Morethanpolish News and Reviews

In commemoration of the latest Star Wars movie release, Japanese airline All Nippon Airways made headlines recently when it covered its fleet in Star Wars-themed livery.

The airline’s Boeing 787 Dreamliner has been re-imagined to look like popular Star Wars character R2-D2, paying tribute to the latest instalment in the franchise, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will hit UK cinemas in December.

While it may have seemed like something of a brazen marketing move, there’s no arguing that it certainly attracted attention, which proves just how much of an effect a simple design change can have on a number of industries.

No industry knows this better than British motor racing, and fans may even see their betting odds affected this Formula 1 season thanks to a few changes in paintwork. In February, Red Bull announced that it was to strip its former ‘quirky’ race livery, which was known for its distinct swirling patterns in black and white.

Red Bull’s team boss Christian Horner assured fans that they would not be disappointed, because the new design would be “even stronger.” However, despite a number of design changes including changes in direction of air flow, it would appear that Horner could not keep his promise: Renault, who provide engines for the Red Bull team, are currently in danger of losing their contract with the team after engine failures caused drivers to falter at the recent Chinese Grand Prix, leaving Daniel Ricciardo in eighth place.

It seems that errors in design have a far bigger effect on drivers than we once thought – prior to the start of this year’s Formula 1 season, McLaren announced a change to its design, citing a new chrome paintwork as one of its biggest changes. The Woking-based manufacturer claimed that chrome helped to “make cars stand out” amongst other Formula 1 drivers, even in low lighting conditions.

Indeed, McLaren is standing out this Formula 1 season – but for all the wrong reasons. Though we’re just a few weeks into the races, neither of its drivers, Fernando Alonso or Jenson Button, have managed to score a single point. Could these modern changes be to blame?

It has now emerged that Renault, if they do not lose their contract with Red Bull, are planning to paint their fleet yellow, helping to improve visibility and hopefully score the team some points. If Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg’s helmets are anything to go by, it’s certainly a winning colour – whether or not the same can be said for paintwork, remains to be seen.

Zymol Valeting Service takes off - April 2008

Demand for our Zymol Royale valeting service shows the demand for premium quality services for top marque cars. This month we have treated a Ferrari 612 Scaglietti, 360 Modena, Porsche Cayenne and 911 (993).

Morethanpolish Press Release 18 January 2008
Morethanpolish are proud to become the newest Zymol Authorised Reseller
Since 2003 Morethanpolish Ltd has supplied owners of sports, classic, modern and luxury cars with sound advice and fine products. Now Morethanpolish can supply owners with the ultimate – Zymol handcrafted waxes, cleaning and protection products. Zymol is accepted as the best by the owners of the most loved cars in the world.
As a leading Swissol/Swissvax distributor since 2003, Morethanpolish resigned their distributorship on 7 December 2007 due to changes in operational and commercial arrangements imposed by the UK Swissvax Importer. At this point Morethanpolish was delighted to take the logical step of advising its customers to switch with us to Zymol, the undisputed market leader.

Morethanpolish MD, Mark Wibberley commented: ‘Zymol has always had a clear vision and is a truly partnership-focussed company. Over the past couple of years during conversations with Charles Bennett, founder and CEO of the Connecticut based Zymol Inc, I recognised that Zymol is led by a serious car enthusiast and as such has similar values to my own company, Morethanpolish.

‘Morethanpolish is an advice driven company, not a ‘car care supermarket’, so we like to spend time talking to customers about their cars and advise on the most suitable products. We attend over twenty car shows and club meets a year and have thousands of customers, especially owners of sports and prestige marques, such as Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Bentley and Rolls Royce, who provide us with positive feedback about our service on a daily basis.’

Zymol products are well proven and need no introduction to serious connoisseurs. Products include car shampoos to preserve the natural oils in your paint preventing oxidation and dulling, cleansers to remove embedded dirt and road film, carnauba waxes to protect your paint and everything you need to maintain the exterior and interior of your special car. The full range of Zymol products are now in stock and orders are being taken for next day delivery

Alex Aldous used the Race Glaze service on his very rare pre-war SS Jaguar this autumn and was thrilled with the outcome. Already used to preparing the car to a good standard himself, as it is highly in demand as a wedding car, he reckons the Race Glaze valet transformed the car and it has never looked better. He commented, It is simply a fabulous result. The Race Glaze detailer was professional, helpful and completed the valet on time. I would book again and recommend the service to others.”

Convert your hosepipe into a versatile pressure washer & shampoo mixer
For a bargain £27.99 this spray gun slips on standard hosepipe connectors to replicate the power of a jet washer, without the hassle of power cables.

It’s powerful, shooting a jet straight and level for 20+ feet, rugged, flexible and simple to use.

It has 9 (nine!) different spray patterns allowing the correct spray for different parts of your car when washing wheels, engine bays and bodywork. Each setting allows variable pressure adjustment.
By capillary action your shampoo is drawn from the 100ml chamber and mixed to spray on your car.

A simple knob alternates between clean water and foam so that you can wash the shampoo straight off when you wish, reducing streaking. Ideal for generating a ‘snow foam’ effect, the chamber holds enough shampoo for 8 minutes continuous usage.

Plastic rear screen? Hindsight could give you a clear view
If you have a plastic rear screen, the chances are that its condition will deteriorate over time, to leave a scratchy, milky surface through which visibility is limited. Of course one option is to replace the screen – expensive and potentially leaky!
But Hindsight offers remarkable cleaning and restorative power that removes scratches and milkiness leaving a clear rear view and continued protection against further deterioration.

This patented solution, available from Race Glaze works in two easy stages. Step one penetrates the plastic, restoring suppleness and preventing cracks and splits. Step two finely polishes out surface scratches. Much cheaper than a new screen!
