Porter Cable and Adams

I hadn't heard anything but good things about Adam's polishes and the Porter Cable, so I took the plunge. A good washing followed with the Fine machine polish, glaze, and buttery wax. Whatcha think, I think she came out great. The bad part is the wife is expecting her black Avenger to get the same treatment.

Looks great! I like that red and as far as your wife's car, don't you remember your backs too sore from waxing yours (wink wink)

Looks great.............tell the wifey that one affairs enough for you in a day, that she should just pretend she's occupying the attentions of two men at the same time while spiffing up her ride and that Porter and Adams will fit into the palm of her hand just fine.

Thanks, my basic polishing kit, glaze, and wax was in the $260 range after the Camaro 5 discount. Sounds like a lot but with the amount it took to do the Camaro I figure our 3 cars can be done 5 or 6 times each, at least, and may only need to order wax. I think if you call and talk to Dylan he'll work with to put a package together to meet your needs. All of the folks at Adams seem to go out of the way to make the customers ahppy. Good luck

Correct. I honor all Adam's discounts, but I do have to charge Fl. Sales Tax...I can tell you that shipping is cheaper and orders arrive the day after they ship in most cases. So if you ordered today, you'd have your goodies tomorrow. Another option is to come on by if you are in Orlando and just pick them up. Instant gratification!
