I think the closest place that carries Adams is in Illinois. I use their all purpose cleaner and it works great. I ordered it online, and will do that when I make the switch.

Hey Chad how you been.? I know you been using Adams for a while now,seems like all that use it are very satisfied.

i was to until the first camaro fest. i spent some time at the adams booth. they made me be leave. anyone who wants to try there stuff can come on over, i will let you try it and give best demo i can. all i ask is replenish what you use. i order right from there website, i have all most all of there products.

i am doing ok, i still check in here everyday, but due to the drama i stay away most of the time.

I use Adams and I really like it. It might be a little pricey but I think it's worth it. I like how they have videos of their stuff. they have a good video on how to take care of the stripes.

Tim,

We're planning on going tomorrow. I think Steve_RS_Camaro is going too. We're planning on meeting him at the rest area just outside of West Des Moines probably around 6:30 a.m. or 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning.

Hey Roy, I don't have my car back yet otherwise I would be there. I ran there earlier this year. My best that day was 59.5. Awesome course where we can use some of that horsepower ! 9am is early start, usually don't start til 11. I might come out to watch but also thinking of going to Route 66 for the drags. Have fun tommorrow and stay between the cones.

I hope so. I was going for performance and sound. I would like to do more exterior stuff for shows but I'm looking at other things first.

for you'se guys that are looking into the adam's stuff, one of the moderators on the forum works at s.j. smith in davenport. (his name on the G8 boards is 4gasem, not sure on there.) He's got a few grand in adam's products in his garage. If you have a big enough showing at an event, like an ICE event, not just a car show, they'll usually either cut you a deal or send you some free stuff. I know they sent a ton of promotional stuff to the G8 meet down here last year.

Nitro you werent down here for the memorial thing were you? I went on a memorial ride today, same circumstances.

roadrage41- Our ride was here in Cedar Rapids area. It was bikes and cars both for Linda Carlson. She was killed by a texting driver on Highway 30 in May. A very nice lady who lived life to the fullest. She was really cool. We had a great turn out and a good time remembering Linda. Her biker friends are awesome people !
