    Long day

    Thought I might try cleaning the car today as I have had it two weeks and was grubby when I picked it up.... a good scrub then......

    Turned the shed up side down looking for me car cleaning bits and other goodies.. a start!



    A lot of wrist ache later




    and clean, polished!






    I also found some hamerite in there from when I did astra calipers





    Then started on the inside, all in all 3.5hrs work..






    Not the best job as I had my 17 month old son helping me out, but still better than it was......

    Looking good, I'd recommend a decent wax rather than one that claims to polish as well as wax.
