Given the weather down here there's not much point in doing anything like that.

I did mine last weekend whilst the weather was good and I had some time, just hoping it stays clean now and the birds keep away!

Well, Andrew, in the fine weather up here, i've snowfoamed, washed, clayed, machine polished glazed and waxed the car. In fact I had to out the car under shade as the sun was too hot and left water marks before I could dry it off after each stage.

It's fine here too - can't see what the issue is the weather: it's been sunny up north for weeks

I spent 2 days at mine!

Rinse, snow foam, rinse, clay, wash, dry, machine cut, polish & glaze, waxed twice and polymer sealed. Then the wheels - a wash and seal - plus the tyres and black trim. Inside hoover and polish, as well as the Woolies leather treatment for the driver's seat.

Then it p***ed down with rain and the effin' flying vermin (AKA pigeons) s**t all over it!

Default Eh? What? What's up?

I'm sure I've got something on this weekend, but I can't for the life of me remember what it might be....

Must be my age...
