    ADS Gone?

    Did Rick at Auto Detailing Solutions close up? The URL doesn`t resolve.

    I hadn`t thought about ADS in a while so I went to look. For those of you that don`t know, Rick was a Meg`s distributor back in the day who would break up the Detailer Line products that are only sold in gallons, into quarts (in the Meguiar`s spray bottles) so you could try them without buying a whole gallon. If Rick is gone, he joins the other lost "basement" suppliers like Patrick at Excel, Scott at...I can`t remember, and something-Steve who used to sell towels. I guess the only one left is Rob at Towel Pros, his site still seems to be working. All good guys, although I never dealt with something-Steve, that was a little before my time.

    ADS has been gone for years. I loved buying the pro products in consumer size quantities. Miss them.

    I guess I haven`t been paying attention. Scott was Specialty Motoring Products, he mostly sold Poorboy`s, as I recall. I guess I left out Danase.

    YoSteve.

    Good guy, and he gets the credit for introducing Foamguns and Foaming to the Detailing scene. And FWIW, I`m *still* using those green MFs I got from him.

    I have been a client of Towel Pros for decades... Rob has everything I ever need, and is located in Santa Barbara, so not very far... He has never sent me some junky stuff, etc... A really nice guy.. I did not know he sold it....

    I loved that site.

    Got my first Megs stuff there since you didn`t have to buy whole gallons
