product. In my case, I have about a 1/2 gallon of Boost left so I alternate between CS3 and Boost. To be honest, I'm not sure I'll purchase any more Boost once it is gone given how great of a job CS3 does.

    Welcome to the Forum Joey.
  6. Hi Ellis, If I was still in Tonawanda, NY 3 days a week, I'd gladly help out, but only until the snow flies. Good luck with your coating and Chris's advice above is spot on.
  7. Mine will look like that during pollen season and a misty rain and it just rinses right off. Knowing what was there before what it looks like after a actual rinse with some water volume will tell us a lot.
  8. Welcome to the Forum Jeremy.
  9. The best thing that I have found is to almost eliminate the brake dust from sticking in the first place. Ceramic or Graphene Coated wheels and the use of Ceramic Brake Pads makes for an easy rinse. I also use towels for the wheels and other non-body areas, but almost always just need the shampoo that goes on the rest of the vehicle. The Ceramic Brake Pads are not cheap, but they work well and the brake dust is almost non-existent. If you are using regular brake pads, then I follow the same guidelines as the members above have noted.
  10. On the left side, there is a small shed going there that will be locked and bolted to the concrete. It will have an electric outlet, a place for the hose reel and the pressure washer, plus the buckets. As long as any plumbing is external to the garage I don't have to do the water inspections since you can put a hose outlet in an external shed without the need to put in a sewer qualified drain inside the building. This picture should give you an idea of what I'm doing with the open area and it will go to the edge of the ramp. Open the door that will go around to the side of the garage and latch open and everything you need for the wash is right there. From the end of the ramp to the end of the building is 7 feet wide and 3 feet deep, so I may do a 6x3 foot external shed and add shelves for plants on it next to the garage door to make it look better. I do appreciate the ideas and yes Rich, we already have the electronics for security and the exterior lights on order for visibility. As for interior lights, there will be 20 4 foot 5000k 4800lm LED lights on 6 zones. I doubt that I will ever need or want them all on at the same time, but no matter what I'm doing in there or where, I'll be able to see.
  11. Hard to believe that I started this thread in the Spring of 2020 and here it is Fall of 2021. Thanks to a couple of setbacks, the first being a soil issue and the second and longer term item being the pandemic. The building has finally been put up and now I can start working on the interior and the garage door can be ordered. We'll get the electrician in next week to finalize the quotes. I haven't decided if I'm going to have him do all the electrical or just the service entrance and breaker box. We've used this electrician multiple times and they do good work for a good price. The first picture is from standing inside the attached (wife's) garage, the second is from the front yard and the third is the interior. The garage door opening is 9' x 16' which should let me get anything in there that I desire. The cross braces on the ceiling are 12' high which will give plenty of head room to put any vehicle that will fit through the door in the air at least 2 feet. I've pretty much figured out how I want the lights set up, the only question is whether I do 2, 3 or 4 zones.
  12. When I get back to Florida in November, I have 4 carts to do with Graphene so I should have some pictures to share. I do plan on doing the windshields on them. The picture I provided was pre-covid and it has been over 18 months since I've been in Florida.
  13. Hi Ashley and welcome to the forum. As for the Golf Car windshield, I use Hand Polish. If it is has many swirl marks and light scratches, start go with a Orange Hex where needed, otherwise the Blue Hex will take care of it. Once it has been polished and cleaned you can use Adam's Glass Sealant on it. The picture shows how the Golf Cart can come out with Adan's Hand Polish, Adam's Leather Conditioner and Ceramic Spray Coating. The windshield is in the cart and up in the picture.
  14. Finally, No matter what you read or see on web sites, you tube or even on a label - level everything that you apply a coating to.
  15. My son-in-laws help me on a regular basis and all too often they'll have streaks and I won't. 9 out of 10 times it is because they apply too much product and/or have a towel that is too wet. A little goes a long ways and it is easier to add a bit more product than soak up or wipe off excessive product when someone uses too much.

    Welcome to the Forum Nick.
  17. Welcome to the forum Maceo. For questions #2, it is all about gallons per minute (GPM) being sent to the pressure washer, not the pressure of the water reaching it. The most common methods from a tank are to use gravity with an adequately sized pipe based on the height of the drop. If you have the tank on level ground, then you would need a submersible pump or direct attachment pump that could push water at an appropriate GPM. The Adam's pressure washer is a ~1.4 to ~1.7 GPM unit, so for a simple equation for the gravity method would be a 4 foot drop with a 1 inch inside diameter pipe which should provide a volume to sustain the input/output required by the pressure washer to maintain the top end of ~1.7 GPM. There are many variables involved in the GPM calculation including the rise, pipe diameter, line length if you are using a gravitational method. This is where a pump can eliminate the rise calculations by using a GPM and pressure method of the distance of the hose. A submersible pump that can maintain ~1.7 GPM can be had for less than $100. However, according to the talk you are using you may need to cut a bigger hole or use an external pump with will run $50 or so higher than a submersible. There are multiple web sites available to calculate the GPM from tanks of various sizes, depths, heights and travel distances that can help you determine the optimal configuration for a gravity tank feeder system. Tank feeder systems are often used for gardening, greenhouses and hydroponics This is similar to the system that I will be putting in for the last tank and will be using a gravity feed. My system will be three tanks linked together with a filter between each tank. The ensure that all the impurities are filtered out prior to getting to the sprayer and pressure washer.
