Firstly I would like to say a big hello to all the Scirocconet members! :wave:

My name is Roy and I run theshinexperience. We are a specialist sports and prestige car detailing company based in Suffolk but offering a mobile service covering mainly the South East and by request anywhere in the UK and beyond.

We have a very simple philosophy, to offer the highest levels of service to all our customers. We are not interested in offering bronze, silver or even platinum treatments, the products and service levels for all customers are exactly the same, the only choice you have to make is which of the carefully chosen waxes or sealants will be lovingly applied by hand to your car.

As the name suggests we firmly believe that having your car detailed should be an experience and one that stays with you. Our service guarantee is that we won’t leave until you are delighted with the results.

Because we are not tied to one particular brand we can offer a truly bespoke service using products that we have tested extensively and which we feel offer the best possible combination of quality and durability.

Whether you are looking to get your new car properly sorted before you collect it or if you’re beloved Scirocco is suffering from wash swirl marks and other paint defects then we can sort it for you.

I hope to start posting up some “how to” guides soon and will be more than happy to answer any questions that you have, I should imagine most will be detailing related but hey I used to work in the wine trade for five years so if you need to know what to drink on a Friday night then I’m your man too!

Feel free to contact me if you would like more information or would like to get your car booked in. If you have any car cleaning questions then need an instant answer then just drop me an email, my Blackberry is practically tied to my hand so I can reply to any queries swiftly.

I look forward to speaking to and hopefully meeting some of the members on here in the coming months.

Contact details:
Tel: 07734 733281

Cheers,

Roy

Hi, thanks for the welcome. I can come over to NI if you like, would be an ideal thing if you could get a group of people together who want their cars done and then I could spend a couple of weeks over there. Would make it more cost effective for you and its always nice to have a trip away! :thumbup:

yeah hi roy, welcome aboard, im so glad you are here, we have far to many disagreements on detailing...

firstly an autoglym question, the extra gloss protection, at what point should this be added...

you advise is greatly appreciated..

scott...
Hi Scott,

Thanks for the welcome.

Extra Gloss Protection is a sealant and as such should be applied as the last stage of your cleaning routine. If you are using Super Resin Polish as well, then use this first and then apply the EGP over it.

Cheers,

Roy

thanks roy, so let me get this clear, i would polish, than wax, then egp...sorry but this subject needs severe clarification..

thx
If you are just using the Super Resin Polish then apply that first then the EGP. If you are waxing as well then you can apply the EGP and then wax on top of that. One of the best finishes I have ever seen was 9 coats of a Zaino Sealant topped off with 3 coats of Swissvax Mystery Wax.

If you are applying more than one coat of the EGP then I would advise trying to leave 24 hours between coats to get the best results.

What wax will you be using?

Roy I use Super Resin Polish, then EGP then Autoglym High Definition Wax. What do you think of those products?
All good products and will give pleasing results. There are other options and different combinations you can use, so when your next running out of the AutoGlym let me know and I will give you some advice on what other choices there are that would give you even better results

There are loads of choices for lighter coloured cars, however if you fancy a freebie then I have got a pot of Zymol Glasur (retail about £90 i think). It was designed for Porsche paintwork (although I dont believe in these marque specific waxes) and I have to say I love the look of it on lighter coloured cars. If you want a few free coats then just PM me your address and I will pop some in the post for you free of charge. Then we can see how you get on with that and then go from there.

Cheers,

Roy
