if you have swirl marks your best bet is to get someone to get them out for you unless you have a DA polisher.

If your after a DA polisher most people get the meguiars or the Kestral.

Lots of people have different opinions on polish and pads but i would firstly try out lime prime and a finishing pad maybe a 3M finishing pad

Have just used my Duragloss Aquawax for the first time as a Red Mist replacement.

First impressions are outstanding - goes on brilliantly and feels much more like a protective product than Red Mist. I always half wondered if I was actually doing anything when applying Red Mist, as it's spray on/wipe off. With this, you do a whole section of the car, then buff off. I can feel the layer that's put down with a quick sweep of the finger. It'll be interesting to see how it cures tonight.

It's half the price of Red Mist as well :lol:

Dan wakes up to find his fiesta a nice orange colour, with a sign posted on the bonnet saying, should have sticked with the dodo.

:lol: I think the guys at Dodo will forgive me - I still use just about every other product they make. Being allergic to Red Mist is a good reason to give it up I think.

Greeny - the pro versions of the waxes contain the same solvents as Red Mist I'm told, that rules them out for me :(

I'm going to take the AG High Def off sooner rather than later I think - decisions decisions, Double Wax, Hard Candy and Rainforest Rub or Supernatural topped with Rainforest Rub?

Oh, and I still haven't used my BOS yet either :blink:

I use Lime Prime Lite every time I apply fresh wax - Lime Prime itself isn't really suitable for new paint unless you specifically need correction for swirls or similar.

You can - yes. The paint cleanser will improve the way the wax bonds to the surface however. I have both Lime Prime and Lime Prime Lite - that way if I need correction I can use the Lime Prime, and if I don't I can use Lime Prime Lite.
