When the weather picks up im going to give the golf a good going over. When I give mine a clean I use autoglym body work shampoo and then wax it with greased lighting. Then coz theres a few light swirls im going to use poor boys black hole show glaze using the autoglym perfect polish cloth. Ive seen a few of the lads on here use zaino Z8 Grand Finale Spray Seal. Will that do the job or should I get someone to MOP the car?

personally i would machine the car if its got light swirls in it. then protect and keep on top of it there. DPB comes up really well when its been deep cleansed and then polished up i did a neighbours sirocco (well the back wing the other weekend and it came up lovely) he even said that it looks as if its had a paint job and needs the whole car going over...

Im only essex based, if you really fancy getting your hands dirty and you dont mind the drive over to essex i dont mind lending a hand, ive got the machine polisher etc. Will need a early start though as once you get started it takes a good 6 hours or so to complete, back breaking lol

X3 have a look at robs threads and you will see how good a mop brings cars up.

I'm itching for some good weather to start playing with my products again.

My jeatseal 109 has done itself proud this winter. Cleaning has been so easy.

i looked into cermaic nano coatings but they are a pain to apply (temp sensitive) and take days to cure properly.

Also ditch the autoglym shampoo as it is a cleaning shampoo which has some TFR (traffic film remover) in it. Get yourself a nice wax maintenance shampoo and quick detailer to help the protection last longer.

What shampoo do you think? I hear dodo juice is a good one?
