    haha cheers fella - it's not that hard

    hose car over to wetten

    wash with gold class shampoo - http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/sp...?pc=G7116&tp=0

    using lambswool wash mitt - http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/sp...?pc=A7301&tp=0

    hose down with water

    (wash again if required........usually good to do it twice though)

    then dry off with Supreme Shine Microfibre - http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/sp...?pc=X2010&tp=0

    then cake wheels in this > http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/sp...?pc=G9524&tp=0 vigarate all around with some old sponge and rinse with hose

    the some bit of sponge to apply the tyre gel (makes tyres blacker) - http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/sp...?pc=G7516&tp=0 - smells lush, like blackcurrant fruitella (use gloves if you don't want black fingernails for the next week, lol)

    then using an applicator pad > http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/sp...?pc=X3070&tp=0 apply the trim detailer > http://www.meguiars.co.uk/cgi-bin/sp...pc=G10810&tp=0 to all the black bits (grille, side skirts, wiper arms, aerial etc etc)

    perfect job for an afternoon

    Thanks for that Drew have just oredered some meguiars bits and will give my car a good clean at the weekend. I use to vallet cars in a previous life but there wasn't so much choice on the market as there is today.

    Were you wide open with the 70-200? Have you got a CPL? I have just got my hands on a 70-200 be it a 4 no IS and can't wait to try it.

    no probs don't have a cpl, but just doing some adjustments in photoshop enhance the colouring a bit and using shadow/highlights brings back some brighter reflections so it kinda appears like a cpl - some shots were wide open i think, to find out if you want, save the image then find it, right click > properties, then go to the summary tab, then click advanced.....in the focal length row it says the zoom value in mm

    Post The 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM Lens

    Recently got into the D-SLR craze my self recently.. splashed on a Canon EOS 400d, over the Nikon d40x. I could really do with a lens that has Image Stabilizer when I can't be bothered with lugging around a tripod.

    That f/2.8L lens certainly makes the difference... not a cheap lens thats for sure! I was looking into this type (70-200mm f/2.8) with the "IS" Image Stabilizer and it's a wacking 1244-1340 in the shops!

    Been shopping around for the following type of lens for my Canon.. 17-55mm F/2.8 with Image Stabilizer. To replace my crappy stock lens. Deals I got so far are 654-870. 463 if i took the risk to purchase it from Hong Kong. Still thinking about it....

    You still need a tripod especially with a 70-200. Get a tripod and use the self timer it is a must for car photography. IS lens's only give you a couple of stops, bump the ISO up a bit does the same thing but can get a bit noisy.

    I can highly recomend the 17-55 f2.8 IS, I use it as my walkabout lens. I bought a couple from Hong Kong but remember the import duty.

    A EF 50 f1.8 is a must for the money.
