Hello cleaning people!

 

Last weekend I took it upon my self to do my first machine polish, I've always enjoyed washing and caring for my cars... but I've never had the courage to use a machine. It was fun and different, but still took a lot of time.

 

 

Steps taken;

 

Wash

Clay

Wash

Machine Polish

Machine Sealant

Glaze

Wax

 

I didn't get perfect, and I didn't expect to.

 

I used Adam's SSR, SHR, and FMP. I didn't remove 100% defects, the evil light bulb in the sky will always remind me how much I suck. :loser: Dang black paint!

 

But it helped... a ton!

 

Products used:

 

Adam's Shampoo

******* Clay / ******* Detail Spray

Adam's SSR, SHR, FMP, and MSS

Adam's Brilliant Glaze

************** Paste Wax

Adam's Detail Spray

Bud Light :cheers:

 

SSR was very time consuming with the porter cable, but I'd rather be safe than sorry! MSS went on so simple, and came off almost just as simple. After 24 hours, I was excited to use my first "cheater", Brilliant Glaze. I was very worried it would be a complete b&@^#)$% to get off, but surprisingly it came right off! Of course, some double soft MF towels made all this very easy! :)

That looks darn good, for your first time...however, the towel in the reflection of the door looks suspiciously like it's not a microfiber....if you are using anything but microfiber for anything, get rid of it and use microfiber, it will make a difference. Also, the car looks great, and the next time you detail it, it will come out looking even better, but a nice job and it does look good!

The towel hanging by the handle on the cart? That's a Adams great white :)

 

Thanks guys, had to get some pictures with my cheap point and shoot. Can't wait for my buddy to come do some with his fancy camera, he wants to do some long exposure shots!

My apologies, it must be my old eyes tricked me, because the finish looks to darn good for me to have made that mistake. The car does look great, and again sorry for the mistaken identity!

Looks great! I'm hoping we can convert you to 100% Adams in the future. I think you'll be happy you changed.

 

15% off makes it like getting free shipping... Now's the time to pounce!

Soon, have to use up the last of some stuff I had. I can not wait to try Americana.

 

 

 

 

 

Looks awesome to me! Great job! The one with the trees overhanging is amazing!

 

Thanks, that one is my favorite!

Ahh, don't wait, after my first experience with Adam's, I threw my old stuff, that will remain nameless...but made me Car Crazy:D, away, and I never regretted getting rid of it and have never looked back!

Good write up. Why wash again after clay? I am a bit confused on this as some videos say no need to wash again, and other say WASH?!?

 

What is the opinion on this?

Now granted this conversation took place a few years back, but Adam told me that you don't even have to remove the residue left from using the clay bar, but to leave it on and it will be completely removed when using Revive, which should be the next step. Now this might have changed and maybe someone has more recent insight, but I still leave the clay bar residue on the car and then use Revive over it and it seems to work fine.

I really did not wash to remove clay residue, but mainly a just in case step to prevent anything sitting on the car while I was claying.
