What products do you have?..what are they for?

Which are your favourites? Why?

Which brand do you prefer, or do you take things product by product?

And why not post a pic of what these products do/have done?

Erm where to start...

Poducts Reasons for use
2 x Zymbol Shampoo & Wax 5 Ltrs My dad brought the first one and have always used it to wash the cars
1 x Wonder Wheels 5 Ltrs Dad brought it and it seems to do a very good job even better wen used in spray bottle
1 x WD40 Always good to have some lubricate [;)]
1 x Halfords non-diluted screen wash Another always good to have product

Loads more stuff just cant think off top me head

From before I joined the forum:
Turtle wax wash and wax, sponge, chamois.

Since joining the forum:
Meguiars quik clay, Clearkote car wash, Clearkote Vanilla Moose Wax Hand Glaze, P21s wax, various applicator pads and loads of microfibre cloths.

The Clearkote handglaze and P21s are superb - really easy to apply with great results.

Am now looking at the best stuff to put on my wheels - I have new alloys arriving shortly and want to give them a good layer of protection before they go on.

no waxs or polishes?

i bet some guys on here have some serious amounts!
Yeah sorry i was tired when i wrote that...

I use Mer Polish, find it good that it allows you to apply it when the bodywork is still wet

Was given a nice tip about polishing too, not sure what others views
are or if they have tried it but i thought it turned out quite well

1. Wash the car as normal

2. Rinse

3. Do not dry, You will be giving the car a second wash but also add a cap of polish to the mix

4. Rinse and Chamai dry
