Finally I got a chance to work on the 4Runner, between the weather, my crazy hours at work and my wife working I have been unable to find a decent day to work on the truck. Until yesterday, it was a balmy 45 degrees and sunny.
For starters I used Adams car wash
, excellent stuff...good suds and smells great! I also used his wash pad
, (which worked very well) with the bucket and bucket insert
, which helps trap the dirt at the bottom of your wash bucket.
After washing I used Adams Claybar
, it picked off all the grime, tar and contaminents off the paint, excellent stuff.
THen I used the Swirl and Haze Remover
, Revive Polish
and Fine Machine Polish
. I used them all with my Porter Cable 7424. The Swirl and Haze remover I used with Adams orange pad
, I had a hard time spreading it, so I used it by hand. Worked very good as well, I only had some minor haze on the hood, it took it right off.
The Revive Polish I used with the polish and wax pad
, this stuff worked and spread incredible! Removed all of the fine scratches I had in the clear coat, the paint looked ALOT better after using this.
The Fine machine polish was put on with the same pad, it really helped bring the shine back. Works great in conjuntion with the Revive Polish.
Then I used the black side of the polish and wax pad (if you don't own one and do own a PC, BUY THIS PAD!!) and put on the Fine Machine Wax
, this stuff is awesome!! It goes on black, it leaves a very deep and sharp shine. Wipes off very easily as well. Adams microfiber towels are top notch and work well with it.
The rims on the 4Runner didn't have a good shine at all, at least until I used Metal Polish 1 & 2!
The price seems a little steep, but it is well worth it! This stuff is much better than Mothers, and you use only a little bit.
The tire glaze goes on real easy with the black pads. Looks nice as well.
Adams detail spray is second to none and smells incredible.
The drying towel is excellent.
The Undercarriage spray is good stuff as well.
The Glass cleaner is top notch!
The Leather cleaner and conditioner is a must have if you have leather.
The only item I didn't like was the wash nozzle, :lol:
