Coat of Topaz wax and a final coat of meguiers paint protect synthetic polymer coating for winter protection...

Shouldn't that be applied the other way around i.e wax on top?

Not an expert but wax product contains fillers and enhancers so increases gloss and car looks 50% better at least with it plus the other product is a very strong hydrophobic product so adds a beading dimension.

 

ill post an example pic that wax alone won’t produce

I had a 'spirited' drive with @Gutley on our way to the Blackbushe meeting and managed to get the car airborne at one point and slid around several roundabouts, all within the speed limit of course! Squeaky bum time! In all covered nearly 200 miles and it was a great way to blow the cobwebs away.

Not actually something I did to the car, more for it.....Ordered a Stormforce car cover after my own drain hole grief and tales of woe from @Stuart21UK and others.

OMG!  Who was responsible for the centre cap in photo 1?

I was just wondering if he wanted me to change the tone of the cetnre cap on pic 3 to match the others too....it's a slippery slope

it starts with odd centre caps, mis-aligned crests and before you know it your the guy on the forum we all pity

Arent they supposed to point towards the locking wheel bolt? Even more of a fail 😂 Missing a locking wheel bolt on pic 4 too 🙄

Mine hasn't got locking wheel nuts, so the new ones will be pointing towards the tyre valves instead... :whistle1:

Just out of interest, is there a special technique or tool for removing the centre caps without scratching them?

I use a small allen key to carefully pull mine off the wheel from the front...

I smash their back doors in with the handle of a hammer.

I also would give the nuts a quick spray with black paint, rather than buy new.  Only buy new when the collars crumble.

Like John, I spent Sunday with my traction control light on and a few times looking through side windows.  Winter wheels need to leave lounge and be fitted

I finally took delivery of some vinyl cut to my spec.

pictures to follow when I install...
