    shiney astra :)

    Products used:
    Autoglym Body Shampoo Conditioner
    Autoglym Super Resin Polish
    DoDo Juice Blue Velvet Hard Wax
    Autoglym Tyre Dressing
    Autoglym Alloy Wheel Sealant

    Normally I'd snowfoam it first too but hose frozen solid atm so no pressure washer.

    Given up with the AutoGlym tyre stuff myself - needs re-applied too often. Looks good though

    nry, I tend to agree with you I'm just using up what I have left in the bottle. What would you recommend as an alternative?

    The other thing I'd like to know is, the dodo juice mention's layering. How many layers should I do? quite frankly my arm is killing me already without having to put more wax on

    Meg's Endurance Tyre Gel is the best you can buy IMO.

    You can progressively build up the layers over a number of weeks. Over the course of 10 weeks I built up 25 layers of wax on the VXR.

    Top marks though mate, looks fantastic. Told you you'd be please with the Dodo.

    yes very please with it and it wasn't as hard to apply as I thought. I struggle with liquid waxes because I am prone to over applying them and having to spend 2 hours trying to buf it off lol.

    How many layers off DoDo would you recommend? only got 1 on atm.

    Once I run out of the Autoglym tyre dressing i'll pick up some Meg's. Might as well use up what I've got first.
