Detailing a White Vito van

Hi, Iíll be picking a 5 year old Vito in white tomorrow, the paintwork is in good condition and has been buffed to remove the marks left by the previous owners livery.

I want to get started detailing asap but unsure whether to just go over it with AG SRP followed by EGP and then HD wax.

I looking for suggestion of any other polishes I could apply by hand to keep the vehicle looking clean and the water / dirt beading off it.

Thanks in advance.

AG themselves donít recommend using both EGP and HD wax - use 1 or the other and probably the HD wax would be the better choice

EGP is still good - Iíd be tempted to use it on your wheels as a sealant - not the easiest to buff up, but on small areas itís fine (like wheels) and Iíve had good results from it previously...

If the van was 'buffed" by the dealer I would say it wants a proper decontamination and machine polishing again. The dealer will have not given a care other than getting it looking shiny . Under any streetlights I'd imagine the van is covered in buffer trails etc , sorry to be the bearer of bad news . I hope you manage to get it sorted .

By hand then bilt hamber cleaner polish followed by their double speed wax is a good combo, very good beading. Using Sonax BSD as a drying aid after routine washes will keep good water and dirt repellancy
