best for washing the car, told this by like 3 different panel beaters and a few old chev lovers that work behind me is MOrning fresh and warm water - that right morning fresh, its better than palmolive, even the sensative skin one too
- never use truck wash, its so bad for your paint.

oh and for you guards and tyres ertc, thers this clean silicone stuff you can buy, not sure where tho that you paint on wi9th a brush, same stuff they use at tyre places when you get new tyres - works wonders on all old black plastic and rubber

also for plastic you can use boot polish, not the one in the bottle with a spong on top that the kids use for tjheir school shoes but the one in the tub that you use a brush to put it on and another to buff it off.

for the tree sap, i get it on my bonett all the time, just use hot water and morning fresh and a bit of elbow greese.

to polish, try MOTHERS 3 STEP, better than anything i ayhve ever tried, meguires, polyglaze, t-cut all shocking. - we did a test ones and did the roof of my girlfreinds car with 4 or 5 different polishes in sections and mothers was the winner by a mile - so smooth its like glass.

on glass windows use rain-x, best thing in the world as all the rain just beads off the window, ist the best and stuff is so easy to clean off em.


in saying all this in the last uyear i ahve washed my car 3 times with soap, but next weekend its getting the most beautiful polish - cant wait.

For zips on the soft tops, if there sticking a bit, a little lead pencil along the zip will make it move nicely, same as graffite, jus not as bloody messy

Thats the idea i am standing by at the moment, althought it probably should get a clean sometime soon. Getting pretty feral.

This is the first time i have read this thread and i'm with CrazyNuts on the Amoural Tyre Foam, have used it for a few years on tyres and other black plasitic/rubber bit like mud flaps etc. The weekend just gone I used it on the jeep and squirted it on the mud guards and woalla, sweet, had a few streaks, otherwise good. Will have to use it under the bonnet.

I haven't tried this yet but MrSheen is good for restoring shine to your Hard Top, and cheap spray on cooking oil is great under guards and stuff to make cleaning mud off easier, I use this on my motocross bike with great results.
