Don't worry Rappy, I am actually reasonably careful when washing and polishing but no where near your standards my friend.

Best regards
Milton :biggrin:

Looking good Bloggsy :thumbs: :thumbs: .

What wax did you go with in the end?.

Claybar will make the wax bond a lot better inc, giving better protection. You are simply adding wax to a rough surface vs a smooth clayed surface.

Always use a clay prior to using a wax.

I would of simply used a spray wax for now. Until you can dedicate an extra 2 hrs to clay & seal.

Hi Rappy - thanks for that.

I used Meguiars Dark Wax (got it from Amazon). I used about a quarter of the tube, I think! :lol:

I've got some cheap spray wax which I'll be using to 'top it up' and keep some protection going until the better weather's here - then I'll do as you suggest and use clay, compound and wax.


Milton - looking nice! :thumbs: Don't our cars scrub up well! :grin:


Cheers
