I have a couple of days off work this week and I am thinking about trying to give my IS250 some shine It's a dark blue colour - Windsor Blue - and if I wash and dry the car it doesn't look too bad - from a distance. Up close, you can see that the paintwork hasn't had the best of care over the years with a few small scratches and lots and lots of swirl marks as well as a few bird-poo etchings Given I've left this until the last minute, I will need to buy any supplies locally and this means probably from Halfords. At least I will be able to make use of my discount card :) So, I'm thinking wash as usual but then to move on to tar and iron removal, followed by claying (I have a G3 clay mitt which I've not used yet) My question(s) are Will dragon's breath (or similar) wheel cleaners work on paintwork for iron removal? As I will need to mask paintwork defects - is Autoglym Ultra Deep Shine Car Polish worth the extra over Autoglym SRP? Will this mask the bird-poo etchings as well? Would/Should I then need to use a wax product on top? Given that Halfords has a limited range what would you recommend with ease of use probably the most important factor. Finally, the horizontal black trim on the doors is tarnished - what can I do about this? thanks for any help and advice .
I have just joined Loc as I have just bought a velvet Black GS 300h F Sport which I hope to pick up in a couple of weeks.Can anyone recommend good cleaning products and advise me on how to keep it looking highly polish and as good as new please.
Hi all, Do any of you tend to use Japanese products? I was out there 2 months ago and brought back 'Yasashii' and 'Fusso' shampoos and waxes. I'm all out now and looking to source some more. I can find Fusso online, and Yasashii Shampoo but not Yasashii Wax. http://www.yasashii-uk.com seem to supply the custom shampoo that was the big craze out there when i went - but i'm looking for their carnauba waxes. Anyone have any ideas?
