    Last jobs are to get the side light bulb out of the head light, maybe polish the lights and clean and polish the wheels.

    Looking good.

    I've been busy cleaning my seats and doing bits for the MOT this week. Busy weekend!

    I'll wash mine closer to next weekend ready for the show :)

    How did you clean your headlights so well? It looks like you've polished the inside of the unit!

    Has a bird crapped on it yet? Always happens to me as soon as I put the wax away. Thinking of keeping a shotgun with my car cleaning kit...

    I've taken Thurs off to do mine. If it's raining I'll be hiding under the car port.
