I wanted to get a few coats of wax on the car for protection as it the first time its been waxed since i got it in Sept.

1. Meguiars gold class wash
2. Meguiars paint pre cleaner
3. Autoglym wheel cleaner
4. Autoglym tyre dressing
5. Autoglym fast glass
6. Autoglym HD wax 2x coats

The bloke next door works for autoglym so i get all my product either free or cost price.

You can't go wrong with AG products, I use to use the AGHDW & it was very good IMO.

It was sunny but 3 degrees so only started to feel cold after 2hrs but the buffing off of the was kept me warm. Hopefully the wax will give me a few weeks of protection
