I use Bowden's products.
Plus a sealer/shine finish of Afterglow or Fully Slick.
I’ve got some really good results from Dodojuice. They have a few different waxes to use depending on the colour of your car.
I use the lazy wax + fully slick on a dark colour (regal peacock). Really brings out the shine and lasts about 6 months of dust and crap before it starts to lose the water repellent properties.
Wash and polished with Fully Slick today
You guys should check out some quality Ceramic Coatings. Usually last a few years and provide a proper glass like finish which lasts for much longer than any wax i've ever used.
CQuartz UK Edition 3.0 ($90) or Concours NOVA EVO ($180) seems to be the best ones out at the moment.
Hi all, + 1 for NOVA EVO, had it applied about 6 months ago after getting detail with paint correction, car very easy to wash and maintain, the finish is like a mirror
I'm gonna bring this back up as they are just realising some new(ish) products.
Bowdens have the new Happy Ending
Meguiars have Hybrid Ceramic Wax
My question is I have clay bar rubbed my car, applied Autoglum polish then used Mothers Carnauba Wax, the one that comes in the tin not the bottle.
So is it a waster of time and money to apply these two products with what I have already done or will they protect and enhance the paint work further?
Would it be good to apply both products or are they actually the same product, as in they do they same job? And would using both would just be a waste of time and money?
Wow. I can see your neighbours have dropped a 5 cent piece on their driveway
I like Meguires Ultimate liquid wax. Goes over the entire car with a random orbital, minus the windscreen, without any white residue. To easy. It also brings up the exterior textured dark plastics better than greasy type leather/vinyl sprays and stays embedded in the trim for longer.
What’s the fascination with Meguiars?
I always thought it was cheap entry level and sometimes nasty stuff that offers a short term fix aimed at the masses from a company who has an enormous marketing budget to saturate their name into the heads of the unsuspecting A to B drivers who really don’t care and that car enthusiast’s knew better and go in search of products that actually protect their vehicles.
I find Meguiars products great bang for buck products that go on easy, come off easy and protect for a reasonable amount of time.
For the time input, I like their range. And I’ve been at the opposite end spending over three days correcting paint on one of my cars years ago. Two hours I can wash, clay and seal a whole car.
I think it's alright.
It's decent at least and at a good price point.
I wonder the same about all the who ha about autoglym. Never tried it though.
Bowdens seem to have a good rep but they seem to double up on products. Boss gloss, fully slick, lazy wax, clean detail which one do I finish with. Same with their waxes, polishes, carwash.a bit too confusing for me.
I have their leather care, leather love and tyre shine. All work fantastic
Bowdens products work well
One panel at a time starting with
2. Paint Cleanse and Restore,
3. Carnauba Body Wax or lazy wax,
4. Finish of with Fully slick its a sealer
Delighted with the end result
I know I should have but I was stuffed by then.
I'm getting old.
It takes me 3 hours just to wash mine. Hence it doesn't get washed very often.
Once a year
I guess it depends on what you call washing a car. Every month or so, I do an open door car wash (where the door jambs and door surronds get washed, as well as the engine bay and around the boot lid, under the wheel arches, petrol flap etc).
So when it comes to claying and sealing, I don't have much long term crap to remove as part of the process.
Plus I've worked in automotive pre delivery (brand new) and prepping second hand cars for sale in a car yard, so got taught some tricks over how much a pressure washer can be used on a car. Not that I use one inside my own cars ever.
I meant which ones, do you have a pic? as they looked clean enough to me
I used a pressure washer the other week, it was super strong but used the most diffuse nozzle and fairly angled at about a 600mm away. didnt get the sap or bugs off which hopefully meant it wasnt too strong. Actually did it first without the gurney on just water pressure with a decent nozzle which was ok.
