Polish Shootout

Hi Folks

I am looking for something to use on my 8M6 coloured Toyota Celica prior to waxing with some Soft99 product...

Generally Japanese paints are on the softer side from reading so I will be just going my hand with a microfiber pad as I dont have a machine yet (early days on this journey)

Anyway I was looking at three Bilt Hamber Cleanser Polish,Autoglym SRP or Basics Prep Polish from the lads at Dodo Juice...I was particularly looking for some feedback on the latter if possible...

Thanks

BH is very good with easy on/off
R222 is another which gets many votes on here
M&K Pure is great but quite expensive

If you are looking at the fusso dark mirror wax/sealant my understanding is that it needs to be applied to bare paint, i.e. if you did polish the car you need to wipe down with panel wipe / IPA before applying the fusso.

Therefore, any polish you use would be removed, so in the case of SRP and the like, its probably a waste of time to polish.

Note, that there are a number of soft99 products, I'm not sure if they all have the same requirment: https://www.detailingworld.co.uk/for...d.php?t=411256

Have a look at Anglewax Perfect Polish. It's a pre wax cleaner with micro-abrasives and can be used by hand or machine.
The other one I have used successfully is Dodo Juice Lime Prime it's a joy to use and gives really good results

Thanks,will check out the Angelwax..I had initially looked at the Lime Prime,however Dom from Dodo said the Prep Polish would be more suitable for the softer Japanese paint!
