    Rubbing Compound?

    DONT DO IT!!!! Buy some Menzerna 203s from PB and a Lakes light cut pad (orange one). Thats probably the best you guna get unless a pro detailer gets busy with a rotary/orbital. That or wet sanding which is not as hard/easy to get wrong as people think. You could always get the bonnet resprayed...

    Favourite glass cleaner?

    AG fast glass is good, but recently finished the bottle so thought i would try the megs nxt gen glass cleaner. Its not very good. You have to work very hard to get all the smears out! Swithed back to IPA and fast glass i will.

    Wheel protection advice

    If there are fine swirl marks then you could fill them up with some SRP, then a few coats with the sealant. dosn't really matter either way. The poorbys will provide good protection with or without the SRP.

    TBH I only use IPA on my windows. It is strong stuff and will more than likely strip the wax if you apply it (if you havnt stripped the wax off first!).

    Recommended products/routine for dark metallic/pearlescent Audi's

    If you can give it a tar treatment too. I always use Tardis before I clay mine (twice a year) then wash again and set about with various waxes/sealants. Didn't used to bother only claying, but was amazed on what a difference tye Tardis made! The claying process is a lot easier (less...

    Well done mate. Just a quick one though, you paid HIM to do a 100% correction? Shouldn't that be the other way around??!!lol!
