I've got 2 of them (long story!), if you'd like to come 'round and fully polish both cars by way of "practising", I might let you take one away at a discounted rate :wink:

A "view" would just be nice from my sh1t hole of an office. That place over the road there, is that Merthyr's new Teeth-Whitening Clinic? I've heard great things about it.

Actually looks well that Dai! We still haven't had the detailing day we always go on about!

Bad news though. Super resin polish is an all in one product which contains paint cleaners, a very very light abrasive, some fillers and a slight sealant. Meguiars gold class is also an all in one product that contains cleaners, fillers and a slight sealent. The Meguiars gold class would have just stripped the super resin polish straight off!
