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.

A pass with some fine machine along with some brilliant and americana and that thing would glow. Those lacquer paint jobs are to shiny!
