Someone...OK everyone said don't take your car to a car wash.
I took it to a car wash and the brushless brushes (the what?) stopped right over my rear wheel and just kept spinning there until I drove out.
So I give you the mistake with the correction
OUCH! There's a lesson learned, huh! Nice job on the polish though...looks like it was due anyway!

When you have a spare moment, cruise through our videos. We spend a lot of time and effort on them to help take some of the confusion out of the world of detailing.

Instructional Detailing Videos

We also offer a forum discount (listed in my sig) for you guys here as well if you ever want to pick up and goods form us.

One last thing...PLEASE don't wash your Jeep with a brush. Wash pads are a much better option.





Here is one of your videos I really have a problem with. The person doing this video keeps talking about protection that Adams Waxes offer, but all I see here is a greasy glaze applied with more greasy wax applied over it.
Anyone who cannot see where this is leading to with hours of work to remove this so called sacrificial barrier, and then apply more of the same thing that caused problem in the first place is not suffering from a sickness IMO. Although, it is just bad info repeated over and over as fact.

WOW, another story that makes me shake my head. It is not the brush that caused your problem, it is the wax! Too bad you cannot see the real problem.

Explain WHY. Break it down for us sick simpletons, please.

I would also like your take on your perfect auto finish care practices. I've heard how you feel it is done wrong. What is your right way?

Honestly, are you serious? How many times have I explained it to you?
It really is not that complicated, but for some reason you want to make that.
