Adam's New Flex System: Detailed Chevy Tahoe

Sooo I got this new toy, some of you may have heard of it - the Flex 3401 VRG. I needed a vehicle to go to town on, I called my mother in law and asked if I could use their Tahoe for a write up.

Products used:

Wash-
Adam's Shampoo
Adam's Foam Gun
Adam's Fender Brush
Adam's Boars Hair Brush
Adam's Lugnut Brush
Adam's Jumbo Wash Pad
Adam's All Purpose Cleaner
Adam's Green Wheel Cleaner
Adam's Detail Spray
Adam's Great White Drying Towel

Polish-
Flex 3401 VRG
Adam's Flat Pad Kit
Adam's Severe Swirl Remover

Adam's Swirl and Haze Remover
Adam's Fine Machine Polish

Trim / Tires-
Adam's In & Out Spray
Adam's Super VRT
Adam's Invisible Undercarriage Spray

Finish-
Adam's Brilliant Glaze
Adam's Americana

Here's a shot of my new Adam's goodies! Sorry the SSR didn't make the shot:



And now - on to our test subject - Midnight Blue '98 Tahoe, here's the before's:






I started in the usual fashion, All purpose cleaner to clean the tires and fender wells; green wheel cleaner to clean the wheels:



Followed with a thorough foam down:



Post wash you it was easy to tell this Tahoe has been washed with dawn for the last 12 years by the complete lack of beading during the rinse:



After the rinse I clayed the truck (and threw away the clay bar post use):



Now lets inspect the damage:






Prep for a video shoot:




I shot a video during this detail with Dylan on Flex Vs. PC.. (video is experiencing technical difficulties, may be lost forever ) The same process was followed with each machine, SSR+Green, SHR+Orange, FMP+White, the flex knocked out the damage in no time, while the PC achieved great results, It would have taken another pass to achieve the same results the flex had already accomplished. Here is a 50/50 of the Flex vs PC, Flex on the left, PC on the right - control in the middle:




Moving on to the very thirsty trim, SVRT and I&O made quick work of it:








After a coat of Brilliant Glaze, it was topped with a coat of Americana:



Dad and Claire helped with the finishing touches:




Can't finish a detail without a Dylan shot - Family Style:



Conclusion:

The new SSR is a superior compound to other compounds on the market, its has a nice long working time, and finishes really well. Next go around I'm going to attempt SSR to FMP and skip the SHR to see how that combo works.

The Flex 3401 VRG will definitely achieve fantastic results in almost 1/2 the time as the PC especially with the addition of this fantastic SSR to the Adam's line. The Flex is more difficult to operate than a PC and requires more muscle to keep the machine steady due to its forced rotation. Pro's and Con's to everything on the market, but I'm taking this 3401 VRG with me to the Grave!

Now you know why I always say that the Flex will wear you out! That's the interesting trade off that you never see talked about. Yep, it corrects much faster than the PC but you fatigue a lot quicker than you do with the PC. So there is a give and take when moving up to the Flex.

Man, that paint was thrashed! Good job on the recovery. It would take me a week to do a truck that size. No thanks!

Ryan,

This looks great. One question for you. The damage to the paint looked pretty bad from the pictures best I can tell, did you get all of it out with the flex system?

I understand that you and AJ are alot more experienced and just wanted to know if you had to do other things like sand some areas or did you just use the flex system. The reason I ask is on the passenger side rear near the tail light and wheel well it looked like a pretty scratched up from the pictures. The results look amazing.

All the scuffs and scrapes were easily removed with the flex, however a couple scratches were down to the basecoat in which case no amount of wet sanding will fix. All the other results are pure flex.

Why?

Also, how much more dangerous is the flex? I've used the PC quite a bit, would I be ready to step up to the flex, or am I still too novice to not harm my paint? I understand flex is still safer than rotary, but compared to the PC what are the technique changes?

The Flex is much smoother (less vibration) but that rotation will try and pull you down a panel sometimes, so you are fighting to keep the machine in place a little more. Basically replacing the downward force you'd be exerting on the PC with lateral control. Tens to make my shoulders ache, especially after a lot of vertical panel work.

Its only 'dangerous' (and not really the best term) unless misused... it cuts faster, but not so much faster that you're going to be down to bare metal or something.

Your paints pretty flawless from what I've seen, the Flex might be overkill since you really don't need the added correcting ability... or do you have areas that aren't coming up for you with the PC??

Bingo. And depending on the make of pad you use, that pull can try and throw you across the hood or over the trunk or across the roof or... you get the point. The only place that I would use the word "dangerous" is on a lip. Like the lip on the hood by the windshield. You ride that puppy one time too many with the Flex and a heavy cutting compound and I guarantee that you'll take the paint right off of it. You have to pay attention to how you hit edges with the Flex.

I would also agree that if your paint isn't all jacked up or if you are not detailing cars for a living, you have absolutely no need for the Flex. Once you fully correct your paint, you should NEVER need to get aggressive with it again if you are washing the car, or removing dust from the car correctly. Look at it from the perspective of being a cop. A cop has a few weapons at his disposal. The gun is his most lethal and is pretty much guaranteed to eliminate a threat, but it is not always the best choice for every situation. You don't shoot a unarmed man for jaywalking and you don't use hand to hand combat on a subject who is shooting at you with a AK-47 on full auto.

So use the tool that fits the situation that you are looking at in your paint. I never use the Flex on my paint unless something crazy happens and leaves a scratch.

Junkman is exactly right in his comments. If you don't do this professionally, don't take the chance and eat your paint. PC is a great system for folks who want the best without the hassle of the chance of burning through the paint. The PC pretty much will take care of that issue. Good posts from all of you as i do enjoy reading everybodies opinion, as this is mine.

I am hearing alot about the flex and some of the downfalls of using it with high cut product and the potential for mistakes to happen.

If you are using the FMP that Adams's sells and polishing your car on the annual detailor occassion fix since the flex is faster at applying and achieving the desired results would it be ok in that instance for say like the big panels, hood, roof, doors etc.. I know you still need the PC for the smaller areas but wouldn't it cut some of the time down?

As well all know I am a NOOB to this stuff but really like doing it and learning all about it. I have even purchased the flex package and have a junkyard hood waiting to practice on just wanting to get a little more knowledge.

Since the correction that you are doing with FMP is so small, there really isn't a lot of advantage with the Flex as opposed to the PC. As a matter of fact, you will use less polish with the PC which saves you money in the long run. Although I say all this, it will take some people using the Flex to relize when there is an advantage and when there is not. Then they will think back to these threads and say, "I see what they were talking about now."

The Flex will star for you if you detail cars for a living or you are dealing with some jacked up paint, period.

Here's what I found with the Flex. I use Lake Country CCS 6.5 inch pads and Adam's products. With the Flex on 4 and a white pad with Adam's fine machine polish, I have found the same result as PC, Swirl and Haze Remover and an orange pad. You do need to use more product as you're generating more heat and the play time is shorter.

But did I need the Flex? No. Is it quicker? Absolutely.

And it's funny you mentioning practicing on an old hood. When I got my RK Sport hood for the Camaro, the stock hood became my wet sand/Flex/Pad combo/rotary practice piece!

Yeah I have been re-reading alot of stuff here lately. I do have some family with older cars that are jacked up that I can work on in my spare time if I chose, plus my truck is really jacked up since I use it as a truck and go to the woods, but I do appreciate the knowledge.

Well I guess it doesn't hurt to learn new things and if your area is like mine they think detailing is washing and vacuuming out the inside, oh I forgot to mention " Armor All" the tires and clean/streak the windows. LOL

With the money I have spent with Adams the Flex is a drop in the bucket, pun intended, seriously I am a tool freak can never have too many.

Funny little side story my sis in law just paid 450.00 to have her BMW detailed. They washed, waxed, vacuumed,cleaned the windows. $450.00. It looks worse than my Camaro and it has been" Detailed" LMAO But you just can't tell some people

I would say that they are in the vast majority today. There are not a lot of people who take pride in their work the way folks did back when we were kids. From detailers to any business, the passion is just pathetic these days.

This project has me considering doing my old truck. Its got 250,000 miles on it and looks like hell. It would be interesting to see what results can be achieved. Now every car I see has those swirls and I think "I could fix that". I never even noticed them a few months ago.

You're right, I didn't use the correct term, but I think you guys got what I meant.

I didn't mean for my car, but I do, during the summer, do other people's cars for some nice supplemental income. I remember a Toyota SUV I had last summer that I couldn't get flawless with the PC, but it looked a lot like that Tahoe, and I now see I could've gotten there with the flex. Perhaps my new green pad and Severe SHR will get me there without need for the Flex. Thanks for the info guys.

Me and my Dad went to the movies tonight, and I was looking at paint and noticed the most disgusting thing ever. A Viper with heavily oxidized paint. I wanted to bust out with some Adam's and teach the owner a lesson.

That's the hardest part of becoming aware. Trying to unplug others before their time!

Wait until you go to a car show. It is real bad at the shows. I can't enjoy the shows like I did before I became aware. Now I just shake my head as I walk around.
