i am after some advice, i have a zetec s tdci fiesta in frozen white and obviously at this time off year very difficult to keep it looking its best. Is there a decent polish on the market that helps retain its looks longer and helps in repelling dirt etc.

Have something to contribute?

hi mate,
this kit is good for providing a protective layer on the car, and a great box for storing all the detailing bits plenty of room for extra bottles in it Click Here

best thing to do is to wash, then shammy, after you have down this then go over the car with a micro fibre cloth :) i have a black car and works wonders!

+1 for thekit Lenny suggested, I think he was the one who advised me of the same kit last year. I gave it a good wash and then put some 'Demon Shine' on it, dried it off with a leather chamois and then applied some wax. It looked as new and when it rains the water repels off it and ends up in bubbles. Perfect!

Haha cheers mate :) I took that picture when I first got the old girl, I haven't had the car for very long but she's a mess as of now because I had to drive through the lanes earlier to avoid some traffic. Deciding what's best, a filthy car or sitting in traffic for an hour :blink:
