Anyone know where is the best place to get rally decals from. I'm after the side swoosh in the green ( like the day glow).

My second question is, what washing polishing/ wax routine does everyone do, their are that many products I had a basket up to 150 with mits, polish,wax detailers, clay bars etc.

Cant help with the decals mate,polish/waxing etc-depends how far you want to go really-you can get really daft with it-personally i hate claying although it dont want doing that often anyway to be fair.

If i were starting from scratch with a car i`d not had long would go like this-

T-cut/metallic t-cut depending on colour obviously
(still use once a yr after winter)

polish and plenty of it for the first few months

sealant(poorboys EX) love it.- by this time car will already be pretty mint.

I do use a glaze now and again but only about once every 3months

then wax-up to you which though i have tried a few-P21s concours carnauba wax for no dust and a good shine from a quick and easy job/collinite 915 for about the best shine ive had from a wax ever.

If youre just after a regular regime i tend to just alternate between wax and polish mainly to increase the shine and prevent a large wax build up.

Can recommend various products if needed

here`s what i use.

cobra microfibre sponge

meguiars shampoo plus 14.95-for a gallon-bargain (and with this you do only need a couple of capfulls per bucket)

autoglym aqua-dry synthetic chamois

poorboys polish with 100% carnauba

poorboys EX sealant

Meguiars showcar glaze

would recommend any of these 3 waxes below-(although ive tried allsorts)

P21s concours carnauba wax/mothers california gold pure canauba wax paste/collinite 915-(gives best shine out of all these)

If youre after a good value wax chemical guys XXX hardcore paste wax takes some beating for 12.50

any other Q`s ask in car care mate about waxes/polishing etc before i get moaned at for long posts again.

Hope that helps, if it dont your wrong pmsl im only joking any questions ask but remember i aint a detailer though you may be able to contact tim at cleanyourcar.co.uk through the car care section-Even if it does look like i run car care.........i dont its just that few others post there.
