Yeah, Adam was commenting on how your truck gets loose at a pretty high MPH. Thanks for the ride that was fun.

Re: Adam's Polishes Fall Detailing Seminar

Went out yesterday not knowing what to expect. Thought maybe we'd watch Adam do some demonstrations on a vehicle and not much else.

Wasn't quite prepared for what went down. Adam had all of us thoroughly detail our vehicles. It was a lot of work, but I was very impressed with how Adam ran everything. He showed all of us both in a group setting and individually on our own vehicles how to use the various products. My truck is pretty much a work truck, and has been showing its age. It hasn't been well taken care of, as far as washing, polishing, waxing, etc. in the last 4 years.

But it is looking pretty awesome since getting a full blown detailing. I've used a lot of different products on a lot of different cars over the years, and had pretty well settled on Meguiars products quite some time ago. But no one from Meguiars has ever taken time to show me proper detailing teqniques on any of my vehicles, and frankly, I don't think their polishes are quite as good as Adam's. My tired old truck's exterior doesn't look so tired and old any more - my daughter walked into the garage yesterday afternoon and said "daddy, your truck looks brand new!". I honestly never thought I could get it looking so good after all the years of cosmetic abuse.

As for Adam himself, he is a guy that loves to make vehicles look great, was extremely enthusiastic, and wanted every vehicle to leave looking great. He spent the entire day working on everyone's vehicles showing proper detailing tecniques and sharing his own elbow grease. I would have expected him to stand around "managing", rather than sweating alongside all of us.

Seeing what years of neglect can do to a vehicle's finish has shown me just how important taking care of the finish is if you plan on keeping a vehicle for a long time. And Adam's products are high enough quality to help fight those years of neglect and help keep your vehicle looking good. My wife's care is going to get the full treatment before winter, and when our new "toy" arrives within the next couple of years, it will definitely start it's life being treated with Adam's products.

Here's a pic of my '01 work truck with 102,000 miles - not too shabby for a truck that sits outside most of it's life and doesn't get a thorough washing but a couple of times a year. It's going to get more care from here on out, as that's a lot cheaper than a new paint job. I didn't think it had that look left in it - no show truck by any means, but it looks better than it has in a long, long time.
