Adams after action report
All I can say is WOW. What a wonderful experience.
We had 14 cars show up and about over 20 Club members. Adam himself ran a clinic that ran from about 8:30 until we left after 2pm. He did a wonderful rendition of “the birth of Adam’s Polishes” that was very entertaining and fascinating. Then he selected a “volunteer” car – a black Sky who’s owner shall remain nameless. The car was selected because it was a) black and b) “the most abused” car there of the 14. In the nameless owners defense the car is a daily driver that lives outdoors 24/7 and had been through the automated car wash maybe one time too many.
Adam took us through the entire process from making a visual assessment of the condition of the car finish, through doing a test section to determine how aggressive the detailer needs to be to achieve the end results, to actually performing clay baring, machine polishing and machine waxing. He also demonstrated application of a layer of paste wax. He imparted a great deal of very useful information and tips along the way. He is clearly an expert in detailing and if anything gave us more information than some of us could assimilate in a single session. He did give us all a copy of his how to DVD for home study.
Adam also went through how to detail wheels, tires and the wheel wells. Very interesting. And the factory chrome wheels came out looking absolutely beautiful. He then went to the interior and showed how to clean all the various elements of the interior and then treated them with the appropriate treatment product. The end result was also truly amazing. Made me a believer
The above took a couple of hours, after which we all went out to the parking lot and he worked on each car. He asked the owner to show him the single most bothersome problem they had with their car and he then demonstrated how to: repair a torn clear bra on the chin of a Sky, addressed some problem areas on leather seats, buffed out several scratches, demonstrated on Jacks red Sky that with just a little of the right products the swirl marks went away.
Then having learned a lot, we were offered a group discount for the day and some even got a very deep cash only discount on top of that! It was fantastic. I bought the machine polish kit and saved enough to buy a bunch of other product. But of course I cannot mention it where the wife might find out .
After the demonstration and buying was over, most of us went to Oscar’s Blues for lunch. We had a blast and attracted a lot of attention just driving into the parking lot as a group .
Thanks to Adam and to everyone who showed up and made it such a great time.
Don’t forget next Saturday is the barbeque and car show at Burt Chevy in Littleton.
And yes, Jack and his wife showed up. He has a red Sky with Westers tune, Kappa springs, Solo exhaust . . . very nice car. His wife is driving
