Adams Quick Sealant Review

This is the first time I used Adams Quick Sealant on my paint and here is my review. After polishing my car the other day I tried the quick sealant for the first time. I prepped the applicator pad and then fogged each section like Dylan did in the video. Now I know Dylan said he broke up the WRX in 4 sections but I had to do alot more. After spraying my hood, which I thought would be one section, I realized I would have to do smaller sections as it seemed like the sealant dried to fast. It is very easy to put on and spread around plus I love the idea of a spray on sealant, however it seemed to dry unevenly and was splocthy in some areas. Also there were some streaks in the paint that were different colors of black. Almost as if the line were I sprayed the sealant was darker than the rest of the area. Well enough of the bad stuff. I let the car sit in the garage over night and went and rubbed it down again then headed out. Well while I was running my errands it started to rain, so I snapped a picture of the beads on my roof. The sealant produced a nice water bead and as soon as I hit about 30mph the water just started flying off the car. So for protection properties it seems like it will do well. I don't think I will be using this again on my black paint, only on my wheels and possibly my white tahoe. Here's a picture of the beads.

Seems to pretty much ring true with all the reviews I have seen to this point. Basically its great for wheels and front bumpers...use the real stuff on your paint though - especially for guys with black rides like you and I.

This stuff worked great on my car and as you can see its black. Did you spread it out evenly with a applicator? I've never had an issue with this. Sounds like to me you didn't apply it correctly.

I might not have done it correctly. It seemed to spread evenly. Oh well, no harm done.

Seemed to work good for me? This is after I did the Quick Sealant, Brilliant Glaze, and a coat of Americana... I clayed before all that too.
