    Need some advice gents.

    I know what to buy detailing wise in my normal price range. E.g not too expensive. Since its my 40th soon I've got around ?100 from my in-laws to buy some good stuff!! What are my options? My only stipulation are that they are easy to use by hand Eg easy on easy off!! Waxes, sealants, polishes and wheel stuff. Not too bothered about interior stuff.

    Cheers

    Scotty

    Cheers mate. Like the look of the Maguire's Wax, reasonably priced as well. As you say everyone has favourites, some will be cheap and some expensive!

    Cheers gents. Think it will be a stock up on Maguires tyre gel, Maguires nxt wax, wheel cleaner and gold class shampoo. Oh and some Poorboys black hole and sealant. Plus microfibre cloths and applicator pads. No change I think!

    One question. Is Dodo purple haze better than black hole?

    Another thing, do you use or have you used clay bar before ? Well worth the effort on that one.
    I've got and use clay bar and quick detailed spray. Cheers. Not tried backlight but heard its better than black hole. Decisions decisions!!

    Cheers mate. Will give it a go. Think I will have a combination attack of dark coloured waxes and sealants!

    Cheers James. Don't know why but after washing I always seem to be left with some haze on paintwork so then apply more polish, wax, glaze to take it away. What am I doing wrong??

    Cheers. Seems I've been wasting wax and sealant when I don't really need to. Will give the spray ago first and see what results I get! Cheers to both of you!
