    Hi Guy,

    I have always been amazed about how shiney some of the cars on here look! almost link a mirror!

    My car previously havent had anything more than a quick clean by the previous owner.

    How do i get this up to the standard of what you guys have?

    And what products are best to do this?

    in the past i have used AutoGlym super resin polish and AutoGlym Aqua Wax?

    Thanks
    Steve

    I use Megs too - to be honest I like their product range and although I have a lot of Autoglym as well I find the Megs a bit more user friendly and generally get better results.

    A good thing to do as a novice is go onto either Autoglyms or Meguiars website and request one of their product brochures - they have loads of tips and pointers on what to do and what products to use covering the whole car, bodywork, engine, inside etc

    Suspect it was you who called a few minutes ago in which case, hope I was of some assistance - if it wasn't you, feel free to call and I can advise.

    Used sensibly/correctly, the risk is minimal. If the surfaces are clean, pads clean and you work in a methodical fashion, indoors, you should not have any risk of marring the paint.

    (Using a rotary increases the risk of burning the paint massively and you also riks strike through whilst paint removal will be much higher - with a DA the rate of removal is much less and whilst the work time is longer, you will get correction. It's also going to be far easier to refine the finish).
