    Default how to acheive the deepest shine??

    Whats the best way to acheive the deepest glossiest shine on my black motor. It gives off a good shine as it is but i'm up for any tips that will make it better. Here is what i plan on doing.

    Rinse with light spray on jet wash
    Snowfoam
    Jet wash off
    Snowfoam again
    Wash using 2 buckets and with wash mitt
    Jet wash off
    Clay
    Snowfoam again
    Wash again with 2 buckets and wash mitt
    Rinse with light spray on jet wash
    Dry using water towel/chamoix
    3 coats of auto glym SRP (super resin polish)
    1 coat of auto gylm EGP (extra gloss protection)
    1 coat of colenite hard wax.

    If heard of people using something called a glaze to give a better shine but not sure what this is?

    Also heard people using a softer liquid wax before a hard wax?

    Another tip i heard of wash to use a speed detailer spray after waxing and buff off?

    What are your thoughts guys

    Thanks

    The blackhole is some great stuff mate. If you can't get hold of any for PVS then get hold of some anyway, it won't disappoint

    As per the name mate (sealant) is seals in the work that you've done on the car (polish, filler, glaze etc...)

    If you car has been detailed by Lump I guess it was machine polished, I would skip the SRP as well and use Black hole for the filling of any swirls than may have popped up due to washing.

    I also find that foaming on to a dry car the foam will cling for longer givein its cleaning properties longer to work
    so foam, rinse
    foam and 2 bucket wash
    rinse
    As your claying I would wash again to ensure its spotless before claying
    Clay and wash again to remove the residue
    Black hole 1 or 2 coats if you need to
    then a few coats of collinite leaveing as long as you can between coats that should set you up for a good few month.
