Blackfire Midnight Sun Wax

Just found a full size tub for £48 delivered, did I buy it, yes I did, doesn't get mentioned often but a very nice wax indeed.

This, Nebula, Fuzion and Double Speed waxes would do me for my wax collection.

I am seriously thinking that the way forward is full decontamination, clay, a nice finishing polish via machine twice a year, the occasional use of a pre wax cleanser and just owning a few really nice waxes that you are happy to use time and time again.

I have been there a long time, I have just what I like now. IMO, detailing is about looking after your car and getting the look you want and others admire. It is great learning how to do that but when you have a good level of knowledge you can enjoy the hobby and watch all the fun. You can still carry on learning from tips but duplicate products are rarely going to make any difference. Once that is realised the constant marketing will fade and perhaps best technique will be more important than which is best wax.

Agree - been doing that the last few years and last weekend did my spring detail to see me through the summer. I have found that I usually dont even need a final polish, and a good cleaner or AIO, like Poli Seal or DG501 in winter, is all that required for 90% of the car as a clean up.

Trouble is you never burn through all the stuff you have in the cupboards doing this!
