Default Overdue wash

Gave the old girl a long overdue wash today as the sun made a rather rare appearance up here, clearly biased but I think it's not bad for nearly 16

Looks stunning Brian!


Whenever I see your car, with its black 'chrome' bits, I'm reminded of Johnny Nice Painter:

"It's all black!"

As it's a great day in bonnie Scotland thought I would wash a few 1000 miles of road dirt off too before the MOT tomorrow.

I always wash any car before an MOT, I see it as a courtesy to the tester, the very least one can do, and preferably wash it the day before not 5 minutes before going in so that it has time to dry properly and not drip all over him lol
