Hope the Boss isn't on AO!

Clayed her a few weeks ago so she didn't need doing.
Washed with Zymol autowash and mit,
One coat of Megs scratch-x,
two coats of zymol carnuaba wax,
Topped off with Megs hand glaze no.7
Forgot to take before pics but she scrubs up no' bad

I'll get back to you on that one Roy - she's parked where the snaps were taken- by the way,do you reckon the Jeffs Acrylic Gloss and trigger would bring on a deep shine better-if not any ideas? Cheers

Re: Hope the Boss isn't on AO!

Yep you could use the Jeffs to and build up a couple of layers to add extra gloss. I have used it a few times and was impressed with the "wetness" it gave to the paint on lighter coloured cars.

If you have a red or darker car then Zymol Carbon wax or Concours wax would be the best.

Front

Rear

My car using Ital wax (old version) which is essentially the same as Concours wax. Carbon wax will give a similar look just won't last as long.
