Thanks for the response!

Re: Adams Detail Spray ...first time OOooooo

So you're saying the detail spray isn't a spray wax? It's purpose is to leave a nice shine, and not any protection, correct?

Re: Adams Detail Spray ...first time OOooooo

It's not technically a spray wax, but it looks and acts like one.

It doens't leave any appreciable amount of lasing protection, always best to have a coat of sealant and/or wax on there as well.

Re: Adams Detail Spray ...first time OOooooo

How much are you guys using as your drying process. I found I went through half the 16oz bottle. That works out as an expensive way to dry my car. Did I over do it?

I tried this for the first time tonight, and it made a huge difference in drying the car down.
It probably also helped that I used a better wash (sorry not Adams Shampoo, I have a bottle that will be used for washes after waxing) and then did the final sold stream rinse as per the Adams video.
It was drying up much quicker, and I didn't feel the need for a two cloth style dry and polish. One pass did the trick. It felt very slick afterwards. Unfortunately as I started drying in the dark, it was hard to see the final finish.

I purchased a Gallon bottle that will make it more economical, and the 16oz was free from a local Adams promotion. I may get their last 5 gallon container.

Clay bar and Adams Premium wax tomorrow.

Holy moly.....yeah you should need nowhere close to half a bottle, especially if you are just using it as a drying aid. A couple sprays on every panel should do the trick.

Re: Adams Detail Spray ...first time OOooooo

I just 2/3 of a bottle of the chem guys detail spray as the lube while claying the car, so yeah, half a bottle to dry seems crazy overkill.

About to wash and dry again before glazing, sealing then waxing, I will be far more sparse with it second time around.

Drying a car in the dark, even with Adams detailing spray, does not give you the best results. It was pretty good, but there was a patch here and there I missed. Buffed of easily this morning.

Re: Adams Detail Spray ...first time OOooooo

Snuke, that's WAYYYY too much for a drying agent. About 2 sprays per body panel is all you need to accelerate the drying process.

Any more than that and you'll be fighting streaking since your towel(s) will become quickly saturated.

Re: Adams Detail Spray ...first time OOooooo

The two different drying towel supplied in the Chem Guys kits, while not complete and under crap, are far from good, getting some decent ones will help.

Second time around after the claying and I used about 15-20% of a bottle.
I did use the Adams video as a reference for application, and she does get pretty liberal in the amount used.
Now that the car has finally had a proper clean and wax, it should be far easier to wash and dry, and I can see no more than two per panel will do the job.

Do the Kwazar bottles make a difference in the ability to apply it more broadly per spray?

They definitely do. It atomizes it better, allowing for a finer application. The kicker with the Kwazars is that since it sprays when you pull the trigger AND release it, you need to move your hand faster so you don't apply too much.

Just a small technique tweak from standard bottles, the Kwazars are AWESOME!

Maybe a little off subject but I have ordered a bunch of stuff from ADAM's. Just received them and I'm impressed with the quality so far without using them. Just wondering why you don't make all the microfiber products white instead of blue? A quote from you.
"After years of trying towels with color, we finally had a "d'uh!" moment and tried a microfiber fabric without color. Wouldn't you know it, the fabric dye in our previous towels was keeping the towel from being, well, perfect! Our new Adam's Great White Drying Towel hits the mark. It's our best drying towel yet, and we think the best you will find anywhere".

Re: Adams Detail Spray ...first time OOooooo

I imagine it is like all things Adam's they like to keep colour codes to make it easy for the user to differentiate the item and what it used for.
Eg, Waterless wash towel is blue to suit waterless wash liquid, same for glass cleaning cloth, both blue.
White cloth for final buffing, grey for application.

Or maybe not. But I like to have different colours for this reason, to know that one colour is for one purpose, while the other for another.
