I have used this polish on many customers vehicles as well as my own. Out of all the polishes that Adams sells, this is my favorite to use. One bottle could last for a a dozen cars, due to it's long run time and thin, spreadable solution. It spreads evenly and 4 pea drops can last for multiple panels if used correctly. It comes off with a mf cloth as easy as any product I've used. It leaves behind a deep shiny finish and works well to correct micro marring effects left behind, after the use of heavy compound, or the one step polish on softer clear coats. It won't take out the deeper scratches, as it's not designed to, but it will take out most light swirl marks, scratches and oxidation.
Disclaimer: I think everyone is entitled to, and should, write about their experiences with a product. Part 1 of my review is responding to Matt C's review. Adam’s color/product match-up works perfect for their [stated] intended use. That said, as an owner of a body & powder coat shop, my guys & I know just how fine these scratches are, and what type of pad to use. It’s easy to interpret deeper scratches (as high as 1000-1500 grit) as minor. If one, 2-3 complete cross-hatch pattern (CHP) doesn’t do the job, do a 2nd (1 CHP) pass; if that doesn’t do it, the scratches weren’t 2000-2500 grit. Scratches approximately 900 grit and up, we use One Step w/One Step Pad; just be mindful of the cutting power this pad has. When working on previously owned vehicles, it’s impossible to know how many applications have taken place. Before we touch cars, we haven’t painted & maintained, we use a Mil Thickness gauge, take several readings on each panel, then compare against factory specs. You can pick up a quality gauge below $100; any reputable body shop will tell you factory Mil specs for your car. If the care has been repainted, it’s a crapshoot. Also, if the car has been exposed to road salt, that will affect clear coat thickness as well. Any time a machine is being used, experience and knowledge are paramount! Part 2: As stated above, used properly w/proper pad, works as Adam’s describes!! I posted a similar response for the compound as well.
Attempted a 2 step polish on my F-150 paint last weekend. I tested this polish on my hood (side by side with the blue Adam's compound) to see if 2 step correction was actually needed. I have minor surface defects (clear coat scratches) and light swirl marks all over my paint, and none of them were removed with this polish. I followed the directions on the bottle, used the corresponding white polishing pad, and the polish failed to do anything to correct my paint. It also creates a fair amount of dust, despite what the label says. There was even dusting from the compound after spraying the pad with Chemical Guys pad lubrication spray. This product was so ineffective at removing defects in the test location that I didn't even bother attempting to use it to remove any defects and went straight to the Adam's compound (see my review there, also a bad review). I'm completely disappointed with this product and will look to another brand next time.
I have like 6 years buying stuff from them . The adam's polish you can achieve a nice shine even if you dont' now what you doing :)
