Help with final step.

Well, thanks to you lot my new cleaning stash is looking a lot healthier:

Vistara snow foam.
Simoniz Shampoo.
Simon QD (looking to change this).
BH clay bar (soft).
ODK Cabin Interior Dresser.
BH wheel cleaner. Got Angel Bilberry too.
Raceglaze Nano wheel sealant.

Just need a good polish/wax combo to finish off my Estoril Blue, fancy a really deep/wet look, any suggestions???
I've seen AF tripple polish, then Dodo Supernatural Hybrid Wax suggested??

if it has metallic flake then af tripple will mute it slightly.
stick 2 layers of prima amigo on it that will make it have some depth and top with a nice wax

Are you doing all work by hand or machine polishing ? as OverKill mentioned, you could just use paint cleanser like Prima Amigo or Dodo Juice Lime prime, both very good gloss enhancers, just an alternative to a dedicated polish if your doing by hand

I would suggest paint cleaner/cleanser (both same thing just some described differently) you'll have clay'd your paint leaving it lovely and smooth but clay can't clean the tiny pores in the paint, something as simple as this can be the difference between you being happy and disappointed at the end of your cleaning, so you use paint cleaner as a non aggressive version of polishing, and it will leave same type of gloss as polish does, Bilt Hamber cleanser fluid seems to be a lot of peoples fave at the min, so that could be worth a look at, good luck Shins
