Not much to report yet as the weather has been awful

Couldn’t help but take a photo of this



First trip on the M25 in a few years, nice to see nothing has changed but very surprised they’ve not started charging for parking yet

Quick update time....

The van is filthy, it’s still not had it’s first proper wash yet and after clocking up 1200plus miles so it desperately needs a good clean

Had these delivered from Citroen, there where only a week late



They fit perfectly, as you would expect with genuine parts and some how make it nicer to drive



Also had these turn up from China, these only took 6 weeks but I only paid a £1 for them and that was including postage, so wasn’t really expecting them to arrive at all they have a nice feel to them and will be perfect for applying fusso to the van if I ever get round to cleaning it



I have also received my fuel card , unfortunately I still can not use it as the pin code comes separately

Got up early to give the fleet a wash, but seeing as this was the vans first time I thought it deserved a strip wash.



Got myself all set up



This is what we’re dealing with, although it doesn’t look as bad in the photos as it did in the flesh



All foamed up using Adams ultra foam



I then went over it with some Autosmart Red7




Now that it’s been decontaminated, it was time for some protection but seeing a this was a van I didn’t want to use a wax. I did think about using fusso but as it can be a pain to remove sometimes I thought i’d give the Adams paint sealant a try



During



After



Very impressive stuff and extremely easy to use, will definitely use it more often and will probably only use this on here.
Next up was this little lot to finish off



And now for some finished photos





All three parked up and beading nicely in the rain



I also gave the inside a wipe down with some ODK cabin along with a quick hoover out, I then found a spare Adams air freshener so hung that in the back also

Very nice, not tried the paint sealant, but looks good.

How did you find the strip wash ?

Great work mate! Doing the trims really creates a great contrast.

I used some DLUX on Miss Eskimos Mini Cooper trims and they have stayed looking as great as that for over a year since I applied it, so would recommend a ceramic if you fancy a change!

The paint sealant is so easy to use, although I’m told the new one is even better
Not really sure about the strip wash as I don’t think there was anything to strip although it did leave the paint squeaky clean and it foamed up nicely
