Appreciated the work i put into freshening up the runaround yesterday.
Quick hit with megs MF coat of maxolens sealant and autobrites cherry glaze , unfortunately i never got wax on before the rain came but it beaded like it was waxed today and looked sweet. Still took 5 hours .

my Prism 5 scooter got her wheels cleaned with JTF £2.45 cherry wheel spray, a good shampoo with Mer, and a blast of Spray Wax from the pound shop. A good buff up with an old t shirt and she was all ready for riding around the block walking the dog when the rain stopped.

A damp sponge sorted the pavement spray and tyre mud when she got back into the garage. Shame I couldnt get to do any more to the car. It is taking weeks to clean this summer. So depressing. Rib

Today ( oh, well, yesterday that is ) I had to do a full interior valet on a Peugeot 307. The car had not been cleaned since new and had been sat for a few years - it was moldy, smelly and horrible !

Took me 7 hours to get it tip top again and I never even got to wash the outside of the car

But it was good fun and I do like a challenge
