    collinite is a wax. If the car needs polishing use something like Auto Glym super resin polish.

    Basically yes,
    Pre wash - foam or superspray)
    Wash car - sheepskin mitt,
    Rinse
    ... wash again if necessary
    Dry - Waffle Weave towel/Drying Towel
    Polish - AG SRP or Clearkote Moose, possibly even Lime Prime
    Wax - For protection for all the hardwork you have done above.

    YOu could add another section or two it, a layer of glaze before the wax would add depth.

    What colour is your car?

    BTW Dodo Juices are great waxes, I've got Supernatural on my car atm

    Indeed they are, I have Doublewax on my vxr and it's awesome.

    Once you've done a good detail on your car, when wash time comes, all you'll need to do it was, dry and QD and the car will be just a shiny again.

    I havent ever tried Doublewax, and probably wont ever but it certainly has good reviews.

    Yes mate. The beige pot is the hard wax, leave to cure for 20-30 mins. Leave the car for 1-24 hours (according to the pot) and then apply the soft. I can see why it's gotten the good reviews, awesome stuff. What's the Supernatural like to work with?

    Well I applied some by hand and its awful to work with by hand (I guess thats owing to it being a hard wax ) and the rest i applied by applicator. Its ok to work with by applicator, not the easiest though.

    All in all its good stuff.

    I was amazed at how easy the Doublewax was to work with. I buffed it off with a swissvax shagpile towel and it ame off really easy.
