[concours] Autoglym Products?

There’s an outfit in Utah known at Motorcar Valet who is distributing
Autoglym products…cleaners & polish. Anyone have any fist hand experience
with these resin based products? Comments? Comparisons?

Thank you!

I have used most grades of Autoglym buffing compounds and resin glaze
with very good results. I have had equivalent results with Meguiars’
best products.

Thanks for the comments, Dick. I assume you mean the Meguiars’ Gold class?

They certainly have a market leading reputation here.
I personally use them all the time following a demonstration at
our local Jag club meet by their area representative. He handed
out everyone a bag with Fastglass Cleaner and the Resin
Polish.The ploy obviously worked in my case. I believe most car
manufacturers use these products at motor shows over here. You get
no white staining left on rubber and plastic, the polish dries
easily and seems reasonably durable. I have to admit though that I
am probably following the crowd here rather than having vast
experience of different makes.

Regards. No connection with the company other than a free gift
Bribe] as mentioned above, any more gratefully received.

Autoglym are based here in Letchworth UK. I use their products on my E
Type. The products I don’t like are the Tyre Black (it leaves your
tyres looking nice but it has an oily type film which comes off when you
touch it). I think the claim to ‘reduce rust’ on their car wash shampoo
is … confusing? The resin polish is good and so is the glass cleaner
(not the ‘fast glass’).

Hope this helps. Oh and this is just MY opinion.–

 The British magazine Practical Classics has rated some of their 
 products (specifically the leather treatment - they did a comparison 
 test on the interior of a P6 Rover) very highly - in fact I've been 
 looking for some and will again search for it when I'm in the UK in a 
 couple of weeks.

Bob,
Interesting to me that you should ask as I have been comparing Auto Glym
Super Resin Polish with my hands-down favorite, Medallion Premium Paint
Protectant. The Medallion finish remained rock hard and smooth for over a
year. The Auto Glym finish is already deteriorating after one month. No
comparison, in my view. Both were applied on clean oxidation free surfaces.

Just wondering if you used both the resin polish and the sealer or just the
polish?

Thanks!

Just the polish—The Autoglym is much easier to remove than the Medallion.
The trick with the Med. is to use a pre-washed terry cloth towel and turn
frequently.
