Hey everyone I've picked up a new MG6 Magnette and would like some advice on protecting it.



I've been around and have a fair amount of kit. I've got plenty of Collonite 476 around lots of megs kit including a G220 ect. So what am I asking for? I've had a family recently and have not had time to detail anything or keep up to date on whats going on in the world of detail.

Some people say I shouldn't seal it as the paint needs to breath and settle?

I've had it Guard X'd as a freeby I'm guessing it's nothing more than a sealant?

To be honest I want to get it through the winter with minimal work and give it a good going at in the summer.

Also how hard is the paint on the new MG's? Longbridge has had a £5million refit and I don't know how hard the laquer will actually be.

Thanks in advanced.

You have a young family and understandably don't want to commit too much time to your new car, just drive and enjoy through this winter and when the weather warms up give it the full Monty.:thumb:

Yeah they do a BTCC edition a hatchback GT with badges and decals celebrating their success. The Magnette is a saloon version which I have brought. Got to say I love the way it drives, plenty of poke with comfort whilst cruising and sticks like it's on rails I'm assured. It's only just covered 136 miles and it got christened by the local gritter last night :censored::censored::censored::censored:

Just want to make sure it's protected as best as I can make it.

I live just off Penine Way. How about you?

So I'm just wondering then what would be best for my pride and joy?

Leave it over winter then go for it? Shoild I do anything or wait for the paint to settle? How hard is paint?
