    Borrow my Poorboys if ya want to see what you think of it. Very easy to apply and buff off, no powder. Only problem is it doesn't last very long, 3-4weeks max really.

    Stick a couple of layers on though and will last a bit longer.

    Yeah i'll be buying some more soon, either going for chem guys Pete's 53, or a Dodo Juice (most likely blue velvet)

    Or there is always Collinite mate, fairly cheap and gets good reviews, just doesn't appeal to me for some reason

    Have you ever tried claying your car before ? i found that after claying (meguiars smooth surface clay kit) Polishing ( Auto glym super resin polish) & waxing (collinie 476s) my car looks spot on, I personally couldnt fault the ag srp, & the collinite wax is very good & very durable, these 3 products are exellent value for money imo & would definatly recommend them.

    These are all waxes. Not polishes.
    Please see this post: here

    Polishing refers to using an abrasive to basically remove a percentage of laquer/paint. All polish is abrasive.
    Fillers will attempt to fill any scrath (whether a deep scratech or swirl). But after using fillers you must put protection over the top.
    Wax refers to the product that is put on to protect the paint.

    With SRP I feel the instructions arent great, the product should be worked into the paint to get the benefit from the abrasives and then another layer should be sed to get the best from the fillers.
    But on the instructions they say to rub onto paint and leave to haze or something, thus only benefiting from the fillers.


    If your wanting a cheap wax there is a group buy im trying to sort. The collinite is likely to be about £12, probably slightly over £20 for the dodo but it is a superb wax and will fight with the likes of Swissvax etc
