Would love to try this stuff but I just bought some Maguire's M105/M205 about 3 months ago. It would be interesting to do a side by side comparison of these 2 product lines.

Yes these pads will work on the PC. They have the standard hook and loop attachment on the backs.

I would love to see a head to head against that combo!

Pick some of ours up and pit it against the M twins. If you don't like ours better, the 110% Guarantee is always in effect!

FINALLY is 15% only on the new polish / pads, not the whole order (if you have other stuff). Camaro5 will work on the whole order.

All I had in the cart was one bottle of the new polish - $29.95 - is that the discounted price?

Clear your cart, refresh your browser, add the polish to your cart, add FINALLY to the code area, update cart, then you'll be good to go. If not, email or PM me and I can get you dialed in!

It's working for me. When you put in "FINALLY" and hit "update cart" it should show the discounted price of $25.46 where it says "Sub-Total"

How long do these pads last? Will they do the whole car once and more?

Absolutely!

Dylan has a set he's been testing for a long time that he's used/machine washed 18 times and they are still in one piece. The backing is starting to fail on those, but that's great longevity out of a MF polishing pad.

will these pads work with the Griots 6" buffer? Also I sent an email earlier about any other method of sbipping to Hawaii ? I would like to order all of these but $28 seems a bit high for what my total is.

I think the "skilled operator" is an important distinction . . . I've done a full polish on my car 5 times so I definitely don't consider myself skilled yet.

It's great to see Adam's continuing to improve their products, but the downside is I still have an unused bottle of Machine Super Wax (it's been Machine Super Sealant for how long now, 1.5 years?) collecting dust.

Why haven't you been using that?!? MSS doesn't get enough air-time IMO. LOVE that stuff.

The Pre-Sale has been a huge hit and we thank all of you who have ordered our new pads and polishes. In order to stay ahead of the demand the warehouse began shipping some of the pre-orders today so some of you may already have tracking. The rest of the pre-orders will begin shipping Monday afternoon and everyone should have their tracking by no later than Tuesday.

I've been using Adam's Quick Sealant and Wolf's Body Wrap - they seem to do a better job on my black daily driver Camaro when it comes to getting bugs off the bumper and shedding dirt and seem to provide longer lasting protection as well. All of them provide a great shine.
