    Okay so first time I've polished my civic and I think its come up a treat but used simoniz liquid polish. Not too bad of a finish but wondering if there's any good black polish anyone on here uses.

    Ok guys and girls. I am in the market for a DA Polisher and all the stuff needed to make my civic look good. I do not have a clue which to buy and the polish, waxes etc and how to put it all onto my car. The guy who used to polish my 406 coupe used to swear by mcguires gear. So i guess i will go...
  3. Cleaning
    Hi I'm just about to get a 1 year used 2013 Civic FK. The car will waxed/polished from the dealer when I receive it so I would like to think I don't need to do anything like that on the car for a while. But I was thinking since the car is almost new and all, what would be the best to use ...

    Morning people! Got my first "detail" on a car that isn't mine coming up this Sunday :) Was just wondering how long everyone leaves wax to cure for?

    Hi guys, Had my first proper chance to use all the products I've been collecting over the past few months. Decided on only doing the bonnet today as I really wouldn't have had time to do the whole thing (losing light and temperature and all that :rolleyes:) Process: 1. Pressure-wash down the...
  8. Cleaning
    Hi guys, Question for the lads that are right into detailing and actually charge for their services. How do you convince people to spend £100+ on cleaning their car? I only ask as one of my mates popped round last night and I was telling him I was going to start offering my services but it's...
