Exclamation What Adams Package to buy?

My car is new and has been repainted with stripes and clear just to make the factory paint better. It looks amazing no orange peel or any of the regular factory problems. Perfect mirror finish and I want to keep it that way. What kit should I buy that will save and preserve my paint. I am up to date on car care and have watched all the Adams videos. I want to use their products they seem to be the new rave in auto care and actually back up the claim. What should I get?

Not too worried about budget just concerned for my needs. Why spend 1200 when you only need 500 or whatever. It's about what I need to maintain and not have a bunch of stuff I'm not using

with adams you will use EVERYTHING and not just for your car, its effective in your home too

if you're not concerned about a budget, i'd get this kit, as you might need a PC as well, and comes with everything you will need

http://www.adamspolishes.com/p-85-ad...etail-kit.aspx

if you don't wanna spend the money, these are good kits to get everything done, and you can also pick up a tub of Americana Paste

oh yeah, and i'd also pick up a Gallon of detail spray...you're going use a whole lot of that

If you're paint is perfect and you know how to not introduce scratches/swirls in your paint you could just get some wax/brilliant glaze and detail spray with a few microfiber towels.

That's about next to impossible so having something like junkmans paint correction kit is a good buy. If you don't like anything they have a 110% refund so have at it.

Made my purchase. Went withbthe essential detail kit to try it out. Already have a foam gun and various washing mitts and microfibers. no need for the porter cable yet this will allow me to try the wash clay and wax. There are no swirls at all due to the car hadn't even been washed it's been in storage. The only trip it has taken is to Etmc for the upgrade and that's it since paint. The painter buffed polished sealed and waxed so it's good. I'm going to wash clay and wax and post results
