only problem is the final wax isnt a proper wax and dosent last!! I have replaced the fianl stage with gold class for better results...


oooo ooooo ooooooooooo

more info - i end up doing mine every 2 weeks  :huh:

2 weeks?!  :shocked: :huh:

a really decent few coats of sealant and wax every few months should be more like it!

would probably be more economical in the long run

Definitley try a different wax as the Megs doesn't have very good durability, many choices out there I use www.cleanyourcar.co.uk for most of my detailing stuff :)

most of the megs stuff is expensive weak and nasty crap in a glammed up bottle.

No Sweeping generalisations here!
Nothing wrong with Megs stuff. Have you tried any of their professional or bodyshop range or just the stuff in Halfords?


i use elite car care - they are great

as for Megs stuff... it is what got me started on the detailing... it might not be the absolute best but for those starting out it is ok and certainly a step up from fairy liquid and a dirty old sponge.

megs also do some nice widgety gadgets like their triple duty detail brush and the soft interior brush thingy, both of which I find very useful

how quick is a 'quick' detail? I think I get too involved when I am cleaning cars for others... most of the time they don't give a fcuk but I can't hand it back unless I am happy.

all i do is exterior,  wash then a 3 stage,  wheels with cleaner and tyres witht he old foam  and a quick wipe over with trim detailer

time always dependant on how many beers they are feeding me with or whether its getting done in works time

3- 4 hours is the average i suppose  :wink:

And me it's because you know a fellow detailer might look at it!
Or a paying detail might be lost :)
