    What cleaning products do the Bus crew use?

    Just been reading the detailing section on here and Mig and the results make me want to go and clean the Bus right now. Not sure 9:25pm would be very good time though.
    I used to clean the cars most weekends but now I have a family its difficult to spare the few hours I like to do the job right. But the Bus needs a proper indepth clean.

    What cleaning products do you all use any recommendations? My cleaning kit needs updating.

    Couple of things I would like, a 'clay' and seeing as its fathers day soon a pressure washer with a SNOW FOAM lance.

    BTW drew your Bus looked stunning.

    Ooh god! Now you're asking

    Autoglym shampoo
    Megs Smooth Surface clay kit (not used every time tho!)
    Autoglym SRP
    Autoglym EGP
    Autoglym Fast Glass
    Collinite 476s
    Turtlewax Black In A Flash for plastics / rubbers
    Simoniz or Turtlewax tyre shine

    At PVS, I bought some Einszett polish, wax, and trim/interior spray off our very own Keif... which I'm looking forward to using as soon as the opportunity arises

    cheers, gotta say though it was my first go at collonite last tuesday and when I literally rinsed it off on saturday for the show the dirt just fell off...

    That's after just one coat...

    Mine needs a clay though and then another good polish seal and wax...
    2 or 3 coats next time...

    That'd be great cheers... I'll bring the rest of my kit and give it a good wax etc too.

    Thanks very much

    I noticed a load of what can only be described as tiny black bits of shit all over the bonnet when I polished it, tar, bug, sap remover wouldn't touch it...

    It'll be great to see what it looks like after a clay...

    MM: I've got plenty of colly if you want to use it ( didn't see it in your kit )
