OK, right. I used to be all into cleaning my car but now I couldn't really give a hoot. Especially when its all salty, manky and 'orrid on the roads. I keep the dirt down by letting the rain kiss it's silky blue skin, but really, I can't be arsed. However, in an act of sheer boredom today I cleaned it. Now I clayed the entire car just before winter set in and it looked pretty sexy. I machine polished it in the summer with G3 to get the rusted on remains of my brake discs off the paint after my carbone pads destroyed my brakes.

So anyways. It's in decent nick really. The paint isn't too badly scarred after the affair but it's just looking a bit flat. I need some products - nothing expensive - or some tips on how to bring the colour back out more. The bonnet never seems to come clean or shine very well. I can never get my windows looking very smear free either. I've tried stuff like Autoglym Glass Polish and it just seems to be shat. I usually use Megs mitt and NXT shampoo and I like it, plus it smells quite nice.

'elp!

Yeah but I stuck to my ethos. Cleaning is for people with no money to drive. I have no money until payday. So I cleaned. Pah!

:lol:


if the paint is flat, then you want something idealy with a abrasive in it, but a diminishable one, NOT T-CUT. something along the lines of poorboys SSR1 or megs 80. both of these will be ok for use by hand. Any wax is better than no wax ( within reason) again you cant go far wrong with nattys Blue wax or something alittle more durable like colli 476

as for cleaning my glass, i use spray and wipe ( poorboys ) and a microfibre and they come up spotless.
