Just celebrated a milestone birthday and feeling sorry for myself, haha.   

You're never 50  :shocked:

Yep, the half century is upon me.  :shocked: :shocked: :shocked:

Happy Birthday Booth!! Hope you had some fun :laugh: I too have that milestone to enjoy in a few weeks....

Thanks Watts, it was actually on 6th Jan but I'm still celebrating commiserating, lol.  Actually was a great one, celebrated it in the Maldives, and have just returned from a girls spa girls weekend, a birthday treat from some girlfriends.  Back down to earth now and the drudge of car cleaning, lol.

Pre-Happy 50th to you too.  :smiley:

Sounds like a great plan.  Can't fight it, might as well embrace and celebrate!  :smiley:

50 is the new 30 these days. With that in mind, I'm a mere 27.

Thanks for asking, it's sailed happily past 90,000 miles now. I'm very much in the school of thought that regular use is good for a car and high miles are not a turn off. 100k is a bit of a personal milestone  :smiley: :cool:

Afraid in the spirit of detailing not a lot has occurred over here recently! The car is looking quite sorry for itself inside and out an I can only hope for a mild Sunday that may give me chance to rectify the matter!

Used my new Autobrite snow foam lance / Nilfisk pressure washer combination for the first time today. Autobrite Direct currently have their heavy duty snow foam lance, plus a 1/2 litre of Magifoam snow foam for £34 (their normal price would be £50; £40 for the lance and £10 for the snow foam).

The lance looks to be really well constructed and I was surprised at how little of the snow foam I needed to use; about 1 cm in the bottle attached to the lance, topped up to about 400 ml with warm water. Made lots of thick, clinging foam and I didn't use all of the 400 ml. The foam was still thick and clinging 20 minutes after I applied it to the car - picture below. Sorry, no 'befores' or 'afters', but it was pretty dirty and is now nice and clean!

Very pleased with my purchase and foaming adds a new fun element to car cleaning!  :smiley:
