Auto Glym Car care products...

Last year, I purchased some Auto Glym vinyl cleaner, and was impressed with the performance of this product. The label suggested that it could be used as an engine bay dressing, and I was very impressed with the results!
Lately, I have been using Meguiars clay bar, NXT polish and NXT Ultimate detailer. These products I am very pleased with for ease of use and end results. My Jeep usually is maintained meticulously, so the paint has always been in good shape anyways.
Last week (I'm in Canada) Canadian Tire had Auto Glym care care product on sale, and given the quality of the vinyl cleaner I decided to try their Super Resin Polish, and Rapid Detailer.
The Super Resin Polish is like liquid clay bar, in that it has a very fine abrasive to remove surface impurities. It goes on very easily and comes off with minimal effort. There is some powdering, but nothing like similar products I have used. They recommend treating the entire vehicle at once, but my preference is the one panel at a time method. The result is a super slick surface, which virtually eliminated all swirl marks and gave a very deep "wet look" to the paint. I then followed with the Rapid Detailer to remove any lint or left over polish residue. This was done by hand in about 40 minutes using micro fiber towels. I'm totally sold on this line of products. I have tried more waxes and cleaners in my 40 years of vehicle ownership than I can remember, and this has to rank near the top.
I'm not much of a picture taker, so sorry for not being able to properly show the results. I can state that in the past week, two random individuals have asked me if my Jeep was brand new while I was pumping $1.40 per litre premium into my gas tank.

Re: Auto Glym Car care products...

Rapid detail is just uneconomical. Get a gallon of Meguiars Last Touch, you can even dilute it 1:1.

Super Resin Polish (SRP) on the other hand is a fanstastic filler heavy glaze with paint cleansing properties as a added bonus. Claying is still required however, you are right it is a very good cleaner.

If you have the time and energy you can hide a good majority of your swirls with it and it also works great by machine where it hides swirls better and goes on even thinner. Dusting suggests you are applying too much product, a few pea sized drops will do an average panel or 1/2 the hood.

As a sealant though it isn't great so either top it off with Extra Gloss Protection (EGP) or a wax/sealant of your choice to protect your hard work.

Re: Auto Glym Car care products...

They just discountinued selling AutoGlym at our WalMart in the USA. I believe Autoglym is a really good product! I totally agree and believe you! I have their wax and Vinyl Protectant and Shampoo! I got them for a good deal since they were on the discountinued rack! I'm currently detailing cars on the side, I'll post up some pics of my Jeep once I have used it on it!

yes, I'm very impressed with the engine bay. Haven't tried their paint products yet.
