    needs to breath mate for how long you leave it before you wax it ask who pained it he should no the right amount of time but up to 60 days or so iv just read ;-) as for what to put on there is so much out there and there are so many ppl on here that no more about it than me tbh but i am using jetseal 109 right now seems good but dont protect the car for as long as it says but before i used autoglym for years and think its good stuff. here is a facebook page for chemical guys they no there stuff https://www.facebook.com/pages/Chemi...59949434070452

    You should get yourselves over to detailing world. ​A world for detailers...
    You'll find all the info you need and more. Any questions you can think of has been asked a thousand times over on there. My detailing has come on leaps and bounds since I signed up over there too. You'll find a lot of companies and suppliers on there as well.

    Hello mate, I'm pretty new to the detailing world myself but I would certainly recommend 'Blackfire Wet Diamond, all finish paint protection' combined with 'Blackfire midnight sun paste wax'. Rather on the expensive side but IMO it produces great results. I spent 8 hours+ on my car on Saturday and am very happy with the finish this stuff has produced. Also now after the rain we've had it still looks as good as it did the day I did it! As previously said thou it's a lot down to personal preference/process of elimination as there are so many products out there and everyone will tell you something different, but for me I'm defo staying with the Blackfire.

    Good reference site is polishedbliss.co.uk very comprehensive and will tell you what's good for individual colours.

    Been looking at blackfire does look really good from what they say but as you say it's not cheap. Gona go for the poorboys kit it think that looks good an not to expensive.
    Going to have a look a that site tonite I've so much to learn. Thinking of going on a course to help me along but bet there not cheap too but be well worth it

    I had a panel resprayed and left it 6 weeks before using a sealant on it. I then used Dodo Juice Supernatural Acrylic Spritz spray sealant on it because it's quick and easy. Spray on, spread around, buff off. Just like a quick detailer.

    im only going buy what i was told when i worked in the body shop but then things have changed alot as it was over 10 years ago but i dont think it would hurt to leave it 6 weeks with out polishing it any way as it should have been done before it come out the shop as you say

    its to let the lacquer harden fully. You'll be surprised how long it stays soft for. I'd use a sealant on it after a few weeks, but nothing that uses pressure to apply.
