Showing my ignorance here, but have to ask, is the van sign-written, or, as seems most likely, have plastic decals? (Presumably it’s not completely wrapped)

If individual decals, how does the protection work, do you have to apply everything by hand?

Apologies for daft q's.

Van looks good, btw

Hi, yes the van is sign written and not wrapped. It makes it a pain in the a*#e as it all has to be done by hand which is why Iím trying to keep it looking itís best. Luckily apart from a bit of orange peel itís actually not bad considering itís a van

Evening all, no photos tonight but it donít look much different
Gave the van a quick wash tonight, I must say Iím very impressed by the Adams paint sealant! Not only does it still look good with excellent beading, it seems to stay very clean with any muck just rinsing away easily. Mileage has now hit 8178 it had an easy week last due to having a few local jobs Leicester

This weekend it got another clean, Adams sealant is holding up very well indeed and I will give this another coat coat soon as itís even on there nearly 3 months now.
Wasnít overly dirty despite to miles it has covered since the last wash, but all came off with ease standard routine of snowfoam followed 2 bucket wash and rinse down with filtered water, decided to do all three vehicles tonight just to see how long it would take including two of the three interiors
Mileage has also crept up too as this was done on Saturday evening.

Well a bit of a set back happened this morning, as I woke to find some scumbag had done this.....




I still havenít for the life of me figured out why anybody would want to nick 4 van wheel trims the bit that does concern me is the fact that they removed the cover of the handle, thankfully the alarm then started to go off so they legged it.

Just had reports that there where 3 Eastern Europeans parked at the end of the street on Friday evening walking up and down with a clip board, they where stopped and questioned by a local after they where seen having a very close look at another vehicle! Turns out 4 other 18 plate vehicles also had bits missing the same morning which included front and rear bumpers along with headlights etc. so it would appear I was the lucky one
