    Hi Gus I've just bought a Peugeot partner and gave it a good clean but need to bring the whiteness back now as it has a lot of dirty stained marks in the white paintwork, I've always used super resin polish but run out if that and wondered if there's anything else I should look at that gives better results for bringing shine and removing ingrained marks out?

    I've used Auto Finesse Triple and found it very good, even by hand. Clay it first though, then use a good sealant after you polish it and it will give a great shine.

    Angelwax do a specific wax that is optically designed for white cars called Drift. I use it on my Ibis White S3 all the time. Great stuff and I stock it too.

    Ive got a load if Magiuars clay bars, would they be good but I thought clay bars where for just taking the dirt off the body rather than polish it up?

    You've answered your own question there mate. Clay Bar is used to decontaminate the paintwork before polishing. Makes a huge difference.

    I'd start with a soft clay first rather than medium/hard though, most van paint I've touched is as soft as cheese
