August 6, 2019 - Adam's Pressure Washer Testing
The Pressure Washing Project: Episode 15 - Adam's & Realm Pressure Washers Tested (31 minutes, 30 seconds)
In this video, I return to testing pressure washers, this time pitting the recently released Adam’s washer versus an eerily similar Realm BY02-BIMK
Before extracting some real-world data, we take some time to not-so-gently disassemble the Adam’s unit to see the internals in hopes of being able to upgrade some of the components.
After using approximately 37 different screwdrivers, I ditched my fancy tools and used some good, old-fashioned muscle to open things up.
While the Adam’s unit is not a perfect fit for adding accessories, we were able to piece together a package that could improve the user experience.
After putting things back together, we ventured outside to put these pressure washers to the test. As is the case with all of the previous pressure washers we’ve tested, we measured output in PSI, current draw, flow (GPM) and Sound Pressure Level (SPL).
Go straight to the 23:50 mark of the video to see the Adam’s washer get its revenge and ol' Matty gets a little bit of comeuppance.
If possible, we make sure to test each unit with stock equipment before adding the special OG upgrades and re-testing all measures. Each of these is outfitted with an MTM PF22 Foam Cannon and the OG Camry gets a little foam bath.
Finally, I recap the results and share that the next units to be tested will be the Stanley lineup and AR 630TSS Hot.
Published specs are 1.5 GPM, 2400 PSI. In our testing, we found it to be 1.53 GPM, 1300 PSI.
If you’ve got one of these and would like to give it the OG treatment, you can purchase that package here:

Published specs are 1.75 GPM, 2600 PSI. In our testing, we found it to be 1.4 GPM, 1300 PSI.

August 5, 2019 - Stoner Invisible Glass
OG Interior Products - Glass Cleaning (17 minutes, 49 seconds)
It took me by surprise that invisible glass would become my glass cleaner in the store. Michele and my mother have been using this stuff for the house windows forever and it never crossed my mind I should try it on the vehicles.
This is an alcohol based cleaner with no soaps, detergents, scents, or dyes, which can leave streaky residues. This is a non-ammonia product so it's a tint safe product. I'll also be selling the Reach & Clean tool. I've been using a tool like this for years now. This tool makes cleaning your interior glass a lot easier since you don't have to stretch over the dash or rear seats to try and get into the corners of your glass. Using this will help you get completely spot free glass. This is a good tool to have in your detailing kit.

August 7, 2019 - Dundon Motorsports Tour
The Engineering Behind Making Naturally Aspirated Horsepower: Dundon Motorsports Tour (33 minutes, 14 seconds of engineering awesomeness)
In this video, I had the chance to visit my friends at Dundon Motorsports. I love touring businesses and learning how they build things. I met Charles and Jaime in 2015 when I was fed up with my search for an exhaust for my GT3. I was on iteration number 11 and getting nowhere. They did the work to create a great sound, but also power-making exhaust. It was great to get to see what they are working on today in their place.

August 8, 2019 - YouTube Live Stream/Dialed In Podcast
Dialed In Podcast - Live: 8-8-19 (90 minutes)
On this week's episode, I rant about the issues faced when customers contact companies directly (Pressol in this case) as we're trying to work with that company to improve the end product. We also discuss new products coming to the store and what we feel are the best smelling detailing products out there. You can subscribe via iTunes here: Dialed In Podcast
August 8, 2019 - P&S Brake Buster
OG Wheel & Tire Products - P&S Brake Buster - Wheel and Tire Cleaner (12 minutes, 39 seconds)
P&S sent me this product for me to test (I tossed it out the first time). After asking Bob Phillips to send me some Xpress Interior Cleaner with my Bead Maker shipment he also threw in some Brake Buster (again) for me to test again. The beauty of Brake Buster is that it will work on wheels and tires, this eliminates one product from the process. After testing back and forth with Adam's Wheel Cleaner and Adam's Tire & Rubber Cleaner I found Brake Buster to be equivalent. One thing I noticed about Brake Buster is that it likes to lather and create great lubricity which is great for wheels that get a lot of brake dust on them.

August 9, 2019 - Hyde's Serum Rustopper
OG Wheel & Tire Products - Hyde's Serum Rustopper - Rust Inhibitor (9 minutes, 18 seconds)
Hyde's Serum Rustopper (Rust Stopper) is a product I've been using forever to help stop my steel rotors slinging brown rust slurry all over my clean wheels. After starting Obsessed Garage, this was something I wanted to add into my store because everyone was asking what it is and where to get it.
Until recently you couldn't find Rustopper anywhere because it was all out of stock. Come to find out, the guy making this stuff is mixing it in his garage with the help of his wife and just couldn't do it anymore. I wanted to change that, so I prepaid him to make me a giant batch.

August 10, 2019 - OG Pacific Northwest Gathering
Concluding My Pacific Northwest Trip: 997.1 C2S Up Mount Rainier (10 minutes, 8 seconds)
We didn't get a very clean run up to Mount Rainier, but I was able to capture a bit of footage with my friend Dave at the wheel of his 997.1 C2S.
