You seems to have bough a lot of products for your wheel there...

Give a list of exactly what you got bro...and whats with the Maoam  :tongue:

Left to Right:
Poorboys wheel cleaner - obviously for the wheels
Poorboys Super Swirl Remover (SSR1) - light swirl remover. (smells of bananas)
Poorboys EX-P - Sealant for after the swirl remover. (smells of coconut)
Valet Pro Dragons Breath - wheel cleaner rumoured very good, supposedly absolutely stinks (not smelt it yet the review I read said that)
Dodo Juice Slippy Refill (dilutes for up to 5 litres)
Dodo Juice Slippy dilute spray bottle. (for Claying)
Poorboys Natty's Paste Red Wax - For after the sealant.(Smells of strawberries)
Dodo Juice Natural Claybars x3 - Use with the Dodo Juice Slippy.
3M Automotive Tape - to stop the Maguiars G220 V2 from touching anything it shouldn't.
Festool Spot Sanding Pads 2000, 3000, 5000 grade - for sanding down touched up stone chips.
Dodo Juice 150mm Fin Pads Black (finishing), Green (Polishing) and Orange (Cutting)
Lake Country CCS Hand Polishing - Polishing Pad x3 - For the non-machine areas.

I also have on order a
Maguiars G220 V2 DA Machine Polisher
Maguiars 7" Finishing Pad
Maguiars 7" Polishing Pad
10 Microfibre cloths
1 Tyre Dressing applicator
1 Festool Spot Sanding device
Poorboys Wheel Sealant Wax

Fingers crossed it all arrives at the weekend and the Rain that's here today goes away, its ruining my nicely clay barred paint work.

Oh and the Maoam are the free sweets the detailers seem to throw in.

It's gonna be one sweet smelling (and looking) car.  Looking forward to seeing some pics up of your handy work :cool:

Well today I've removed my Gti rear valance and front bumper lip spoiler to get them painted gloss black.
On a reflex silver car I'm hoping it should look good.
