    Default "Say Hello to my little friends......"

    Well for all of those are in the pursuit of "Glossy, Swirl Free" Paint, may I introduce you to the mob who got me to heaven.

    After trying a myriad of combinations with AutoGlym / Zymol / Meguiars etc., I reached the "Pinnacle of Shine"

    Pity the same cannot be said about my "mug".............And yes, I do get "stuck in" when detailing the car..........hence no windows/tail lights...........

    Technical section, "Car care products'...

    i'd go a Klasse (i can personally vouch for this stuff) or NXT, then a layer of was on top for extra shine if needed.
    The clio always came up really good with just the Klasse. It also removed the swirl marks i had when the car was delivered.

    Nate,
    SUe's Xsara has a large 'swirl' on the bonnet where it looks like someone has rested something on it and dragged it off. Would this sort of product be OK for that? It isn't down to the paint just in the top clear coat I guess.

    Car looks nice and shiny. Pity about the ugly lump out the left hand side though. Is that repairable?

    Thats the sealant, you'll need to get the red bottle (cleaner & sealant) before you layer that one up...

    Car care products thread has SOOO much info!!!

    as for swirl/drag marks... it'll cover up minute swirls, any scratches as such or mechanical damage it wont fix.
    Basically anything thats probably a few microns deep in the top coat.

    I must be very clean and shiny, 'cos I've never noticed orange peel in a photo before.... I'm suprised how much there is in that cars paint (for a brand new car) Looks very nice though ... Maybe oneday I'll have a new car with nice shiny new paint (just after the lottery numbers come though ).

    What great friends you have there! Looks like they do a friken sweet job.

    Dude, my car was in the outside sun through the summer holidays. Would this have done damage to the duco?? It is covered these days. But would it have damaged the duco in this time? It seems the same but I hope that time in the sun wouldn't have damaged it. I thought a long period of time does it...

    If I wanted to get my car proffesionally waxed, were in sydney would be a good place to go?? How much would it cost me

    Thanks

    Rusty,

    doubt it would've had a lot of effect, its more cumulative i think.
    I'd be more concerend about the rubber & plastics.

    Where to go?
    DIY, its the only garanteed way!

    Ring around & get some quotes, then drop me a PM.
    I'm around the corner & have all the kit.

    Sif get others to wax your car mang, thats like getting your friend to sleep with your wife or in your case boyfriend.

    Rusty i suggest use your cash cash money & investing in some quality cleaning gear & a good quality buffer, that will last the test of time.

    You should be a little scared. I know of someone who have pushed too hard with an orbital ( correct buff on it and all ) and seriously worn the paint down. This was on a body contour line, but shows you need to be careful.

    As long as you keep a car clean and waxed, a buff should only be used just a couple of times a year.

    I can lend you a "house brick" tool to aid the removal of the window if you like. I'll need the "house brick" tool back though as it's re-usable. You can use it to aid the removal of as many windows as you require.
