  1. Hi guys! Finally made a account on here! Hope to be pretty active!
  2. Blue oval lovin' Canadian living in Texas. I bought a Black Lincoln and the rest, as they say, is history.
  3. Hello, I recently just got some new parts painted for my car that I don't plan on putting on the car for another 2-3 months (good o'l winter), and I was just wondering how long after getting the parts painted should i wait to apply a layer of LPS? Thank you
  4. Has anyone seen these, have they sold out or are they lost Little’s?
  5. I was on the site a couple weeks ago and they had a picture for a pin with the Adam’s logo on it. Is this something old or something new coming soon? If so PLEASE RELEASE IT I WANT ONE SO BAD geez thanks for moving it to the garage sale where I can’t reply lol. But good looks on the picture hopefully they release this soon
  6. Hello Adam's Addicts, I have the previous formula of the LPS and love it. I am getting low on my bottle. I ordered the NEW formula a few weeks ago. I have now Strip Washed, Clayed, and IPA wipe down on 3 separate vehicles in 3 different humidity/heat levels (ALL INSIDE A GARAGE). I never had any issues with the old formula wiping off. I could wait an hour or 24 hours and was super easy to wipe off. I'm having very difficult removal issues with this new formula. I've tried different wait times (1 hr. 3 hrs. and 24 hrs.) and not having an easier time removing. Does anybody else seem to be having the same issue with this NEW formula?
  7. Welcome from Dallas. I figure after all the storms, maybe some of Adams products can protect my cars. Can wait to learn from the best on how to clean and protect my cars. Cheers, DTexan
  8. Hello All, I recently purchased a brand new car that dark in color (graphite metallic) and want to preserve the paint and make it look as great as it can possibly be. I'm in Texas and the sun can be pretty brutal - my 06 Accord which I recently sold, started to have clear coat failure about 7 years ago and would like to do whatever I can to prevent that on these car. Glancing over the products is a little overwhelming - not quite sure what I need exactly and the order of the process. My main concern is the exterior and thats the products I'm looking to get feedback on if I could. I noticed some repeating advice in other threads but also some contradictions - for my particular application is this a good start Adams Shampoo Clay Bar Buttery Wax Anything else I'm missing perhaps? Thanks
  9. Hey Detail Friends, I am new to the auto detailing world and looking to get a good start. I drive a 2011 Ford Explorer (not the most exciting ride) and want to make the best of it. It has got major swirls and scratches from being a daily driver and I don't think the first owner took much care of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm starting from zero and looking to learn everything that I can. Thanks KMO
  10. First time here, just really loved what I read when I searched on Google earlier. Happy to be here! Nice to meet you all Ellie
  11. Just ordered a new Tuxedo Black F150. Should come straight from the factory. Told the dealer not to run it through their car wash because I don't want swirls. What will I need to do to the new paint and what are the best products to use to protect it and keep it shining? Paint sealant? Americana? H2O Guard? I will drive it every day and store it outside.
  12. Good Afternoon Adam's Family & Enthusiasts... I completed a quick (1.5hr) 2 bucket wash, clay and seal using the new Car Wash Wedge and H2O Guard & Gloss. Below is a quick review of both products, as they fit into this particular car washing routine. First off, I want to document the state of my vehicle prior to washing and sealing and my initial thoughts on the 2 products. There is a decent amount of build up of dirt, bird droppings (x4+), brake dust, etc. When I received the box with all my products, I was stoked (as usual). I opened the box and found my car wash wedges and H2O Guard & Gloss. At first glance, I was kinda turned off by the foam fingers themselves (within the wash wedge pad) and thought that they would be terrible (compared to the car wash mitts/pads). It took a few calls to Ben (Adam's AWESOME CS and Sales Agent) and having my fears and questions answered (while the soap was building in the bucket, literally) for me to press forward with the wash wedge. The H2O Guard & Gloss was a little bit trickier to understand. By this I mean, I was wondering (and asked Ben) how do you pay attention to one panel at a time (using this product) while the rest of the car is in the sun and water is drying (hard water) on the rest of the panels, you just washed and clayed? After a few minutes of discussion with it, I found most of the answers I needed to move forward. Always keep the car wet (without getting the parts you just dried wet) and move somewhat quickly (as you are not putting all that much product on the car to begin with). The products I used for this project are below. (including a small kwazar full of Detail Spray) Starting off I worked on the wheels. I knocked down the brake dust and grime with DWC and the newer red bristle wheel brush. BTW, the Red wheel brush is AMAZING. It has ACTUALLY saved me money in the amount of DWC I have to use on each wheel, just to get the brake dust off. I went from using almost an entire 16oz bottle of DWC PER WASH to now using 4-6 oz. THAT IS AWESOME. Ok, getting back to the real review. After cleaning the wheels themselves and hitting the tires with some APC (and blue tire brush) and Tire Shine (after the wash was complete), I moved on to the actual washing of the vehicle. Since I had been using Rinseless Wash regularly with this vehicle, I figured that I needed to strip off whatever wax was on the paint to begin with, that way the rest of the review could take place correctly. To do this, I used my foam gun and the 2 Bucket Wash method. I added about 3-4 oz of full strength APC to the foam gun (just to be sure) and another 5-7 oz into the wash bucket (being thorough). I then began my routine 2 bucket wash (with the wedge standing in for my wash pads). I used Adam's "Old" Car Shampoo, in the small travel bottle. I have to say, after knocking out a few panels, I LOVE this wedge. I can do multiple panels (lightly dirty) with one trip to the buckets. Once I got to the belt-line, I did have to go back much more frequently. However, going back to the buckets was much easier and I didn't have to waste as much time rubbing a (two-sided) mitt or pad against each grit-guard, just the wedge itself. The bug guts and dirt came off effortlessly and the wedge was ready to go again, without any issues. After completing my wash, I did notice one small point that stood out for the wedge. That is, the small foam "fingers" were small enough for the wedge to fit in between and clean each of the fins within my BMW kidney grills, up front. That made me so happy. I could clean 4 or 5 ribs in a single swipe (a little pressure to fit the fingers in between). It was awesome. As a point to note, I did see that after completing the wash, the car wash wedge fingers were a little tangled up and it was a little tricky to get them separated again. (If anyone has a suggestion on this point, I would love to hear it) So, on to claying. I was initially going to also include the new blue clay bar as a part of this review, but I still have a few standard clay bar boxes laying around so I decided to use up my old stock first and review it later. I decided, for the purpose of this review, to keep the claying technique constant and focused towards the Adam's Purists. I used nothing but Detail Spray as a lubricant, that way there would be no issues with the claying process or this part of the review (even though I prefer waterless/rinseless wash for my claying lubricant). I clayed the entire car, from top to bottom (except wheels... wish I had time to take them off and seal them... need to get on that... after a year of promises to myself ). After the clay, I rinsed the entire car off and prepped for the H2O Guard & Gloss sealant treatment. I started on the hot side of the car (as I wanted to get that water off QUICKLY). I used my go-to towels for this job, my boarder-less blues and a Great White. I started out spraying 4 or 5 sprays on each panel and found that most of it was soaking into the (prepped) damp boarder-less blue and wasn't being as effective as less. (a tip shared by Ben prior to starting) So less is more and even less than I thought was "less". After the first few panels, I started using 2 or 3 sprays on each panel (depending on size). It worked like a charm. I love this new product. It saves me from drying the car and then putting quick sealant or pain sealant (with my Flex) on top, as an additional, time consuming step. I have yet to see how long the sealant will last, but I will be using my Rinseless Wash here soon, in order to build up a layer of wax on top, to further strengthen and postpone degradation of the sealant from the Guard & Gloss. Overall, I couldn't be happier with this product. I will state, though, that if you are doing this outside, do it in the morning or early evening as you will avoid water spots (with harder water regions). I regret that in my haste, I didn't remove all of the water quick enough on the roof and have a few spots sealed underneath the Guard & Gloss and will need to be removed with another clay session and paint correction (already planned and needed, regardless). So, on to the results... Here is my car with the 2 bucket wash, clay, and sealant applied. I do say it does shine up nicely. This doesn't have any additional detail spray, wax or glaze on it. I wish I had time to perform a Full Face-Melter. Next time, I guess. In conclusion, these two products, the New Car Wash Wedge and H2O Guard & Gloss are worth their weight in the toolbox of the Adam's Car Cleaning Garage (or other space ). I highly recommend each of them and praise their engineering and creative teams for the R&D put into them. If you have any questions regarding either of these, Adam's Reps will be more than happy to help (as will I, via these threads). Thanks for reading and enjoy the polishing!
  13. Writing my thoughts on a few different products: Long handle wheel brush: worked very well, created suds/ bubbles when used with green wheel cleaner, got rid of the dirt inside lug-nut areas also. Paint Sealant: Easy to apply, easy to remove after hazing properly. As a result, the paint looked event better than with what I normally used. New blue clay bar: After using the first generation clay bar compared to the blue one, I am convinced that the blue clay bar is more efficient than the older material. The older material had stuck to my hand and was way more time consuming (three times more time used than the blue clay bar) although the results were practically the same. Rinse and wash label buckets: easy to remember which was used for soap and rinsing. good idea! Adams is still my number one car product in my book, the results are the proof as to why!!
  14. watch all the way to the end.... you'll be happy you did.
  15. Hello all. My name is Zach, and I'm from a small town about 40 miles south of St Louis Missouri. I am the proud owner of a 2014 Ford Mustang, purchased just over a month ago. My Mustang is grey, with black vinyl stripes. I did extensive research on washing my car, since I have to take special care of my stripes. I found Adam's products highly recommended. Currently, I use a 2 bucket wash method, using Adam's car shampoo and professional wash mitt. After washing and rinsing, I finish off the car with Adam's detail spray and a good dry down with 2 Great Whites. Even though I live out in the "country" where we have 'hard' well water, Adam's products provide an exceptional wash, water-spot free.
  16. Hello Everyone, I found these photos in my backup collection from a few weeks ago that I never got around to posting. RedAztec (Pete) and I were detailing our vehicles (his mustang and my jeep) on a Saturday afternoon. After we had finished up, a buddy from down the street came up and inquired as to whether either of us knew of anyone who could do a decent to good polish job on his restored engine bay before his new motor and accessories were bolted in. We looked at each other and smiled. We informed him that we were those of which he had been seeking. We took our tubs of products and cyclo and flex over to his garage and started working on his engine bay. I have to say that the usefulness of the cyclo in the tight corners and contours of this specific engine bay was great. The flex tackled the firewall in the latter pictures. The neighbor was SO impressed that he actually wanted us to let him know when we were putting in another order so he could get some himself to try and work with. Needless to say, his paint job (real spray guns and technique) in his garage was actually not too shabby. Even his clear coat layering was done well. Once the polishes were introduced and correction was done (a little orange peel and uneven layers), the final fully face-meltered surface was gorgeous. WELL DONE ADAM'S POLISHES! Here are the beginning shots with Pete checking the polish with his pocket Fenix flashlight. Here is the contrast between the firewall (not completed and interior walls (completed) Here is the firewall half done (once before second wetsanding). Here is the finished fully face-meltered firewall. Even Pete and I were impressed with how great it turned out.
  17. It's been a little over due (okay a lot) And I bring greetings from St. Charles, Missouri! I'm currently 19 and have been detailing since I was about... 3 or so (according to my parents). It started with my moms' 1994 Chevy Corsica (which has been better days, replacing a damaged piston) and I would wash her car with an old terry cloth and use the two bucket system, and they thought I was nuts for using two buckets back then! Pfft! showed them! And then using a plush sock using applying the trusty turtle wax wax. Which, in all retrospect, I'm surprised the car doesn't have many swirls because of the old terry cloth i used to wash it ha ha. And then I used to wash my bikes the same way. Now fast forward to when I was about.. 12, My mom acquired another car from my grandpa, BEAUTIFUL car, 1995 Buick Roadmaster with 23,000 original miles. It now has 78,000 miles thanks to me. Which is still low, but since it has a cast iron engine it needs to be driven or it will rust from the inside out. It hasn't had anything major except for a heater core and a water pump, general maintenance, synthetic oil, K&N oil and air filter. She gets treated well. Anyway, after being on Camaro5 since the 5th was peaked, I learned of Adams, I knew their products were good but I just wasn't a believer. Well a few months ago I finally dropped ship and spent a few hundred dollars on some simple products. APC, car shampoo, carpet cleaner (which works amazing for the inside too) I am now here... almost a thousand dollars later and buying everything I can. The only thing I don;t have, is a cyclo polisher yet... But I'll get one... soon. Well, since then detailing has been my thing, much like Adam his self. I'll detail my friends cars for the heck of it because I just love doing it. Cars are an emotion, a passion, something for me, larger then life. You get to know a car when you wash them, you feel the work put into them. Something I like to do day after day. It never gets old. I'll spend 12 hours on a detail just to make it right and perfect. I guess you could say Adam himself is a bit of a role model to me... I hope one day to be a dealer of Adams products and be a professional detailer. Sorry for the life story and all, but even thinking about it brings a smile to my face. I can go on for hours but I'm afraid everyone will get bored ha ha.
  18. So I just got a 2013 Camaro for my 21st birthday, no I am not spoiled, my parents but the down payment down and I am making the monthly payments. Just wanted to say hi to you all!
