    ebay job http://goo.gl/xBzuzj, they could do with being a little wider, so they stick on better, but good otherwise

    i had a quick read of the label, do you just use polish then apply this? or can you layer it on top of another wax/sealant?

    I use it over a polish (I've got poor boys white diamond) and sealant then use natty's over the top, one or two coats.

    Looks like I need a new aircon rad, I doubt it will get done under my ownership as I never use it

    Well if you don't use it just remove the other stuff or just leave it as is. Have you had a go with the polish yet?

    Finally got around to using that wax last week, really like it, nice and easy to put on and take off, and some good beading, just need to give it 2nd coat maybe this weekend if the weather is any good

    Got the car booked in to get the Aircon fixed and get my polybushed exhaust mounts fitted next week :smiley:

    Had the Aircon sorted today, and the rear exhaust mounts fitted :smiley: . Last weekend i gave the inside of windscreen some Gtechniq G4 and then gave it a coating of anti fog gel, as i have already had a couple of fogged windscreens
