Went to the local hand/brush car wash place.

Not to have anything done you'll be glad to hear, but to talk to them about me designing a new covered wash area and enclosed valleting bays.

I was just about to ban you from here Simon, but you just redeemed yourself.  Still, you are doing work for 'the other side'  :tongue:

If these places didn't exist, there wouldn't be as many swirled cars for the detailing industry to rectify. So in a way I'm helping to generate more business for the likes of Neil and Co. I ought to be on commission.
Red Mk6 gone replaced with a white Mk7 which has gone too. Green Mk2 here to stay.

Haha. It's a tenuous link, but full marks for your cheek!

You want a black roof to match Mrs'. But her car looks lovely and clean and hopefully has a full tank.  :wink:

Nearly a month since mine last done  :cry:  It's no longer Deep Black Pearl but Crap Grey.  When I'm walking back to it in the works car park, I'm tempted to keep walking, such is the state of it and my shame.  :cry:  Planning to clean it on Sat morning, unless the weather conspires against me.

Its true I have black roof envy :rolleyes:

The merc is all glass and it looks well, inside and out - The Golf looks somewhat unfinished in comparison, I've had a quote at £120 and I've seen it done to another car, I was about to pull the trigger on it, but now I know its 'so last year' I'm going to get the sunroof sprayed white :laugh:

Of course I filled up my wife's car - I do as I'm told :smug:

I'd go for the black roof to be honest. Think it looks good. When I was getting a Tornado Red Golf I was going to do the roof gloss black.

Cleaned mine again today after a week of driving round the rain and mud soaked roads of Rutland. Also cleaned the mother-in-law's Corsa which was sat next to it just because I had the time. Also want to see if she'll even notice! Haha  :wink:

Just a quick wash for mine today,before the inevitable rain. Snowfoamed with Valet Pro Neutral, rinsed off and washed with Dodo Juice Born To Be Mild (still love the smell of this stuff), rinsed again and resealed with CarPro Hydro2 and then final rinse off with a bit of Bouncers Done and Dusted (also smells amazing). Gave the interior a hoover.

Now just waiting for that rain.

Always the way isn't it. :sad:  Mind the rain should roll right off with your Hydro2 sealant on.  It's been raining non stop since the day I cleaned mine. Such is life.

Least you got the inside done too.  Didn[t get time to do mine last weekend, but desperate to try out the Metrovac I'm getting for xmas.  Never been so excited to hoover a car.  :laugh:
