Registration to our little slice of heaven is free!  Before we get to the fine print and other legal stuff, let's get one thing straight, this forum is supposed to be fun! Maintain a light heart, sense of humor, and a desire to learn from both Adam's Team Members and other users and we'll all get along fine. Remember also that any Adam's Moderator or Team Member completely reserves the right to remove any post, thread, or member that does not contribute in a positive manner. We're sure you'll very rapidly notice the difference between AdamsForums.com and many other forums on the web... the environment is respectful, helpful, and friendly. Feel free to contribute to the discussions, ask questions, and mingle with your fellow enthusiasts without the drama so common on other parts of the internet. 



By becoming a member of AdamsForums.com and participating on the message board, you are agreeing to abide by our rules. As with any rules, they are made for the purpose and benefit of our members as well as to protect the best interest of the message board. Please read them and understand them. If you should have any questions about them, feel free to ask for clarification. 


This forum is not ruled with an iron fist and all rules are always up for discussion, but there is an appropriate time and place to raise such concerns. If you feel a rule is unfair, outdated, or being unjustly enforced please contact a member of the moderating team. Public discussions or disagreements over rules are not permitted. 



We invite and encourage a healthy exchange of opinions; disagreements are okay. If you disagree with a member's post or opinion, by all means, challenge the opinion. However, any challenge must be given with a sense of respect and caring for the other person. The real objective of community is to understand each other, not to attack others and convince them that you're right. Name-calling, insults, "flaming" and attacks are not appropriate and will not be tolerated. Agree to disagree respectfully.


Additionally please understand that a good number of the moderation team volunteer their time to make this a better site for everyone, use discretion when disagreeing with them and always understand that their word is final. Should you disagree with a decision, outcome, or action of a moderator or administrator DO NOT START A THREAD TO DISCUSS IT. All manner of disagreements can be settled in a professional manner via PM and or e-mail. Inflammatory threads in regards to staff or site decisions will not be tolerated.



Falsely representing yourself will not be tolerated. Choose a username and stick with it, multiple user accounts per person is not allowed, in the event you are found to have created multiple user accounts for the purpose of deception or illicit activities you will be permanently and irreversibly banned. No exceptions. 



The main focus of AdamsForums.com is to be a place where car care enthusiasts can come to discuss their passion thus explicit, obscene or vulgar language, graphics, X-rated GIFs, JPEGs or other graphic files are NOT appropriate. This includes picture and graphic files in signatures or avatars as well as language featured in videos. Posts in all forums that contain any of these will not be tolerated and will be moved or deleted without notice! Repeated or intentional posting of these types of material will be subject to immediate ban at the discretion of the moderating team. If you are ever in doubt as to whether the post you are about to make could violate this rule its probably best you don't post it or contact a moderator privately to ask first.

Additionally, posts about religion, politics, and/or controversial issues are strongly discouraged. Topics of an inflammatory nature can lead to bigger problems and we ask that you keep your political and religious views out of the forum. The forum is comprised of people from varied social, economic, religious, and political backgrounds lets celebrate these differences by leaving them out of discussions and ensuring no one is offended.

The forum staff also encourages members to help enforce the rules and keep this the best place on the web to discuss your passion for detailing. If a clear violation of any of our forum policies is posted, including spam, please utilize the "REPORT" link located at the bottom of each individual post. 



Adams Forums encourages all members to express themselves and feature a colorful, interesting, cool, or funny (non offensive) picture in their signature line. Please limit all images to a maximum height of 200 pixels and a maximum width of 600 pixels. This ensures a clean uniform look to all threads and prevents unnecessary scrolling past large images or long page load times. In addition to an image we encourage all members to limit any text in their signature to one line of standard font.

The use of links in signature lines is limited to Authorized Adams Dealers and employees only. The use of this forum to advertise, market, or distribute other products or services is strictly prohibited.

Violations of these rules will be removed without notice by the moderation team. Repeat violations of these rules will result in the suspension of your posting privileges for a time to be determined by the moderation team.



The forum is a place to discuss techniques, get assistance with technical issues, and share a love of detailing. If you experience a problem with a shipment, product, or any other customer service related issue the fastest and most effective way to seek help is through any one of the following channels:

Threads started to complain about a customer service related issue will be removed and you will be redirected to one of the contact sources above. Trust us, the forum is not the fastest way to seek a resolution to your issue and does little more than cause problems. The moderation team is comprised of volunteers who are not employees of Adam's Premium Car Care, thus they will have a limited capacity to rectify your problem or complaint without directing you first to the contact channels above. 

Save yourself the wait and the wasted effort of typing up your concerns here, and simply contact Adam's directly for any and all product and service related issues that do not directly pertain to the forums. 



Linking competitors products or outside vendors on AdamsForums.com is strictly prohibited. The team at Adam's understands that we are clearly not the only detail products on the market, but we do however reserve the right to limit the discussion of such products in order to protect our best interests. 


Light discussion and comparison of outside products is perfectly acceptable so long as it remains respectful, but direct links, marketing, excessive discussion, and endorsement of any product not endorsed or sold by Adam's Premium Car Care is prohibited. There are a number of detailing discussion boards and enthusiast forums on the web where these products can be discussed at length. Here at AdamsForums.com please try to keep the discussion related to the use and support of Adam's products. 



Absolutely no commercial marketing or sales. Our 'garage sale forum' is ONLY for single items/previously-owned, or unopened stuff that fellow forum members might want. Please do not treat this forum like a pawn shop to clear out your old junk.

The Garage Sale section is a privilege for our members. We ask that you first establish yourself in the general forum areas with an introduction and a few posts before posting an item for sale -- reserving the Garage Sale section for active members protects us all from spammers and "fly-by-night" types. In order to protect our members from unscrupulous individuals we ask that you have a minimum of 50 posts before starting a sale thread. The moderation team will remove any thread started by a person with fewer than 50 posts unless prior approval is granted.

Adam's Polishes is in no way responsible for the honesty, integrity, or legality of any item sold in the forum. While we will try to mediate a peaceful resolution in the event of obvious fraud we are in no way a legal authority or mediator in the matter. It goes without saying that Adam's Polishes reserves the right to remove any item we deem illicit or illegal with no prior warning to the thread originator.

  • What's appropriate for listing in the Garage Sale Forum? Any item in working condition, that might have some value to someone else. Please don't list your worn out pair of sneakers you use to mow the lawn in, but feel free to put a thread up for that digital camera you don't use anymore.
  • What isn't allowed? Anything commercial, your Beanie Baby collection, stuff you regularly sell on the side, etc. – stuff like that belongs on craigslist. Mods have the right to remove anything they don't feel is appropriate. Not sure about something? PM a mod first and get an OK.

PLEASE DO NOT ADVERTISE ADAM'S CHEMICALS FOR SALE HERE. As we cannot guarantee the quality or track the purchase of a specific bottle to a specific person. The sale/resale of any "Used" Adam's Polishes chemicals is strictly prohibited unless prior approval is granted by a member of the moderating team. 


Used tools, accessories, and similar items can be listed for sale so long as they are in fair, working condition. Any and all warranty coverage is non-transferrable.

Buyer and seller beware! Adam's Polishes and the Adam's Forums team accept no responsibility for transactions conducted here, although repeated issues or complaints associated with a particular member may result in that member having their private sale privileges revoked.

A few minor language changes and additions were made to the rules. I encourage everyone, new members and old, to review the rules to make sure we all have a clear understanding of what is and isn't acceptable here on the forums. Thank you all for being a part of AdamsForums.com and we value your participation here!
