Ok so I'm going to invest in some valet pro citrus pre-wash, one of the shampoos you recommend and the Sonax QD spray.

I have been using Autoglym resin polish of late which I think is very good. What's your opinion on it PT compared to what you use as a polish for your own daily drivers :?:

As they've been lifeshined, you shouldn't need to use a polish otherwise you'll be removing the sealant you've just paid hundreds to have applied...

SRP is a jack of all trades in that it contains a lot of fillers but also some abrasive particles. It is mediocre at both filling and abrading as it is impossible to be good at both. A better bet would be a synthetic glaze such as Prima Amigo. It has a lot of fillers but leaves a much deeper glow to the paint. It is designed to have a synthetic wax or sealant applied to protect the finish.

I feel another article coming on... There is a correct order to do things otherwise you undo the work you have spent time / money doing.
