I just double checked. £24 of that is admin fee. Im in the wrong industry


The admin fees are shocking, I got charged by Adrian Flux for changing the start date yes start date you read that right!! Won't use them again as they were terrible. I changed cars from a 300bhp Mazda 3 mps to a 110 bhp focus tdci and they told me there would be no refund but would also need an admin fee to alter my policy for the remaining 7 weeks!!

No worries at all, happy to help where I can. I have a memory like a sieve so just remind me if you've not heard anything by Monday as I'm off all next week so will get something posted. I will see what else I can dig put as I'm a bit of a hoarder when it comes to cleaning products.

The choices are endless and everyone on Detailing world has their favourites but black hole has always been my goto on black cars or dark coloured cars.

I will have a look see if I've got a little bottle kicking around and put some in it for you to try. I'm sure I have some little 50ml sample bottles from stuff I've been given so will send you some.

Claying will really give a nice smooth to touch surface so really worth doing IMO.

Super resin polish is very good and if you have it I'd go with that unless you want to try something else but the prima amigo does get very good press but I've not used it myself.Just to throw another one in there.....have a look at poorboys black hole, works really well on dark cars and contains fillers so any minor swirls it would go a decent way to hiding them.

Shame were opposite ends if the country or you could have had a go with stuff I've got as I've got a shed full as I've got a bit of an OCD for car cleaning....sort of try before you buy lol.

Yeah its great stuff and loads in the tin. In the process of getting a snow foam lance, some Mfibre drying towels, mitts and cloths, some decent shampoo and a polish to go on before the FK1000P. Will be washing the car myself from now on ;)

Any ideas what you're going for?

Over on detailing world Autobrite do a group buy which is on all the time on HD snow foam lance and Magifoam combo which is a very very good foam. I've got some Magifoam and Chemical Guys no touch which are very good.

Have a look at Car Chem for shampoo,towels, mitts and cloths as they are very good but unless you're ordering a few items postage may seem high. If you subscribe to their newsletter they always send you links to offers

Failing that you could contact your local Autosmart rep for all your detailing needs however they only deal in 5l products so will get expensive quickly, especially once you get in the truck and start looking around.

When you say polish are looking to correct swirl marks and minor scratches by hand or by machine or just a good clean base before re waxing?

Also you can't beat a good clay before you set about polishing and waxing, bilt hamber clay is cheap and very good and you can use soy water as lube so no need for extra expense of a dedicated clay lube

Looking good mate, I see you went for the FK1000P. It's also great on paintwork and very durable especially in these conditions with salt on the roads

No probs mate

I'd wash them first and ideally a wipe down with IPA/water mix to make sure the using is über clean so the FK or the slick rims has a good clean surface to bond to.

The cleaner the surface and better the prep then the better durability of your chosen sealant

Accidental scratch or on purpose? Pics would help.

DON'T use T Cut it is very abrasive. If you can feel a ridge when you run your mail accross it then it may not go completely.

By hand a good combo is GTechniq P1 and a tri foam app. Depending on depth it may still be visible after that so something that's filler heavy might help reduce it also.

If they're brand new if clay them and wash them ready for sealant.

If you go down the sealant route you should then only need soapy water to clean.

Lots of options for wheel sealants, they're wheel waxes or nano sealants.

If you're feeling flush try the slick rims wheel sealant, good for 10k

If you'd prefer a more budget option you could do a lot worse than FK1000P plus you can use this on bodywork too for great winter protection.

That's the two I'd be looking at. FK1000P will last ages and slickrims is 100ml and will do about 4-6 sets of alloys

I had a look today... No sign of a bulb holder... Possibly the mount for the bulb holder though. A picture would be grand!


Mines the same, bulb mounting point there but that's it unfortunately
