Talking Newbie from Manchester

Hi guys,

A newbie here from Manchester. I'm a keen amateur detailer. Always looking to improve my detailing skills so I'm open to advice from the more experienced and/or professional detailers on here. I'd like to learn how to machine polish, using which compound with which pad and the numerous combinations therein. I'm looking forward to chatting with you all very shortly. I currently own a VW CC in dark blue. I have a fair collection of detailing products, but I seem to have a fetish for waxes?? I've recently used BH Finis Wax on my car but I've since bought WOWO'S contact 121, CG Butter Wet Wax, Collinite Insulator Wax, Collinite 476S, Collinite No 915 Marque D'elegance, Megs Gold Class Carnauba plus, Soft99 King of Gloss and Soft99 Fusso Coat. I read a post earlier when one of the members said you won't have any money being a detailer, but you'll have loads of products you won't use. That's me already. Maybe I'll get a chance to use them when the weather books up. Anyway, can't wait to get started on here and getting some sound advice/tips from you guys.

Welcome along, and yes, let's hope the weather does buck up because I am in Manchester now, rain then fog yesterday and rain tomorrow. Never mind, I expect it so never disappointed

Haha, that's right. I think all wax developers should move here and test their water beading/sheeting. It's always raining!
