good finishing polish
« on: 07 April 2008, 17:30 »
right i used to be a valeter, but working for a company we used to get everything in bulk and as such not realy get name branded stuff, it would come in a 5L bottle and just say finishing polish lol, i did get myself some when i left at a 5 finger discount rate (SHHHHH :rolleyes: ) but iv used it all up  :sad:

but what i want to know is what finishing polish would ppl recommend as when it comes to brand names i aint realy got a clue lol

i have a jet black mk2 golf gti, the paint work is only around 5 years old so all it needs is a good finish polish to make it glimmer.
