    Its started!

    Its only Tuesday but the mass clean up has begun!

    I've been out tonight and done the inside of the car although I'm not completely finished as I was beaten by the fading daylight.

    Anyone else been sad/enthusiastic enough to start the cleaning spree already?

    I have hoovered, polished all the inside plastics and windows. Then cleaned all the alloys, and then washed the car, and then polished the bodywork with Meguiars gold class. Then i did all the black trim on the car with Meguiars trim detailer.

    This was all done on Saturday. Sunday it rained. Monday it rained and today it rained, plus we had a ship in at work so the car got covered in cement dust. Oh well, i should be able to get it done again this Saturday.

    Given the inside of mine a bit of a spiv up today, and gave the outside a wash too. Will prob wax it closer the time, but at the end of the day....it's a car. And will probably get used every day up to the show.

    Bring it over to mine on Saturday morning hun, I have another stowaway popping over too so we'll give you a hand cleaning it if you like. Then we can all go up to the Pod together in the afternoon.
