Adam's polish

For you guys that have been using the Adam's stuff, after waxing the truck does it bead up like other waxes when it's wet? I used the clay bar and then the revive polish, then the swirl and haze and then the butter wax, but it's not beading up on the finish, is it supposed too? Also what are you guys cleaning your stacks with?

I used Adams polish and the water beaded up like normal. I use mothers chrome polish on my stacks. It does a very good job. I would think any chrome polish would work on your stacks.

Some waxes are actually designed to have the water "sheet" off, although I'd rather have it bead up like you are talking about. Try waxing again... :shrug: Did you let it dry long enough? What was the temp when you waxed?

Just because I kiss the prettiest girls and I drive my truck too fast, why does everybody want to kick my @ss?

It was warm when I did it, maybe I will try waxing again and let it dry longer.

How warm? Did you do the "finger" test?
