Look at Polished Bliss website.

Best budget Wax I've used is Swissvax Onyx, in fact its superb. Definately recommend it.

I've just bought Zymol Glasur, although think I'll go for Swissvax Best of Show next as SV stuff is awesome!

Tonnes!

As a minimum, clay the car to give it a nice clean up, give it a good polish to flatten it out and then a couple of layers of wax will keep it nice all year :)

Ah but when it does snow down there you guys don't know what to do and everyone must stay home!

We got the proper tools here and can go out (at least that what I tell myself is the reason we have snow like we do so we can stay in practice!!!) :devil:

(now that I sold my snowmobiles there is no reason for the stuff I guess) :mellow:

Fine with me. I can ALWAYS use a day off work.

FWIW, I'm pretty decent at driving in it...it's everybody else that keeps me off the road! :shock:

I second the Onyx. Its fabulous. I paid £85 but it is such good quality and lasts for ages and pro ratas the cost.

I use Simoniz wash and wax one a year if it needs it or not.

It's always applied using the industry standard 1 bucket and old sponge technique.

Any one else?

If I miss a bit then more soapy mix is lovingly applied to the affected areas by hand before being hosed off and left to dry.

Sometimes I even drive it before it drys properly, down my bumpy broken dirt track of a drive and the finish after that is simply superb, the dirt and grit flicked up the side looking all speedy n stuff!
