Washed it with Tutle Wax Zip Wax, then Chamois leathered, and then Autoglym Super Resin Polish (with electric polisher!)

Only took me about 30 mins to do whole polish, and to be honest with you, i did the boot by hand and was a quick wipe over, yet it seemed to be some of the shiniest bits!!!



... but some of the shiney effects are a 'Star Refractor' filter for my SLR camera...!!! (cross style light effect)

That Turtle Wax Zip Wax is by far the best shampoo other than the autoglym stuff, it seems to work really well. I use it all the time now.

Might have to get some of the autoglym polish though, my polish is ok, but want something real special.

For money, i would say turtle wax is better than Autoglym... As it is much cheaper and does an equal or better job.

I'm gonna have to get some of this zip wax stuff, all i use at minute is some cheap wash and wax, then autoglym red polish. gonna get the black autoglym polish soon too and try that.

Yeah, definately advise the Zip Wax shampoo, I noticed the difference when I changed to it from the cheaper stuff :) It's not overly expensive, but really does bring it up with a nice shine :D Perfect for a good waxing :wink:
