So this came in the mail...

First time ordering with GPC, and they screwed it up! My SHR came with the wrong top! Haha, oh just kidding. They were extremely easy to work with over the phone when I called confused about MSS being listed as Machine Wax on their website still, I loved how fast the shipping was... and free was a plus too!

I'm pumped to get started tomorrow, if weather permitting Will defiantly be repeating business with them when the time comes, and I always smile when a company will leave a personal thank you with your order.

A+ Jason and team!.. now on to find a top to substitute..

to be honest, there is a very easy solution.....if you REALLY don't need to use the SSR.....as you will use the SHR more often......just swap out those two tops, and some where down the line, when you empty one of the products, put its top on the SSR.

I approve of this message.










Oh, and if you've never used Adams before DO NOT use while hungry. You may want to eat it.

Smells sooooo good.

I live about 45 minutes from Grabiak (GPC). When you stop in, they act like you have been friends forever.

I live 4 hours away and only let GPC touch my car. Everytime I go up there I'm treated like royalty or something. Jason,Ray, and Jane go all out with hospitality. They just cant be beat .

GPC is great to work with, and the free shipping is a big plus.

So I picked up a bottle of glaze from a local vendor today, they didn't have any hex applicators. They had some microfiber pads from adam's I've never seem before, they looked handy either way. Are these okay to apply glaze with?

Should be fine. You could even use a mf cloth if you wanted. Its just about ease of application and how much product is wasted from soaking into the applicator.
