Poorboys every time. I've tested them all and poorboys is a cut above the rest
Give it a go and you will never use anything else

Another vote for Poorboys although I also love Collinite, Sonus, Britemax, Carlack and Serious Performance products.

Blast from the past, Coal Tar Soap, I'm going to get myself some of that this coming weekend - I'm sure the wife will be happy.

For anyone with little time (or two cars) its a quick Henry out, simoniz matt dash wipes, then rinse and liqued gold, decent shine and no need to leather! Then autoglym tyre black foam. If I have more time a coat of autoglym super resin polish.

We ought to arrange a polish off !

I know that poorboys goes on easier, comes off easier and gives a better, deeper shine, I've been down the autoglym route many times with show cars and it's no where near as good as poorboys.. Anyone agree or disagree?

I have mates, one of them a pro detailer, that swear by Autoglym HD wax, as for me I'm not a fan.

Each to their own though, we all have our personal preferences.

I use a mixture of stuff but my wife bought me a load of dodo juice stuff and it's great, when just doing a quick was tho I tend to use car plan triple wax shampoo, gives a good shine and water beads off well, it isn't harsh and so doesn't remove any wax I've previously applied.

Be good to get some photos up, if the weather's nice over this weekend I'll try get out to mine and give it a scrub up!

This is the result of using a good car shampoo and a polish with poorboys black hole. It would be even better if I had time to put the poorboys glaze over it but I ran out of time.

Easy to apply, easy to remove, washed and polished in less than an hour
