Say I have a brand new (pretty much) car. I never usually had a car worthy of washing and polishing myself before so its allways just gone to the kosovans or through the car wash before. However now I have a nice car and feel the urge to wash it myself. Whats the best was to protect it and keep it clean and looking good. I have the full Mer range which i got cheap from the Ideal home exhibition (bargain at £30). Also i'd like to know some places that might be an idea to pay particular attention to when cleaning to keep the car bodywork healthy for the umost period of time. I know i need to ensure I clean the dirt from isndie the arches regularly and whatnot, but what else? If anybody could give me a little step to step guide on howto use my polish properly I would be veryu grateful :-P
