Some fantastic recommendations here.

Hyderabad folks,

Is there a one stop shop for buying the recommended stuff here?

I am not sure if I was the only one who was facing issues with finding Waxpol products. But finally I have been able to find the distributor address. It was shared to me when I called the Bangalore numbers listed on their website.

G.S. Enterprises
No. 3/1, Old No. 66
Jain Temple Street, V.V. Puram,
Bangalore - 560004
Phone: 26621993/26679120

It's in a lane opposite to Mahavir Jain College in Basavangudi. The person there - Ramamurthy was very courteous and the prices were very reasonable too. He gave me the Carnauba Car Polish (250 gm) for 240 rupees; it has printed MRP of 315.

akbaree, come down to Indiranagar, CMH Road. You'll find MK Ahmed Retail. It's opposite Max Muller Bhaban. Go to first floor and pick up what you need.

I own a Tata Sarfari 2.2 - Mountain Green - for the last 1.5 years. The vehicle is being washed every alternate day by a guy who does a decent job.

I Wax it once a Quarter using Formula 1 Wax - and quite satisfied with the results. My concern is Minor Scratches on fenders and doors - which are caused more because of dust/ cloth swiping.

I am planning to go in for Eagleone NanoWax - and request feedback/ review of the same - couldn't find any mention of the same, throughout the thread.

Regards,

Ishlesh

Turtle wax is light green (pista I would say) in colour. Price seems high, though. I picked it up for Rs. 265 and am sure its the genuine article.
Put 1 coat on sometime mid feb, and still gleams and beads water even with all the abuse I put it through.

Aha! A question from the master himself!
Picked it up about 6 months back from Autogrid on CBI Rd, R.T Nagar.
Shop is right at the corner of CBI Rd & Bellary (BIAL) Rd. Its the basic Turtle Super hard shell wax.
Rudra da, your car care guide has been most useful.

Thanks for the response Roy.S, relief..!!! for me the pack contains polish in Pista Color as you quoted, as i was skeptical to buy online, but in mumbai i didnt knew where to buy so went ahead and purchased online.

I will be applying the wax on the car this Saturday as it is a holiday for me Hope will have a good exercise.

Sanjeev

Default Scratch Out

You can use scratch out from F1 for minor scratches. It works really well. Its a rubbing compound that you can take in a sponge or cloth and rub it in circular motions. Very effective on small scratches. Cost around 250 to 300

Default How to remove a clot of Cement from My 800



Yesterday morning saw a medium clot of Cement on the Roof of my M800, this was because some maintenance work is going on in our building.

I am totally clueless how to get rid of it, i tried water, oil and also tried scrubbing it, but all my efforts ended in ZERO results, i had maintained my M800 very well since last 10 years, and i am very much worried about the whole thing.



Now request the experts to give advise how to get rid of the cement which has cemented its position on the roof of my M800.

regards,
Sanjeev

How big is the clot? Is it just a mark now after your cleaning attempt? What's the colour of your car?

Hi Rudra Sir,

My Car is of Yellow color and the mark didnt reduce after scrubbing, only some part went off after scrubbing the rest is there, i can say that the mark is of around 2 to 3 cms in length and 1 to 1.5 cms in width
