It was, and is, a light-hearted quip on a public forum.

I am very sorry that you were offended by it as it was not a 'dig' as ano has suggested, and which I was happy to clarify earlier. Might I suggest that you PM Kent if it's his contribution you are seeking?

I will leave you to your thread, especially as for some unfathomable reason dieselderv seems to think his post was being referenced by me.
Chubby hell! My choice of dig instead of quip seems to have sparked something!

To clarify, I used it because it is only three letter on my rubbish phone screen. Also, for me and those that I know, a light hearted dig about something is not a problem. That is it. Nothing more to read into it. It did seem like a light hearted comment, it in fact made me chuckle and I was tempted to write about a Panda eating shoots and leaves but didn't because of the aforementioned phone screen that I find myself having to write a justification essay on now!

I think everyone had ignored your punctuation after the appeal for help for Kent!

I think your answer has been the only on topic one so far hasn't it?

As for the OP, might something like Blacklight be a product that would help?

Hi Phil,
I think the stuff DD is referencing may be Dynaglaze. It is used a lot in the trade and does cover fantastically well but as he says...it does wash out.
If you get her car back to basic conditions, you may have to spend a lot of time on it. I don't know what time you have, want or even could spend on it given your health issues :cry: (hopefully you're well on the mend now).
Wash and strip the car. A TFR or washing up liquid :shock: will do that for you.
Give the car a once over with a clay bar/mitt.
If you have access to a polishing machine, correct the car with that and a good compound/polish. You know I use and prefer the 3M Perfect-It range of products.
Once you have yourself a nice surface, layer up a few very thin coats of polish. This will give the appearance of depth to the finish.
Seal the finish with 'Ten Quid' (Finish Kare 1000p), Collinite 476 or 845...845 is an awesome product. Let's you apply it very thinly, is easy on and easy off. It's very hard wearing too.
The 915 you mention is my Summer wax, its dripping wet but has only a short life on the car, perhaps two to three months. It's dependant on what you can manage on your Gerts car???
Top this off with FK425, this will bring your finish back after each wash and also increase the finishes 'wet look'
This is by no means the only way to get the finish you are looking for but it is one I've used on Steel Grey in the past.
I'll see if I can't find some pictures for you :corn: I do know 'The Law' ;)
Best of luck with it Phil

Detailing World has loads of threads on topics like this - though obviously 'best' waxes etc are a matter of opinion.

Here's one to get started, but there are probably dozens:

Kent must be busy as he usually chips in pretty quickly. Give him a bit longer as I am sure he will be along soon.

Sorry I've been talking with Phil on WhatsApp.
Go on Phil, spill the beans for everyone else to see... Debi is still furious about it now! Someone at Mercedes Benz would have been going to sleep if they'd delivered a new car to her like that :argh: :argh: :argh:
