Hi there dude... Get some good protection applied by means of a wax or sealant to protect your paintwork otherwise all your effort polishing will be in vain as it will just wash off over the next few weeks

Supra Guard with a doubt, it is sadly one of the biggest wastes of money anyone can purchase at the dealerships. Its a money making machine.

Get yourself some Collinite 915 Marque D'Elegance if you don't want to spend much money. The durability is superb...

I just noticed left some wax on plastic in last picture lol I was in a rush to get it done before it rained. I have to go out tomorrow and give quick wipe. I noticed when it rained it water left droplets. I polished car 3 times since I got it in Sept 2010 and wash it every week
