Re: bowden's own

Havent used them as yet

No use polishing up the toyota, but deff intend to use them on the T series

They where at the FPV day and have seen them 1st hand on the Bowden collection. I dare say you would polish an orginal GT40 or Phase4 with anything bar the best!

Re: bowden's own

My dad only uses Bowdens products on his cars. He recommends them to everyone. I've used it once on mine & when my current car wash runs out I'll be buying bowdens too.

Re: bowden's own

I have seen the results of Bowdens own, and must say they look pretty good.
And the Cost isnt that much more than Meguires.
