    Why does it always rain when I'm cleaning the car?!

    Honestly,

    I've been in and out like a yo-yo today, rain, sun, rain, sun. Why can't it just be overcast and not bloomin' rain?!

    It's looking good at least! Just need's a coat of Pete's 53 and I'm done...

    Once it's stopped raining....

    Well Gaz,

    I did as you said and went out and cleaned it in the rain!

    Anyway, here's the results:

    (Sorry about poor picture quality, its the best my phone could do! But it looks better in real life!)







    I used:

    Auto Rae Chem snow foam
    Some turtlewax car shampoo (i've not bought anything proper yet ) with a wash mit
    Poorboys Wheel Sealant on the wheels (obviously...)
    Chemical Guys - All-in-one polish (which was OK, but I don't think it's a good enough substitute for seperate products, but I'm lazy!!)
    Pete's 53 Paste Wax to finish off.

    And it's either going to stay sunny for the rest of the day, or it's about to absolutely chuck it down!!

    Hope you like!!

    Steve.

    I know White isn't good for keeping clean, but black is probably no better!

    It's dirty again now and I only did all that yesterday!!
