    I have just Bought this Beauty Unfortunatly the previous owners liked the Carwash so its covered in Moderate swirls and strange light markings and isn't very clean under what ever protection is on the paint i also found a tub of Black colour restore Te-cut in the boot.

    Im intending to get this car looking like new so what product do i need to buy

    (Car cleaning Newb was using washing up liquid till last year)

    I currently have

    A Pair of buckets
    Meguiars Lambs wool wash mit
    Meguiars Tech wax
    Meguiars Quick Detailer and Clay bar
    Jet wash and hose

    Want the paint to really shine and look like is wet glass

    Add some Meguiars Show Glaze, Meguiars Gold Class car wash, some Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine Polish and some Collinite 476s Wax to your list.....

    Wash with the Gold Class First,
    then use the clay bar,
    then polish,
    then apply the Glaze,
    and finally seal in with the Collinite Wax.

    Should be looking decent after that.

    Wet glass on this thread...

    Polished Bliss Vs Golf Mk2 G60 + Zymol

    try Zymol HD-Cleanse, then Zymol Carbon Wax. This wax is designed for darker colours, and gives a wet, glassy look with plenty of flake pop.
