Going for a trip to take advantage of halfords 3 for 2 offer again, I got the bonnet clayed before you ask why it's taken so long the previous owner had the house repainted with the car too close! and a layer of SRP on and it looks a lot better just a shame about the chips in the paint!

The problem is i've used a lot of QD(Anyone else love the smell of that stuff?) spray and was wondering if anyone can recommend anything concentrated that I could use for lube that i'll find at halfords?

Also going to pickup some nice wax, was going to use the turtle stuff i've got then had to ask why use such expensive cleaners/polish on the car just to use cheap wax any recommendations would be a help :p

Could do with something in concentrated form as it's taking a lot to remove the white spots of paint used about half the bottle of QD that came with the kit I bought on just doing the bonnet, although i'm using sonus clay at the moment

megs orange is just slightly more aggresive than the sonus grey - but does leave some micro marring if you dont lube up enough.

my secret formula is 25% synthetic QD, 5% nxt shampoo, 5% super snow foam and 65% de-ionised water. :shh:

Damn! so thats the stuff people have been using to get that! i'll order myself some ASAP! :D

Can it just be used through the hose on the pressure washer or do you need the special attachment?

Got the NXT QD earlier, it's definately easier to use the clay with it and had to get the NXT Generation Tech Wax they didn't have the other one, but clayed the roof earlier got all the house paint off, SRP then waxed damn it's shiney now! :hyper:

Still some nasty scratches on the roof and worse on other parts of the car, it'll definitely need a respray at sometime :(
