    Hi Steve.

    Don't waste your money on this stuff. The best finish is always achieved by claying, machine polishing then waxing but you don't have these available.

    What i would go for is some Auto Glym Super Resin Polish followed by a wax. SRP has mild fillers in it so will mask any fine scratches you have while at the same time leaving a really good finish.

    HTH

    Snowman, you got your ears on?

    Lambswool washmitts can be quite expensive so pop down to B&Q and get yourself some grout sponges.

    They are having good reviews over on Detailing World and I've been using them for well over 6 months now on my black Vectra as opposed to washmitts I used to use and they are great. The difference to normal carwash sponges is that the pores are larger so do not trap dirt like carwash sponges that cause swirl marks.

    Of course, you will only get could results by using the correct washing method and that is the 2 Bucket Method.

    Paul.
