My first detail with Adam's and Porter Cable - LOTS of pics

While its not 100% perfect. I am very happy with the result. I think I was a little hesitant with the PC and could have done a better job with the SHR, but I think it 95% of the way there.

To wash I used the two bucket system and a foam gun. All Adam's products.

To Polish / Wax I used SHR, FMP, MSW, Americana on the paint. APC, VRT, and Uncarriage Spray on the wheels / fender liners. Interior Cleaner and Leather Conditioner on the Seats. Adam's Glass cleaner. And a 50/50 VRT/Water in the engine compartment.

I would like to say thanks to the Junkman for all the videos and to Adam for the videos as well.

The last pic doesnt have problems with the paint, its the clouds in the sky, not bad for a IOM car. The Adams stuff did wonders for my paint.

Comments, questions and/or suggestions welcome.

You did a great job!!

I think I am going to have to join the PC world, as I have injured my shoulder and it gets 'aggrevated' when polishing the car. Where did you get your PC? I'll start looking around and see what I can find. ..and reviewing the video for more tips and care.

The cheapest place that I have found them are the Tool-Plus website. I have never seen them cheaper.

I got my PC through Adam's as I bought one of his detailing kits. I bought the big kit, its pricey but will last a long time and I used all of the products included and love them.

Thanks all for the positive comments.
