I was wondering if anyone here has the whole Adam's package for polishing with the Porter Cable. I am really thinking about picking it up.

How in depth do you get with detailing? I see on Adam's forums there are a few people in El Paso that use the products, but their posting activity there is non existent at this time. Im debating doing the work myself vs paying for a detail.

If ya want brotha, I can go and show ya one of these up coming weeks. However be warned that you will be spending about 6-7hrs. to swirl remove, polish and wax, but the final results make you shed a tear on how clean it looks. What products are you thinking of purchasing? I myself and a few other of the members here purchased about $300 worth of products.

Here's what I do:
1.) Adam's Clay Bar w/Detail Spray. You will need the spray to use as a lubricant.
2.) Adam's Swirl remover with porter.
3.) Adam's Wax with porter.
4.) Adam's Polish with porter.
You will also need the detail spray to use as a lubricant for the polishes.
The polishing and removing the swirled should take about 3-4hrs and I am not joking. You will have to be very patient and careful as you can remove the clearcoat with the porter if left on a certain spot for too long. From there you begin to get into the All Purpose Detail Spray, Wheel clear and etc. It just all depends on nice you want your Camaro to look.
What color is your ride?

I would really appreciate that. My only problem is that it would have to be during the week, as I work weekends. I am more than willing to go out to Cruces as well, my brother lives out there. I have been watching videos where people are saying its pretty hard to damage the paint with the Porter Cable. The flex on the other hand is pretty dangerous..haha

I was actually thinking of going with the whole porter cable premier kit. Might as well get almost everything at once.

My car color is the Ashen Gray. It does have one fender scratch, that I am thinking won't come out with polishing.

I would love to take you up on the offer

That wouldn't be a problem as I work out at Fort Bliss, so I can just meet you somewhere and help ya out during the. I tend to try to find things to do to keep me occupied so I wouldn't be any trouble at all.

Well the enduro was a 200 lap race at the dirt track out at the fairgrounds. Basically you can take any car and put a roll cage in it and race.

The drags are also going on tomorrow out at Arroyo Seco which is over by Deming. It is bracket racing, so basically who ever can run the closest to the time they designate without going faster wins.
