    Gave the 888 a wash

    gave the 888 a wash 2day, and didnt even need to wax, those layers of jetseal and colly 915 do their job for sure, although may apply some blitz later, to really bring it up, but needs a front end respray soon, as bonnet and splitter full of stone chips,si dunno wht bothering 2 wax it up, as will be stripped off for respray,lol

    Looks good mate. The joys of a good wax

    Can see the stone chips badly in this pic, to the left of the grille

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    well prefoamed and washed the 888 2day, as shes going away for a month or 2 while i get funds to do whats needed in terms of upgrades.
    just ordered a new vxr front brake setup,got a 3" precat and centre section on way, now need to save for rest of bits, so tucking her away for a month or 2.
    foamed with
    PH Neutral Snow Foam




    shampooed and dried, so time to tuck her up



    no wax as will get the g220 out and give it a gd polish and a few coats of my usual stuff.

    nite nite 888
