    Question What have you done today?

    So I only just spotted this thread in the B5 section, and was wondering why we don't have one?

    What have you done today?

    So what have you been upto on your car no matter how big or small, post it up. Saves you creating a new thread just for washing your car!

    As for my own car, I parked it up into my garage pretty much right after ADI, and it's been dormant since. I did take it out yesterday however, just to give it a good clean. Didn't take any pictures though. lol

    I'll just post a clean pic of my car anyways!

    Not sure Dani... Got it terracleaned first and then he tried this new solution to get rid of the carbon but just turned it into tar... Then my pal used a few different solutions to see which was best.... I'll find out for ya...
