Ive done it every other wash usually. The gloss and depth in the blue is miles better than my old one was just doing an occasional polish. Very impressed with it. Only takes a small amount per panel. I’m on my original bottle since getting the tractor in July.

I even did the manitou with it today. Brought it up very shiny for almost 3 year old and 2000 hours! :D

Does that Manitou do any work??!!! 🤣 Must be soul destroying when you have to muck sheds out or empty a slurry lagoon after she's that clean!

:ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: It’s not always that clean by any stretch, they are impossible to keep clean cause the mudguards are tiny and everything in the bucket blows back all over it half the time, but it gets a proper wash up and grease up regularly. It’s much easier to keep the tractor nice as it’s only me that drives it.

How do you apply it, spray on and cloth polish?

Spritz it on, have 2 micro fibre cloths, one to rub it in and one to just buff it dry.

It’s super easy to use.

Autoglym vinyl and rubber care on all exterior plastics and rubber surfaces, front mudguards mirror stems etc keeps them nice and black.

Have you used meguiars ceramic hybrid stuff? Just wondering if autoglym is better. (For car not tractor btw)
