Just managed to selflessly give the lads Punto it’s first wash and a quick squirt of BSD before the heavens opened. That paint needs a lot of work but as it was sunny when I was rinsing it off I got a tantalising glimpse of the purple/red flake in the black paint. Then it p’d it down. Looks like I’ll be doing my own in the rain tomorrow.

Just experienced a bite my tongue moment with an acquaintance who was asking how best to look after his new car because mine always looks so clean. He then said "I've just been looking at that detailing forum, what a bunch of nutters"! Bl**dy nerve. I think what he meant to say was what bunch of knowledgeable, dedicated, skillful happy nutters. And no I didn't enlighten him.

Trying to explain that the 'smoke' is to help get rid of the smell of smoke isn't going to be easy if this happens.
if that fails follow it up with the meguirs de oderiser spray can thing, it worked well for me when i brought my car that had been smoked in.

Thanks Andy; so far so good. No neighbours knocked on the door (the 'smoke' cleared after a while anyway). Faint smell of chlorine and a mix of Dr Leather wipes for now as I lowered the roof afterwards to clear the fumes.

Annoying that we didn't notice the smell when we bought the car; I guess it was because they'd had the roof down when they brought it across from their storage.
