    new cleaning products arrived earlier ready for the weekend :)

    well i wasn't happy with some of the stuff i've been using so decided to get some new products along with some bits n bobs i didn't have. i ordered some goodies from cleanyourcar on monday and they arrived a few hours ago.

    gliptone leather cleaner + conditioner
    bilberry wheel cleaner
    poorboys natural look dressing
    poorboys wheel sealant
    poorboys ex-p sealant
    poorboys black hole glaze
    poorboys natty's blue paste wax
    soft leather cleaning brush
    foam applicator pads
    handi hold bottle
    meguiars foaming spray nozzle

    was just fitting my chrome s3 style mirrors so i thought i'd give the bilberry a go as my wheels where filthy!
    used 1:3 mixed with water sprayed on left for a few mins and then used my meg's wheel brush to aggrivate the dirt and then rinsed off with water and my polished rs4's are gleaming!love the bilberry stuff,well impressed!
    as for the other products i'll be giving my car a proper full on detail on saturday so i'll see how i get on and post some pics up

    i have a few products on your list and would highly recomend them,
    im jealous, havent ordered any bits and bobs for months now as im trying to use up the mountain of stuff i already have,trouble is people at the moment only want cheap valeting work done which dont get me wrong......is good but it bores me to tears and the urge to detail trys to take over on every job.

    Nice pick of products there. I am itching to get some some quality products, but (like Dan) I have a mountain of middle of the road stuff to use up first.

    Looking forward to seeing the results of the detail. Hope the weather holds out for you.

    poorboys ex-p
    poorboys nattys blue
    both are awesome products, use sparingly,the more you put on the more you have to remove which is then waisted product.

    make sure your your paint surface is glass smooth before applying the ex-p

    Well I appear to be a sh*t magnet at the moment, so swopsies when you are ready.

    I need to lock up my bank card looking on polished bliss and the likes, especially as they have starter kits on at the mo.
