Never used it before so now want to get the paint bodywork mint. From the people on here who use these things which would you all recommend? Thanks for the advice in advance.

Meguires kit is pretty decent can be picked up in Halfords too.

Wash car, don't dry it just go straight to clay panel at a time and use lots of quick detailer to keep the panel lubricated.

The megs kit is alright to start with.

I used a Halfords own kit the first time I did it! Came with clay and lubricating spray. It's an awesome finish you get!
