I also agree that it's almost all personal preference. I have seen vehicles that the owners all use different stuff and they all look amazing.

I like using the Adams and it works great for me. I wouldn't hesitate to use another manufactures stuff if it was something that caught my eye and I needed it. I think the most important part before getting into certain manufactures is just getting quality products no matter who they are buy.
Agreed. And I wish more manufacturers would do the made in the US thing like Adam's touts. Collinite Waxes and Optimum Products are a good start though. Collinite is poured and shipping out of Utica NY.

I have been working on perfecting my paint on my car for a while now. Working at it step by step to avoid complacency when it comes to exhaustion. I am Opticoating it, but I am making sure that the paint is near perfect and not overdoing myself with long days. I have been compounding and polishing the paint and then sealing it with Optiseal. When I have all of the panels compounded and polished I will strip the paint, jewel the paint with a finishing polish, clean the paint, and apply the Opticoat. But I am a perfectionist and somehow I don't know if I will ever be happy enough
