    Vehicle : Ford Kuga

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 2.0dtci

    Year : 2014

    Mileage : 1200

    Default

    Before my health probs, I used to wash, then colour polish (to hide any scratches) then use Meguiars Gold, throw the duster on any flat surface after and it just slides off the car.
    Never used Clay either but keep hearing about it, had a decent selection at Halfords.

    i used to use some great polish that matched the colour of ya car,i forgot what it was called,but you had to get the closest match to your colour,plus like you said grumpy it did hide the lightish scratches
