Not really sure about the strip wash as I donít think there was anything to strip although it did leave the paint squeaky clean and it foamed up nicely
Cheers mate

Might have a look into both of these, have a new Adams wash pad I'm looking to pass on, so might sell it first and then put funds towards these

Do you not like the wash pad? I will definitely getting some more once these are used and the paint sealant is supposed to complement the guard and gloss which I already use.

Im not surprised it went wrong at Kings Cross, thats St Pancras!



It does share tube stations though but its a rabbit warren and if you don't know it can be a pain in the a*se.

It was a warren with far to many people trying to get down the holes!

Mini update about my travels today, I’ve left home in Market Harborough at 6am traveled down to the office at High Wycombe, then to Reading, Winchester, Aldershot then back to High Wycombe and finally home for 6:20pm.

Clocking up the miles now, think it’s now past 2000 on the way home and I get to do it all again tomorrow.

Nipped into Halfords tonight to see if there was any fabric protection and came away with this.



Now I know it says itís for awnings and tents but after checking the small print on the back it says it can be used as a stain guard on fabrics plus cos I used my Halfords voucher it didnít cost anything so nothing to loose

You wonder how on earth they make any money at that price.

I bought a cheap watch from china, IIRC it was just under £4 delivered!

Managed to find a couple of mins to get the inside cleaned out today quick hoover and a once over with ODK cabin, I then decided to get a couple of jobs done.

Needed a carpet to stop the few items I have in the back from sliding around all the time.



Also managed to do a popular little modification to allow the seat to go all the way back, which is to relocate the ladder frame further back and making use of the load tie points.





Thereís now a lot more room for my legs now, I donít understand why they do this as itís not made much difference to the load space.

Got a strange day planned tomorrow with a lot of waiting around late morning for deliveries, so Iíve put a few bits in the back so I can give it a wipe down whilst Iím not doing anything

Gave the van some love today as it was looking a bit tired, although I have been keeping on top of it by wiping it down with waterless wash it had got to the point where it needed a proper wash.

Forgot to get a finished photo but as you can see it was a bit dirty



Seven weeks of ownership on Tuesday and nearly at 7000 miles



As you can see doesnít look to bad



Lots of fly splats



and grime from the last week



Wheels had taken the brunt of it, with the brake dust build up



All washed with Adams products, then dried with Adams guard and gloss and finished off with Adams VTR and tire shine

Now for the finished photos, which arenít looking to bad
