Looks very smart Dr Mike :smiley:

Thanks.  The bodywork and windows felt different as I was drying the car, as though the paint was more highly polished.  Hard to describe, but there's definitely a slick coating on the bodywork now.  I bought some Gyeon "Wet Coat" a few weeks ago, but haven't used it yet.  My objective is to make the paintwork as water repellent as possible to make winter cleaning easier.

With apologies for quoting myself, I've been suffering from some festive diseases for the last week or so, but by Thursday I felt that I really should give the car a wash.  It may have been wishful thinking, or something, but it really does seem easier to wash it using the Gyeon shampoo.  I'm a convert.

I`m in the market for a new shampoo.

I`m interested in Gyeon as used by Dr Mike but has anyone tried CarPro Reset?

I always used to use the Zymol shampoo, but now use Auto Finesse lather. I find it rinses off well and leavs a good finish.

I had all but run out of my favourite Autoglym shampoo, and with the AG van not due at my mates garage for a couple of weeks, I thought I'd try Wo-Wo High Foam Shampoo. Lets just say I'm glad I only bought the 500ml bottle. My stocks are now replenished with another 25 litre drum of AG.  :smiley:
