How long did it take you doing a 4 stage polish?
I spent 10-12 hours total, divided over two days. Would usually have taken longer, but there was hardly any large contaminants, so didn't have to use the clay bar much.

Foamed up with Demon Shine using a hose attachment, wheels washed with a waffle brush, rinsed all over, washed with Meguirs Gold Standard shampoo and a mitt, rinsed again. Dried with a Meguirs towel. Windscreen polished with Autoglym glass polish, exterior plastics treated with Megs stuff on a small sponge. AG Super Resin Polish on the bonnet to hide some small scratches, followed by AG Aqua Wax all over.
Then a wipe over with Megs detailer for the final few smears. Interior hoovered & dusted over with Megs interior detailer & tailpipes polishes with Autosol.

My entry for Jan-19
I've been using some products from EZ Car Care. Last month I used the EZ Glaze followed by Nardo wax but didn't get around to take any photos. I found them very hard to remove even in the cold but pleased with the results.

This month a good wash followed by a spray over with the EZ Fusion spray sealant and topped off with Finish Kare #425 Ultra Slick Polywipe. I like the Fusion as a quick spray and jet wash off (like the Gyeon Wet Coat) but you have to be careful on dark colours to remove it in time. This time I used it like a drying aid and buffed after.

It's been a while since the thing saw a bit of soapy water. This morning I:

Washed it off with snow foam
Washed it with whatever shampoo was under the sink.
Dried it.
Had a further play with the DA on the roof (Megs ultimate compound, then black hole, then EGP by hand).
A quick tickle with quick detailer.
Tyres done with Auto Glym gel stuff

In spring the whole car will get the DA treatment followed by a was rather than EGP.
