Hi guys.

When I bought the car I had it all treated and Zymoiled!! It's over 3 years gone and although it is mostly sat in a Carcoon in garage I thought it is time to give the body paint a bit of TLC!!

Car colour is arctic silver. Should it use a Zymoil wax or use a different make product please? Is it a Wax that I need just to ensure paint is kept in great condition?

Please kindly advise! Cheers. Thumb

Speak to Polished Bliss;

I was recommended a sealant as the wax dulls the metallic of the silver.

They recommend Carlack or Klasse

Polished bliss are very helpful.

I like the Bilt Hamber products they sell, which are great value.

Clark who is the main detailer was very helpful when I bought my GT3 having a close look over the bodywork for me. He owns a 996 GT3.

Agree! PB is very helpful.
Collinite is pretty good stuff from my experience.
