Now, I get asked a lot, which filler glaze/product to use. And now that Auto Finesse sponsor this section, I thought it best to post a picture of how well AF Tripple works..

I don't really need to say much, as the picture speaks for itself..

Tripple is a cleaner polish with fillers and a mild sealant, so an All In One [AIO] product. It cleans well, fillers stupidly well and puts down a layer of sealant, perfect for topping with a wax or non Nano Sealant, such as tough coat. Tough Coat over Tripple looks amazing on blacks by the way :)..

Keep looking at getting some tripple, How well does it compare to SRP (presume is very similar?)

With a 50/50 shot like that it would suggest a machine.

Thanks for posting up your thoughts on Tripple Rob


Here's some more info and a product showcase on Tripple, there's good reason for it to be one of our best sellers :D

Tripple is our all in one, polish, glaze & wax, its ideal for cleaning up tiered paint when times tight, or for polishing, glazing and waxing door jambs & underbonnet paint up, as it removes water marks with easy.

Anyway, here it is in action on our little Mini test panel, basically showing its polishing and glazing abilities :

just had a nose at this on DW James said;


Yes that was just by hand, it can be used by DA if you wanted to, but not by rotary,

As i said its a mixture of polishing to remove them and glazes to fill.

Tripple is £7.95 for 250ml or £12.95 for 500ml

My pleasure James..
I applied via DA on speed 3. It can be applied by hand, as above.
As for a comparison against SRP, Tripple is mile ahead in it's abilities. Probably one of the best fillers out there. Paint is nice and slick after too, ready for a sealant or wax of your choice. I like Tripple and Tough Coat as a combo :)..

Is that the bonnet you use at shows James, if so, I hate to imagine how many layers of wax it has :)..

Yes it does have very very fine micro abrasives in that generally will work along the lines of rounding edges of swirls off then leaving the glaze to fill the remainder. Its what a product should do , it means that light cannot hit an edge but bounces off at a variety of degrees which in turn combined with filling leaves an almost corrected apperance. The other main thing is it doesnt dust like srp , its filling ability is on a par and we all know its srp,s strongest point but Tripple blows it away on looks. Ive sent a long email off to Autofinesse stating if they could product a product that works aswell as tripple in its glazing abilities without the final lsp installed it would probably be in gallon drums in my work area. I do believe they are working on something now along these lines..

Yer, one of three, this is the one that goes on the "try before you buy table" at the indoor events, its a little swirled up right now, im going to strip it all back and correct up half before wax stock and leave the other side to demo Tripple on. :) The MK2 bonnet is the worst right now im trying to get it to fade before the show but my best efforts are failing right now :(

It has DAT, micro diminishing abrasives yes, thats the key to a good AiO ;)

Just take it to your local £5 car wash a few times, they should get it suitably dull...
