    Wow! I worked at Harmony Gold Mine as a Reduction Official in the Amalgam Room - I still don't believe the shite I handles there! Buckets of Cyanide, Mercury and Caustic Soda. If you know what is entailed you know what I'm talking about.... Moebie stuff!

    Ans before I worked for Welkom Honda I also did a stint at Western Holdings Saaiplaas as a Environmental Control Officer 2km's underground. I decided to leave after there was an almighty "Bump" and 6 guys working in a Stope I had just left doing measurements died!! I never went down again....

    I eventually left there to go back to Zim - the Middus hated the place, and I wasn't too keen either.

    Here's me standing next to my Boss Karl and work colleague Colin at The Welkom Honda Braai 1982 - a lifetime ago...!!! :shock:

    I always take it to the local jet wash which has added shampoo then super resin polish then extra gloss protection. I think I does a good job. Is there anything that is better? I'm going to scitp at the weekend and going to shine the old girl up any better recommendations?

    SRP is excellent but Sonax Brilliant Shine Detailer instead of the EGP is much easier, simply spray on and buff

    Just remembered I have 2 x bottles of this in the garage I got at ECP couple of years ago on a two for one (£7.50 IIRC), might use it up at Donington this weekend :)

    Auto Bright Carnauba Wax deep wet look shine. Quite easy and quick, I like quick, washing and polishing cars is in no way enjoyable.

    It's one of those jobs that if you have limited time they are a nightmare.

    I used the wife's car to gain some DA polishing skills before attacking mine.

    For Washing the outside i generally use autoglym, and same goes with using clay bars for me it didnt make a difference what brand i used!
    For wax i used dodo juice, apply a few coats and it lasts for months, also they do specific colours for different types of colours on cars!

    Have you ever used their top coat/sealant after waxing?

    That's the Future Armour. I bought 5L of it. Works well, its reasonably easy to apply but in the heat you have to be careful to avoid staining.

    They revised the formula late last year, saying its more user friendly IIRC and I've not tried that.
