 Who mentioned rain!  :shock:   does look awesome...great colour  8) ...  what polish and wax do you use ?

  I use Meguiars gold wash, Meg quick clay/detailer (when it needs it)  P21s,  Mothers Reflections, Autoglym extra gloss.  I got a few Poor boys testers I havent tried yet.  I wont mention the tyres and glass..metal..engine stuff.. but have a few of those too...lol  :lol:  (bet I dont have as many as you tho!  :wink:  )

also... do use a machine to buff on / off with?  I heard the new Meguiars DA one is a good choice.

i only use autoglym as i rate it really good and ive used it for the last 10 years or so, i use autoglym ultra deep shine which gives it a nice gloss finish and is a excellent polish and then a good carbana wax to finish it of and i sometimes use the extra gloss which i find is much better if you leave it for a good 2 hours before wiping it of, i do give it a good machine buff every now and then but i find i dont need to do it now as i did a good job in the first place when i buffed it so i have no swirls or scratches at all........ muck doesent sit on my car anymore it just rolls off :lol: ........looking at your pictures of your car it looks like you are doing a good job in keeping it clean..... if you ever want any autoglym just give me a shount as my garge is full of the stuff as i use it for work everyday

Cheers mate,  can you send me three boxes of each!!  :lol:

Interesting to here your system...   I havent bought a machine...but was tempted...was interested in hearing what you thought.. I might get one this summer to get it spot on. Good tips on leaving the gloss!  I am super impatient  :?

Top work.

A while ago I was tempted to get it professionally mopped...but if these Dual Action machines can be safe to use at home... might be worth getting one... but will hold off for a bit... funds are going ape shit lately.
