A couple of big Swedes get a bath...

As some may have seen on a recent thread of mine, my S60 is moving on to a new home and I've recently bought an S80. A couple of weeks beforehand my mate bought an S90 from the same garage. His hasn't been washed since he got it at the start of December and mine has done 1,000 miles since I last washed her...

Today was the day to give them both a quick wash and get them freshened up...

As you can see they were both pretty manky...














I'm afraid I've only got one progress pic, it was cold and I was on my own so really was just trying to crack on.

Process was fairly standard, Bilberry wheel cleaner, assorted brushes and sponges, BH PH Neutral foam, 2BM wash and a Master of Fibres drying towel to finish off with (which is the best towel I've ever used, there is a LOT of metal to dry off here and one towel easily soaks up one whole Volvo's worth of water)



Which left us with two vastly improved barges...













Thanks for looking

I checked to see what your forum name was first before I opened the thread, there it was as promised 2 big Sweedes getting all lathered
You know have two nice Swedish Beauties all nice and clean ready for action






Ps just don't tell the wife about any of this

So that's a good point. I'm CERTAIN that my browser used to just re-size them automatically to fit the window! It no longer does, and I thought it was just me

Is there a trick that I'm missing here, or should I just be resizing them to boring old 1024x768 before posting them and lose most of the resolution?
