Went out this morning and couldn't resist taking some beading shots. This is what two coats of Autoglym HD and one of Dodo Red Mist can produce...


Haha...that looks awesome :D

Thinking on treating myself to a drying towel instead of using the chamois.
Which would you all reccomend?
Thanks :D

They don't make a polish as such - Lime Prime is as close as they get, and strictly speaking that's a paint cleanser. It does however have a little cut and will correct paint in much the same way that Autgoglym Super Resin Polish does.

It also forms a great base for one of their waxes - or any other wax in fact. Lime Prime - Dodo Hard Wax - Dodo Soft Wax - Red Mist gives me great results, but it turns out I'm allergic to Red Mist so I'm going to try something else.

Got my bilberry wheel cleaner today (and some other stuff). I bought some spray bottles from Homebase. I noticed Dan said you need chemical resistant bottles - are they going to melt or something?? It says on the bottle nice smell - it's flippin' horrible!
