    Default After a Clay and Wash.....

    ....what come next? I want to use SwirlX or Poorboys SSR etc to get rid of some swirling, but then Im a little bit confused if I should just wax, polish then wax, or polish then glaze then wax. Has anyone any thoughts on this?

    Ok. Are you going to use the Swirlx or SSR on a machine polisher? If not I dont know how effective these products are by hand. Id recommend Auto Glym Super Resin Polish as it has decent fillers in it to hide imperfections. After Polish its a Wax or Glaze. You can use Glaze and wax after each other but its not something ive ever done so cant comment on which way round to do it. Which wax and glaze are you considering?

    i usually do polish, glaze and then wax, both the polish and glaze have fillers and then the wax seals it all, looks really good. if you have a dark car then poorboys black hole is a really good glaze, i used it for the first time a few weeks ago and i was really impressed.

    Ive used and still use SRP a lot. I like it as a sort of all in one polish. Having just picked the Vectra up though, I want to give it a right good going over so that I just have to wash it regularly with the odd extra coat of wax here and there too.

    At the minute I have SRP, Poorboys White Diamond (my last car was silver, but this prob no good for the dark blue Vectra. Blackhole to replace it I think) and Poorboys nattys Paste Wax. All of them area always applied by hand as I have no DA.

    As mentioned above, Blackhole may well just replace my White Diamond that I currently have. Ive tried polish, glaze then wax using the products above on my silver 306 and it worked out well. Got some nice beading too afterwards. Lighter cars are normally easier to hide swirls etc on though so wanted to make sure my methods and materials will work on a dark colour.

    yeah stick to what you've listed and you should be fine, is your car ultra blue? if so that should come up lovely, i had a corsa in that colour and the finished result was always really nice

    Did mine last weekend (also ultra blue) with some new products, i used Zaino fusion, which i was massively impressed with! compared to others i've tried for swirl removal like SwirlX etc, very easy to use and made a very noticeable difference after little time (by hand)

    Then i used the usual black hole! followed by sonus sealant (can't remember the name) results are very impressive! no pics yet tho

    anyway, i'd highly recommend the Zaino fusion!!

    I would just use the black hole followed by sealant/wax. no real need for an additional polish i think, but everyone has their own preference

    I was reading the description of Zaino Fusion while browsing on Clean Your Car. Would you says its better than Poorboys SSR?

    Poorboys ssr comes in 4 different grade,s , as a paint cleaner there is not much that comes close to zaino fusion a very easy product to use with some astonishing results .
    For the next stage as others have said AG srp or poorboys blackhole on a dark coloured car . next stage up and i would of gone for either a wax of choice or jetseal 109 but today i used chemical guys new sealant Blacklight now this stuff is seriously very good this is the first sealant that is also a gloss enhancer plus to boot you can add a wax on top of it if you so wish which is not the case with some of the other sealents .
    Driving vauxhall,s for 30 + years
    and still loving it

    Think I may just be sold! Going to go for this I think. Opinions please:

    Rinse
    Clean wheels (Bilberry)
    Rinse wheels
    Wash using 2BM with Zaino #7
    Rinse
    Clay using Sonus lube
    Wash using 2BM
    Pat dry with waffleweave towel
    Zaino Fusion
    AG SRP (will swap to Blackhole once the SRP has run out)
    PB Nattys Paste Wax (two coats)

    I think I'll order some of the Blacklight when I get the Blackhole and incorporate that into my routine next time I give the car a proper going over. Im going to do the above for now, then keep on top of it with regular washing until its almost winter, then give it another good blitzing.
