I decided to get into this so bought some products today from Halfords and had a go for the first time in years. I got the following bits: Autoglym Bodywork Shampoo Autoglym Super Resin Polish Autoglym Fast Glass Wonderwheels Super Alloy wheel cleaner 2 x drying towels 5 x microfibre cloths 2 x Meguiars Even Coat polish pads It seemed to go quite well when doing it but I didn't realise just how bad the paintwork was on this car. I've only had it a couple of months and am a little disappointed I didn't see all of it. There are quite a few small marks on the bonnet and multiple tiny rust spots. I was in need of a car urgently though as the old one was close to dying and the MOT ran out a couple of days later. Regardless of that, I think it went well for my first attempt. I just want to pick up something to protect/seal my alloys now. I've seen the Poorboys Wheel Sealant mentioned here but is it worth it for the basic cleaning that I'm doing?
