Hi Simon
What polish/wax does Ben use? Certainly looks good.

Looking forward to going home and seeing my car looking spick and span and shiny....

Andy

I guess I'll wade in and answer this for Simon!

I generally use Meguiar's products as I cut my teeth with them and still think they offer the best results available for the money. However I will use anything that performs if I like it.

Simon's 996 above was prepared (after washing and claying) with Poorboy's SSR2.5 (to remove swirls), then Meguiar's #80 Speed Glaze (a finer polish to enhance gloss), Clearkote Red Moose Machine Glaze (to increase gloss some more and add some wetness), then sealed with Poorboy's EX with Carnauba Sealant before being waxed with Pinnacle Souveran Paste Wax.

As for the Zymol/Swissol debate - well - it's being going on for years and Zymol have some very die hard fans. I think the results their products create are excellent, however, equally impressive results can be obtained for much less money IMO.

Any other recommendations for detailers. I have used Miracle in the past, but always willing to try someone new.

Had it Zymoled for St. Trop Boshly, mine will be au naturel or something like that... <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

Off to pick mine up from RTCC tomorrow, can't wait. I hope that they have washed and polished it <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Can you get Ben to post his coordinates so that we can contact him for his services. I note that he uses Meguiars, how does he think that this compares with Zymol <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

I need my car detailed before it goes on sale (soon), but it appears that Ben has succumbed to a serious case of the lurgy? I hope it's nothing too serious, can you please check him <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> for us before you disappear on holiday. Thanks.

Cheers
Brian
