  • Best way to get good finish?

    1. Quick rinse to get off surface dirt
    2. Wash with sheepskin mitt with quality soap(autoglym)
    3. Chamois car
    4. Clay car (Meguiars Smooth Surface Clay Kit) with Dodo Juice Born Slippy Lube
    5. Polish with autoglym SRP
    6. Wax with Dodo Juice Purple Haze PRO Kit

    Is this right? Feedback would be fantastic, cheers

    Sounds OK to me but i would soap the car first and leave it for a few mins to soften the dirt then rinse it off

          2. Wash with sheepskin mitt with quality soap(autoglym)
          3. Rinse
          4. clay the car
          5. Wash
          6. Rinse
          7. Chamois car - Dont use a chamois, use a drying towel, chamois are very rough on the paintwork
          8. Polish with autoglym SRP
          9. Pre-wax clenser like Dodo Juice Lime Prime or Lime Prime Lite
          10. Wax with Dodo Juice Purple Haze PRO Kit

                You can clay whilst wet, the water also acts as a lube for the clay
