P.S. Adam's employees: do you know someone took your videos, posted it to the internet, and monetized it? The link is from the person in question

Looks like Mrcarproducts has done the same for Chemical guys, Meguiar's, Auto Glym etc as well..
Guess it's pointless since he/she is located in Belgium?

I use waterless wash instead of the APC. Works just as fine for me and dont have to worry about how long it sits
