I just wanted to say hi to everyone and thank Adams for making such wonderful products and how to video’s for us garage detailers out there.
I started using Adams metal polishes on my “bare” aluminum wheels on my Z06 years ago. It performed well beyond anything I could buy in any store. That was the beginning of my adiction to Adams products.
After some convincing from my friends that I should get my paint corrected/ceramic coating on my new to me 2011 manual 6 speed CTS-V. I decided to do some research on what it all was about. I went to various web sites and watched tons of videos. I quickly learned that this was easily a $1000 venture to have done professionally. Having a complete paint correction performed and a full Ceramic coating applied was not a small job.
The Adams how to videos helped me feel confidant that I can learn to do this myself. I greatly enjoyed learning something new as well.
I managed to get a Porter Cable polisher, Adams 3 step pads, Adams 3 step polish, Adams backing plate and Adams Ceramic coating kit.
I later learned that I should have gotton the Adams Swirl Killer polisher. Its on my Christmas wish list for my wife right now. 8-). The PC worked ok though but now I know better. The higher quality Adams polisher with a longer throw would have made my job easier. I also learned that the smaller Adams Swirl Killer MINI would have been great to have. All of the tight spots on the front grill, mirrors, pillars, etc would have been much easier to correct with the right tool for the job. I ordered one today with all the 4” pads. I can also use it on my daily driver and wifes SUV to clean up some scratches and headlight polishing.
I’m still learning what works best but it seems Adams has me covered on what works best.
I must say it was a lot of detailed work paint correcting and ceramic coating, but the results turned out to be amazing. I think I did well for my first time.
I have some info on what I did on my web site if anyone wants to see.
Keep up the good job of providing us great products to keep our cars looking new !!!
Thanks Adams !
