Whilst Megs No7 can work well on single stage paint, to my mind its true strength is on reviving neglected older paints.

I've just taken the plunge and ordered a bottle from the states. Cost a bloody fortune but if it's the stuff that I'm after then it's got to be worth it.

Megs #7 still available?

If itís shipped via eBay GSP itís what the listing price is. No further charges.

I just had a look on Amazon.com would cost about £30 delivered... not so cheap but depends on how bad you want it.

Yeah itís a bit more expensive. If I knew it worked it wouldnít be a prob, Ive bought previous stuff which is sitting in my detailing box at home which didnít do as good.... hmmmm decisions

If you are looking to rehydrate and preserve as much of the original paint as possible #7 does work, alternatively you could try Megs Ultimate Compound which is readily available?

Just spent 2 hours today with megs ultimate on a nice soft white pad, but it doesnít half get red.... Iím concerned the red will soon run out lol

Great stuff though, really brings out red and shines. I then run a bilt hamber autobalm and then a megs nxt2 tech wax or serious performance sealant to try and keep the sun from bleaching and drying my van out.

I get the concern. UC and #7 do different things, ones a compound and the other is a pure polish. If the paint is in good condition now, then #7 or similar would be better for the future if maintained on I'm guessing a single stage red car
