Garage
Finally at long last

There finally seems to be a window of dry weather over the weekend and the early part of next week. With all this constant rain and flooding we’ve all had I can finally get down to prepping my car for the winter month’s ahead and before the gritters make an appearance on our roads. Usually I would have done mine by now. So hopefully where ever you live you to will get the opportunity to prep your car . I’ll be looking forward to trying Garage therapy’s Decon shampoo as I’ve heard it’s pretty good stuff. Will you guys be taking advantage of this window of opportunity in having a welcome relief from the soggy conditions?

Yeah I managed to get my car refusso'd and have yet to do my wife's car so a dry day or two is welcome news. However..... the first time you go out it will be covered in do dar because the roads are running in water and the farmers are busy transferring the fields onto the road. Oh happy days!

Genuinely made me LOL.

My kids bday party today and the venue has a filthy carpark, so won't be touching our cars until at least this evening, but I expect to be fried by then anyway!

Yup, i shall be doing my usual daily clean of the ‘comfy chauffeur e-class’

Although seeing as the weather this weekend is looking pretty good, I can spend a bit more time on her.

With winter coming, I may regret buying a white car!

Well I got out there in the end.

First time for about 3 weeks I think. Although it was "cool" out I struggled with water marks, the side that was in the sun is covered in streaks.
I don't usually struggle too badly with it, but this was the first wash since applying Kiwami, I usually use fusso.
