More stuff on the way, reviews to follow.

Just made another order with Chemical Guys for:

Meticulous Matte (try it on stripes)
6 cans of Black on Black spray
12pk of the Silk banded yellow towels (have 24 already, they're nice and cheap)
The Goat-boar's hair lug brush (CHEAP)
20" Wheel well brush
4 Sasquatch Maximus towels (We'll compare these to Adam's single soft and Griots Blue)

Autogeek:
Rupes Bigfoot 21
2pk Meguiar's MF cutting pads 6"
32oz 105
32oz 205
6pk of LC CCS 6.5" (4 gold 2 white) for finishing
Rupes Bigfoot bag

Still have an order from Adams and Detailed Image on the way:

Gallon of DWC
6 pk of VRT foam blocks
Wheel woolies
36oz VRT
Adam's Blaster Sidekick dryer
more Brilliant Glaze

PLUS
50ml 22ple pro
5 applicators

Needless to say Justin and I will be doing lots of reviews here shortly lol. The pads and polish will be used on his Flex too. I'm selling my PC and Adam's pads/polish to my neighbor as I've outgrown it. Still love most other stuff Adam's makes, they just need more cut in the polish.

Stay tuned
 
Some pics for stuff that has come in so far.

The Rupes, you can see the massive throw it has for a DA.

The Bigfoot Bag, really nice, holds a lot.

The detail supplies. Stuff on the bottom left next to the ONR was bought, used once and relegated to the Never use again section.

The Sasquatch's are a perfect blend of the thickness from Adam's Single and double soft plus the softness of the Griot's Blue towels.

Some comparison pics.

That Griot's Show Wax is about the only product of theirs I don't like. Damn stuff is impossible get off. Hate it.
I am not a fan of most anything griots makes other then their drying towels and their microfiber towels. If you are a wax guy get the americana from adams its great
 
CG's MMD is an excellent product. M105/205 I have used it once, put it on the shelf and went to the old stand by Menzerna SIP followed by Nano.

thats why. it works best with the flex or rupes. the rupes is soooooooo nice. so so much faster. 21 mm throw on that beast!!!!
 
Plus 105/205 is SMAT, menz stuff is all DAT. I hate having to flash polish. I wanna polish just as much as I need to.

Many use it with a DA with outstanding results. I just don't like it. Maybe you will :)

You can get great results with a ton of different stuff, including Adam's. Whatever works for you and what you like is what you should use. If you have your technique down and like a certain setup then awesome, what matters is the results.

I wanted to go SMAT and needed more time saving than my PC was offering which is why I went with the Rupes.
 
More stuff on the way.

Optimum Opti-Glass Coating - Will be trying this on 4 cars including Justin's Boss

Optimum Instant Detailer & Gloss Enhancer - Supposed to be a good detail spray but it's in a concentrate like ONR. Will be tested against Adam's, Meg's Final Inspect, Z8.

Brinkman Maxfire Swirl finder light - Xenon bulb, have a hard time finding all swirls with just my LED light(Fenix TK35)

6 more CCS pads - Pink/Orange/White
 
Boxes from Autogeek came in today.

Put Opti-glass on all the glass but haven't gotten the car wet to try it out. Will update tomorrow.

Optimum Instant Detailer was put up against Adam's new formula. OID is very good in slickness and shine and it wipes streak free very easily. I still have to give the nod to Adam's as the slickness is just unbeatable right now. However it's a slight difference that only crazy people like me and Justin notice. A gallon of OID is ~$45 and it makes 4 gallons of detail spray. Adams is almost $50 a gallon so that is definitely a factor.

Also got 3 more gallons of ONR to bring the total to 5 gallons lol. My garage is starting to look like a detail store.
