I have got a karcher same place mr gtd got his from bargain however I normally use bucket and sponge but looking at booth 11 pics I think I'm going to invest in some of this gear you guys have got :cool:

"SPONGE" please don't ever utter this word when used in conjunction with car cleaning ever again  :cry:

Get yourself a decent wool wash mit and a jet wash mate, they'll make all the difference to the finish, i'd suggest anyone thats got issues with their paint to spend a bit of time in the detailing section of the forum and have a read of some of the stickies, very helpful. :cool:

57% of its original cost price, not bad after nearly 4 years.
