    Hurry up Gazza eh

    A little tip, when hand applying wax etc to the bottom of the doors.....open them.....that way you don't get wax on the plastic trim which can sometimes be a pain to get off.....just a thought

    Gazza there are a couple of ways round that either.......take it VERY slowly or apply a rubber dressing before applying wax etc, wax won't stick to that.........something like Poorboys natural Look or AG Bumper & Rubber Care

    I hope you don't think I was being cheeky?

    I tried Collinite 845 today Ed.......just as good as the others possibly slightly sharper in appearance ..........it's more like a jelly rather than a paste and comes in a bottle as opposed to a tin

    Bri . No offence taken m8....

    I was going to some pics but too engrossed....

    I am not one for really getting into detailing however I can see how people can. It calming and gives a sense of achievement.

    I wash with standard Autoglym Bodywash , Autoglym Resin , and Autoglym glass care...

    Happy with the results...

    Gazza,

    AG SRP is a polish and therefore abrasive you should only do this.......well I only do it twice a year, during the pre winter detail and then the post winter detail, the rest of the time you should use wax (none abrasive)

    I know what you mean about not taking pics cause you were engrossed.........same here

    Hi bryan I nearly bought some colinite 845, but I thought I would try 476 first, Didn,t the Yanks use the 845 as an insulator wax on electricty pylons or something of the likes?.
