Ringo64 posted a topic in Pontiac Exterior Maintenance, Modifications and Garage DiscussionWith Adam's Polishes becoming a new vendor of ours, I figured now was a great time to pick up some new items to start detailing my cars with. Then of course let you all know how it went . The products I picked up were the: Car Shampoo Detail Spray Wash/Soap buckets Wash rag Dry rag Clay bar Adam's suggests that you use a "clean water" bucket and a "soapy" bucket for best results when washing your car, then to use the detail spray as you finish washing your car to prevent water spots while drying. Then of course using the detail spray as you clay bar your car as the lube (yes, notallthere, I said lube ) Figured I'd give it a go and see what the results were. If I don't like it, hey can always use a bucket, amirite? As you can see above, this review will involve the Camaro as it needed a good wash and clay barring. Have to say that using the 2 bucket approach is interesting and they came with the "grit bar" at the bottom of the bucket to ensure that all the grit and crap that you pick up while washing your car on your wash rag gets taken off and that worked nicely. Think during the whole "washing" processing the only thing that I found a bit annoying was that the wash rag liked to cling to things as it was a bit "stringy" material and around emblems and other sharp items it kind of grabbed it a bit. Then while drying I had to pull the "string" bits out of the emblems. Just a note to be careful, otherwise the wash rag was great and performed as well as possible. Other than that, washing went as per normal. I did try the detail spray at the end to keep the water spots down and that worked like a charm, as you can hear I say in the video below. Here's a walk-around after the initial wash, detail spray and dry: >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6D6FqW9zSBo After this I ended up clay barring. Didn't get any pictures or videos of this process as clouds were moving in so I wanted to get done as fast as possible. With that said, the clay was very interesting. For the money you spend, you get a good block of clay. I split it in half to use as you don't need nearly that amount for one barring. The clay is very durable but molds easily and following the directions provided by Adam's how to get a nice even surface, by starting out on your windows, worked very well. Overall the clay did wonders and I was very happy and impressed with the overall bar and detail spray. Here's a little overview video at the end: >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvO_rcpHjfU Overall I am very happy with this purchase and the results they provided. Following Adam's directions lead to some fantastic results in the products. My only gripe with the products, as I mentioned in the first video, the detail spray smells a bit like bubble gum and after a while it was getting to me . Other than that, great products and they get the Ringo seal of approval. Overall: 4.5/5 stars (would have been 5/5 but that bubble gum smell really go to me) Don't forget to visit the vendor page for more information about how you can get a discount at Adam's: https://foreverpontiac.com/pages/vendors.html
