    Pretty happy with this considering its 7 years old and nearing 100k motorway miles!

    I'm trying to get into this detailing lark but so far I have only got to the clay bar stage. Got to say I was amazed how much **** my car had picked up over only 4000 miles.

    Anyhow, clay barred at the weekend and I'm pretty happy with the results. Now need to polish and seal I guess?

    RYes3, for white you'd be better going for a sealant rather than wax.

    Get yourself the Werkstat Acrylic Kit, brilliant stuff and really easy to use.

    No mate, a sealent is basically a synthetic wax, where wax contains naturial ingredients. Each has its draw backs and benefits, a sealent would proberly last longer but a wax will give deeper, warmer shine and beed better. You can seal the paint then wax over the top but not the other way round. If you like giveing the car a good clean every couple of months a wax is the way to go in my opinion.

    I use it as a quick detailer, gets bugs off, light dust.

    Or after a general wash, I'll spray the whole car in it, go over it all with a microfibre and hey presto, no streaks!

    Very good for filling it light marks etc. I use it fairly regularly, doesn't break the bank either.

    It doesn't have any cutting capabilities so it's safe to use if you don't know what your doing!

    + easy on, almost easier off I'd say. Mega easy.

    :)

    Had a good day scrubbing up Hans.


    Started with a full snow foam
    [​IMG]


    Then rinsed, strong mix of APC used to help remove any wax, then washed (2BM) and rinsed again
    [​IMG]


    Blacklight was applied, the wheels also got another coat of jetseal on the faces. Reason was we had to grease the tyres up to help get them on without the risk of marking the rim.


    [​IMG]


    After that it was the usual trims/tyres followed by Purple Haze all over. When I first used it i hated it, but looking back it gave a much slicker finish than my Jetseal or Petes53 (due to the added oils i believe?). The headlights, tail lights and mirror covers were coated in Jetseal also.


    Here are a couple of artsy fartsy pictures of the results
