    Default Best 'wet look' finish for silver

    Anyone got any recommendations?

    Just getting into the detailing side of things on me new mota', star silver CDTi 150 and was wondering what other peeps have found to be the best combo for that gleam on light colours.

    Currently using Megs Gold class wash, AG SRP, AG EGP then Megs Deep Crystal caranuba.

    Used all that on the other halfs A3 and it came up gleaming, much better than my veccy. Dont get me wrong, the veccy came out nice, and as smooth as glass, but ooooh i would so like that wet look everyone craves

    So, over to u, any suggestions on the wax or a change of combo of the above?

    ta.

    too be honest with you m8 that combo is probably just as good as any other's any one mite recomend, maybe try some collinite 915 or even some valentines from mark (autobrite),have you ever machine polished the car to get the surface really smooth 'n' shiney. also if u don't allready do so dress ur tyres and trim with a wet look dressing this will help also.
