    easy - get this.......

    http://www.cleanyourcar.co.uk/zaino/.../prod_485.html

    it will work a treat and allow you to detail in the right stages and then add to it as you want.

    the best stuff - I've got everything they do.

    Have you thought about moving up to meg's professional range, I'm in the same boat and have seen great results.

    a clayed my car not long ago now but with the bad weather av not had a good chance till yesterday to wash the car from a few months ago,n all the salt and grits taken its toll,bottom half of the car seems like its gotten it tight over the months so a good claying will sort that out again,a like the gold class shampoo from meguiars,and i use snow foam too,need to get myself some better cloth's n other accessories like that,just the polish wax and sealants id like to improve on,had a look through detailingworld,probably not well enough though.cheers for the links think av spent a fair bit already so far,needin to get my things together in the shed so i know what i have and what i need

    Collinite 476s is a good wax for dark colours and only £15 a tub, if you are doing it by hand then I would recommend you use something like Poorboys black hole as a cleaner/filler for fine swirls, maybe 2/3 coats then Colly 476s maybe 2/3 coats and I usually finish off with Dojo Red mist for that extra gloss to go with the depth you will get from Colly. After that all you need to use after washing is spraying over with the red mist as this also acts as a sealant.
