correctimondo!I thought we were talking about polish here? 
how often do you use the POLISH, does it have much effect on "minor" scratches etc.
I'm interested in this too. Do people find that hand applicated polish gets rid of scratches? Does it remove swirls too?Which brands, ones, do we prefer for HAND application?
So which polish do we go for?
Poorboys Natty's would certainly be classed as a Wax and AG Extra Gloss Protection as a sealant.POLISH
Polishing is a broad term for a range of processes that either remove
or mask exterior paint defects and dramatically increase surface gloss
in preparation for the addition of wax or sealant protection. Products are designed to either remove or
mask sub-surface defects such swirl marks and scratches
WAX / SEALANT
Once cleaned and polished, painted surfaces require protection against
the elements in order to preserve the quality of the finish. Such
protection comes in the form of either natural carnuba waxes or
synthetic sealants, which offer varying degrees of gloss, reflectivity,
slickness and durability.
This is my dads flat black lexus after a working:Not found a good polish for my non-metallic black yet. However, Autoglym Extra Gloss protection seems to work pretty well as a wax. Really easy to use too.
Ditto with pretty much every autodust product i've tried.I tried AG UDS on my Blck Golf --it gives a nice shine ,did not seem to remove swirls so much and worst of all is awful to apply and leaves the horrible white powder residue everywhere.
Buffing off the bulk of whatever I've applied. I always cut off a new piece from a big roll I got from Halfords. I used to use microfibres but they just clog up too quickly and lose their effectiveness and require more pressure, so now I use MFs for the final buff. If I have an accident while detailing it's also good for making bandages! [Y]
