  1. I have not done a ceramic coating yet to compare, but Slick and Slide is the best of the non-stick products I've tried from Adam's. Both my cars are coated with it, dropped 2 towels before I realized how slick it was. I can barely get foam to sit on them from the normal foam gun (still need to try the cannon since coating).
  2. Slick and Slide is becoming one of my favorite products. I have gone over my Challenger twice now and the slickness is crazy, the foam would barely sit on the surface from the foam gun when I washed it. I have it layered over H2O G&G and that seems to work great, tight beads good panel clearing with pooling,
  3. My first thought is it may require wet sanding to nock down the high areas before attempting any polishing.
  4. I have a couple of these same towels from previous Mystery Boxes (might have been a trunk organizer one) and they seem like smaller Ultra Plush Drying towels. I'm not sure if it was an early name for the current Mini plush Drying Towel or not, but they look very similar to my Ultra Plush towels, just smaller. Should be safe on paint, but could be used to drying wheels, door jams, trunk sills (or whatever you call the area under the trunk lid that is not the opening that can hold water and schmutz). https://adamspolishes.com/collections/car-drying/products/adams-mini-plush-drying-to
  5. That looks great Rich! Love the bottle rack additions.
  6. Had one nasty scuff down the side from the parking lot at the wife's work, but this combo made short work of it...
  7. Polished the wife's 2018 Mustang Eco-Boost (Royal Crimson Metallic), strip washed, clayed (minimal contaminates), 1 pass of Correcting Polish with the 15mm Swirl Killer (so smooth compared to the old Porter Cable), did a pass of Finishing Polish over the roof and didn't see a big difference so I switched up to sealing with Paint Sealant. Took a bit longer than I hoped and wore me out, that swirl killer is smooth, but heavy bit of kit to wield all day.
  8. All in all it took around 2 hours. I haven't polished the paint yet, so I used Scotts shop towels to clean off the tar. I had tried a different product once before and after 20mins on the one of the sections behind the rear tire with almost no change. This stuff was like magic, spray it on, let it sit a 1 min, wipe and all but the thickest parts were gone. Another amazing product!
  9. Ok, Adam's Tar is amazing! The tar on the rockers just melted off, wiped off the paint with barely any work. I did resort to a medium soft brush to agitate the product on the plastic areas in the thickest parts. As far as I can see all of it came off, may look at doing another round if I spot more in the plastic.
  10. Thanks for the info Chris, just making sure it would be fine. Can't wait to see how well it works, will log some pics as I go.
  11. I get a slight residue if the soap dries on the surface, does not rinse off fully, but as mentioned above some detail spray during drying knocks it right off and has seemed to cause no adverse effects.
  12. I have old dried on road tar on my Challenger (used car, came with it installed). I have some of the Adam's Tar and it is my first choice, but much of the tar is on the lower textured plastic on the car and the instructions don't mention Tar's use on that type of surface. Does anyone have experience with Adam's Tar on exterior plastic or is that a bad idea? Hoping to work on it tomorrow so I can get the factory splash guards installed before we get ack into rain up here. Thanks for any help/ideas anyone has.
  13. Since it isn't right hand drive I'm guessing you Holdenized a Chevy SS? Looks great either way, would love to import a Maloo SS with a manual. Didn't get to wash today, but with the way the pollen is hitting out here both cars are tinted yellow/green (have to keep the windows closed as you drive off to not coat the interior).
  14. Gave the wife's Mustang (2018 Eco-Boost w/ 10-speed Auto) and My 2018 Challenger R/T (5.7L w/ 8-speed auto) quick washes
