meguairs restorer its a 2 stage aplication. Less course than T-cut etc. Then as a wax collinte paste or do do wax. Will give long last shine & uv protect .

like lupolo said last long time. Do-do has carnauba wax. Its a natural product. They give a extra shine plus help cover swirls.

cool. was wondering how u gauge the depth on the paint,is there a special tool? just curious is all,ive seen some detailing threads where the car has been scratched to fook by a car wash or something and the end results look beautiful!

just been nosing thru a few of the detail threads on e38 and they do produce some amazing work! the results they can get when they do a car covered in swirls is superb! only wondered bout the paint depth as u can burn the laquer off quite easy id imagine with the polishing machine! u got any spare rado bonnets,wrong place to ask but hey ho! lol

got some autoglym paint restorer today so hopefully give it the once over,then turtlewax i think,i prefer it to alot of others as it comes off easier! also the black colour magic to go over the bonnet with,hopefully will sort any dullness for the time being and a bit of protection from all this sunshine!!lol
