[QUOTE=dailydoggy;525257]jesus have sex with it and be done ya spending more effort and dosh on it than trying to get a bunk up..[/QUOTE
only cleaning it regular due to the car being stood up for 6 years until i got my hands on it hence the respray needed and arches,interior etc need to be done and its a project car at the end of the day.would be just as happy to use turtle wax on it but hate dirty cars and all of mine are cleaned every week anyway like i have always done but just like ag products as its easier to work with and gets results
AG clean wheels is ok, but i preffer bilberry wheel cleaner, it goes further its cheaper and is really easy to use
if you're a waxaholic vics concours is the best wax ive used below the £50 mark,
pinnacle signature 2 is also very good, if budget allows raceglaze 55 is a awesome preformer in the looks and durability stakes
My car is almost Black looking in certain light conditions, I use a mixture of waxes depending on how long I have to spend cleaning the car.
I also have to clean & polish the missus X3 and 2 motorbikes.
I have found good results with AutoGlym, zymol, Maguires, Crystal Glow, & BMW own natural care polish.
The most I've spent on any product so far is £16, the BMW polish is good value at £9.99 IMO.
Before discovering the above products I used to use Turtle Wax, but thats now been given to my lad to polish his push bike.
Lots of peeps say my cars & bikes are the cleanest in our close & I have one of the cleanest cars at work, just goes to show that you don't have to spend big bucks to get a nice shine & admiring glances.
Having said that I see the Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegence + free Microfibre is not too expensive at £23.50 inc P&P, on good old Flea-bay. ...........might have to put that on my Xmas list
i used turtlewax high gloss on mine its fuss free goes on easy comes off easy got a best buy in autoexpress as well, no swill marks no white s**t left behind, i havent used clay but its far superior to autoglym super resin, autoglym are good on some things but not others, when i went to santa pod i was advised not to buy a autoglym bag for this reason, cant recomend the highgloos enough though its only a fiver a tub aswell, mines shappire black
It depends what your after and it's a MINEFIELD!! I'm an old guy and was well set in my ways. Wash the car with Zipwax and polish with whatever I had in the shed. It was only after I studied some of the detailing techniques that I discovered the secret to the best finish possible and that is...preparation. Just claying a car will give a smooth glass like finish. Further' to use a DA polisher with a fine finishing polish will take it to the next stage of 'bling' and remove most of the swirls. It's then up to the individual what glaze and or wax/sealant they use but if that preparation is done properly the results will be better than anything you have witnessed before.
full paint correction and sealed with gloss it.
