  1. CarMax will be fixing the chipped/flaky paint along with all other scratches/chips/dings including curb rash on the wheels. This will delay my paint correction and Graphene Ceramic Coating but I will have a way better starting point when this is all complete. Stand by for before/during/after pictures.
  2. I asked them not to touch the paint but they still put the bow on it. The hood is covered in scratches/swirls but so is the whole car. I knew it would need polished anyway. I plan on correcting the paint and using Graphene Ceramic on everything. I only had time to hand wash and spray wax before we left for the weekend but it cleaned up well. CarMax has to fix a few issues (see flaky paint below, hoping for a repaint) before I work on polishing and coating. I can tell it's going to look amazing when it's all cleaned up.
  3. Our Kia Forte was totaled around the end of January. We were looking for a smallish SUV. The top contenders were Jeep Compass and Mazda CX-5. I looked for Crossover/SUVs with Turbo Charged engines and this popped up. It was right at the top of our budget but I figured we could at least test drive it. I found a local Edge Sport in white to test drive before paying CarMax to transfer the red one. One wide open pull out of the parking lot was all we needed to decide on this car. We didn't even test drive anything else. The 2.7TT EcoBoost is amazing and with 29k miles, it's nearly new.
  4. It does smell a lot better. I don't think either scent lingers after being rinsed off though.
  5. The abbreviations are here. The forum used to allow you to hover over the acronym and it would so the full name. Maybe that's something the admins can look into.
  6. Happy to see the forum is back. It's been tough finding something else to kill time during work lol
  7. I just felt that for the amount paid, I should be the one to damage it. I'll keep the replacement that comes. I just hope it's in better condition. This is the first item that I've gotten from Adam's that wasn't packed that well. I assume Adam's receives them already boxed up though so it's not really thier fault.
  8. I figured. No harm, no foul. I'm trying not to taste it. I think something was Sugar Cookie last winter and it was one of my favorite scents then too
  9. I think it was just typos in the label. I actually love the smell. It's in our main bathroom. There were a couple smells that were off to me but it's possible I felt that way because my nose didn't know what it was supposed to be smelling. I love the peppermint CS3.
  10. Good tip. I dropped it off last night and didn't do that but I'll remember to do that with future things I have to ship. I'm hoping the next one is in good shape and arrives before the 4th. The box had definitely been beat around. I was a little surprised at the lack of packaging. The stool was just in a plastic bag and it seemed like the box was a smidge too small. It would be nice to have a little bit of paper stuffing to protect it a little more.
  11. I ordered the stool. It's very sturdy and would have been a great addition to my garage. It was beat up when I received it though. Powdercoating was scratched off and it was starting to rust. Once of the brackets that attached to the leg was bent and scratched off a bunch of powdercoating the first time I opened it. I emailed customer service and they provided a return label. I said I'd like a replacement if this is not normal for the stools but I guess it's the normal condition for them since they just provided a return label. I'm pretty disappointed because this seems like it is way better t
  12. Anyone else noticed the Holday Hand Soap label says "Adam's Detail Spray Scent Hand Soap" several times? I was looking for the scent so I didn't have to got to the website and noticed it.
  13. Thanks! That helps a lot. I've got a detail on a large vehicle coming up the first week of December. I know I'm going to need something to reach the roof and maybe the tops of the windows. I'm hoping to find something local I can compare to see what I feel comfortable with. The Adam's one looks really solid. And I like the grip tape on this one. I don't think any others that I've seen have that.
  14. Can someone that owns this step stool expalin these measurements? I would think the length and width would stay the same, or maybe a little shorter with the legs not spread. Can someone tell me what the length and width of the working surface is and how tall it is when it's set up?
  15. Thanks everyone! I'll wipe them down and apply a few coats of leather conditioner. I tested it on the heel of the boot and it looks like pretty good, a little darker but still nice.
  16. My cat chewed the lace in half on one of my Timberlands so I decided I'd clean them up while I had the laces pulled out to replace. I used Leather and Interior Cleaner (maybe diluted 1:1) previously and it seemed to work fine. They look like they could use some moisture though. Has anyone used conditioner on this type of boot? I know there are specific products but I thought I'd try something I already have.
  17. Dang, the SS is one of my dream cars. I love big power RWD sedans, SS, CTS-V, etc. I found a CPO 2017 in Green. It has 14k miles but is priced high, imo. I'll keep saving and hope I can get into one soon.
  18. whoa, whoa, whoa. 20% off?! Of the SS?! I need a time machine.
  19. Is that on the website somewhere? I checked and didn't see it. Is that the same with the regular Ceramic Paint Coating?
  20. When I'm prepping a car, I'll use strip wash in my wash bucket and a 50/50 mix of mega foam and strip wash in my foam gun. It seems to work well for me.
  21. Has anyone tried this? I've been wanting to try it for a while. I haven't had any/many hairy cars to do so I haven't pulled the trigger. I believe it's supposed to work well with sand so maybe I'll pick it up around the time we got to Florida this year. https://www.buffbrite.com/collections/vacuum-products/products/pet-hair-attachment-coming-soon
  22. HEIC is a format that Apple uses. Are you downloading them from iCloud before uploading them here? I noticed issues with the HEIC format when working on my website. If you download as "Most Compatible", it downloads as jpeg. I'm not sure if this is how you're doing it but it's helped me.
  23. Also missing Strip Wash but I think most of us understand it's use. I'd like to see Rinseless Wash and Waterless Wash as well just to show there's adding of protection. I guess the chart is more focused on products that go in a foam gun or a wash bucket.
  24. I worked on a Black Audi Q5 last week. I hate black paint but I also love black paint lol
