I have a 1.8 Valvematic in our 62 plate Avensis, it's a peach of an engine; really smooth, torquey for an NA petrol, good economy for the size of vehicle, and no cambelt to worry on.

There's three levels of the 1050P, the top one comes with a 12m rubber hose, a dirtkiller, built in hose reel; it's a great machine.

If it's a month or two later, a hand applied paint cleaner and fine polish, like Blackmax or BH Cleanser Polish can give you a nice slick surface to re-apply your LSP.

You can also use a small pump in a water butt to give a pressure that your 1050 will run from.

You can put sealants or waxes over CP, either works well. My rough rule of thumb is that using CP loses you about 25% of the durability you would have had without it.
