    i would suggest you stop using the resin polish because all your doing is exposing fresh paint everytime you use it.
    there is also no point in waxing the car then claying it.

    if your arms are hurting lol this is what i do 3-4 times a year-

    zymol bath then dry

    billet clay(only need water for lube)

    hd cleanse

    poorboys or megs scratch remover(finest grade)

    poorboys blackhole to mask any spidering

    finally a couple of coats of zymol wax(i have 4 to choose from but the concours seems best)

    16 hours give or take a couple lol

    That's the first time I've used any polish on the car - I normally just wax it, so thought I'd give it a polish first. Its not something that I intend to do very often because of exposing fresh paint.

    It won't bet getting clayed for a while - I'll do it in a good few weeks, once the cooling system and fuel pump (new addition yesterday ) have been sorted. I think it could probably do with a clay because there seem to be a few imperfections attached to the paint following the winter.

    It could probably do with a light machine polish / paint correction as there are a few minor swirl marks (which have been there since I had the car) - the only time there show up is under street lights.

    I'm intending to use the Bilt clay as well - because it seems to be highly rated and good value for money.

    Without sounding too dense, what's the hd cleanse stuff? Is that a paint cleaner to follow the clay?

    Ill keep using the EGP but I am currently looking around to re fill my valeting box with other polishes etc. Browsing the forum for other peoples recommendations...
    I've only just started using AG stuff - previously I tended to use the Turtle Wac Platinum stuff - the first few times the wax and EGP lasted ages, but then I found it didn't seem to last so well, despite applying it in the same way.

    So far I've been pretty impressed with it - the Meguairs Gold Class wax has impressed the most (probably because it was free....). It seems to last pretty well although when its gone, I'll replace it with some Collnite 456.

    I need to clay mine as well - I'm not sure the previous owners took too much care of it either (especiallty judging by some of the repair bills....).

    the hd cleanse simply takes off any build up of old waxes.the bilt hammer or should i say bilt hamber soft is great with just water so less expense than buying the megs stuff.

    Ahhhh - that's not a bad idea actually as I wax my car fairly regularly and wondered what the bets stuff to remove what was left of the old wax. Looks like another item to add to the detailing list....

    Is it fairly easy to get hold of?
