    Got round to giving the car a good wash today, including a wax over and a spray of demon shine after that... Took a few quick snaps outside the house but hopefully go for some of a good background later on once the sun drops a little bit ...











    Planning on going for a black roof soon, gloss black so it gives off a nice shine and also on the look out for a M-Power front bumper

    I was intending on doing that, I just don't know what to use?! Anyone suggest anything?

    Look at some of Autobrites products or have a word with mark... His Enhance and Euphoria are superb products and offer decent protection. You could even top it off with the "Seal and Protect".... I have tried them on a number of our cars and the protection id awesome.

    Longer lasting than some of the stuff that I have got from some automotive parts places and competitive pricing too...

    Think am going to use some of this hard wax I have, but going to leave it until later on fir when it cools down a little bit, it's a pain to take off but it does leave a good shine :-)

    I also use Collinite 476 and Autobrite Addiction hard wax. Find the Collinite hard to remove if the panel is warm...

    Oh good stuff!! The suns just going down now so some tea and then some wax again :-)
    What do you lot use on on the black strips around the windows? I have found mine have started to look 'dry' and I usually use AutoGlym back to black stuff, comes out like a green gel, but come to use it today and my brother has used the last bit so I took desperate measures used olive oil... I remember my grandad using it on the plastic guttering we have on the house and it's lasted! Haha. So I have used that for now until next time I get the shop to buy some AutoGlym ... Looks nice and restored, fresh and shiney ... Just hope it works, seemed to have worked on the mudflaps too so ..... For now

    Well I am very happy with the outcome of the olive oil!!! It's worked a treat, the black plastics around my windows and mudflaps still looks dark, clean, almost wet lpoking! And alot cheaper than buying AutoGlym all the time haha.
