    Default Cleaned and polished and polished then sealant then carnauaba wax

    Hello All,

    Just a quick post to introduce myself.

    Recently purchased 05 plate 2.2 Direct SRI Colour Black.

    Noticed the finish was chronic, car didn`t seem to have been polished in quite a while. So, invested in some cleaning products-;

    Sonus paintwork cleaner
    poorboys black hole
    German foams
    Small round foam applicators
    Autoglym sealant
    Collinite 476S carnauba wax
    Masses of microfibre cloths

    Spent 8 hrs spread over 3 days cleaning, polishing, applying sealant and finally carnauba wax.

    Will post pictures as soon as able.

    Cheers

    Welcome to the forums.

    How did you find the Black Hole to use, easy on/off? As blinging as some of the reviews claim?

    Oh yeah:

    sealant then wax - strange mix....?

    should be polish then wax.

    sealant and wax do the same thing - ones synthetic, ones natural, both don't really give a bling to the finish, they just seal whats underneath.

    8 hours....I bet it looks good after that.

    I use image shack for my pics - its an easy one to use.

    here's my last clean - http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...08#post1810608

    try zaino - blummin good stuff.

    happy cleaning....
