Just bought a Golf GT TDi today, however the paintwork needs a good tidy up as has surface swirls and scratches and also interior handles etc due to peeling laquer.

But firstly id like to get the outside looking gleaming again and maintained well as I like my cars to be.

I dont have a machine polisher so just wondering best products for this that I can use by hand and application methods etc?

If theres any top end bits I can grab from Halfords 3 for 2 that would be handy but if not can order online!

Cheers in advance!

Just note that it only hides swirl marks.. in order to remove them properly you will need to cut the paint back with some proper machine detailing..

Im going to wash,clay,AG SRP it 3 times on each panel, and coat it in a wax and see how it comes up. Should be a vast improvement and if it is ill be more than happy! Il post up some before and afters at the weekend!
