    used this for the first time today and it gives a very good shine to my boston green compact
    but the down sides are was really hard work in comparison to the normal a/g super resin polish i use
    and showed all the stone chips up clear as day
    but other than that
    im very pleased with it and will be using it again

    so it gets a thumbs up from me

    AG Deep Shine is a very good polish for darker coloured cars and also red now i think of it, if not removed while still damp it will turn chalkey and be hard to get off. Also either a heavy terry towel of micro fibre should be used when removing it and this should help with getting the dried polish out of the stone chips. Time of day too is a factor when cleaning paint work on a car.

    Also a good liquid wax wil help to clear up the stone chips by removing the white polish as well as protect your hard days polishing for some weeks.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi Dazza,

    Yes the AG Extra Gloss Protection will work well and should help to cover up those stone chips a little. You could also get the smaller tub of AG High Definition Wax this is expensive but produces excellent results and it can be used on window rubbers too which makes them like new.

    Hope this helps

    Hey.

    An alternative which will help cover up imperfections is a gloss/filler that is already dark in colour (PoorBoys - Black Hole - Clean Your Car)

    I've used Black Hole a fair bit and it does a great job of masking minor scratches. It will probably do a better job of hiding stone chips as well. It's a good filler (i.e. it levels out paint so that the light does not "catch" on the indentations, causing unwanted and unfocused reflections)

    Wax is different to polish. A polish removes the top layer of paint to reveal unblemished and fresh (shiny) new paint. Wax is a form of protector/sealant to prevent layers underneath of it getting washed away. You wouldn't want to spend 30mins filling in scratches only to have it washed away by rain etc. Waxes also help to prevent rain water and other dirt sticking to your paint and ruining your shine

    Hey

    Not trying to show off but dark colours can come out pretty shiny
