    im working every day through to half 7 saturday evening so even if i cleaned on saturday it will get road dust from saturday evening but at least ill be in a good situation for a quick detail on sunday when at aitp, i even bought a new bottle of autoglym quick detail for the clean and ive almost used the fecker up, what do you people use to clean the glass, i used autoglym fast glass and a microfibre cloth for glass but that was a waste of fecking time so i did it again with mr muscle window and glass cleaner and some plenty kitchen towel = much better result

    Any glass cleaner such as mr muscle with newspaper to clean up usually gives best result, am not going to make much fuss with my car as I have a few scuffs on the front and rear bumpers which I don't have enough time to change them. So I'm going to use up a bottle of T-cut on Saturday after the car wash see if I can get some good enough results lol

    Doubt I'll even have time to throw a bucket of water over mine.
    Off to Bristol friday after work, saturday I'm fitting a new sump, oil pump and hopefully new clocks.
    If that all works out with no issues I'll be heading off to the hotel saturday at some point.
    I might have time to swing past a hand car wash or late night jet wash and give her a once over.


    Its not all about shiny cars though is it?

    Same here.
    By the time I get to AITP I would have clocked up 2k miles in the last 2-3 weeks.

    Want to do mine if I swing past?

    I'm coming up now... But not in my car :(

    But in this :)

    IMG_2734_zps18928272.jpg

    It's a beast of a TT!! Full stage 2 with pretty much everything inside racing spec. Think its about 320bhp at the mo but could be wrong.


    Going up with some of the TTForum chaps that live near here. Will pop by the ASN stand... Expect I will have my Advanced In-Car Jacket so feel free to stop me :)

    Glad to see mine wont be the only one that's not spotless. Was worrying about it looking a mess. Will also just be popping to the local hand wash for a quick clean.

    Last year there was a massive black tent and ASN flags.
    Keep an eye out for that.

    I think the marshals should be able to guide you to the ASN stand.
