Adam's Quick Reference Detail Guide PDF

We know you don't always have a laptop handy to pop in that DVD while you're detailing, so we've done our best to compress the basic outline of how to detail using Adam's products into a printable PDF.

>>>DOWNLOAD YOUR COPY BY CLICKING HERE<<<

A laminated and spiral bound version will be available soon for purchase, but in the meantime enjoy the free digital version. For any ipad or tablet users this thing looks great on your device!

You know the word "Reference" on the title page is misspelled?

Also step 9F
F. Use very light pressure, just enough to keep the pad in
contact and spready the product evenly over the finish, add
more sealant to the pad as needed.

This should be some sort of contest to spot the errors. Maybe FREE Adams products

haha... I agree! I could use a new single soft towel to go with my daily special Brilliant Glazes I just ordered...

Seriously though, this is a great guide, and as a new Adams customer I will refer to it regularly!

Entering the error check contest:

Pg. 2 - Second paragraph, second sentence, "Whether your goal is to remove swirls marks," probably should be "swirl marks" or just "swirls". Might want a comma after "turns heads" too. But I could be wrong.

You had me at laminated and spiral bound. I would so love one of those!

Yes, the scents are definitely yummy. I found this out with my first order arriving this Wednesday (basic wash kit). If I recall right, DS is bubblegum, the shampoo is cherry, but I'm not sure about the buttery wax.

I should be using the stuff for the first time after work today!

Adams products first time use

Spent today detailing my 2010 IOM Camaro with new Adams products I just recieved. I'm hooked my Camaro looks great. Did this while listening to Led Zeppelin.
Life is good!
