My DBP Amarok is that colour at the moment too. Tomorrow things may have to change.

Phew, that's better.

Cleaned? Didn't get around to mine. There's always another day.

This morning I have just treated the Mk6 to a wash and a quick spruce up with Zaino Z8.

The interior is filthy so that`s this afternoons task.

It`s about 7 deg. outside, so quite warm really.

Sorry Watts, no pics. since  Photobucket gave up on us and I can`t be bothered to sort anything else out.

Encouragement you say? Just look a Booths and that`s more than enough encouragement anyone will need  :whistle:

This aft, interior carpets hoovered, rubber mats and pedals cleaned and a quick polish of the tailpipes with Autosol.

Bloody Photobucket ripping the guts out of detailing threads.  :grin:  Just use postimages.org to upload and then copy/paste the hotlink for forums link. No excuse for no pics  :tongue:  :laugh:

I’m glad the abject filth horror of my R is providing much needed encouragement for some, yes you Watts.  :tongue:   Unfortunately, of late, I have matters than have proved a tiny bit more pressing than car cleaning and when not, the weather has buggered things up.  But such is life!  The DBP R will rise again like a phoenix!   :grin:

Had the pleasure of working on this... Didn't have any shine. Full machine polish with Koch Chemie M8 using my Flex rotary and then a coat of Swissvax Best of Show, ready for sale now...  :cool:
