OK can't do it i'm not saying they are the best but i use:

AG Shampoo
Bilt hamber snow foam
Bilt hamber autowheel -for wheels
Farcela G3 clay mit
Bilt hamber clay bar Reg to Soft
Poor boys black hole glaze on occasion
Autosmart Tardis Tar remover
BH Korrosol fall out remover
Fusso Coat Dark cars for wax
Meg Tyre gel - for tyres, wheel arches and rubber bits
Gtechnique C4 for external plastic trims
For interim cleans i finish with either Polar seal or Meg ultimate QD

For machine polishing Nano tech SST is great recommended to me by another member i love it you feel like you work it for ages without have to spray the pads:

Super Gloss Polish 500ml For Dark Coloured Gel-Coat or Paint [295] - £16.99 : Nanotech SST Ltd

Coupled with a Green (cut) and Blue (finish) Hex pads giving the car a machine polish is easy.

This weekend SWMBO has granted me time to do a paint correction this weekend and i'm going to try out Wowo's crystal sealant and contact 121 wax to finish recommended by Lee.

I was planning to apply a ceramic coating but i haven't got the time and the workspace i was going to use is unavailable at the moment.

Here's how the above worked out for me:

Wheel arches and MOP ... | Detailing

Well it is good stuff,the tyre shine is just how I like it a matt finish,the snow foam does the job, the dashboard cleaner is not to in your face,I have not used the leather cleaner yet I have a area on the cream leather that is a little grimy on the door card ,I also have the glass cleaner that is very good no smears, I have used this on the car no problems I suspect it has some coating on the paint finish,I have zero stone chips,and it does not seem to benefit from waxing tried it and it made no difference to the shine /finsih,the car looks its best in the evening light then it sort of glows.:D

The pound shop can have some little gems in there it's just a bit hit and miss, the spray wax which seems to have vanished from the shelves i used for years was great for topping up a coating or doing a quick job on a friends car.

I even find some California scents under seat air fresheners in there on occasion and shamefully i'm the one that empties the shelf when they have them ;)

At my age and health, car cleaning involves the Waves franchise at Tesco Tenterden (but I will not use the Waves franchise at Tesco Ashford!), who only use AG products and who I have carefully vetted/watched and am now confident to let them wash and clean both my cars. My days of clay, decontamination, DA paint correction and polishing, wax etc are history! I really should sell the collection of machine, pads and unguents I have in my garage and will never again use!
