At Present on my blue Pug is has to be.......

Polish Meguiars Swirlx by DA polisher. Why, well one because I found it quick and easy and no working it until it breaks down like other polishes around
:wink:
Optimum Opti-Seal next and again because it so quick and easy (hang on a picture is starting to build here "lazy sod" :lol: . Joking aside I love the look OS gives, it's like a new layer of clear coat :cool:

Then a quick spray of Optimum car wax which you don't have to add but it does seem to warm up the look a little.

Then to finish off and maintain some Optimum detailer & gloss enhancer. This stuff really does add to the gloss already there :shock:, more than any other QD I've used before.

How this lasts the winter I will have to wait and see but one thing is sure it's very easy to top up with the spray wax :cool:.

So far the muck from the road seems to mostly just roll off :shock:; well more that anything else I've used.

So do you think the Carlack and Collinite combo will look good on here?

How many layers of LLS and Collinite and I'm I right in thinking of applying the Collinite layers 45 minutes apart?


You need to layer the LLS daily or weekly. It needs time. Go over twice with LLS, twice with Collinite 476s. Then another layer a week later. Then don't wash it for 2 weeks.

Ah thanks, at the moment the car has Duragloss 601 and 105 on it, I was unable to add any more layers of 105 so I'm planning to add more layers. When the Duragloss wears off I'll use the Carlack and Collinite combo.

Rich reds.

Sonus SFX3 by machine then CG Pete's '53.
Super reflective gloss with this combo on red, and amazing on soft reds.



I'd have to agree :D

Infact I'd amend that to say Sonus SFX2 (depending on pain condition) then 3, CG Jetseal 109 and then Pete's 53 or 5050

Magic :cool:

I love using AG HD wax - well it cost me enought- as it gives a great long lasting result. Normally I would use the AG SRP followed by their HD wax but I have a black car that has some noticable swirls and light scratches which the SRP doesn't seem to fill.

So looking for a solution I have two questions:

Question one - can i use CG Black Hole as the polish / filler folllowed by AG HD wax on to? Do you think this will be a suitable filler and do they complement each other?

Question two - would i get better results using the carlack68 - NSC followed by their LLS and if so will the AG HD wax sit nicely on top of this or should i stick to the tried and tested Collinite 915.

For maximum points your answer consider it is now September and i am looking to apply in the next few weeks and hope it will see me through winter.

Neither Poorboys World Black Hole nor Car-Lack68 NSC will fill anything like AG SRP. In fact, Car-Lack68 NSC will not fill at all. If AG SRP is not filling to your satisfaction, you need a machine polish.

To winter ... last year, I used HD Cleanser and HD Wax. We then got THE worst winter for 30 years! Yes, I remember 1980 - that WAS cold. Up where I live at 1200 ft we got exposure and we saw snow in late October which did not shift until March! A mile down the road and that was a different story, but up where I live (and wash the cars) it was Baltic!

Anyway, HD Wax lasted throughout ... almost 6 months in extreme weather.

Use it with confidence, but prep well. AG SRP or AG HD Cleaner first. Come spring (or now) sort out the swirling and seal in with HD Wax.

I do it all by hand and the products I am liking at the moment is

Megs Foam aplicators for polish and wax

Dodo juice buffing towel/ various other microfibres

Chemicals

Megs Gold Class shampoo
CG orange degreaser
CG All in one polish
CG WMF
Megs number 16 wax ( Great wax Highly reconmended)

I'm looking to venture into the next products any advice?
CG speed wipe or pro detailer ( which ever adds a nice wet depth to the paint after waxing)
CG Bug Bugger
CG blue rim and wheel cleaner

Can anyone reconmend a good shampoo? i like the Megs gold class but fancy a change maybe CG maxi suds?

Josh

The CG Blue rim wheel cleaner is good but it is acid based. Unless your wheels are extremely bad I would go for Valet Pro - Bilberry Wheel Cleaner instead http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/wheels-an ... d_499.html . It's non-acid based and even if your wheels are bad it can be used neat or 1:1 if need be.

The Chemical Guys - Bodywash and Wax is a nice shampoo better than maxi-suds imo :wink:
