    i plan to keep updating this thread as i use the products from adams...so stay tuned for more!

    Finally got some time to give the fleet a good wash. today i did not have the time to do a full detail on anything but i did give them all a good wash and was able to use a good amount of different products from Adam's.

    Honestly everything i used today was just plain awesome. here is what i used and a brief review

    -Adam's Car Wash Bucket with Sealed, Spin-Off Lid with Adam's Grit Guard Insert. the grit gaurd is really a must have. it seems to be a quality bucket and uhh its a bucket and holds water good lol

    -Adam's Great White Microfiber Drying Towel-this thing is great. really soaks up lots of water nicely and its very large

    -Adam's Professional Car Wash Pad-very, very soft and holds tons of soap and water. i really like this alot

    -Adam's Car Wash Shampoo been using this for a couple years. i really like this soap alot. does a great job. used it today for the first time thru a MTM foam cannon and it performed great.(pics and vid below of this)

    -Adam's All-Purpose Cleaner used this on the wheels, tires, and steps. u can see the dirt coming off as soon as the spray hits it. did a very nice job. its not magic u still need to scrub but still work nicely.

    -Adam's Detail Spray(new formula). my favorite detail spray so far to date. unless i plan to do a seal, glaze, wax i always use this while drying. helps give a little extra shine and depth and a smal amount of protection. this stuff is great. easy to use and one of the few detail sprays that u can actually see making a difference

    -Adam's Super VRT Tire & Trim Dressing. 1st thing that comes to mind with this is a little dab will do. i used this on the block applicators and a little went a long way. this stuff is awesome. it makes everything shiny but also a really deep, dark balck. i will see how long it stays on there but so far this is my favorite product for this material. it is NOT greasy at all, which is frickin great!!

    -Adam's Single Soft Microfiber Towels. very soft and work great

    -Adam's VRT Super Block Dressing Applicators- they are pretty good. i like how thick they are. not to great for our tires. the aggresive lugs tear these up a bit but they work great for all the trim.

    -Adams glass sealer-seems to go on and buff in easy. i will see how it works when it rains. since i just washed all the vehicles, it should rain any minute now....

    -Adams in and out spray-i like this stuff alot. easy to use and gives a nice sheen

    -Adam's Leather & Interior Conditioner- great stuff here. NOT greasy at all and it doesnt make eveything super shiny. its just gives a nice sheen to everything making it look more neatural. i want to see how thins stuff holds up but if it lost a while this will replace all other stuff i have been using for this.

    -Adam's Buttery Wax- WOW easy on, easy off. easiest wax i ever used. i used it my Dad's car which is black and it was a very hot sunny day. i waxed it outside and it went on and off extremely easy. it gave it a real nice deep shine. its no Americana wax but for i needed to compete with the heat and had to do it fast so it was the better option

    -Adams Brilliant Glaze-i love this stuff. gives a nice deep wet look. works nice on the matte black vinyl too.easy to use and looks BRILLIANT!

    -Adams Quick Sealant. this stuff is amazing. very easy to use and works greats. seals nicely, water just beads and flies off the truck. also works very good on the matte black vinyl

    -Adams Buttery wax- dont think i ever used such an easy wax to apply and take off. easy on and easy off. finished results are great. nice shine. i did a quick wax off all 3 vehicles last weekend. i took my DD to work and one of the guys at work said"did u wax your car?" i say yeah why do u ask? " he says it looks really good, i never seen it shine like that". that car is a black 94 wtih some hurting paint. i cant wait to take the flex to it with swirl remover and some revive then seal, glaze, and some americana!

    SRVT "Milk"- i mixed up some "Milk like [email protected] suggested 70/30 SVRT/Water. used it on the tires. it looks awesome nice deep shine and not greasy.its lasted over a week with some heavy rain and still looks good. THANKS [email protected]

    -Adams Liquid Paint Sealant- goes on and off easy. seems to last a while so far

    -Adams- Glass sealant- i love this one. it last for months. its a little tricky to apply correctly but when its done it works great!

    -Adams Waterless Wash-this is a great one. its nice for in between washes. its a step further than the detail spray as far as cleaning but doesnt leave a shine like the detail spray. but like i said it can handle cleaning a dirtier surface without harming the paint, within reason of course. it has helped keep my vehicles clean with all the pollen we get during spring time.

    -Adams Total Interior Detailer- i really like this stuff. it seems to clean well and leave a nice finish that isnt greasy at all. it kinda just gives it a deeper finish. it doesnt leave it looking wet just deeper and darker. very nice look and dry to the touch!

    sorry for the crap vid but this was a challange-Adams car wash shampoo in a MTM Foam Cannon!

    i got to say Adams's sealers, waxes, and glaze really do last. i havent waxed/sealed my truck since spring. i used

    http://adamspolishes.com/shop/exterior/waxing-and-glazing/adam-s-liquid-paint-sealant.html

    last spring. so i went to wash my truck yesterday and the water beaded like crazy still. so i stripped the old wax/sealer and laid down some new sealer with the flex and i just love the results. i didnt have time to glaze or wax over it but just the Adam's liquid sealant left a great shine and gave the truck tons of reflection. i really get more and more impressed the more i use it.

    thanks Fred. i was gonna do it today and had a friend lined up to come over and help me lay out the hood but he had to work so i figured i would hold off and wait for a 2nd set of hands. plus that gave me time to do the other cars

    Thanks for the review Nick, truck looks GOOD!

    A little tip for you guys...mixing up a batch of SVRT "Milk" works wonders on tires with aggressive side lugs. Mix a bottle 70/30 SVRT/Distilled Water and use a spray top. Works great at getting in all the nook and crannies of your tires...without destroying the block sponges.

    ;)
