    hey people i usually hand polish my car but I just wanted to know how often should it be done. i.e. every week/2weeks or so fourth?
    would it effect the paint if i polished/waxed it weekly?

    Yes, polish is an abrasive, it's why I only do it one a month. Any more than one a month is overkill in my book, but each to his own...

    You can use a "Showroom" polish.. These do not contain any abrasives etc.. So you can polish as much as you like without fear of removing paint.
    I use it on my car as and when with no adverse affects whatso ever.
    I don't suffer from insanity......... I enjoy it!!!!

    Not sure of names to be fair, as what i use is a trade product by a company called Autosmart..But i am sure somewhere like Halfords etc will supply a similar product.
    Most good automotive outlets will supply these types of wax/polish etc.
