Hey Junkman!! Wanted to let you know that Ive took the plunge and have switched to Adams products and Im slowly getting Rob to see the light . Like most people I like the results you get from Adams products but what I love most is the simple and effective way that it works.It allows a complete rookie like myself to get great results!!! Maybe one day Ill know as much about car care as you have probably forgoten!! With just that much knowledge,Id still be ahead of the game!!! Thanks

Adam's is one of the easiest lines to understand because of the limited amount of products they have. But even with a robust line like Meguiar's, which I used in this video series, you can still use the K.I.S.S. method to get your paint back to perfect.

Im sorry if this is a dumb thing to ask but I did a search for KISS method and the only thing that came up that might have told me what that means was one of your videos that was marked private. What does it mean? Thanks

It's a military term. It stands for "Keep it simple stupid." That's the military way. They don't want you over-complicating things by thinking too much.

Don't feel bad, you asked the question that 50 other people wanted to ask.

Need good Foam Gun Alternative + Wax tips

Hey Junkman,

I live in an apartment and do not have access to the kind of hose that would attach to the Foam Gun. What alternative methods would you recommend for initial wash for a standard coin-op water source?

Also, what cloths are recommended/optimal for applying wax?

I have a black 2LT and also have a swirl problem as well. I'm going to get started watching the vids

Then you're basically screwed. You have got to figure out a way to pre-soak the car down. Some car washes have a pre-soak option on the dial but the amount of soap it puts out usually sucks. Maybe you could use that soap brush and let the thick suds DRIP all over the car (whatever you do, don't allow that brush to touch your paint). You're in a pickle.

As for spreading wax, I use a black pad and my PC. I don't spread it by hand but I remove it by hand. I explain what towel I use to remove my wax in the videos.

There is so much good information in these videos, you were right about simplifying it down so a 10-year old could do this.

Thanks!

After the 205?

Junkman,

I watched all five of these videos, took notes and bought the stuff you recommended minus the Zaino blonde due to stock out. Really good stuff. You made me laugh and kept me glued to the set. Incredible.

So, after 205 then what? Wax? Zaino Z-8? Nothin'? And why?

Thanks, man.
-CRT
