Junkman, just wanted to say thanks. Detailed my camaro yesterday after watching your videos and it came out great. Love the Adams products. Thanks for giving me the confidence to do it myself. looking forward to doing it again and getting it even better. Funny, I kept saying to myself, white product, white pad, white product, white pad haha.

Junkman, I have a blk 2rs...I also have yellow microfiber 80%polyester 20% ??? made in china from Costco. Do the two mix? I'm thinking not because now I have car that looks like sh*t. Just washed and waxed it using Meguier's carnuba gold, yellow towels.....scratches all over it, hardly any before. Also I have a Cal duster I've had for while, many car shows with award winning 68 ram air gto. I'd dust that thing at the shows and detail with wisards detail same yellow towels it looked great. Can you wash a duster? I used on my dusty my 65 vw bettle convert too. I think the duster has scratched the RS too.....using very lightly, Is it the water based paint too soft?
I'm totally frustrated.....my 08 black ltz avey had harder paint "no scratches" drove it in MN winters too! HELP!

Yikes! Chuck those costco microfibers! At least for use on your clear coat; I use those things for cleaning the engine bay and dusting the interior, nothing more. I do use them around the house to clean up baby messes now too. Get some nice microfibers for your ride and use them on your car only! Take good care of them and they will last you quite awhile!

That's military training for ya'! It automatically kicks in when you're working. No thinking necessary!

Talk about garbage, those Costco towels are hell on your paint. I literally use those to check my oil and clean my hands. They are total garbage. If it says made in China, you DO NOT want it touching your paint.

To apply wax to a car with a bunch of swirls is like putting lipstick on a pig. Luckily, you have this video series to use and correct your paint. When I fix a swirled up car, I ask for at least 3 weeks and $2000. I will know every square inch of that car when I'm done and it will look like it was painted.

As for your duster, you need to check out this thread. You are using it wrong and you may need to replace it. They can be washed but I would NEVER do that to mine. The dirtier they get, the better they work. That is, if you use it correctly to begin with.

You have some video watching to do! Most of my videos are at this forum but all of my videos and write-ups are located here.

It sounds like you watched the wrong video series. Did you watch the ones in this thread or did you watch them at You Tube?

Yea, those videos are over 2 years old. The new series is in the first post of this thread. You need to read all of the text associated with each video and thus, you need to return to this thread to get the link for the next video after watching one. You watched the wrong series.

Not familiar with the Wizard label but if you're cooking, I ain't being picky!
