    If any one is interested.
    I did my window rubbers on the weekend.

    The car needs a clean.

    If I wanted a plastic car I would've bought a Renault. I can see the uses for it though, there must be some cool applications for it. I still think the A3 looks best with shiny blacks a'la Black Edition, though.

    Used this stuff on my grill and its S**T!

    Anything that get on it (tar, bird poo etc etc) that is slightly sticky, just peels it off.

    It is a pain to clean with normal cloths.

    I went to the jet wash with mine last night and never had an issue cleaning the window rubbers I did on Saturday.
    Bit of pressure and some brush work, no problems.

    Wagner W665 or Bosch PFS 105 E.
    Any HVLP system should do the job.

    You got yours yet?

    All my kit is sat at home and at work waiting for me to collect.
    I've been working away this week and its killing me, I want to get home and play.


    Lads, a little thing I'm offering if any of you guys are interested.
