I still have a half a bottle of Autoglym Super Resin Polish along with 50 other brands I've tried, lol. For me, Meguiars NXT 2.0 filled in swirls a little better. I think for flat out gloss, Liquid Glass smokes them all, but doesn't do jack for swirls so prior swirl prep needs to be done before Liquid Glass. Liquid Glass is by far the most durable too. Dawn Ultra dish soap won't even take it off in one washing, lol. But it's also harder to apply and remove. For an easy one step do-it-all wax, I still like Meguiars synthetics. Now that you reminded me of Resin Polish, I'll have to try it on a scratched/swirl area just to revisit and see. But I remember NXT doing a better job at filling swirls...

AGHD is a very nice wax. I have two tubs lol. I haven't tried SRP though as I don't care for glazes.

Polish doesn't fill in scratches, it corrects them. Waxes and glazes can fill in minor imperfections. Nice work. Car looks awesome!

I own my own detailing business.. I know this lol, but SRP isn't a true polish. It's a glaze.

Looks great.

The best indicator to when to wax a car is when you notice a significant degradation in the water beading after washing or you notice the paint doesn't have the 'pop' it did after a fresh coat.

AG HD Wax is fairly durable and will likely give you at least 2 months of solid protection before showing any signs of degradation.
