    Hi mate.

    If you use the scratch x on any defects after washing the car. (better with a wash bucket, seperate rinse bucket and a wash mitt)

    Then use your super resin polish, followed by the extra gloss protection. and your car should be nice and shiny!

    I have used this combination on red vauxhall paint before on my old corsa and it works really well

    Yep you can use it on un painted plastic and remember to do the wheels, arches and tyres first although don't apply the tyre gel until you're almost finished the whole detail

    I get the wee sponge scourers (yellow with the green rough bit) cut in half and use the sponge side. its about tyre size then so quite good and they are cheap. i also use a rubber glove with the tyre gel as its very messy i find.

    Whens the best time to clean the tyres and apply the gel...I always clean the Alloys and Tyres before washing the car, then apply the Gel as one of my last jobs....any ideas for inside the Arches aswell???

    P.s Really like the Cheap Sponge / Scourer idea......I'm getting through Hunderds of Meguiars applicators and ££££££

    I've yet to try the sponge as an applicator on paintwork but could be a plan. i clean/wash tyres after doing the car while letting it dry a bit. tbh i have not done mine nearly as often as i should though
