Hey Captain, Saw a couple of Waxpol products in MK Ahmed. Do take a look. Though I didn't see the tin of waxpol, but I did see the carbuna wax [ red color cover ] in there. Since I am having Turtle wax, to last for another 6 months, I dropped the idea of picking it up.

PM me if you want to know more

Tin is exactly like this

the acutal wax looks somewhat similar to what poloman posted.

Does the bigger tin have some kind of kerosene or similar smell to it?? This one does.
I think the product is the same and the wax in big tin has petroleum type of smell.

Thank you so much!
You got PM

Thanks Tsk123,
Yes the tin I got does have a heavy petroleum type of smell to it. So I guess its the same stuff as the bigger tins.

Thumbs up

Hi all,

I was filling petrol in my car at one of the HP petrol pumps in Hinjawadi area & that time some guys came to demo the Car care products they were selling. They really impressed me by making a deep scratch less visible by using their product. They were selling a Kit package of 4 items (Spray Shiner, Stain Remover, Clean N Shine Wax, Windshield Cleaner). Kit also contained one piece of soft foam. They asked for 450 & I paid 400 Rs for the kit after slight negotiation. Guys were ready to take payment through HP Outlet using Credit card but I preferred to pay in cash though this aspect made me trust them more. They said they are associated with HP.

In short, product is really worth spending the money. You may try to negotiate more. Here is the weblink to their website. Being a chemical engineer myself, I first had doubts on the product but now I am glad with my decision.

Check their website, though price quoted on weblink are on higher side:

Car Care Products - Car Polish,Car Shiner,Car Care Accessories Product,Car Maintenance Kit in India

Regards
Dharmesh

I've used these products long back owing to the successful removal of scratch marks but later switched over to 3M's offerings due to personal choice.

I enquired about the brands used by the wax/polising guys at sector17, vashi. I was suggested several various brands.

I know a dealer at lohaar chaal near crawford market and buy such electrical stuff from him regularly for our factory/office/home use. He also has a shop at at janta market in turbhe, close to vashi. I went there and was suggested a brand - IDEAL. I called up my sector17 mechanic and he said that they used it too and vouched for its reliablity. He also gave me the model no.

I bought the machine for Rs. 2800 (originally quoted 3500). Its a variable speed hand held machine with the disc and a wollen buffing wheel. I also took along a grinding disc useful to remove welding burrs (ofcourse thats not for my car). It comes with a 6 months guarantee. Extra buffing wheel comes for Rs 350.

I will be using it on sunday morning. I must wake up early and finish by 11am (family function after that). Will mail the pics of the machine and the car on monday.

Grinders and sanders are something, that one should use with extreme caution,the pressure applied might not be same for whole surface.It won't take much time, to eat paint. Practice before you use it on your car!

I have taken some pics of the machie and the wheel. However, i think that the apt thread will be ARTICLE: The Car Care guide (Aesthetics) so i will continue my post there. I can see you actively involved there as well. I am posting the pics of the machine there shortly.

Yes, what you say is absolutely true. I wont dare to use rubbing/polishing compounds with inexperienced hands. I am only gonna use this for waxing the car and that too only to buff the wax off the car. Wax will be applied by me by hand. You can follow my subsequent posts at the above link.

I have used the ultra glo on painted surfaces. It has some abrasiveness in it. One can see the color of paint on the pad or cloth when removing it.
The 2in1 is simply cleaner cum polisher. It does not have wax capabilities. You can apply it on any dirty surface as it contains mild cleaners in it.
The red one is still to be used by me.

I have used the yellow glo. Gives great shine, leaves a chalky residue, and is very very slightly abrasive. Don't think using it once in 2-3 months should hurt. You can top off with pure carnauba wax or waxpol liquid wax in between.
