VW Blue

Hello guys, hope you are all well and enjoying the slow return to normality. Just looking for some advice on a suitable polish to use on the girlfriends VW Polo. Its a really nice vibrant non-metallic solid blue (see image below). I will be applying by hand as I am too poor to afford a rotary and all its accessories.

TIA.

Ag srp

Autoglym's Super Resin Polish is easy to use and very effective. It would really help to lift the gloss on the blue paint.

Yup Super Resin Polish will clean the paint and enhance it.

It will also fill in minor swirls and scratches as it cleans and then seal the finish with a high gloss - it will last for about 6-8 weeks of typical weather before its gone and needs doing again, maybe longer in dry weather.

VW Blue

AG SRP as recommended above, AF triple is another one to try - both easily available from Halfords

Whereabouts are you based ?
