    Hi Dave.
    Polish- "Farecla G3" for very dull bodies, this is a rubbing compound and should be use with a damp cloth ( I do the polishing just after washing the vehicle while it's still wet). "Farecla G10" is a cream finishing polish, also used with a damp cloth. Then finally you can use a silicone based final polish to stop the flies sticking. The black lines will become much reduced if you polish the roof too!

          No problem. We are happy for people to endorse products that they find useful or good value or both but we don't like companies coming on to advertise their own products (unless they are paying for the privelege of course)

            For a quick shine I use Demon Shine it works really well.

            But you cant beat a good wax for a great finish you have to go a long way to beat Autoglym products.

            Mer does a good range as well

              For black marks, you can't beat that magic eraser stuff!

              http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=JML+Magic+Eraser+V1352&x=17&y=23

              Look thru the Amazon linky and search for Magic eraser!

                I use two latvians and a pole.
                It gets the job done without me breaking into a sweat.
                It removes mud,stains, dog hairs, the left overs from a carsick child etc
                Extremely good value for money.

                  Ian, could you lend me your latvians and pole, they sound ideal! My sister and I are vertically challenged and will need my 7 tread decorating ladder to reach the roof. Even then it will be hard to reach the centre!!

                    Use a nice fluffy mop - does the job very well - as I know myself from also being vertically challenged!!
