    Astra polished ready for M.O.T

    The car will be going for an M.O.T this Thursday. Here she is after I gave her a weekly polish. She always has five polishes, but today I gave her three as I was very knackered.

    Nice and shiny, good job there!!!

    How many times a week do you polish it?

    Wouldn't it be better to just polish it then wax it?
    Astra sold ... replaced with a Skoda ... soon to be replaced with another Vauxhall

    I have been known to polish her every couple of days, but its weekly I clean her up. I did use Autoglym Resin, Turtlewax and Autoglym HD wax on her today. I've used it for the past few months. I have to correct myself, I always use the word polish instead of wax.

    I think that's one of the shiniest MK3's I've ever seen.

    she's looking lovey there. My mk3 is also looking (and feeling) beautiful again, I set Matt to washing her at the weekend for me with the snow foam and meguiars. Got a minty fresh MOT now, as well as new discs, pads, shoes in the rear drums, new bottom arm on one side, new braided hoses, welding done on the bulkhead, the last of the nice new black GLS interior fitted, 2 new tyres and now she has a matching set of alloys on again (unfortunately they're the 14" vauxhall CDX alloys not my 15" wolfraces )
