    I use Meguiars 105 and 205, even used Collinite 476 myself - hard to beat at a good price...
    I know what u mean! From previous ive got loads of products that are just stood there probably only used once and probably never to be use again. The intention now though is to finish a product before purchasing another...thats the plan anyway!

    Good to hear yr achieving results with the same products ive choosen. Gives that bit of reassurance especially as my car is silver like yrs! What brand of pads are you using? And with ths 105 do u use a cutting pad or the medium pad? And the 205?...medium pad? How does chucking in a pass with AG SRP after the 205 sound?

    And oh yes colli all the way. Need long lasting protection for the winter

    Think i prefer my luck with a rotary rather than wet sanding. Tbh been reading up on both DA and rotarys and from what i can tell unless yr a complete bafoon u should be ok with a rotary as a novice. What it seems to me is the safety factor of the da is what gets people using them but what is not said is that rotarys are safe too with a bit of common sense...he said! Lol!

    As for the products there are loads out there and it was doing my head in so just decided on megs for the correction and ag srp for maintenace of the finish and colli for sealing. Job done else ill be milling over what products to use and peoples opinion for ages!
