poorboys polish

I used at be a fan of tech wax till i found this , although i still rate meguiars stuff in general tho this stuff is loads easier to fetch off and can be used in direct sunlight without the smearing etc of meguiars and a few other brands-also leaves my car with a better flatter shine to it(u didnt used to get such a flat clear reflection looking down the side of the car with tech wax)in fact tried tech wax the other day as ive still got some left and actually werent that impressed anymore.
i now use poorboys polish with carnuba, their ex sealant,and their ex-p sealant well happy with them the last bottle of tech wax has been bought!!!! for more info this is where i get mine from http://www.motorgeek.co.uk/index.php...sort/2a/page/1

Planning to start saturday so will post up pics of the results. :wink:

Apparantly because I'm using the clay bar it means I have to reapply the wax/polish too so could take me a couple of days, but hopefully will be worth it 8)

cant understand that mate theyre all easy apart from the their proffessional polish which is basically t-cut just like a paint renovator which is a right pain-the ones to get are (all me secrets goin again here)poorboys polish with 100% carnuba,their ex and the ex-p sealant though to be honest their polish with carnubas good on its own.
http://www.motorgeek.co.uk/index.php/cPath/21_26thats the polish at the bottom,other products on nxt page. im just fussy about me finish on my scoobs so bought the ex and ex-p aswell(well worth it though)

Thanks for that uk dave,i will have to get some of the carnuba.
You are right about the pro polish,thats what i was using,although my paint does need a clean up,glad im doing it now,still got half the car to do,and my arm is killing me,like they say though,no pain no gain.
