Americana Paste Wax Before and After Pics

Question

I finally had a chance to try out the new Americana Paste Wax on my DD this weekend. Below are some pics that show the added shine that it delivers.

 

These pics were taken as I was getting started with the wax. At this point I was only working on the hood. Here's what I did up to this point:

 

Clayed the entire hood.

Hit it with some SHR/orange pad

A light treatment of FMP

 

In the first pic I had used the APW on just the driver's side of the hood. Note how the shine looks particularly "watery" along the ridge on the right side of the hood, especially as opposed to the left side.

This second pic shows the hood with both sides done (one coat on the passenger side, two coats on the driver's side. The changing cloud cover has a little effect on the photos, but neither had any color correction done -- both images were shot from the same spot with the camera on the fully automatic setting.

Overall I'd say the results are really impressive. It's hard to really see it from just a few photos, but when the whole car is done and you see the light dance across the curves as you move, you really appreciate the quality. :cheers:

Looks really good Rich. That's what I like to see is the paint looks like water. Deep and wet. :thumbsup:

I got my vette out tonite for the first time since I used the Americana wax and she said "the Vette has never looked better".

I'm sold on this stuff.

Looks great!

 

Americana is a HIT! Works on boats, cars, trucks, and bikes...

 

Can't beat the stuff. I put a third coat on all the upward facing panels of my G8 last night before it got to dark and had to quit.

I placed my order last Thursday on my lunch hour hoping that it would be one of the first 300 shipped out Friday...

 

I'm still waiting for the shipping confirmation today (Mon.) but haven't gotten it yet, and my order status says "not shipped yet".

 

If it doesn't ship today, I won't get mine this week...:willy::willy:

Hello All,

 

New to Adams and the Forums. I just picked up a 2006 Daytona Sunset Orange Metallic Z06 with only 2K miles a few months ago and really wanted a kick butt product to show off my car so I just ordered the Americana wax but was wondering if I have the Buttery Wax on now would I have to do any additional prepping or stripping of the wax before I use the Americana Wax?

 

Thanks!!

Steve

First, Welcome Steve. Sounds lie a beautiful Vette you have. :cheers:

 

I had the buttery way on the Audi prior to the Americana Paste Wax. I would imagine that if the buttery wax surface on your car is still good and smooth you can just put the Americana on right over it. But my Audi is parked outside and is a DD, so it really needed clay and a little "spring cleaning" before putting on the Americana.
