want to get a detailing kit for my gtr as the thing really needs it due to a few light marks in the paintwork and lots n lots of swirl marks

I know absolutely nothing about detailing and polishing etc so whats the best stuff to get
something simple to use with minimal effort plese

im used to compounding etc but don't really want to do that as it removes too much paint from surface!

any help advice, links please guys

Yep that meguairs stuff is good,but prefer using the bilt hamber clay bar which can be used with water so makes the job slightly easier and does pretty much same as meguairs clay, if not a bit better Wink

i was recommended this clay bar a while back it is one of if not the only one that doesnt use some sort of spray it uses water it worked really well.

also if your car is black then poorboys black hole glaze is good for after polishing then after a glaze seal it with poorboys wet mirror finish this brought my black mk1 golf up amzingly. As for polish it really is down to preference i think
