I think I'm just going to have to use either a car wash or the local hand car wash people. I'm just never going to get my car looking clean :cry:

Don’t give up - where there’s a will, there’s a way :smiley:.

Mine’s looking reasonably clean just now, if you look past the stuck on squashed bugs on the front, and the thick layer of dust on the roof and bonnet. I’ll be using it over the next few days when rain and thunderstorms are forecast in my part of the world, so it’ll soon look dirty.

Car clean is on my ‘to do’ list for the weekend or early next week.

Cheers SR. It's just so frustrating. The last wash was in January! Perhaps I'll pour some shampoo on it when the storms come :rolleyes:

Finally managed to give it a wash. Not my finest hour and really didn't enjoy doing it. Was after an early shift at work and it was rather humid. Plus the filth that came off was unbelievable :sad:. Still, it's looking a lot better (from a distance) but does need decontaminating and sealing. I'm seriously thinking about going down the ceramic coating route but there are a few stonechips to sort out on the front end first.

Don't look closely at the wheels, there just wasn't time today :rolleyes:

Looks good again @Watts. :cool:

Cheers, I had to rush it as we go away tomorrow and I do like the car to look reasonable before a long journey (or three...). The wheels need a lot of effort but if I decide to get it ceramic coated, the detailer can have that little pleasure :whistle:
