Adam's Machine Super Sealant plus Adam's Americana Premium Paste Wax Overkill?
 
I wanted to know if anyone has used the the Adam's Americana Premium Paste Wax after using Adam's Machine Super Sealant together after completing claying and polishing of the car with the PC. I want to place a order but an not sure if I should put my extra money into the adams americana premium paste wax or use the money to buy the VRT tire and trim combo to add protection for my matte stripes. I have IOM if the color of the car changes your opinion on this question. I also live in California with a very hot summer and my car is parked outside during work hours. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or help. This forum has been a great help in looking up all kinds of great Adams products and suggestions. Now I can't decide what product will provide the greatest benefit. :bellyroll:

Defintely get the wax!

I agree^ but if it comes down to getting the sealant + (Americana or VRT combo) I would personally get the sealant, buttery wax and VRT so you can protect your stripes as well as your paint. Now if you can get the mini Americana with the VRT that would be a good route to go if you can't drop 70$ at once on the bigger Americana :)

Find someone with the wax and borrow it. Do half your hood (or better yet, let someone else do half without you there) and take it out in the sun to see if you can see a difference. If you can tell correctly which half was done, buy the wax! ;)

I decided I am going to buy the americana wax along with the Adam's Brilliant Glaze in a kit. Because I am doing this is it necessary to still buy the Machine Super Sealant? Here are the items in my cart let me know your opinions and suggestions. I am going to make my purchase tonight and this is a lot of money so I want to make sure everything I buy makes sense. Thanks

Yes. The sealant protects the paint, the glaze fills in imperfections prior to waxing and makes the paint pop after you wax it.

I landed up buying everything in the list in the post above and also added a 3 pack of the detailers tape. The Camaro5 promo code saved me about $45 and the shipping was $5 because of the cinco de mayo sale. :thumbup:

After watching a few wash videos on you tube from Adams and the Junkman I decided to add two grid guard buckets and two Adams professional car wash pads to my order. Once I fix my order I have to keep the paint correct by using the two bucket wash method.

Looks like they recruited another soul to the AA.

Get the Americana. Something I have noticed with applying SVRT to vinyl (and maybe it's just because I'm doing something wrong) is that even after knocking it down after applying it, the SVRT will run onto your paint as soon as it gets wet. I used to have vinyl hood spears and I applied SVRT on more than one occassion, and the second it rained, or I washed the car, I had I nice film around my spears because of the run off. I would go with the Brilliant Glaze option for keeping your stripes nice, and invest in the Americana. Well worth the money, and definitely not overkill.

I know it's a little late, but if it's a fair weather vehicle, them I'd definitely go with the BG/Americana combo.

Layering that combo over the Machine Sealant will give you the best of both worlds in terms of protection/depth/shine, but it's not absolutely necessary.

MSS is better suited for DD-type vehicles, ones that see all types of weather and/or don't get parked in a garage.

I wanted to take a second and recognize Adams for their great customer service. I placed my original order on Saturday and realized that I wanted to add to my order without having to pay for shipping again on Monday. They allowed me to add to my order which was great. Here is the catch I then realized on Tuesday that one of the products I ordered was cheaper in a kit and asked them if I could change my order. Adams took care of me and I would like to say thank you to them for all their help!!:clap2: It is nice to work with a company that actually cares about the customer.
