    Would massively recommend reading the detailing section of this forum as many posts are from professional detailers who give advice specific to the colour of your car.

    Having read the threads i now use the following

    Meguiars Nxt generation wash
    Meguiars clay bar
    Meguiars Nxt generation wash
    Dry using waffleweave towel
    Blackfire paint protection
    Blackfire polish
    Nattys blue paste wax

    Had a feeling I wasn't the only one obsessed with making my car stupidly shiny

    Oh and I posted here rather than the detailing section because I thought most would have similarly aged cars and I had a feeling that the info would get pretty intense over there.....I'm after shine but I'm not spending 2 days straight wax-on wax-offing

    Just bought an Autoglym kit for a starter. I hear good things!

    Looking for a 17" set of these! Contact me if yours need a new home

    Muy experience with AutoGlym products isn't good I'm afraid. Hard to put on well and the SRP goes all chalky when trying ti buff off leaving loads of white dust particles going back over the car.

    Poorboys and Chemical Guys products have always worked well for me.

    If you are getting this problem with SRP it normally means you are using too much. About two smartie sized drops on an applicator pad is enough at a time. Once worked in it should leave just a light haze that buffs off easily without loads of dust.

    I used to suffer this problem until joining detailing world and reading the feedback on using it properly. I now realise I must have wasted loads over the years!

    No seriously though, they do an Autoglym kit, so you have everything you need, but Ive always used Bilt Hamber.. and everyone seems to rate it, so give it a bash!
    I also use the Bilt Hamber, can't fault it.

    If your going to clay your car it is really adviced that you polish it afterwards and a machine polish is the best way as claying can and will cause marring of your paint buddy.

    Heres a mates RS i detailed yesterday, the main focus was on correction.

    Car was rinsed and apc applied left to dwell and rinsed.
    Next step was Snow foamed and left to dwell.
    Rinsed.
    Washed with Chemical Guys Gloss Worx 2 bucket method.
    Rinsed.
    Dried using Dodo Juice supernatural drying towel.
    Dodo Juice Tarmalade applied to the tar spots, left and removed.
    The car was rinsed again.
    Clayed with DJ Supernatural Clay and DJ clay Lube.
    Car was rinsed and dried again and ready for the garage.

    Correction materials used.
    3m Fast cut
    3m Ultrafina
    3m yellow mop
    3m blue mop
    Polisher was the mikita and the DJ Buff Daddy DA.

    After the full correction i rinsed the car to remove any power and polish splatter.

    I then applied swissvax cleaner fluid to the entire car ready for the LSP.

    Lsp's used

    Dodo Juice Limited Edition Skull Candy - Awesome stuff
    &
    Chemical Guys Black Light.

    The Key to the finish is not the wax its all in the prepwork for the wax.

    I was a little disappointed after reading the topic, i thought you ment something different. Anyways, i find autosmart mirror image is excellent in my opinion. Especially on black cars!
