  1. I didn't, but I'm not sure what others may have seen. It was a busy day and, as president of the host/organizing Club, I was pretty focused on meeting people and taking pictures. (Sorry!)
  2. We had a great turnout for today's Detail Clinic! It was good to see enthusiasts from several different clubs/forums including the Colorado Shelby Club (CSC), Looking Glass Corvette Association (LGCA), Colorado Dodge Challengers Club (CDCC), Chevy SS Forum, Tacoma World (TW), Rocky Mountain Region Shelby American Automobile Club (SAAC) Colorado, and an Adam's enthusiast from Los Angeles who drove 17 hours to attend! Hosted by my good friend Adam and his professional detailing team, the day started with a tour of the HQ facility and operations, followed by the Clinic itself. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves, learned at least a little, and took advantage of generous discounts offered to attendees. One of CSC's newest member's 2011 GT500 was chosen to be detailed during the demonstration. It left looking better than when it arrived and the owner took home a load of Adam's products, in appreciation for letting them use his car!
  3. LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING EVERYONE TOMORROW MORNING!
  4. Today is the last day to RSVP for next week's Detail Clinic. (To those who've already done so - thank you!) If you haven't already done so, PLEASE make plans to attend. These FREE events are an informative and fun way to meet other enthusiasts. The weather forecast looks much better than this weekend - mostly SUNNY, NO precipitation, and temps in the UPPER-60s. Please come out and enjoy!
  5. Only TWO WEEKS until the Spring Detail Clinic at HQ... ALL years, makes, and models are welcome! Get your rides ready for the upcoming car season. Clinics usually last a couple of hours, but everyone is welcome to come when they can and free to leave when they must. Unless you decide to buy something, attendance is FREE - just show up, socialize, and learn! PLEASE RSVP NLT 30 MAR SO ADAM'S CAN STAFF APPROPRIATELY. Thanks!
  6. Just over a month until the Spring Detail Clinic at Adam's HQ... ALL years, makes, and models are welcome! Get your rides ready for the upcoming car season. Clinics usually last a couple of hours, but everyone is welcome to come when they can and free to leave when they must.
  7. The Colorado Shelby Club partnered with Adam and his team to organize a Spring Detail Clinic at HQ (8225 North Valley Hwy, Denver, CO 80221-4810) on Saturday, 6 Apr, following Lafayette Cars & Coffee (around 9:30AM). All years, makes, and models are welcome! Get your rides ready for the upcoming car season! Please RSVP here if you plan to attend, so Adam's can staff appropriately.
  8. Stored in my cool, dark basement since they arrived, I've somehow amassed extra gallons of H2O Guard & Gloss and Detail Spray (one of each). Pics available on request. About the only things I need are Car Shampoo and Tire Armor, but I could probably use a Grit Guard Wash Board and Black Trim Restorer. I'm willing to consider other items, but I'm NOT looking for Polish, Buttery, Americana, Patriot, Paint Sealant, Glass Cleaner, Waterless, Rinseless, Ceramic Boost, VRT, Clay, or Coatings.
  9. Thanks! I've used PS for years, and I'm happy with it. It provides a good shine and excellent durability (several months, depending on driving habits, weather, care, etc). FWIW, I usually apply it twice-a-year - in the spring and fall. For best results, wash, clay, and polish the paint before applying it. You can help it last longer with good wash habits (2-buckets, pH-balanced shampoo, etc) and the use of complementary products like HGG. As I said, this was my first time using CPW. It shines as well (or better) than PS, and provides great beading action - also as good (or better) than PS. For me, the jury is still out on it durability compared to PS. The bottom line is that I think you'll be happy with PS. Make the time to apply it before winter is upon you!
  10. I prepped my Tacoma for winter last weekend. Thanks to my friend, @falcaineer, I got to choose between my normal PS and his recently acquired CPW. I decided to try CPW for a change. It went on and came off as quickly and easily as PS, which was nice. (Thanks, again, to @falcaineer for his help in applying it!) It shines as well (or better) than PS does. (Silver is a difficult color on which to judge!) It provided great beading action in today's precipitation. I look forward to learning how its durability compares, but I suspect having some Ceramic Boost on-hand won't hurt...
  11. Apologies for the thread revival, but has there been any update on the "much more robust soap that may or may not contain an increased amount of SiO2"?
  12. Thanks to EVERYONE who attended this morning's Detail Clinic at Adams Polishes! Thanks to our friend, Adam, for hosting the Clinic, sharing his knowledge, and offering great discounts for attendees! Here are some of the great rides and expert tutelage from the event...
  13. Those of us who worked with Adam to organize the event did so on behalf of the Shelby Breakfast Club and Colorado Car Addicts. We look forward to any shine enthusiasts in the area joining us, along with members of area Cobra, Corvette, and Challenger Clubs, to learn more about how Adam's can help perfect our cars' finish.
  14. Bumping as a reminder about this weekend's Detail Clinic, focused on Paint Correction and Ceramic Coating, at Adam's HQ. We're tracking RSVPs spanning area Shelby, Cobra, Corvette, and Challenger Clubs. Assuming the weather cooperates, should be a good turnout. Join us to learn how Adam's can help you perfect your finish!
