Well just been out and given my wife (and probably some neighbours as well) a good laugh - started to clean her car and then down came the snow and hail in a blizzard - along with thunder.

Needless to say I wasn't stopping and she has a clean car now, oh and tears running down her face from laughing at me so much

First wash for a few weeks

First wash for a few weeks, loving the Auto Finesse products. Rain stopped play half way through but managed to finish

Started to wash my wheels, did 2 and my pressure washer died.
Rest of the car now has to wait.

Any chance you could make the pics a little bigger?

Enjoy waxing my cars, don't get a chance to often enough now with a few toddlers running about. Going to order a ceramic coating for the wifes 5 series as its lsp game is weak at the moment and last night during the rain I drove past a black e90 that just had immense beading like you get the day you wax/apply lsp so anyway today I got the urge to lay down some protection so I thought I'd use up the last 5% of my soft 99 fusso dark. I autofoamed the 5 series, Used some autowheel on the alloys, used farcelea paint prep shampoo to wash to car, was about to grab some cleanser fluid but to be honest didn't know how long the rain would hold of for so even waxing was optimistic. Dried the car best I could, waxed, applied rain x and buffed. All done just in time for the rain, hailstone + sleet + snow. Never waxed outdoors usually in the garage but that's full and the slightly wet paint made the application effortless, let's see how it holds up, beading seemed great. Now to purchase a coating, got my eye on the 2018 gyeon range

Managed to give the car a fairly proper wash during lunch. BHAF pre-wash through a pump sprayer, rinsed with watering can, 2BM with Megs Gold Class(trying to use up the last of it), rinsed again and towel dried with CG After-Wash. It's the first semi-decent wash she's had in a few weeks now so she looks much better for it.

Wanted to get some wax on her but ran out of time. Will have to do that a panel at a time over the rest of the week I think. Only downer was I managed to drop my bottle of After-Wash and the spray head just absolutely disintegrated. Mercifully the bottle stayed sealed so I transferred the contents into a generic spray bottle I had empty.
