    Clay - Sonus Grey will take a lot of contaminants out, but is tricky to work with.
    Polish - SRP won't have the desired effect, I'd use Poorboy's SSR2.5
    Pad - Sonus DAS Swirlbuster
    Wax - Pete's 53 or Natty's Red for Gloss, Collinite 476s for extra protection.

    All can be bought from Tim @ www.cleanyourcar.co.uk with very fast delivery
    Gaz

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring
