What are must haves from Adams??

I'm new to the whole washing and detailing scene, so what are some must have items from Adams for a black Camaro?? The car is brand new so I don't think i need to go all out... yet

So far today I've picked the waterlass wash set and the swirl and haze remover with a hand polisher. What else there are too many items to choose from!

Que the junkmans corner!

There's a lot of must haves when it comes to keeping a black car clean and swirl free. I'll let the experts help you with this though. For starters, 2 buckets to wash the car is essential. 2 grit guards will be also.

Shampoo, detail spray, clay bar, APC, super vrt, brilliant glaze and Americana... That should be enough to get you started

Simple -

Waterless Wash:
High lubricity cleaner, designed to be the safest option for removing light dust from the paint while minimizing the chance of swirls. It leaves nothing behind.

Detail Spray:
Can be used for dusting, although less effective at emulsifying and encapsulating dust particles so more likely to have swirls if using this. It has an added gloss enhancer to it so it does deposit something on the surface to make it shine.

Also WW is cheaper p/oz so its best to use that as your day to day dusting spray and conserve DS for when you need extra shine or other tasks its better suited for (pad primer, clay lube, drying agent, etc.)
