My First Adams Experience...

I am now addicted! This was the first time I have ever clay barred a car, and I must say it was fun. I washed my car, clay barred it, and then used Adam's Americana product. Great stuff! Car paint looks like glass! Now I need to set aside money for more detailing products.... Sigh...Between new house and my car...funds are tight! But it is all woth it in the end.

There was terrible light outside so sorry for the bad pics, but you still get the picture

Looks great! If you haven't already, waxing your wheels will help with brake dust not stick on

Isn't it amazing the shine and smoothness after just a simple clay bar app? Your car looks great!

Now that you have found what clay can do for your paint the next step is a de-con product such as Iron-X or Wolfs de-con. Detailing and making them shine is very addictive. lol. I live on the west side of Indy (Avon ) and if you want to sample one of these just shoot me a pm.
