Default Autoglym Extra Gloss Protector Applied.

I applied a coat of Autoglym Extra Gloss Protector to my ZTT.

I find that once your car is washed and polished, the Extra Gloss Protector really enhances the shine.

Looks spot on very good. I have a bottle of this, never used it. Was always a bit worried about they curing time, says an hour from memory. Would rain in that hour up here How long do you leave it to cure?

Lovely job there, EGP really does the trick, I have used many glazes over the years but always come back to EGP, looks great.

Ideally leave it as long as you can on the car, once applied in a very light coat you can test after 30 minutes by just touching with your finger, if it still moves it has not yet cured, once cured just polish off. You can also polish off if it is wet, just make sure to polish the panel completely and dry.

Default Autoglym EGP

Nev

Looks like you have done a good job, and nice reflections as well

Only thing I don't like about EGP is the dust it leaves afterwards. I am going to try a new product which I have come across and has good reviews

Autoglym EGP warning!

This stuff can really damage your excuse to get away from her indoors because the car needs a wash and a polish!

I haven't touched mine for over two weeks and it still looks great. Every time it rains, the grime just rinses off and when it dries, it's still sparkling. Great stuff.
