    Question Detailing

    Dont really know much about this:

    Where is the best place to go and buy clay, polish wax etc. and which ones should I buy? On a tight budget at the moment so dont want anything too fancy :-P

    I bought all my stuff at Halfrauds when they had a 3 for 2 on car cleaning stuff.

    When the offer isn't on, don't bother going there, they're just too damn expensive!

    Brands to go for IMO are: Poorboys, Chemical Guys, MeGuiar's and Autoglym.

    Make sure to check this forum: http://www.astraownersclub.com/vb/fo...play.php?f=169 and this particular how to: 'How To'..... Detail Your Car

    Get yourself a Meguiars smooth surface clay kit, Autoglym super resin polish & a good wax such as Collinite 476s & you cant go wrong, Oh & get a lambswool wash mitt too, Avoid using a sponge.

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