Looking good, red looks fantastic when fully cleaned!

Agreed, don't do any wasting with them now - save your hands as well with certain products!

Thanks Jim :smiley:

I'm not doing anything at the moment.  Not through laziness or because of the cold weather, although today was a bit less cold than the last few days, but because I've done something painful to my right shoulder.  Painful enough to require some strong painkillers and the services of a physio.

So I've been idly watching rugby on TV (great win for Quins this afternoon!) and surfing the interweb.  As a result I've stocked up on some goodies for when my shoulder isn't hurting - a blow dryer called a Bigboi (stop tittering at the back), a citrus pre-wash and some DodoJuice carnauba wax.

I'm very much looking forward to using them, particularly the dryer.  The honeycomb grilles on the GTI look good, but they're a royal pain in the backside to dry when you're cleaning the car.

Just a quick wash for the GTI today and finished it with a coat of Auto Finesse Glisten.



Then spent 4 hours on my wife's Mazda 3 as it has been neglected and need a full clay and some machine polishing. Pearlescent White and was suffering from yellow decontamination spots. Didn't get any pics of it as was dark when I finished!
