What polish combination did you use & what wax or sealant have you used for protection?

cheers

Hi Chris, I used Meguiars 105 then 205 polish, then Meguiars Gold Glass Carnauba Plus wax, all with a Meguiars G220 V2 DA polisher. The results are by no means pro-perfect but a lot better than it was; the car is going to be used regularly so I'm not looking for a show car finish.

It came without one - I'm going to put one on soon (clenched cheeks whenever I see a police car), trying to get hold of a nice quick release clip solution from the US.

That combo will have knocked out a large percentage of defects as you no doubt found so perfect for a regular use car

Please say that this is not a garage queen, but rather that you drive it every day and use it as it was intended?

Beautiful car and goes really well.

Thanks for sharing,

Richard
