      2. ONR Wash - yeap.
      3. Bilt Hamber Finis Wax x 01 coat - what is this?

      All three are available from Ultimate Finish website

      ValetPro pH neutral Snowfoam is one type pf pre wash similar to what 3M guys uses...they use a pressure washer (which i don't have), I use through a pump sprayer. A snowfoam is a type of Traffic Film Remover or TFR's as they are popularly known. Other type of popular TFR is the Citrus pre washes which are non-foaming ones generally.

      See my car had not been washed for a month and had a lot of crap from trees, mud, rain and driving so i needed a stronger pre-wash than ONR thats why dug out my snowfoam...I like the ValetPro because its pH neutral that is wax / sealant safe and also good for nano coatings

      Bilt Hamber is a UK based company and they have some brilliant products...I have almost everything from their line which can be shipped internationally...

      Finish Wax is one of the very few carnauba waxes (not a sealant) which lasts longer than Collinite 845 / FkP 1000p ...has some filling capability and gives great gloss and flake pop...i probably wont need to wax my car for next six months

      AutoQD is just the name of their QD and is quite good, maybe at per with Zaino Z6...I used the QD because i overapplied the wax and it was pain to remove properlyand also to amp the shine a bit more

      P.S. Bilt Hamber also has a pH neutral shampoo which actually needs only 5 ml (a teaspoon) per 10 litres of water...superb concentration and cleans like a demon! This is my favourite non-foaming shampoo...good for all super sealants / nano coatings...looks literally like water, foams very less and while rinsing the suds / residue literally falls off by itself...

      nice...the tire gel really made a difference! Any feedback on that particular product like whether it is greasy to the touch, any runoff of black liquid in case of rain?

      And when are you going to do you new Linea?

      looking good...maybe next time you can ask them what products they are using? Did they also do a paint correction or just paint protection?

      The Simoniz gel is actually quite nice. It works both on the plastics & tyres. It's clear in colour, not black, so no black fluid running down, but it's a little greasy to touch. What I do is - I let it stay for some time & then rub off the excess using a dry cloth. I do this only for the dash though where I want to avoid the glare.

      Linea is due for a service, so I'll do her only after that.

      very nice! now waiting for your tire pics

      btw can you please list the product names which you used? it would be great to know...specially what of Menz did you use? you got a DA/ rotary?

      Also the blue Alto is looking really good! repaint or machine corrected or in that good condition ? A color charged wax / dark color specific wax or glaze can make it look even better.

      For the white Verna, if you want to really amp up the glossy shimmer, buy a bottle of acrylic based sealant, it makes white and light colors look unreal glossy...two which i can suggest are Poorboys EX-P sealant and Werkstat Acrylic Jet Trigger.

      Neither are available in India so will need to be imported but on white, acrylic sealants really work well.
