    My runabout nice and clean

    I bought a Punto diesel a few months ago as a run around so my Astra could then become a second car.

    As you can see I wont lose it in a carpark as its quite a bright colour Its a pearlescent orange sort of colour.

    Gave it its second clean in 3 years today as I had a bit of time.

    The previous owner had had it washed about 8 months ago when it had a bit of paintwork done, I gave it a quick wash when I got it 3 months ago and now (After all the salting has finished on the roads) given it another quick clean.

    Was literary washed with Megs Gold class shampoo and dried. When I have more time I am going to give it a good clean and spend the day on it as its covered in tar spots and stuff.

    I think it came out quite well







    You can see the flakes in the paint really well:


    And all 3 in a line all clean

    The Punto is quite nippy (As its a 1.9 tdi) but still has less than a 3rd of the power of my black Astra

    Nice colour that, the mate used to have a 3door in that colour. Was lowered with some Khans on, looked superb.

    Looks great Lee, love the colour.

    Shame you didn't treat it to a professional detail like you did with the Astra lol.

    Thanks for the comments.

    The Astra is Laura's (My wifes) and the Zafira is a neighbours.

    Monty a full detail on that would cost just slightly less than the car cost me

    This is Lauras (Has the Irmscher kit fitted):
