    Quick question- after my car has been polished do I wax then gloss protect (I've got Autoglyms gloss protection) or gloss protect then wax?
    Waxes in my shed are Collinite 915, turtle wax extreme, turtle wax original.
    Are there any combinations that are better for summer/winter use? Obviously the car is going to be washed and looked after more in summer.
    Thanks for any advice, this detailing thing can start to become obsessive!

    AG extra gloss is a sealant, and not a particularly good one at that.. problem with it is that it can't decide what exactly it wants to be...

    Just use collinite 915 wax on polished paint.. it'll look great and be thoroughly protected

    with a black car is there any benefit in using a glaze, sealant then waxing? Really want to protect the car after it's been polished

    Poorboys Black hole glaze has been recommended to me by sam1832 and other members, I can't tell you yet how it performs
    but hope to get to grips with it over the Easter Weekend

    So do I glaze then wax? Or is the glaze used inbetween polishing to cover any swirls that may be picked up?

    As I understand it the wax is the last thing you put on.

    I use the colli wax and it's really good.
