    Default 2bucket wash, chamois, clay, polish, glaze & wax..........

    .........bonnet
    This is what I thought of the results.
    a/g wash & conditioner as always nice and chamoied
    Maguires clay - did seem smoother
    A/G super resin polish - seemed O.K.
    Then............
    Maguires No7 Glaze.................why did I bother? just didnt seem to do anything?, as soon as I put some on it seemed to bead, and didnt seem to be an improvement when I took it off before it dried?
    Poorboys Nattys wax...........always a good un.
    Looked at the wings to compare with the bonnet...........couldnt tell the difference, did feel smoother though probably the clay. Otherwise, just dont see the point of the polish & glaze, so will deffinately skip them, and stick to wash & wax in future......

    Mine is star silver and I use #7 and it works a treat for me, in fact #7 was recommended by loads of guys on DW to work well with silvers. It might not work well with your natty's though but does a great job with #16.

    Dont see what difference the wax makes, as it goes on after, and is just a clear coat of protection? As I said when I tried to put the glaze on, it went very thin, streaky, and almost beaded? and didnt notice any improvement. I usually use Nattys and it works well for me after a good wash? ( Although I do have a bottle of Colinite 845 to try when it runs out).

    I've used Megs #7 twice now. It went on fine and came off fine. Wasn't streaky.

    I did one panel at a time with a tiny amount.

    I've used clay several times. Afterwards the car didn't seem smoother. It was like glass.
