Yesterday (Friday) I managed to use Bilt Hamber Surfex as a prewash then onto a shampoo wash using AS Duet because it was closest, dried off and stood back to admire......Oh no not happy, so got the DAS6 out and hit it with Prima Amigo (not every panel) and managed to get ODK Glamour onto a couple of panels, the rear quarters required a bit more effort and for this I used Meguiars microfibre cutting compound followed by Meguiars microfibre finishing wax....Wow this stuff is great, Now I know this isn't the normal way of doing things but it was getting flipping cold and the panels I did look great. I am wanting a tripod (can't decide which one) for my new camera and once I have it I will do some proper reviews (How proper a novice can get we will see).

Salt

Hosed the salt and sand off, my new driveway is starting to look like a beach.

Yeah it's not in its best lighting angle as you can see ( well you can't for I had to block that but too)
But you get the idea.


Actually it's red but that didn't look right so I used a totally opaque blocking colour
