The superpolish on it's own is fine but the cleanser is also a top product
I believe that a few applications, left to dry will do a nice job

Anytime, thats what dream machines is all about

It's the only product I know that is meant to be left to dry and actually is a concentrated polish.
I'll be selling that at some stage

Update! Aurora you prob won't be happy with me now but i was in my local AutoBahn today looking at ther products and purchased 'Auto Glym' Super Resin Polish as it was 50% off and today was a good day to get into proper polishing as it was'nt too hot...This product appears to be top shelf and i was willing to spend if it gave me what i wanted.....
I had some Meguires applicating pads so used one to rub the polish on and then let it dry as instructed,
then using my bro's trusty polisher with clean pad i polsihed each panel at slow speed which was fine and the polsih did what it was supposed to but...
The base coat i believe is still faded and in the sun is prob more like a Burnt Orange than Regency Red
So really i'm prob chasing my tail no matter what i use.....Any conclusions/suggestions!!!

No mate I'm not angry at all.
I understand that, they are nearby and you are dying to get it right so gave it a go

If the base coat (under the clear) is faded then it's most likely needs repainting
If in the clear, I believe that it is definately repairable.
I'll send you some ultra gloss and prima amigo once I have those 125ml bottles in stock

yes true but that won't make it better than new. Sounds like he needs a product that will soak into the paint rather than just cut out paint to bring back the shine

I'd love to give driven quick spray and the rotary a go on it. That is a miracle spray product. It goes beyond what abrasive polishes can do as far as lustre goes.
