    Auto glym

    Wow! i must say i am very impressed. i have not long finished polishing the car and it looks so different. i have always used "Mer" and found it very good for removing tar etc. i am really very shocked in the difference of the car, it had taken all the swerls out the paint and given it so much depth.

    usless thred i know but i thought i would share my new found happness with you all!! lol

    What do you use to polish your car??

    Now to many mods to list! Lots of power, torque and Leather!

    I dont polish the car often as I wax it regularly and find it doesnt need much of a polish but I was using the same bottle of polish I bought 18 years ago and it ran out just a couple weeks ago lol
    The polish seemed to get better and better the older it got lol
    Unfortunately I dont think the company exists any more

    I use Meguires Next Gen wax which I find pretty good and Meguires Trim Detail for the black trim which is awsome stuff!

    if anyone's seen the recent shots of mine (some in the photo thread), this is what we used to get it shiny...

    wash
    leather
    clay
    wash
    leather
    poorboys professional polish
    poorboys polish with carnauba wax
    pinnacle xmt carnauba finishing glaze
    einszett waxpolish soft

    got some blackfire diamond all finish paint protection now (instead of the pinnacle) - will maybe post the results up when i get round to giving it a go.

    mine looked like a dog before me & a mate put the effort in with the above products, but it was definitely worth it. took about 6 hours the two of us.

    Always used Autoglym SRP but only use a couple of times a year as I use Megs Carnauba wax once every few washes.

    I am using an Autoglym product for the blacks and rubbers but find it fades again after a few months and its a mare to get off the windows and paintwork if it gets on there, anyone know of a product for external black plastic and rubbers that lasts a good while?

    Some autoglym products are great and some arent, the bumper trim stuff is kinda pants, it washes off very easily and makes your trim look grey again. Polish is good if your wanting rid of any nasties but dont have a machine, it wont get rid of swirls no matter how much you think it does.
    Ultra Deep shine makes the darker colour cars stand out and the protection stuff is good if you put on atleast three layers. As for cleaning the inside i recommend the shampoo spray/foam, cleans roof linings brilliantly (foam). After using several leather conditioners Id say the AG one is pretty average and offers very little protection for your leather. Meguairs Leather Shampoo/Conditioner is rather good but Im sure there is better also.
    The best AG product I have has to be Fast Glass, cleans very well and leaves no residue at all.

    biggest issue i've always found with AG is the dust, it's a mare as you take it off... and as stated above, you get rubber seals or plastics, and it's a grade a biatch to get the stuff off again.

    i do like the UDS tho, does a good job on darker metallics imo

    I normally mix the srp and extra gloss protection works a treat.

    I also use the megs yellow wax. Is awesome, my mate had a TVR sitting in his workshop for 2 years and I gave it a wash and a quick coat of that the other day and what a difference it made to the paint.
