Adam's is some amazing stuff check this out

One of my customers owns this vette. It's been in a garage for around 25 years and we did some engine work on it and the body was just in poor shape. The chrome was dull and dirty and the paint was dirty and looked faded and chalky. So he asked me if I could detail it for him so I said sure.

All I did was wash it, dry it, polish the chrome and then with my flex polisher all i did was use adams swirl and haze remover and OMG the car looks beautiful. What a difference it made i didn't polish it or glaze it just used the swirl and haze remover. He's going to be shocked when he picks it up.

I can't wait to use the whole system on my camaro it's going to look great.

I believe its an old lacquer paint job it was painted back in 1983 or 84 and then sat in a garage the rest of its life. Thanks for a great product

Why would that poor car sit for 25 years?! What a piece of ART! Nice work.

The owner who had it sitting for over 25 yrs before this new guy bought it, he's sort of a collector and has a ton of cars.
I've done his 59 caddy, 58 lincoln, and this 58 vette. He's a big guy and couldn't fit in this vette so he never drove it. He's got a 67 corvette which i will be working on next and will be sure to take a before and after shot for Adam's portfolio. The 67 has been sitting just as long if not longer I don't recall ever seeing it out of the garage. It will be fun to watch the shine come back to life.
