    what colour you putting it on?

    if its dark

    Glaze it with poor boys black hole
    http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/glazes.../prod_494.html

    Thenwax with

    cheaper option:
    collinite 476s
    http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/wax/co.../prod_451.html

    or

    more expensive option:
    Dodo juice super natural http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/wax/do.../prod_507.html

    The dodo juice is the best, i used it at the weekend

    The collinite is very good for the money

    The black hole will cover any swirl marks and light scratches you have, and does a very good job

    Cheers the car is a graphite grey! I was just in halfords and saw it today so just wondered if anyone had used it before! Yeah I've heard dodo juice is really good but struggling to find somewhere in the north east that stock it. And I'm not really into buying online tho!

    They would be ok on grey,

    Black hole is really good and deffo worth the extra effort in applying it, it will cover all your swirl marks up,

    God knows where you would buy any car cleaing stuff from a shop lol I get all mine online,

    I wasn't really into expensive wax, I used to just use the colli but the diffrence in finish between colli and the dodo juice is unbeliveable

    What do you use?

    OP - I've used collinite but if your after a deep deep (let me say it again) deeep gloss the best product i've found is 3M polish rosa, maybe its a placebo effect because I get it for free lol but shines like nothing else and beads for ages

    I don't know how fussy you are but if I had a grey car and clayed it i'd go over it with a machine polish to remove the swirls the clay will show up.

    If your not too fussy, a polish like SRP or the glaze Sam recomended will do fine because they conatain fillers then whack the wax on

    Cheers shamM3 im not that fussy just want to get the wax protection on and heard i had to prep first. So ill buy a clay kit then do that, then polish it then the car should be ready to wax (Which ever wax i buy)! is that correct?
