    For tyres i used to use the blackfire dressing, but its reallly messy stuff(oily) The gloss it spray is superb and its watery easy on nice finish. Polished bliss used to do small sample bottles, try it.

    Out of the autogly glass cleaner, i prefer the polish to the fast class. Have you tried the polish phoenix?

    The super resin polish? Yeah have used it and it gave great results. Before I got into detailing my paintwork was very etchy. So I used to put s layer of SRP on the car with sn applicator pad and buff it off. Found this filled up the scratches. Then I would put a layer of wax on top of that. Gave a good result. Though it was all an illusion as the scratches were still underneath! Polished with menzerna 203 since. 80% correction (I did it by hand). Collinite 476 to finish. Good protection, but not very shiny....: • (

    I meant. I prefer the autoglym glass polish to the autoglym fast glass.

    When polishing i use menzerna also. i use Raceglaze 55 to finish amazing stuff, if i am in a hurry its the werkstat carauba kit.

    Hi Stevie
    I have quite a few detailing products. The main places I go to are Elite Car Care, Polished Bliss & Motorgeek.
    I can seriously recommend a QD called Clearkote Quikshine, a superb product to QD your car with after a wash. The shine is unbelievable !!

    It means Quick Detailer. Basically its a product which enhances your paintwork after a wash and also gets rid of unsightly water marks.
    Many companies make them like Finish Kare, Clearkote & Pinnacle for instance.
    Have a look at some of the companies above and see how many there are.
    If you buy Clearkote or FK 425 you wont look back !!

    Megs qd is ok for claying, but for a nice finish after washes
    try One of the ones mentioned above or red mist,werkstat
    zaino can't go wrong with any off them really.

    The werkstat kits are really good and great Value for money.
