Hi again guys.
Cheers for info on Collants that I got.
Now i would like to pick your brains on car polish.
My crewman is painted in glorious black and a few steps back it looks great.
Up close there is a lot of fine swirls to some mild scratches.
I took to it yesterday with meguiars ultimate and although I got a shine the result was not really great.
I have used of all things an old bottle of selleys cut and polish on my vs and that was pretty good.
Do you have any recommedations on what to use?
Cheers,
Shane.

Which meguiars ultimate product did you use?? Need more info as there is an ultimate compound, polish and wax. Out of those three, the only one that will actually remove the swirls by hand is the ultimate compound, the UP is more like a glaze to follow up the compound and has very little to no cut by hand.


I will say this though, I would give up trying to remove swirls by hand, you will need a machine to do the job properly. Also, whilst the ultimate compound and ultimate polish are very good products, I would be looking into something else for a wax, do a search on duragloss or collinite 845.

Thanks for replies and links guys.
Yeah I used the Meguiars Ultimate polish.I have since seen the Ultimate Compound which obviously cuts a bit more.
So WB57,you dont think the Meguiars wax is that good?
Cheers.

For good swirl removal I use a rotary and ultimate compound

Don't get me wrong, I used a few of their waxes and love the way they look. I have an old tin of their #26 wax from the professional line I would put up against any high-end wax for looks. I also cant live without Ultimate Quik Wax after every 2nd wash, that stuff is awesome.

But for a daily driver I prefer something a bit more durable, I have been using collinite 845, its great.
