have a look on www.detailingworld.co.uk

or if you cant be bothered, t cut is rather harsh and outdated, something like autoglym super resin polish is a safer choice, then follow up with extra gloss protection

basically if the paint work of the car is flat/dull, then polish wont revive it, sounds like your case.

T cut or similar will revive paintwork, but then needs good and regular polish on it to protect it or it will dull again quickly (like yours?) and have to be repeated. Eventually doing this wears all the paint away though!

wants buffing with something like g3, corsa's are bad for going really flat in white.

Quick question T & G. Why do you always refer to your Zafira as a 'zafria'? Only reason I ask is because of the few times I've edited it to the correct spelling over in Technical Matters, should anyone do a forum search for one. DD.

Can't say i have ever seen a white Zafira! Have you owned it since new?

ive only seen a few white ones around since ive bought it over a year ago
perhaps they only made a certain amout of white ones

Or a Ford Capri.

Mind you, it's catching: DD has implied you are a Transport and General worker rather than T & J !

As Steve metioned earier in the thread, it's the T-cut that is causing the dullness of the paint.

There are now many many better products available, Autoglym is easily available, with on-line stores selling an even wider selection.

Reason I asked how long you have had it, maybe with it being white then its earlier life might have been as police or some other use that may have resulted in it having graphics etc on the car? Which could in turn have taken away all the shine from the paintwork?
