First thread in C5 history where Adam's didn't fill every post. The Adam's Army must be in a meeting or something

I bet Blackfire wet Diamond is great but "creates a synergy" makes me laugh

Last weekend: dawn wash, clay, wash again, dry. Spot polish with Adams FMP then Adams MSS. I was going to finish on Sunday, but the hangover won.

This weekend: Adams Glaze, American, step back and gawk for a couple minutes, put on battery tender, the cover and say goodnight for the winter. Last step, load 2 big boxes full of my Adams products and my detail kit and take them to a comfy place in the basement for the winter.

Last winter was Blackfire on the paint and Collinte 845 on the wheels. This year Optimum Spay wax on the paint and Collinite 845 on the wheels. Nothing wrong with the BFWD, it worked great, I just have A LOT of other stuff to try out
