Got the car prepped for Pistonheads Sunday Service at Bruntingthorpe while I had the time today. Usual routine + light polish with Dodo Juice Lime Prime and topped off with Collinite 845. If only the sun had come out properly!

Now I've just got to keep it this clean until Sunday morning  :laugh:




Stunning Dan  :cool:  Hope it does make it through to Sunday unblemished.

I'm with you in the sun coming out.  I've not got one pic of mine yet where the sun was out!!

Treated mine to it's latest bath and top up of LSP.

Snowfoamed with VP PH Neutral Snow Foam
Rines
Two Bucket wash with DodoJuice Born to Be Mild
Rinsed
CarPro Hyrdo2 Sealant on each panel
Rinsed
Autoglym HD Wax

Not been used much this year so didn't need a full decontamination, i'll no doubt do that in the summer when I've got a bit more time. Only got one photo as I only had my phone to hand.

Finally got my Nilfisk P150 pressure washer after 3 failed attempts.
First one had a damaged plug.
Second one had damage to the casing.
Third one, see above.
Not tried the fourth one out but it looks fine.
Apparently they are being badly handled by couriers due to their weight.
Hope it was all worth it in the end ( just need a car to clean now ) :sad:

Looks great in the official photos Dan. Don't know if I should be saying this, but the the little sporty red Renault Twingo looks quite nice too  :shocked:
