After advice received here last week I spent Saturday repolishing my vehicle. I used Macguires 3 stage clean, polish and seal system. Although only 12 mths old and regularly polished and cleaned I was amazed at the difference when I finished.

You can notice the difference after using the cleaner as before if you ran a cloth over the surface it felt sort of smooth and the after the cleaner it was real smooth.

The scratches are all gone, the whole car looks real smick.

Now I just got to get motivated to do the wifes car.

I remember your Post mate and offerred that advice re the 3 part crystal system.

Glad to hear it all went well.

I did warn you that you wouldnt just stop at the scratches..........lol.

Also just another bit of advice............make certain u always use there car wash product that matches the stuff u used...........that way u should be able to get many many months from the one polish.

Other types of wash simply remove all your hard work so its well worth the extra dollars.

Cheers mate.

Hmmm i'm not convinced, maybe you could show me on my jack how good it is, wink wink / nudge nudge..

BTW they also make an excellent vinyl / leather cleaner , looks like milk and leaves the interior looking brand new. awesome stuff, no silicone or slimy crud left anywhere.

Tell you what, im feeling generous..........in return for the year or so I need your car, I will not only leave it looking smick but ............wait for it...............will also pay the $300 to Alan to ensure you get the inside done as well.

Now thats a fair deal if ever I heard one.........lol.

Oh one thing though..........I will need to hire a sealed garage with climate control air con for my Jack for the year or so while i have yours..........naturally you wont mind covering that small expense...........lol.

Lets face it, it wouldnt be fair to let mine deteriorate while Im caring for yours......haha.

Mine is a 84 model in great shape but still requires plenty of TLC to keep it that way.

From any auto accessory store, i got mine from Supercheap, but i have seen it at others. Be Warned though it aint cheap. But the bottles should last 2-3 complete cleans & polishes though.
