Adam's Products

I first started using Zaino products in 2006, and although I was always super happy with the results, it was just a time consuming process.

A week ago I got a '13 ZL1, Black. I wasn't really looking forward to the detailing process so I started doing some reading on here. After taking the plunge of purchasing Adam's products, and just today detailing, I am SO happy that I switched. Like I said, always happy with Zaino products, just time consuming.

Adam's products (and AWESOME how-to videos) made the process so smooth (literally) and just enjoyable! I was so impressed with the outcome! I think the quality of everything is top notch and the end result is worth every penny! Now, if I can just get rid of the darn pollen for the season we'll be good go!

Thank you all for your continued knowledge and input on this forum, it is invaluable!

Very partial to them myself, but there are others out there than can get the job done.

That said, most everything in my arsenal has an Adams logo on it

I used to use Surf City, but switched to Adams. I am sure there are other great products out there. Adams is all I use now. Another great product I just picked up is the Metro Vac. Best car vacuum I have ever used, also American made.

On a black car use 2 coats of mss and brilliant glaze and then americana or patriot and it turns out awsome. Just got done with mine after 2 weeks of work. Will post pictures soon. Looks awsome. Still wet paint look.

When people stop me at the gas station and say "wow I have never seen such a shiny black car before..." That makes me keep going back to Adams. Adams is unique in the fact that they appeal to the novice detailer and the hardcore detailing vets. I've said it before, Adams is a one stop shop where you know you're going to get a high quality product every time. The products are super easy to use and all work well together.

A lot of people don't have the time or money to try every different product that may or may not outperform Adams. It's nice to go there and know you'll be happy every time.

Adams doesn't have a cult following for nothing

Ok thanks. The last time I asked there was one about 30 minutes north of me. All good. Still next day service. So any suggestions for the carbon flash metallic paint. I have already done a full correction on it so I'm just looking to maintain and keep that nice clean deep look. Also some suggestions on the trim parts. Vrt?

SVRT would be great for your trim. Now if you're still using Adams and you've done all your correction I would use the super sealant, brilliant glaze then wax of your choosing.

Blackfire Wet Diamond topped with Pete's 53 or Blackfire Midnight Sun wax.

For trim, you want Ultima Tire And Trim Guard Plus.

I want something to bring the trim back to black without it washing off or streaking like other products after application and to getting a little wet.
