Just about the time I learned to walk I fell in love
with my first car. They've been a passion ever since.
I've owned a lot, from an awful Austin A40 to an amazing
Ferrari F430, and I've enjoyed driving every single one
to say I've enjoyed keeping them looking beautiful would be a lie.
Polishing a car has never been a highlight of my day - although I'll
admit to a glow of satisfaction when it's over and one stands back
and admires a gleaming piece of automotive art.
So, some years ago, fed up with the tedious business of keeping
various cars gleaming in an environment where mud and 'moo cows' are
the downside of idyllic country living, I set out to find the best
car polish in the world. It would be quick and easy to use. It would
leave a tough, dirt-resistant coating and a deep, gleaming concours
finish which would last for a reasonable length of time in everyday
road conditions - my cars enjoy an active life.
I tried a
LOT of polishes but nothing satisfied. Most were ridiculously hard
work, left powdery deposits and gave only a thin sort of shine which
didn't last or provide much protection against traffic film, cows
I made one, perhaps unsurprising, discovery: you pay for quality.
Costly, carnauba-rich waxes are the best thing you can put on your
car. No argument - they give a vastly superior finish. But something
was still missing. Even the most expensive wax that I tried had
shortcomings. Unfortunately, I'm a perfectionist, so I decided to
investigate creating my very own car wax.
I talked to
paint technologists, classic and luxury car owners, physicists
who specialise in atomic level surface analysis and specialist
detailers who prepare cars for international motor shows. I also
found a company in England that know a very great deal about wax -
they've been blending speciality waxes since 1914. So I asked them
to work with me. Their traditional values and respect for quality,
today's technology and my bloody-minded perfectionism would together
create the very best car wax in the world.
And that, I
believe, is exactly what we have achieved - twice over!
Our waxes do
contain any abrasives.They are safe and equally
effective on all makes of car, colours of paint and types of finish
including clear-coats. And that superb gloss and protection lasts and
lasts - not for ever, of course, but for very much longer than
anything else I've ever used.
