Right well it depends on how in depth you want to go with cleaning it.

I firstly use 'sour power' shampoo 'the green one' couple of squirts into a bucket of water does perfectly.

I then dry it and clay bar it, I use a 'green Sonus' clay bar and the orange bottle on my roof is 'Born Slippy' clay lube, dilute this 5:1, you only need to clay twice a year if that.

I then wash again but with plain water.

Then use 'Lime Prime Lite' this helps the wax to bond to the paint - its the green bottle on my roof and its perfect for new cars and paint. Put this on with an applicator pad and wipe off straight away with a microfibre cloth.

Then the blue tub is 'Blue Velvet' hard wax, don't get a soft wax as it can get abit messy. Leave the wax for 15 mins to dry and then buff off with another microfibre.

Theres lots of other things but thats as simple as it can be. I now just wash and red mist mine every couple of weeks.

That stuff really does the business then......

Looking at the first picture it looks like the bottles are sitting on a mirror until you see the aerial anyway! ;)

Greeny - this and your other cleaning thread have been really useful, so thanks.

I noticed that Halfords have 3 for 2 on car cleaning gear at the moment, so I've ordered a load of Autoglym from them and also ordered some dodo juice bits from elsewhere. Shame I haven't got a car to use them on yet. At least I decided to ditch the diamondbrite I suppose!

So you made the decision on the Diamondbrite, well done!! There's still a bit of doubt in my mind about it but I think I will also give it a miss...

blue velvet or purple haze would be ideal.

Unless you have an extra few then i would go for supernatural

I'm really liking the look of these dodo products, think I will use them on my car. Only downside is the range - there is loads!! one of the waxes costs 100!!

I have no car cleaning gear at all, nothing! Its going to cost me a bomb to set up a stash of products!
