After lurking around on these boards for a while and seeing the condition of some of the cars on here, Ive decided that it's time to attack my car! I've been to Halfords at the weekend and finally got rid of the christmas gift vouchers in exchange for some Meguiars stuff. I got the Quick Clay kit, Deep Crystal System Polish, Deep Crystal System Carnauba Wax, a couple of Microfibre cloths and some of the Meguiars Applicator pads. I was just planning on using this lot along with some Autoglym shampoo. Is there anything else that I need or that anyone would recommend me using?

I suggest mEgs Hot Rims wheel cleaner, or P21S wheel gel, both are kind to your wheels [^]

Megs endurance tyre gel rules too, lasts ages, messy to put on though so get some rubber gloves, or get black nails

thanks for info turbo went out yestaday to purchase the megs products but having tried several shops was unable to find so came back and had a look on net found all products for about ?26 is this a reasonable price and would you go for the gold class wax in paste or liquid

once i have polished and waxed the car how long would you leave it before rewaxing (usually every couple of months)

thanks again

I attacked the car yesterday with all of the products that I bought. The results were pretty good, but not as good as I had expected. The paintwork is now nice and smooth, but there doesn't seem to be any real depth in the shine. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get better results?

I,ll try some of that! Do you know if Serious are mail order only, or if they have a shop as well, I was thinking of going round tomorrow after work to pick some bits anc bobs up.

Just quoting the website! [:)]

Tis slightly missleading I agree with you... Hide would be better! [;)]

Hand [Glaze] / coating / covering [;)]

I got some poorboys SSr2, will see how I get on with that, I used some in testing and it was pretty good. I fear "A MOP" will be the only way to get it all out.
