    yes, reccomended

    easy to apply - i use a machine to apply anyway so wouldnt really know, but yes

    buff off - if you are used to collinite, which is a very soft wax and very easy to apply and buff off, its slightly harder

    you need to make sure it has hazed/cured properly before buffing off

    its alot harder than colli, ive been using a spoon to get it out of the pot lol

    i normally get wax on every pannel before i start buffing off the first pannel, but thats whit a machine soo relativily quick prolly about 10mins,

    Do you know of the wipe technique?

    where you apply you wax, let it haze/cure then when you think its ready take your finger and wipe the wax ... if it smudges leave it, its not ready ... if it wipes away so you can see the paint, its ready to come off

    Dwell time on the panels depends on what product you are using for that stage, for a polish apply to one or two panels at a time and buff, sealants and wax depend on their type, AG extra gloss is best left overnight for a good deep bond but wax can be buffed after 10 mins.

    Just use everything spareingly, what you buff off is waste material.

    I'm thinking of trying a polish by hand at the weekend anyone used the autoglym one? Also any other tips would be appreciated, gonna give it a clay first I think. Can you leave a polish on too long? Do I have to wax it after polishing?

    polishing by hand is hard, and you may not get the results you are expecting even after a day of hard work,

    AG - one? ive never heard of it,

    your car is dark? i personally wouldnt clay it, if you not going to machine polish it, claying will pull all the fillers out of the swirls and make it look worse,

    if you want to remove swirl marks and light scratches by hand theres not alot you can do, but poor boys black hole is very good

    its a glaze that has lots of fillers in, so you are effectivly filling all the swirls and scratches and hiding them, its easy to apply by hand. you apply it like a wax and then buff it off like a wax. then wax over the top

    So wash, then polish the bits that you think need it the most, then apply pb - black hole, then wax
