Hi Lads, Just machine polished car which is silver, and very pleased. The paint was pretty good with minor scratches really, but it looks good. Question is which wax should I use now? I have Poorboys white diamond which has the fillers to improve any minor scratches still there, but I have some Swisswax as well. I thought of using the Poorboys first to improve any imperfections, but think the Swisswax will give better gloss. I am a new boy so would appreciate some advice from the detailers ?
:)

I use Dodo Juice supernatural hybrid on silver which gives good results , or if you want to keep costs down Finishkare fk1000p looks good too and the tin will last you years .

If you already have Swissvax, use that. The paint should be pretty much perfect after machine polishing so no need for anything with fillers.

I'll throw this one into the 'ball park'.....Angelwax's AG wax.

It's a wax that is designed for silver paint (hence the AG designation) .Here's what Angelwax have to say about it......

Quote:
Angelwax Ag is the worlds’ first, hard metallic silver detailing wax and is made with the same chemical components that are used in the manufacture of silver vehicle paint.Designed and formulated to enrich silver paintwork, Angelwax Ag adds depth and lustre whilst masking swirls, light scratches and minor stone-chips making this highly durable wax a ‘must have’ detailing product for owners of silver vehicles.


You can get a sample size 30ml pot for under £12,
