    Last day on this sale, ends tonight at midnight MST.

    CLICK HERE TO SHOP THE SALE



    On a new truck, start with a good wash, then use the clay bar to remove any bonded contaminates like rail dust, then I would use Paint Sealant instead of wax, since the Paint Sealant will last longer and provide better protection.

    Also, check out the videos for some how-to instructions.

    Thanks for giving us a try! Let me know how you like the products, or if you have any questions.

    After washing, use Detail Spray as you dry. This product provides lubrication as you towel dry, and also leaves some shine.

    To give the Paint Sealant a boost, you can use H2O Guard & Gloss every month or two. It is a water-activated acrylic sealant that is applied as you dry.

    The Paint Sealant is very slick.

    Which GG polisher do you have?

    Also, check out this thread for more info, and in Post #2 there are links to some write-ups.

    Looks like that machine comes with a 6" backing plate, which is too big for our 6" and 5.5" pads that need a 5" backing plate. So you would have to change the backing plate to 5".

    GG has a 5" backing plate that you can use on your machine, as long as your machine uses a 5/16"-24 threaded shaft, and NOT the four screw mounting system on the original GG Random Orbital.

    If you machine has the threaded shaft, you can also use the Adam's 5" Porter Cable Backing Plate as it has the same 5/16" threaded shaft as the GG plate.

    Thanks for the info and super fast response!

    I have their 5" plate as well. So, I should be all set. I'm putting together an order and it looks like some of the items on sale are out of stock. Could they be ordered at the sale price and shipped when available?

    Sorry, the system won't allow a product to be ordered if it is out-of-stock.

    Which items are you wanting to order that are out-of-stock?

    Hmm..I must have tried to buy the xmas detail spray. I'll just get the regular stuff. Thought there was something else, don't see it now.

    Are the borderless gray towels appropriate for almost anything or would you suggest something else?

    Ah... the X-mas Detail Spray was limited edition, so it won't be back in stock.

    If you do find something else that you want and it is out-of-stock, just let me know and I will get you the 20% discount when it gets back in stock.

    The Borderless Grey Edgeless Towels can be used for many tasks; applying H2O Guard & Gloss, removing sealant/wax/polish residue, applying Detail Spray. Being a plush towel, I typically use them for tasks on paint, and not for interior work. I like to dedicate my different towels to specific uses, like Edgeless Utility Towels for interior work, and I use the Single Softs for applying sealant to the wheels.

    The best deal in the Borderless Grays is the 24 pack.

    If you are not sure about which towels, or need more than one kind, the Adam's Microfiber Bundle is a great deal with the current 20% off sale.
