and hang out between the two. I enjoy watching phils work on here and enjoy the knowledge that the junkman and dylan have. Both have been more than helpful to me.
I also use some zaino products but to be honest you cannot beat adam P. for honesty and for backing his products the way he does. Adam, dylan and junkman are all top notch and have a passion about what they do. The forums are a better place for having them.
Thank you sir. That is much appreciated.

I'm sure there are many good detailing products out there. The thing that drew me to Adam's was Junkman's videos. That led me to look closer and I found that it's a totally stand-up company with top-notch customer service. IMHO, that's what sets it apart from Zaino's or Meguair Mirror Glaze. Even if the products were identical (and maybe they are), I'd go with Adam's for that reason.

and that's cool man... it looks like the car has quite a reflective smooth finish from the pic in your avatar... so i'm glad that you found what works for you. Sometimes we only go with one company and that works. I pretty much only use Menzerna polishes... I have used some megs 105 before which cuts really well, but it dries out so fast that I just stick with the Menzerna now.

and for the record, I wasn't putting down Junkman in the least... I told him that his work looked very good from what I saw of it. I haven't watched his videos... but at some point i'm sure I will.

Well, let's get a few things straight...

I am not a pro detailer, a normal detailer, or a detailer in any way. I have NEVER detailed cars for money. I would never detail cars for a living because the pay is crap, the work is hard and I am way too old to work that hard. The only car you will ever see me completely detail is my own. Anything else and it ain't happening.

Secondly, I do not work for Adam's. I work for this guy. The pay is excellent, I get Mondays and Fridays off and I don't do anything before 11:00 AM. Sometimes, my car might get dirty when the weather is nice and I will just take the day off, wash the car and go cruising. That's the way the Junkman rolls.

Last of all, I have 4 brands of products in my garage. Zaino, because it's good. Meguiar's Mirror Glaze line because it's good. 3M's professional products because I work on freshly painted cars from time to time and their products are excellent and recommended for that application (you can't just put anything on fresh paint). Last of all Adam's, because I can address 95% of what a weekend warrior will see, and it doesn't take a PhD to teach him how to use it.

So call me what you want, but a professional detailer I am not.
Junkman likes Adam's products. Everybody likes a product.
What Junkman excels at is making instructional how to videos.

I watched Junkmans how to videos and I ended up using Adam's products to polish my car. I am really happy with the porter cable and Adam pads and polishes.

I didn't use the entire line up of Adam's products but I did use a few thats for sure. I dont think Junkman said you MUST BUY ADAMS OR ELSE. You all can choose freely.

As for CGMMNY. I suspect if he purchases Adams basic kit he cant go wrong. I doubt a beginner wants a more powerful system. I rather stick to the safest solution I can use.

I live in an area very bad for bugs, but with the FK I have on the car, they all just hose off... no need for using a sponge.
