Dear Wife. Gone to garage. Back in Spring

Recommended Posts

Nothing major needs doing on my Evora but having recently retired I have suddenly found myself with plenty of garage time....time to bring out the polisher for a bit of paint improvement. 😁 It was in a pretty good state anyway but there are always areas for further improvement. Got the front clam and roof done so far, plenty more to go at yet...

Thanks Drage, I'm no expert but I've been using Menzerna medium cut and super finish polishes with hexlogic pads on a das6 pro da polisher and am suitably pleased with the results. I have been able to remove a good number of surface scuffs and scratches.

Of late I've been getting all my stuff from Shop n Shine in Derby and have got a new wax from them to try this time called Fusso coat so I'll have to see how I get on with that in due course. 🙂

Similar to what I’ve been using but I’ve used Poorboys products with good results. Also Meguiars Ultra finishing polish is a really good product I’ve found. I’ll have a look at that wax because I’ve been looking for something different recently.

I've used Soft 99 Fusso wax on my Aston, it's impressive stuff. Apparently they have changed the formula recently and it now not as durable but smells less of solvents. The stuff I have has a very strong smell. Supposedly last for up to 12 months.

Looking at prices seems to have gone up by 50% too. Mind you it got such rave reviews I guess demand is high. I think I paid about £17 last year.

This is the stuff I have https://www.polishedbliss.co.uk/soft99-fusso-coat-wax

This is the new stuff https://www.shopnshine.co.uk/products/soft99-new-fusso-coat-light?_pos=7&_sid=f25009155&_ss=r

They do a dark and light version.

That's good to hear Leigh, although my Evora is black/grey I opted for the light version in the end since we have 2 other white cars that I'll be using it on at some point :)

I don't think it really makes that much difference if it's dark or light, they certainly have no colour/tint in them. When I used it on the Aston I threw a microfibre polishing cloth on the bonnet when I'd finished. It immediately slid off onto the floor, it was incredibly slick!

Thanks Leigh, I’ll buy some of the older one tonight. 👍🏻👍🏻

Drage, there was a comparison of the 2 on you tube. Very long video but basically says they are the same apart from durability and I don't think there was that much in it anyway.

Thanks again, I’ll have look 👀

Well that's me about done in the garage on the Evora, it's all polished and now has red mirrors to boot, as per my other post.

Just finished off by taking the wheels off and having a bit of a clean and polish/wax around there too B)

You’ve probably got a wheel sealant wax but if you’ve never used any, this is the stuff that makes cleaning wheels so much easier and last about 12 months. Nothing will stick to your wheels.

Chemical Guys Max Coat 👍🏻👍🏻
