    Washing in the rain

    Have at last got use of my neighbours garage (till Friday) I have just washed the car in the rain (got some funny looks) then dryed if off in between showers and then into the garage.
    Car is only 2 months old and although I have washed it a few times I really want to get a winter polish on it.
    I decided not to take up the dealers option of their 300 plus protective polish but even so I was shocked to find that under actificial light I had two long scratches on the top of both front wings.
    Bit of a relief to find that they are the remains of the protective transport gunk.
    Very surprised that I couldnt see them under daylight conditions and again most of the bodywork feels quite lumpy when doing the hand test so I guess Im going to have to clay it (bugger)
    Lets hope the weather gets better before Friday
