    m8 the shine will last just as long as usual claying isn't as much to gain shine but to remove contamination from ot the paint after u finish claying make sure u follow with a good polish and wax, if feelig xtra generous a coat of sealent before the wax i like to use auto glym super resin polish,auto glym extra gloss protection then two coats of collinite, wait 1hr between the coats of waxto give the first coat time to work into the paint first.

    i was gonna do this to mine too.. but with the weather being oh so gret, i think it's abit pointless.
    might give it a wash on sat, but nothing to special. am gonna save it till we get some warmer weather.. whenever that is! lol

    Ah sounds like a plan saved me one rushed job might just wash it then for now.
    and wait for a nice day and do it all in one.

    1 More question I have got a Scratch on my rear quarter panel I have used them touch up pens but you can still see it its how would I get rid of this?

    i would still recomend giving the car a good going over. its this time of year the car needs to be polished and waxed so that the paint work is protected against the bad weather. with regard to the scratch m8 use a touch up pen which gives the best match to ur paint then polish i meen really get behind it and blend the repair in so not to see it if u have a machine polisher then get that on it.but like i say i would still do the car if we get a break in the weather to keep her in tip top condition,if u want the car clean at the meet take some water a wash mit and a microfibre towel with u then give the car a quick wipe over before everyone turns up.lol
