Adam's Polishes Detail Clinic at C5 Fest 10-11AM Friday!

Dylan, Mook, and myself will be hosting a detail clinic Friday morning in our booth from 10-11am.

Since it's only an hour long, we are looking for your input as to what topic(s) to cover.

What would you guys like to see? How to clay bar? Machine polishing? How to dress trim/tires? The most effective way to clean glass? How to care for vinyl stripes?

You will decide, so post up here and let us know what you want to see!

I wouldn't mind learning more about claying myself. But I'll be at the clinic regardless of what you cover.

Send a message via AIM to Mr. Wyndham
I highly recommend stopping by to see this demonstration! If I can spare the time, I will....but likely I'll be pulled thirty different ways.

Thanks for hosting this Nick, and the entire Adam's team!

Will you be there Thursday? Stop by and see us and one of us will be glad to take a look at your car and see if it's a good candidate or not.

Can you bring worn out pads or ones that show when they need replacing. This is just the start of a lot of questions brought up today when I spent 4 hours on the wife's Sebring.

Just curious, but do y'all not indorse the Porter Cable anymore? The new one on your site is the Cyclone thing? Maybe bring that to show how to work it!!!

Since the box is stamped with "Made in China, they decided to not carry it anymore...kudos to them for doing that.

To just clarify they still support/service the porter cable but just don't sell it anymore.

Correct, we no longer sell the PC as the heads of them are now stamped "Made in China," which is no good.

We offer the Cyclo (not Cyclone ) now, in addition to the Flex. It's a great machine that's made right up the road from the warehouse in Colorado and is a GREAT machine. We will certainly have one there at the show for everyone to check out!
