Westerman, I know you like ONR so when you get a chance it might be worth looking at the rest of the Optimum range. For example, with their polish, no need for IPA after polishing, just wipe with a ONR dampened cloth or if that seems like hard work then use their spray wax to remove the polish oils and protect the paint in one step.
Cheers, very helpful. I did suspect that it might be beneficial, albeit only slightly, to clean the panels with the BH Cleaner Fluid, prior to polish and for the very reasons you give.
It may all prove too labour intensive for my old bones so I'll see how I go.

As for the ONR, Yes I love it and your suggestions are very interesting.

I have already invested in the Cleaner Fluid and AG UHD wax and UHD shampoo at some cost so will be going that route this time.

Thanks again,

Harry
