For times like this I reach for the likes of Carpro Hydr02. In the past 12 months I've spent very little time on my own car's bodywork. Spray on, pressure wash off and just leaves that little bit of...

It will have probably been baked in the oven following the paint and so I'd say that it would be fine to clay and polish.

I have the Slim’s stool/creeper above snd reckon it’s great. Can’t knock it for £35. Comes in handy when having a brew and a rest in front of my gas heater.

I have a tendency to make mine less foamy, I don't find that dense foam cleans any better and it just makes a huge mess on the path and driveway.

If arranging any viewing, I don't provide my postcode/street name until I know that they they are in the locality. I don't specify the door number either. If anybody queried why, I'd tell them too.

Not short on pace and should feel nice and punchy with 450nm of torque.
