Including import duty itís £34. I know itís a lot but how much would you spend on other products and time trying them. Iíve just gone with the ďdo it once, do it rightĒ approach. If itís not up to what I want then Iíll sell the bottle on and take a bit of a loss but worth the try.

Been mulling this over and suspect 'Pure' from M&K might be worthwhile - awaiting email response

Iíve got a red car painted single stage thatís showing early signs of oxidation and which my Dad washed with contaminated wash mitt and induced minor marring. Iíll use this to feed the paint, to restore it and hopefully reduce the marring before I protect it.

Yeah mine is a Vw transporter t4 ss red/pink paint....

Iíve posted a couple of pics of when I bought the van had sat for a while when the engine was being rebuilt and the body was bad. Spent ages getting it back Iíll have a hunt for some pics

the paint can be saved if worked on so a nice product is a must.

Bit gutted if megs 7 is discontinued. I’ll have to look for an alternative make maybe?. Wonder if the van would appreciate a massage in ‘baby oil’ to get the oils back in the paint?,., ��

Then Megs are lying... unless they meant in the UK.

It is clearly still in their Commercial Catalogue stateside......

So ebay / amazon or other looks to be the only way.
