For light cleansing and feeding of interior leather, Raceglaze Leather Balm is simply brilliant, and relatively inexpensive. It is best applied using a soft microfibre pad, and then left to dry naturally for half an hour to an hour; there is no need to buff it down again. It leaves a very natural matt look (factory is the best way to describe it) and smells of brand new leather. When more intensive cleaning is required, Raceglaze also do a product called Leather Cleanse, which is designed to be used before the Leather Balm. However, in order to warrant this two stage process, the leather would have to be very grimey indeed. Moving on to the polish question, can you please confirm what HTE stands for please? It's not a term I'm familiar with, but if you tell me what it is chances are I'll be able to recommend a polish. :smthumbup

Lol, let's hope so, otherwise my technical knowledge is lacking! Assuming HTE was a typo, and assuming your working on an Evo by hand, here are a few suggestions for you...

Paint in good condition, just want to hide minor defects and improve gloss, then I'd suggest Poorboy's White Diamond Glaze on a light colour or Poorboy's Black Hole Glaze on a dark colour. These products fill minor marring and swirl marks and leave a glossy wet looking finish, which you then need to lock in with a decent wax or sealant.

Paint in poor condition, and you want to try to remove heavy swirl marks and light scratches, then I'd suggest a two step process, starting with Menzerna Intensive Polish to cut the paint back, then Blackfire Gloss Enhancing Polish to hide any remaining blemishes and maximise the gloss. Again, you will need to lock in the resulting finish with a decent wax or sealant.

That should set you on the right path, but if you have any more questions feel free to fire away.
