I have become (needed to) more of a lurker now than being active, mainly due to health (mild depression) which leads to me wanting to buy everything everyone is talking about. I have also seen a decline in the number of posts and also the decline in replies. I myself have created posts 60+ views and not one reply .

Also a few things that p'ing me off, is when you ask advise on a particular product, why does everyone have to start recommending something else?? If I'm after a recommendation I'll ask for it. Also the showroom pics is mainly of new cars, and mainly showing the finished article. No before/after, 50/50 shots, etc.

Post's like the one below, are what it's all about to me. A 14 year old motor, being detailed/corrected and then being able to say "wow I just did that"

it Doesnt look like that any more


and that is before i replaced the rusty passenger front door,, and before what is left of the alloys got a Proper refurb

never mind the insides ,,


found when removed the cup holders, as there was a bit of "doesnt look right" around the edges,,



But if a 14 year old volvo is of interest, i can whop a thread up,, but i dont have may "before" photos as it was That bad (see the cup holders ) that going and getting phone or camera before starting ,, oh hell no that is getting seen to NOW

rear drivers side foot mat,, lifted it and found what i "hope" was a dried in milkshake, (at best,) or toddler chuck at worse,, that was Not being left to go get a camera and take pics Just incase it really wasnt spilt milkshake,,
This would be an ideal thread, real cleaning detailing...(hint hint)!!

If i remember rightly, didn't he get married about a year or so back? I think he was also heavily involved in a school project racing car - electric if memory serves.

I would love to see that volvo in its own thread. Its not rocket science to make a new car look good. No real fun in that. The art is in the older cars that have been neglected being brought back to life.

This summer has been amazing for outdoor activities that dont include detailing. Been loads of times ive had to stop working on the car because the sun got too hot. Seems strange to moan at the sun when we rarely get any normally Just gets annoying when you have looked forward all week to detailing the car at the weekend only to get "sunned" off.
