    Nice little kit there...

    I would definetly add a couple of products namely 3m 80348 extra fine compound and ultrafina for final polishing because alot of products suffer in these conditions especially Menzerna it does not like the cold at all and i have stopped using it from nov - march now.. These 2 products will ensure that you can continue detailing as they have a very good reception to damp air unlike most..

    Also on another note citrus snow foam im sure you are aware is twice the strength of snow foam and will undoubtedly strip wax for sure.... I use this in a spray container to clean lower halves with and arches so if your going to use it id get advice because im sure its only the tinyiest amount that wont strip wax..

    Another thing that i'll add from personal experience: make sure you wear gloves when using the Petes 53 - I didn't and it dried the skin out on my hand and became quite irritated for a few days.
    That may just have been me personally but i've used loads of other waxes and never had a problem...!

    Nice selection of bits ordered there though! I dropped £160+ in to CYC's store last night just topping up my collection LOL.

    I must admit ive never had a problem with petes but gloves wont cut it for me at all because 1 id be concerned about soft clearcoats marking an also there would be no body warmth to fuse the wax on the panel which is the whole point of hand waxing..

    I think he might have been using an applicator Marc and it soaked through, poss too much on the pad?

    I'll definately back up menz being a pain. The slightlest hint of cold or moisture and it doesn't want to work.
