I've waxed it, and used hood restorer on the roof.

Takes time, but is well worth doing and it last ages. The wax finish comes up again after each wash again too.

Damien, can you remember what you used and where you got it from. Pics would be cool if you can find them.

Collinite 476's I think, cleanyourcar.co.uk is where I got it from. And we used Meguiars quik clay and detailer and Autoglym Super Resin Polish. All very good, and buy the litre of the autoglym as it is cheaper.

Re: Anyone detail their own Alfa???

I'm also thinking of doing this sometime. I've just got :
MEGUIARS Water Magnet Microfibre Car Drying Towel Cloth
MEGUAIRS Deep Pile Microfibre Car Valeting Wash Mitt
MEGUIARS Supreme Shine Microfibre Car Valeting Cloth
Meguiars Grit Guard Traps Away Grit & Dirt in Buckets

from ebay : eBay Shop - PERFORMANCE MOTORCARE PRODUCTS: MEGUIAR'S: MEGUIARS 3 Step Deep Crystal Car Paint Clean Polish Wax

Excellent prices including a big discount on shipping for combined purchases

I was going to get some NXT Generation shampoo & wax but version 2 of the wax is due out shortly

Nice Can't wait to see em. I can't recommend our stuff highly enough, meguiars is good but for the amount of effort put into taken it off, Autoglym is better quicker and easier to use.

Now that sounds like an idea that could reduce the turnout at a meet dramatically
