Quick wash and shine

Post by Colt » Sat Apr 10, 2021 1:47 pm

Gardening all completed so spent a couple of hours this morning pampering my ride. Used turtle wax quick shine for the finish. The alloys could be better but it looked like rain so had to hurry.

How do you find the Turtle wax quick shine to use? I've used waxes that are really hard work to polish off and have given up after doing a couple of panels! :oops:

Couple of soft cloths then spray a little on 1 panel at a time. It’s easier to shine than a lot I’ve used in the past but I’m getting old so know what you mean about getting off some waxes. Thanks just hope the rain holds off for a bit to enjoy 👍

Thanks Colt, will give it a go and see if it's easy enough for a less than enthusiastic car polisher like myself. ;)
