Hey guys, ive been around learning as much as I could and I thought it was about time to introduce myself. Knowledge is power and this site is chock full, and as a college student it is everything I could want, fun learning though haha. But ill cut to the chase, I am a college student as I said attending Michigan State University, I currently drive a black 08 Jeep GC SRT8, first car with my name on the title so it is my baby and im a proud poppa haha. But the previous owner had denied this car any sense of cleanliness so I had alotta work on my plate. After researching for a while I decided to take on this myself and really learn in the process, I went with the porter cable setup along with SSR, SHR, FMP, MSW and Americana. I spent about 2 weeks on and off working on her paint only cause it was all so severely damaged and I was also working at my job during the process. Through this forum I have learned much already, talking to others and learning from those with experience, the best way to learn for me was being humble. I attached a few pictures of my jeep before and after so you can really see how badly it was taken care of before I nursed it back to health. Thank you for your time and anyones help of future help! : )

Welcome Josh, yes nice save. I see that you jumped right in with the:pc:. The Jeep is looking good and the Adams polishes and other goodies will keep it that way. My car is new and was not DETAILED by the dealer so I avoided the dealer installed swirls. Did the previous owner use steel wool to wash it? Again nice save.:glasses:

First off Welcome.


Excellent save Josh! :thumbsup::thumbsup: Since it is a Jeep, I hope those scratches were from off-roading and not washing!


And since you are new, and spent a lot of time correcting the paint, I won't mention that the tires and wheel wells need some love.:D

haha thanks for the welcome guys! yes those before pictures are horrid, I just couldn't let this car suffer like that so i had to give it some Adams love lol. haha I knew people would comment on the wheels and tires, when i mean the pictures were taken after I mean RIGHT after haha, pulled it out of the garage and snapped pics and had to head back to school for work. I pushed it up to the last second but this car needed all the love I could give it, now that I am finally getting a good amount of Adams products this car is living like it should be. I think the previous guy did wash it with steel wool, thats what it seemed at least, but i have brought her back to life. Thank you for all the kind compliments and welcoming me in, I hope to do much more correcting and detailing and have already had many friends ask me if I could do their cars. Did my moms and sisters when I was in the mood as well haha. Adams FTW on black paint for sure!
