All things being well (including me) i'll see you sunday complete with kettle, stove, fridge etc! :wink:

Sorry for the silence...Our Virgin Media broadband (and TV service) has been down since the 16th.

The clutch has started to slip on the Diesel Coupe (I just knew it was going to! ) but we still plan to bring it tomorrow.

Have a great time folks - unfortunately, circumstances dictate that I can't make it (again)

I've been waiting for that storm since yesterday when i gave mine a very long (and thorough!) wash, including the engine bay! (Discovered another oil leak :x :cry: )
Still need to buff the white powdery residue from the wash'n'wax off the body, polish the chrome, do the interior and the things that a spray cleaner/polish is used for.

I know what will happen - i'll just get it all done and looking pukka and the heavens will open!
Cheers,
Dave

Try using Meguiars next time Dave no silly white powder after you've finished and cuts the time down by half. I swapped over to their products from AutoGlym a while ago and now wouldn't use anything else

I'll give that a try Steve, thanks. Used a Euro Car Parts wash'n'wax thing as it came in a special offer cleaning pack i bought. Not over impressed with it to be honest although most of the other things in it were quite good - the wheel cleaner for example. Someone thought i'd fitted new wheels to it yesterday after using it to clean the wheels!
Have to confess to not having done much since my last post - maybe for the best as i don't want to knock myself up for tomorrow.
Cheers,
Dave
