Farecla Super Gloss paste wax for me as it is so easy to apply and take off even in the winter.

I'm going to be using OCD Nebula topped up with Gyeon Wet Coat (can't believe this stuff really works)

Car only does 3000 miles a year so I can get away with it

I've mentioned in this post previously about my purchase of fk1000p. But can someone tell me how I remove my build up of summer wax to give it a clean start. I'm still very much new to this detailing so still learning. I have power maxxed tfr that I use in diluted form occasionally, is this any good?

Any abrasive polish or paint cleanser is the only surefire way to remove old protection

Something like dodo juice lime prime or by cleanser polish will do the trick

Just done mine. Deep clean and a fresh coat of FK1000p.

That should get me through to Spring, as it will be topped with BSD on a fairly regular basis.

I have only been using it for a couple of months, but i really do like the look that FK1000p gives on my Reflex Silver VW Golf. Its hard to make it stand out in any way (like all Silver cars), but this stuff seems to give a noticably glassy, shiny look to the paintwork and it makes the flake stand out pretty well too.

The car is mostly painted, but the few areas of smooth black plastic have had the FK treatment too and it has worked pretty well. Side glass too.

The wheels have got BSD on at the moment, but when i have more time they are getting a proper clean and FK on them - probably next weekend.

I'm still very unsure which route to go down this year. I have my silver Golf and the Girlfriends Red Corsa to do.

My current options are:
collinite 476
AG HD Wax
Swissvax Shield
AF Powerseal
AF Desire

I'm thinking I'll probably go for a couple of coats of Powerseal on the girlfriends corsa and maybe some shield on my golf

Mine is currently wearing Gyeon MOHS so a spray of Wet Coat after wash and rinse will be all its getting.

I'll be using AG EGP with a coat of HD Wax (if i can be bothered). From then on it'll be topped with AG Express Wax. It's seen me through the last 3/4 winters without any problems so I've not felt the need to change it. Express Wax looks fantastic on both my cars, it really adds a nice deep gloss to the finish
