washing with pressure washer, yay or nay? Been reading a lot of opinion on this.

Even when I practice weekly wash, dirt can be very generous in Malaysia environment, or at least on my car. Been getting wash marrings even with 2 buckets grit guard system. (rinse bucket has 2 grit guards, solution has 1) Even top up my shampoo to make thicker solution and replace wash mitt every now and then

I have seen car come in nice condition with little swirls and marring. After APC washing a panel, the defects shown up like 'wow wtf', there's some serious masking of defects =P Not sure if this is your case, just sharing hahaha xD

Hi gus/sifus!!! i just wash clay and wax my car the other day, i found out that on my roof and bonnet i saw alot of swirls marks. i was terrifies of polishing my car because:

1. im not a experience detailer, polishing will only create more swirl mark.
2. i dont have any polishing machine.

i know there's some type called polish and some called compound. i know polish is removing a thin layer of dirt/defected clear coat to review the fresh under layer. Do regular polish will affect the clear coat alot ?

im having a 2011 vios E

any suggestions ? advice for any product that affordable lah~ haha College guy here.

currently having a fresh layer of Wax.

get a DA for urself if u really care abt the swirls smile.gif I have been using Shinemate ERO600 for 3 years. It's awesome for light correction. IIRC it's priced around RM600 (Sabah), not sure the current price lol.

Then get urself a Meguiar's Ultimate Polish (RM90?, it will last u almost forever lol) as it's a user friendly entry level product imo.

Welcome to the club =P

Do regular polish will affect the clear coat alot ? < no, if u know what ur doing smile.gif
