  50. Help needed with bringing out the shine

    I'm going to be buying some Auto Finesse triple at the weekend as my flame red corsa is going more barbie pink on the roof.. Any tips on what sort of clothes ect ect I will be needing? I do have an electric buffer if that will be better than doing it by hand. Also, will the pink ever show strong...
