    Default polishing

    hi all never really polished a car before but did so today using ag ultra deep shine!! what i want to know is how long does it last, when will it need to be done again? and how does it get washed again- just a normal wash or can i use a spray on wax aswell? hope this makes sense

    could do with a wax or sealant..or both to put on top of your polishing efforts as this will protect the clean paint that you have just polished... otherwise your efforts will be somewhat wasted..
    as for washing, once you have a layer of wax..it 'should' help to keep you r car protected from the elements and washing that little bit easier!

    it'll take more than a rain shower to remove the polish..

    just put some wax on it ( i use poorboys 'nattys blue' which is great on dark colours) and it'll really shine..

    id give it another polish after a wash then put some AG Extra Gloss Protection on, this will seal in the work you have done with the polish, then top it off with a layer of a good quality wax, loads to choose from, nattys is good, or dodo juice is very highly regarded over on www.detailingworld.co.uk - purple haze would be good for your car i think

    you could use a glaze after the polish, then a sealant or wax! for a wash any good wash like the autoglym wash & conditioner is best.
