1) Powerwash car with easing up liquid to remove any existing product
2) Using 2 bucket method remove grit with microfibres mit
3) Claybar Car (Autoglym kit) - diluted deninshibe makes good clay lube
4) Step 1 again
5) Dry car
6) Apply 2 coats of CG black light
7) apply 1 coat of CGv7 hybrid
8) Apply 1-2 coats of Petes 53 wax

Oh nice one - I never thought to re-wash my car after claying.. I usually use spray on water for lubrication for claying, what is Deninshibe - google threw up nothing?

Will check out Chemical Guys thanks man

Demonshine is sort of a hydrophobic substance basically you stick it in a bottle dilute spray the car and drive it and it drys itself - not as good a finish as wax and sealants and it does interfer with the LSP...it does however make great clay lubricant

Having said that Tesco had them for 25cents for 2 litres a few years back pretty sure I'll never get through what I got at the time , if you want one let me know.

Other than that I'll make a list of products I use but anything CG, 3M, Autoglym you can't really go wrong. Im sure different products will be more suited to your cars redness.

Detailingshed do stock most items

I got some new toys a few weeks ago, yet to try them out. Passed the NCT last week so I'll treat it to some TLC at the weekend if the weather is good

I got all that from the same place

900 watt DAS6 Pro with 8mm throw & 5" backing plate
http://www.in2detailing.co.uk/das-6-pro-...action-polisher.html


Chemical Guys Hex Logic Pads
http://www.in2detailing.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=hex-logic


I've just seen that they have a PLUS version now, not sure if it's worth another 50 bucks, I was having a look at other makes that offered the PLUS version when I was trying to see what one to get, and users were commenting that it was not as good at getting into the smaller nooks and corners. The PRO version is good enough for what I have to do and not a bad price
