Adams Waxs/polishes Whats the hype?

I been on the site a while now and was wondering about the Adams cleaning and detailing product. There is no one in my area selling the stuff and only heard of them on Camaro5. What sets there products apart from any of the others Mothers,Mequiars,ect..? I am always up for putting some good products on my shelf, and see they offer alot of items. Would like some feedback on there products. And what products you would recommend if any.

Sometimes it's okay to believe the hype. This is one of those times.

I took a small sip of the Kool-aid and now I'm addicted to the stuff. I started with just their leather cleaner and leather conditioner, which worked far better than anything else I've found, Then I tried their VRT (vinyl, rubber, tire) and that worked awesome on my tires and the plastic on the rear valance and grill. I just used the stuff to fix a friends flat black stripes on he Charger that were all faded and grey. They have great products and their training videos are awsome too. If you buy their stuff, use Camaro5 as a coupon code to save 10%.

Oh no you didn't drink the Undercarraige Spray did you? It tastes ah smells just like grape koolaid.

Was a Zaino and Megs fan. A buddy let me try some of the detail spray awhile back and was hooked ever after. Love Adam's products and customer service second to none. Results speak for themselves imho.

I started with premium kit and now I'm almost done with interior clean, and I have some extras and gallons. It's a never ending addiction

I was looking at some of their starter kits and it is rediculous amount of money. I think I am going to stick with McGuirers.

Let me put it this way. My wife this morning backed her Traverse into our mailbox. Bent the mailbox door and scratched the SUV on the passenger rear corner about 5 inches long. Nasty scuff but not through the paint. The only products to ever be applied to this vehicle or my SS is Adams.

When she got home from work i waterless washed the area and wiped it down ,whipped out my PC. Threw on the green pad and applied severe swirl and haze remover. set it to 5k and ran that over the scuff , scratches until satisfied. Threw on my orange pad and applied swirl and haze remover and set it to 4 and pressed it down to only orbit, not actually really rotate until satisfied. Then tossed on my white pad and some fine machine metal polish and finished it off. Then simply waxed it.

15 minutes later. I can't even tell there was a mark on the vehicle. PERFECT.. ADAMS FTW.


People are constantly amazed that my cars are daily drivers and look the way they do. Nothing but Adams will ever touch my cars.

start with a few of the items and work your way into to others. I started with some polish and wax... now I have a freakin garage full of their products. And why do I have so much, because they work. When they say "so easy an idiot can do it", they were talking about me. :( But I will tell you that when my car is detailed out, it looks damn good.

Start like the rest of us. A little of this and a little of that as the budget allows. I would start with the tire care kit of APC and VRT. Grit guards in HD buckets with the Adams wash pads & GW drying towels to hold down new dmage to paint (swrils).

Then maybe later move on to the paint correction with pads, PC etc...
