    Very nice LGB, I am liking the reflections off the car

    You car looks to be in excellent nick matey, nice one. Though maybe do a before and after set next time? You beat me to it - I was gonna attack the car with some cleaning gear but weather turned crap.

    Keep up the good work mate! Red

    Looks lovely mate.. Job well done! .. Perfect weather for it today.. Spent three hours washing, claying and waxing mine.. Very satisfying and they might actually stay clean for a while if it stays dry!

    Very nice car you have

    How long did it take?
    Spring driving weather is here, black does look the biz when it's clean. Itching to do mine but am moving house next week so have spent ALL day gardening.

    My back is killing me and my arms look like a lion has been using them as a scratching post.

    I will wash and wax before pitching up at my new house and making the neighbours green with envy - will have to drive there slowly so as not to get too much road/verge spray.
    Clear your heads and get ready to run.
    Remember, the best times are yet to come.

    Looks awesome mate, same car and year as mine, just different colour and I've not got an M-Tech bumper.

    I did clean my car today though, was perfect weather for it!

    Wash: Microfibre mitt & Turtlewax "Wash & Wax", not the best but cheap from halfords & ive always got good results from it, tried others, but always go back, AG shampoo for instance ive tried which i personally dislike very much!

    Polish: Megs applicator pad & good old AG "Super Resin Polish" - quick & always easy to remove.

    Wax: Some "Vauxhall VXR" labeled stuff made by Sonax, its a proper hard wax (which ive never used till now) not liquid, got it from work the other day for free so thought i'd give it a go!
