Auto Glym :)


I agree that Auto Glym is very good but I also like Mer.

Based on that other thread's advice, yesterday I invested a mighty 9.99 in a Turtle wax mitt for washing the car and, being quite skeptical about this initially, I have to admit that after washing both mine and Noddy the result was far better than using a sponge.

Both cars were sparkling without any polish and, when we went out earlier today looking for patio sets, it was almost heartbreaking to have to get one of them dirty! :lol:

My Fiesta drew the short straw so Noddy is still sparkling!!! ;) ;) ;)

2nd bottle from left = super resin polish. Valet bag has Ultra Deep Shine and Extra Gloss protection in it. Thats just my show display. Also if it needed claying I'd get some, however it doesnt. No disrespect but considering before I bought it it looked like this

The next day it looks like this

5 years on it still looks as that picture, though more modified. I think I'm doing something right. But thanks for your comments.

just so you no super resin polish is not a wax and leaves no protection on the car. also if the car has never ever been clayed before i would suggest trying it to check the difference, its astonishing the change that can be made

it is great for getting rid of very fine swirl marks and suck like but you really need a wax for better protection.

Super resin polish is just as it says a paint polish. Wax is always always needed.

If my old car could polish up so well, I would get a whole lot more for part exchange.

Why diss my car, it looks fine for 9 years old and 105,000 miles. Again thanks for your opinion but I'm happy with my car looking how it does thanks.


Description
Long Term Beauty Treatment For All Paint Types.

Periodic polishing will remove surface contaminants which may otherwise harm your vehicle's paintwork. Super Resin Polish provides a tough, shiny, protective barrier, acting as a combination cleaner, polisher and paint sealant.

Easy to use and safe on all types new or mildly oxidised paintwork including metallic, clearcoat and water-based finishes.

Afterwards apply a coat of Extra Gloss Protection for that Ultimate Finish.


I'd rather listen to what they say than someones free "advice" who cant even manage to spell KNOW correctly in the first sentence he speaks to me
