    Jizer for cleaning all grime off and then a wash and wax.
    Jizer is the most awesome cleaning product out there its proper use is for degreasing engine parts but omg you should see how clean alloys look after using it wow!

    i gave my paintwork some love and care at the weekend, meguires products are great imo, the tech wax is great and very easy to use with the supplied applicator and buffs with ease to a great shine. get some.

    Honestly go for jizer it rocks it is used by a second hand car dealer friend I know to make cars look immaculate yes its for cleaning engines but can be used to clean anything.

    http://www.h-e-d.co.uk/jizer.htm

    All you do is get a squirty bottle and fill it with jizer then just spray it all over the car and alloys then rub a dub and wash off. Leaves the car spotless and not much elbow grease needed whatsoever.
    Once you try Jizer you will never go back.
    I usally wash and wax afterwards.

    Jizer 10/10 dont knock it till you try it!

    N.B. Rally teams use petrol or diesel to wash their cars but Jizer is a whole lot better.

    hmm i wouldnt personally use a product that sounds like a bodily secreation.... nor one that is designed to clean engines.. will be too strong for the paint and will remove any wax that is on the car... as will a clay bar.

    Autoglym shampoo = very mild yet effective shampoo that wont damage the car

    Autoglym super resin polish = probably the best all in one hand polish / sealants / pre wax treatments

    Collinite 476s = most durable winter wax and doesnt look too bad too.

    check out this thread for more details on car care...

    Its not too strong for the paintwork and you want it to take off the wax to put a new coat on thats the whole point in my opinion also removes all tar marks easily. Its more of a pre wash to remove all the grime built up before you shampoo and off course use your favorite waxing product.
    I know people who swear by it and have been using jizer for years.
    Just make sure to rinse off entirely and use a good wax and wash all in one shampoo afterwards.

    Dont diss what you dont know about.:whip:

    Sorry im a car detailer by trade and wouldnt dream of using this on any of my clients cars..

    each to their own though.

    i'll just give my advice and the guy that started this thread can make up his own mind.

    thought the thread was about paintwork care not polish per se. of course you have to re-apply the polish after using claybar, that's the point of it. it removes all the old polish as well as tree sap, brake dust, traffic film etc that builds up over time and washing and normal polishing won't remove.

    The last lot i bought was the 3 stage Meguires deep crystel, and i was very impressed with the outcome. I used to swear by Autoglym products, but the Meguires range is very very good indeed. I am yet to try the claybar though, is it for removing the swirls and light scratches?

    no not atall... infact use the wrong clay bar and you will put in light marring along with the swirls and scratches.

    clay will clean the paint and remove things that shampoo will not.

    After clay i always either machine or hand polish the car. It is the polishing process that removes swirls and scratches
