Chemical Guys - All-In-One Polish

I'm sure the experts will say you're far better off doing each stage separately as opposed using an 'all in one' product, but I've heard good reports of Chemical Guys products and wondered if it would be a good time saver?

Someone will have to explain to this ignoramus why the adversity to a silcone preparation for a vehicular shine? Apart from how essential it is to completely remove it, before any refinishing process is attempted?

After the Zymol treatment, that's how I kept Bella mirrored like, just a light wipe over with the silicone multi-fibred impregnated cloth. The new owner was very complimentary on how immaculate she looked, before driving off.:):

I haven't tried that particular stuff, but I've got other Chemical Guys products (Butter Wet Wax and Wet Mirror Finish) and they're both first rate.

Well I'll be frank,(or pete, or fred, but never dave:D) I reckon a lot of those polishes are well overpriced, but if you have the dosh, go spend it.

Come the Depression, following the Recession, we'll all be using old cooking oil to keep them a shining, doubt we'll be driving far though?:D:lol:

Chemical products -- first class, I know them from using on my Lotus and there is a guy called 'shine on' (top class detailer ) who would be happy to endorse their products

If I ever get to the stage that I can't keep my motor looking good, with a bit of elbow grease, I'll pack up motoring.:):

Anyone want an old AID, for primer, and a good Binks Bullows Barracuda, giving about an 8"fan for top-coats?

Thought not, all using HVLP's in the Green Zone now I guess?:D

Thanks for the comments. I don't pretend to be an expert detailer but I do love to keep the alfa looking good like most AO's. With this particualr all in one product, do you think it would be good as just that? - Or would I be better off using a sealer afterwards as well? Although I agree some of these products do seem pricy as Zulu said, from what I've heard it's like most quality products - pay more but they last a lot longer as you have to use less...

I have both of these;

Chemical Guys Wet Mirror Finish

Chemical Guys - Citrus Wash & Gloss

They are both incredible! Before using these expensive washes and waxes I always used the cheapest I could find, ASDA stuff, £2/litre.
But I will never go back - you would not believe the shine this stuff give you. The car draws so much attention now. The chemical guy's stuff is worth it's weight in gold. Just follow the instructions to the letter and dry with a nice micro-fibre cloth (even a cheap one from Tesco).

I also ordered from the same website, good prices, fast delivery. I doubt I will ever use anywhere else.

Funkstar, do you see the benefits of using a more premium 'wash'/shampoo? I have appreciated using more expensive polish and wax but I'm still using the typical highstreet ZipWax or Triplewax shampoo for just a few quid - It worth upgrading?

Well, I am not experienced in many different washes/shampoos, I have used cheap **** nearly all my days. All I can tell you is this, the first time I tried a high quality/premium shampoo, it made the world of difference. Never looked back.
