Why are you using multiple glazing products AND abrasive polishes.
If you've used an abrasive properly you shouldn't need a glaze (unless you have deep scratches) and you only need one glaze, using more than one just replaces the fillers and doesn't benefit the finish.

I use the polish first to remove the worst of it but I go very lightly with it because I worry about over doing it and damaging the paint. I then use the glaze to fill what's left behind. I use multiple glazes because I find the turtle wax when added good and thick takes the white out of road rash. etc but doesn't last very long. So I layer the black light over the top as I like the extra shine it gives plus lasts longer. Then I seal over the top to add the last amount of shine I can get from it plus it lasts a couple months with it. The car always looks soaking wet when it's clean I love it..

I'm sure other people do things that would be questionable to others but it's personal preference at the end of the day and I like what I do and that's all that matters at the end of the day I suppose.

Cleaned the brera this weekend

IT WAS AUTO GLYM ALL THE WAY.

1. Bodywork shampoo conditioner.

2. Super resin polish.

3. Extra gloss protection.

Oh and tesco glass cleaner, every little helps.

I prefer Auto Glym car glass polish over fast glass.
Must re-stock for next month.

I hate the dust it creates. Reminds me of turtle wax in the green bottle or something! Really annoying having to go back over your work

You're using too much if it's dusty. A very common mistake.

I found the the new formula SRP produced a lot less dust than the old.

That Dolly came up well Tommy, !850HL? My dad had a 1300 the same colour a long time ago.

Not sure if I'm too late but I'll give it a go anyway.

Products used:

Corporation pop
An old mop bucket
A grit guard made from a child's plastic tennis racket
Tesco car shampoo (Melon and cucumber fragrance)
A noodle sponge
Some microfibre cloths from Home Bargains
A small amount of Autosmart Highstyle for the bumpers (£6 for a litre)

Dolly interiors were way ahead of anything Ford or Vauxhall could offer at the time. My dad's lowly 1300 had the wood dash & door cappings, leather sports wheel, and cloth seats instead of vinyl.
