Cheers mr Jassey it's not long now!
edit..............
Just watched the video - not sure I agree
First comment That guy would NEVER wash my car - rubbing sh - t into the paint on a dry cloth!!!!!!!!! first commandment :- its wet or clean before you touch it.
I don't buy wax, nor think its better because its in a nice bottle on the shelf (what???) - I buy it to protect the paint and look better, Autoglym won hands down IMHO look at the colour and the beading.
If its better I will pay a little more as well,

As usual with utube, yer pays yer money and makes yer own choice.

I think I will try the Autobrite and report back. As I have no confidence in this guys "tests" , you never quite know who gave him the most freebies!!!!!!

sorry.......... an old cynic !!!!

Well, I had an opportunity to test the Autobrite detailer independently today - (I bought all the stuff! myself)
My sons Caddy ( I Know!!) was due for return, and believe me they are fussy!
The Caddy is 7 months old and has done 8000 miles (been to Switzerland for 3 months!) and has been washed once!
washday 1.jpg
So, I decided to test out my new snow cannon ( Hermes delivered today), the Autobrite Foam (delivered yesterday)and the Autobrite detailer (bought yesterday)
so the snow canon bought off the internet was
foam canon.jpg
and I used it with
washday 2.jpg
wait 10 mins
quick wash with a mitt then jet washed the soap off
applied the 'detailer' with a microfiber cloth, turned the cloth and buffed
washday 3.jpg
Amazing
As I said this is the first time I have used a detailer and took the opportunity to use it on the Caddy before using it on my car and haven't got any long term results but can't wait now.
I have to say that the results are a maze zing !!!!! it's not clear on the low res photos here but the surface has a deep gloss is smooth and looks a quality job. It was easy to use - too easy!
My son said that the car was too good to return and that the inspectors would be suspicious that he was trying to cover something up!!
Questions that come to mind are :-
What do you get if you spend more on a snow cannon?
Are the foam additives different?
What would the results have been like if I had bought the Autoglym detailer in the post above?
these and more questions will be answered in time I suppose.

I tend to use Iodetail nowadays as they are brilliant on delivery, and don’t charge if over £35. They don’t have all the stuff in yet. Yes, BH is what I use too, but figure why not try this as I am yet to be disappointed with Gyeon products tbh, bathe+, SF, interior detailer, ceramic, tyre cleaner etc.

Agree think the restart should be good and as you know I have the Pure coating

Read into the Gyeon wax and its a BIG NO 30 minute curing time not got that much time to let a wax cure think i'll go with Mohs&Pure use the Mohs only especially at the front/lower sides/rear of the car....not the roof as both together are a massive beading monster so rain water can easily be burnt in to the paint.....We have a infestation of nesting birds around this year it's relentless got to be seen to be believed mate cars/houses and pavements saturated with ****...i'll leave my car over at my mums next week when l use her car....not leaving it here...as l stay at mums during the week .When l drove home into the drive and saw what l did just could'nt believe it l must have pressure washed at least 50 shits off Avril's car same with my mums and that's just one days worth as Avril has been blasting **** it off everyday.....2 hours later its the same...

Get that air blower I got from Amazon to sort your trapped water. Mines been great, works so good on wheel nut holes, door shut and mirrors.
On another note I think your dodgy birds have migrated to my side of the Scotland. Went to take the wee in to a class this morning and found bird crap all over the car, even on the wheels and some ran into the gaps between the tailgate and body. Completely disgusting!!
Had to spend 10 minutes hosing the car down before going to the class. Now I got patches all over the car that doesn’t beed water where the bird shits been.

Been in this house for 6 years and never had this. They are ruining the lawn as well as they are pecking at something in the grass.
Don’t want to become one of those weird neighbours that cleans their car in the rain which I was close to the other day.

I found my problem is they have been nesting in my neighbours gutters right in the corner/end part, my car/house must been in their normal flight path.
still trying to figure out why they pecking in my lawn. It’s ruined it.

It’s subsided cause they moved over to the sunnier side of Scotland and it’s just starting over here.
gulls never bothered me around here cause they always hanging around the Macdonald’s and food places. I’m miles from any of them.

If you are getting the amount of rain we are getting 'down south' (Staffordshire) it will be washed off for you automatically. :grimacing:
I have a telegraph line which crosses over where I park and you wouldn't believe how often they use my car as a sand tray!!!

You have probably got leatherjackets in your lawn and that's what they are after. If so it will be the leatherjackets ruining your lawn so they are doing you a favour

All the exterior panels on the TT are small mate apart from the bonnet the XFE 7-15-150 struggles withe panels that much so l am selling one again it's been used for about an hour lol selling it with 6 new hex logic pads and 3 that's just been used ounce.... Gyeon pads the smaller xfe 7-12-80 is far more suited to TT....SO ANYONE OUT THERE lol interested in a bargain...PM me..lol
