My DBP Amarok is now mostly white. My White Tig is now mostly black. How does that work?  :huh:

It's chucking it down outside, with winds of 40mph+.

I have decided that snow foaming would not be a good idea today.  The car had a good wash with lots of water sprayed over and under it due to Hampshire County Council's attempts to dispense their salt mountain over the roads, so having washed all of the crud and salt off on Tuesday, that will have to suffice for this week.

I'm awaiting Rebecca's post where she has a special marquee erected for the sole purpose of car washing, with under-car sprays using the finest reverse-osmosis spring water, and specially imported exotic snow foam which makes the plastered-on mud fall away, leaving the car immaculate and putting the rest of us to shame.

Again.

Why I’ve just set that very arrangement up!   The angel tear snowfoam is just about to go on.  :cool:

Or maybe I haven’t done any of that :grin:

Mine looks as per the last pics but now with added layer of encrusted mud, and another hefty helping of salt!  :cry:

Today was set for a really good wash, weather ideal, cool and cloudy with no rain until early evening. Managed to do the wash but by the time I got to the rinse and drying stage it was raining. Not too hard but drying was very tricky. Bugger :rolleyes:

I've seen the weather forecast for the rest of the week, and I literally won't be bothering.

I have, however, bought a couple of litres of Gyeon Bathe+, and Gyeon QD.  I never fail to be impressed by the beading from Bathe+, even a quick wash produces a really satisfying result.

Until next week, then.
