First package from Adams

Was so excited to get home since I knew it was at home waiting for me. The package was well packed and arrived safely. When they say Jumbo bottles, they mean it! Ofcourse i had to open them up and smell everything. . So glad the microfiber towells came in sealed packages!! No need to take them out till i need them. Cannot wait to try out the buttery wax! Thanks Adams! The only issue is I did not order more.

Be sure to let us know what you think of their products. I follow their detail videos on youtube and have always been curious to try some of their products. But they are pretty pricey

Welcome to the addiction!!

I have been an Adam's customer for about 4 years. I love the products so much I use them in my shop on every detail and am a local dealer and part-time Adam's Team member. If you have any questions be sure to go to www.adamsfoums.com of call the number on you bottle. Ask anything. The entire team is very knowledgable. You won't find better customer service.

By the way the new series 8 videos were relaesed on Youtube just a couple of hours ago.

I don't solely use Adam's products, but probably 75% of my detailing product is theirs. Highly recommended!

Glad to hear all the positive responses! It will be time for wash/clay/wax this weekend! Will get to try out the products. Also glad to hear Vol. 8 is out. I watched Vol. 7 upon finding these forums.

All I've ever used was either Wolfgang or Adams.. Adams cleaners and micro fiber towels are the best I have, no doubt.. The machine polish and sealant are very good, (I also purchased the manual stuff, altho not used yet) also I don't believe it last as long as Wolfgangs stuff, keeping in mind that I use a machine (porter) for all of the work.. Their (wolfgang) swirl, polish and sealant IMHO are superior and it seems to protect & bead the water longer. I will continue to buy and use both, prices will determine from whom I purchase.. I was also surprised that Adams does not sell any top products (RaggTop or 303 nor headlight restoration)).. I just order about $125 worth of supplies myself from autogeek..
wolfgang headlight restoration kit, 303 top cleaner and sealer and duo swirl & polish cleaners.
Happy detailing..

I LOVE Autogeek. I have a wish list about a million pages long lol! I am very interested in the foam cannons. I have been using a not quite as foamy substitute you can get for 11 bux. Works very well on a waxed car. No bucket, no wash mitt. I will make a video on it this weekend while I'm washing.

MidnightBlues, Adam has personally recomended RaggTopp to me and is what we recommend to other customers. It is a great product! During a clinic this year he mentioned that Adam's did try to develop a convertible top product however, RaggTopp out performed it. Rather than produce an inferior product, he recomended a them instead.

Adam's is great stuff and they back their product. In fact when I bought a product I didn't think performed as well as it should I sent an E-Mail and got a call from Adam Pitale himself the next day.
You might find other products that work just as well or better for some tasks, but for one stop shopping you can trust Adam's to get the job done consistently.

Then Adams should sell the stuff...

Gentlemen, be advised that I to am an Adams customer, therefore I will NOT knock what I myself still use & have... I still have over $300 of stuff from Adams that I have purchased since he became a sponsor..

Ok, so I just got done washing/claying/washing/drying/waxing. I used buttery wax with one of their single microfiber cloths. The wax went on easy with the applicator and worked fantastic. I also used detail spray and waterless wash for the post drive cleanup(on purpose). Everything worked fantastic and smelled good at the same time!

Not bad, it'll take me much longer.... It takes me a day in between beers, for both inside/out.. similar process, wash, clay, wash, dry, polish, sealant.., then windows, inside, vacuum. interior detail, clean seats, use leather stuff on them.. interior doors, and dash.. its a lot of work as your know.. ah yes almost forgot about the tires and dressing... Its a process I try and do twice a year down here...
