    What to use when cleaning my car

    Last year i was lucky enough to get VXRmarc to carry out a full paint work correction on the cab.

    Well since then, apart from cleaning with Meguirs gold class shampoo I have applied nothing to the paint.

    So where do i start? there is starting to be a build up of small bits that do not come off with just shampoo!

    So would it be

    wash
    clay
    polish

    and then something like this

    Cheers in advance for any help

    Thats spot on,

    Wash
    Clay
    Wash again
    polish
    then wax, orange crush should do nicely.

    Lee, personally mate, I would go so far as to say not to clay it as you could take the wax that marc put on there last year off (And knowing what he used - I'd want to keep it on the car).

    I'd just wash and wax. Will bring it up nicely again. Then all you'll need to do is wash it and go over it with a quick detailer such as Last Touch.

    it may be worth getting marc to do a maintenance detail on it again to top off what you have on there.

    Hey dude..... Id invest in a mid range wax without colouration in it and simply wash it and wax.. Something like supernatural or lusso oro.

    This will be fine to protect once a month on that colour..
