What to buy for starting from scratch

Well I am out of car wash after the last wash and there is a few other things I need to get cleaned up too. So wondering what products I should be looking at. Currently thinking of the sampler kit and a gallon of car wash. However I would also like something for the leather seats and steering wheel could use some help too. Also does Adam's have anything similar to Mothers mag and aluminum polish? Looking for something to take care of my new rims as well as polish up the grill and toolbox (diamond plate.)

I don't know too much about clay bar products but I am thinking from what I have read my truck could use some as well as a good wax but I dunno if I am that ambitious at the moment.

Anything in particular recommended to get other than the starter kit and car wash? I would love to buy all of his stuff and clean the truck up nice but I don't think my budget will allow lol. Just looking to give it a good cleaning and touch a few of the more neglected spots.

Adam has some nice metal polishes that I have used and like.

thanks Tom, guess I will have to hunt harder on his site since I didn't see any. I still got a bunch of mothers polish but would be nice to try out Adam's too and see how it compares.

I haven't tried the Adam's stuff yet but have heard nothing but good about all of his products. He has some nice kits as well.

Re: What to buy for starting from scratch

i too have heard nothing but good things about adams
but instead of waiting for the order, 3m is very good and well as some of the higher end meguairs. all you need is the basic stuff soap wax might want a buffer/polisher ,mits, bug mit is a must claybar, scratch remover, and then there is the interior leather cleaner/ reconditioner carpret cleaner/ spot remover and some tint safe glass cleaner unless you are like some of us (the more picky about their truck club) gotta have that thing shinin better than the others lol
