It's still full of swirls but it wasn't my intention in removing them, just cleaned it thoroughly inside and out applied a glaze and a spray sealant for now.

Kudos tackling that

Helped my GF's sisters boyfriend scrub up his car, not bad for a little nugget, I bought him a demon shine kit for Christmas and used it here (minus the sponge of course) and finished with megs ULW I need to find a good spray sealent as I can't keep waxing everyone's cars! Any recommendations?

Cracking turn around on the Corsa...although I’d be hunting for a hub cap for it

Bouncers Bead Juice is an excellent performing spray sealant...that and one of the QD’s should keep it shining for longer

Great job on the Corsa - looks a different car now

With regards to spray sealants, I’ve used DetailedOnline nano sealant and their Si02 spray and been very pleased with both, both last a decent time and give a lively finish...

AutoGlanz Prism is very nice to use, very quick and easy to apply / remove.

Obviously Sonax BSD - very nice to use if either on wet car as a drying aid or with a damp cloth to apply.

AG Aqua wax - very nice, also works well with BSD as a 50/50 mix...

Turtle wax hybrid wax and the dry and shine are worth a look at

Something slightly different today.

Did a brutal ride round via humber bridge in the rain and wind and muddy ****ty roads, 115 miles of em, and so the winter steed needed a good wash.

Pre foam with surfed hd and rinse, chain degreased, washed with 1900:1 and then given a few sprits of dry n shine.

Before, during pre foam, after and a close up of the flake which looks great if the sun ever comes out

Thanks for the recommendations!

I'm also looking at

Meguiars hybrid ceramic

Gyeon wet coat

Autofinesse aqua

Turtle wax hydrophobic sealent wax which is dirt cheap!

Gave my Merc a very thorough interior clean which was long overdue! Need to keep on top of it going forward, maybe once per month as 2-3 hrs cleaning a manky interior really is no fun.
