Christmas list....

Its that time of year again and this year instead of asking for things i don't really need but think i want i'm going to ask for some useful things like ... LOADS AND LOADS OF DETAILING GOODIES!!!

So far i've got the following on my list:

Dodo Juice lime prime
Dodo juice red mist
Poorboys blackhole
Collinite 915
Chem guys pete's 53 wax

And some more megs #16 (cause it's brilliant!)

All recommendations welcome and also it would be good to see other peoples christmas lists.

Happy shopping guys

i got some duragloss 901 last week.
only used it once but it seems as good as the zymol autowash.
it has a cherry/medicine smell.

Get yourself some Aerospace 303 for plastics - Exterior and Interior.

You won't regret it and will never need to buy another trim detailer again.

Nice one. I'd totally overlooked trim products. I have heard a lot of good things said about this stuff as well.

For anyone looking for a good wax, I must recommend collinite 476s. Put a coat on yesterday and went out this morning to wash the car ready for another coat. As i rinsed the car the water was just completely sheeting off the car. I was stood there after with my water magnet with hardly a drop of water to dry!!

I've never had sheeting like that, even fom megs#16. Plus it goes on and off really easy. Plus with its renowned durability it should be a great product, especially for the winter months!

I do the whole car. By the time i've finished applying the wax it's about 20 mins since i did the first panel. I then just start buffing off in the same order I applied. With the temperature being a liitle cooler I left it an extra 10 mins before buffing off.

Also, make sure your applicator is nice and damp, its the best way to ensure yoy get a nice thin layer of wax on, which is essential! I just spray it periodically with detailing spray.

303 fabric guard is great stuff too. Gtechniq products are far superior to evey 303 one but this is reflected in the price! I use both on the cars that i look after

I was so close to buying 476 with the Carlack NSC but ended up buying what i actually need , some menz pads, full size and spot, 3 menz polishes and 2 DJ Finger Mouse wax applicators.
I got to try my winter LSP on Sunday, Finsh Kare 1000p Hi Temp Paste which blew me away and is meant to be very durable like 476. I'll defo get some though sooner or later!
I got 500ml Megs Hyperwash and 100ml CG Citrus Wash & Gloss the other day from a friend as we bought some sample bottles from Elite Car Care and did some swappsies. I gave him 100ml of PoorBoys Black Hole, ClearKote Red Moose Glaze and Lime Prime Lite. Hes got me 100ml CG EZ Creme Glaze made up. Great idea to try and buy different products then swap with each other.
Next on my list is the Werkstat Acrylic Kit from Polished Bliss.
Werkstat Acrylic Kit - Werkstat Car Care and Detailing Products
Dead easy to use and awesome gloss/shine etc. Sold out though at the mo.

When I got my MiTo I treated myself to tons and tons of Autoglym stuff, perhaps about £200 odd

As for Christmas, I kept saying to my new gf that I wanted a very expensive Tag Heuer watch and she's now come round to the idea Result!
