Here are a collection of photos I just can't cram into one post in the detailing lounge! (WARNING - There's millions of them! )

The car was Cleaned and prepped with Zymol HD-Cleanse, followed by AutoGlym HD wax - kinda impressive!

And driving back Truro Cathedral looked amazing, so a quick sight seeing tour too... :cool:

Hope these photos are big enough - takes forever to upload a full resolution picture at 12 megapixels!

Awesome! I always get thirsty looking at your car when its all polished up cos of the shade of blue it is- must make me think of water or sumthin.

Looks incredible, very happy with that wax, got a lot of attention in town!!

It has its moments! Altho when you get a defender thats spent its life in a field you can have your work cut out for you!! But then when a brand new jag XFR crosses your path it makes it all worthwhile ;) :cool:

Stunning finish and equally stunning car! Ive fell in love with them since i got my MiTo and joined this forum! Since you do this for a living could you maybe give me a comparison? At present im using AG Aquawax after AG Shampoo Conditioner and the car looks stunning and shiny. It also stays alot cleaner for the whole week whereas before it was caked in dust from the Ind Est i work in. What are the benefits of HD wax over Aquawax and whats the difference?
Have you tried Dodo Juice wax or others? Its alot to pay for such a product so i want as much feedaback as poss before i splurge the cash on it:) Also how many coverings would you get out of a tub do you reckon? In other words will it last for yonks?

Must admit i'm not the Pro - Rachel the better half is - but i've used a fair few waxes over the years so should be able to make some comparions!

I have used the quick wax type stuff before, and of course provides a bit of gloss and water beading protection, but in my opinion spending a bit more time to apply a proper wax is well worth it.

I can compare the Autoglym to Zymol Ital, which is a hugely expensive (£300 a tub?) carnauba wax - went on well, came off well, and left the car with a stunning finish - but at that price it's a bit mental!

The HD wax is more expensive than a bottle of turtle wax, but a very different product - we reckon at 25 quid, you'll pay a pound a time when you wax the car (It'll do 25/30 applications per pot) and at a wax a month, you'll have the same pot in two years time, so well worth it!
