Question

Hey Everyone,

 

So I have a confession to make...until now I have been a 1 bucket car washer...I know, its horrible, but I the horror is almost over...

 

I have been reading a lot from these forums and am ready to make my purchase, just wanted to post it here to get some opinions. Also wanted to run to run my Post-car wash process buy everyone here.

 

Note: You won't see the Adams Car Wash Shampoo. but that is because I have already bought it (1 gallon size).

 

Buying the following:

From Adams

1 x Adam's Basic Porter Cable 7424 XP Polisher Kit

1 x Adam's JUMBO Professional Car Wash Pad-Jumbo 11" by 11"

1 x Adam's Professional Car Wash Pad-9" x 9"

2 x Adam's Grit Guard Car Wash Bucket-Bucket, Grit Guard, Lid

1 x Adam's Pad Cleaning & Conditioning Brush

 

From Detailers Domain

1 x Adam's Brilliant Glaze Machine Pad

1 x Adam's Brilliant Glaze

1 x Adam's Machine Super Sealant and Wax Pad

1 x Adam's Machine Superwax (Super Sealant)

1 x Adam's Clay Bar Grey Professional Grade

1 x EZ-Fill Funnel

1 x Sonax Full Effect Wheel Cleaner Size: 5liter

1 x Adam's All Purpose Cleaner Size: 1gallon

2 x Adam's Detail Spray Size: 1gallon

1 x Adam's Great White Microfiber Drying Towel

1 x Adam's Americana Premium Paste Wax

 

After the car is washed:

1) Clay the entire car

2) Adam's Severe Swirl Remover Polishing Pad with Adam's Severe Swirl Remover Polish

3) Adam's Swirl & Haze Remover Polishing Pad with Adam's Swirl & Haze Remover Polish

4) Adam's Fine Machine Polishing Pad with Adam's Fine Machine Polish

5) Adam's Machine Super Sealant & Wax Pad with Adam's Machine Super Sealant

WAIT for 12 hours

6) Adam's Brilliant Glaze Machine Pad with Adam's Brilliant Glaze

7) Adam's Americana Premium Paste Wax

 

 

Do I need to do anything to strip any previous wax before I start the Polishing/Waxing phase? How do I do that?

 

Also am I missing anything in my orders?

 

Thanks everyone :pc:

Looks like you are off to a good start!

Add a couple of ounces of APC to the wash bucket to remove remaining wax. It is always a good idea to get the paint as clean as possible before starting a full detail. Old wax/sealant can clog the clay and pads so removing it will allow the products to work to their full potential.

Is that Bucket #1 (in the 2 bucket method)?

 

Also thanks again mc2hill for the info!

With the 2 bucket method one bucket has the wash solution and the other has clean water. So the APC would be added to the Adam's Car Wash Shampoo in the wash bucket.
