I'd recommend using synthetic products on silver - caranuba's best for making deep colours look really rich.

The Fiesta above was treated with Jeff's Werkstatt Prime and then Jeff's Acrylic Jet Trigger over the top. Both bought from polished bliss

Yes I was really chuffed with the way the Fiesta came out - was a shame to sell it!!

The best thing about the Jeff's combo is that it really brings the metallic flake out of the paint - looks stunning in open sunlight :)

Will have to try that once my auto glym stuffs ran out. I cant decide whether use super resin polish followed by extra gloss prot. or ultra deep shine with the extra gloss prot. Im thinking the super resin polish, as the ultra deeps for darker colours? unsure really

I'd go for the former out of those two options. I think you'll want to try the Jeff's ultimately though -

the sport has the chrome surrounds around the front grill, and this questions also relevant to the alloys. Iv brought some auto glym metal polish a while back, can this be used on the chrome surround and the alloys, as im unsure whether the alloys are laquered, as they are the standard ones that ocme with the sport, and so's the chrome surround. Dont wanna mess it up at the last hurdle!
