    I finally got the chance to give my car a MUCH needed wash today, as it had been over 3 weeks since the last one and with the amount of rain we've had lately i could hardly see out the windows!

    I was planning on giving the car another coat of Vintage but the car looked great once it had been dried, a real credit to the Vintage as you can get an idea of how dirty the car was from the below pic:

    [​IMG]

    That was after 4 pre-foams!

    So once i had dried it with the leaf blower (after sheeting water off with a watering can) i just gave the wheels a quick coat of sealant and dressed the tyres :)

    Its a bit overcast here at the moment so some pics look a bit dark but i couldnt be arsed to play about with my camera settings as this post is mainly just to show off the new wheels, which i have to give Chris a big thank you to for doing me a VERY good deal on them, cheers mate :thumb:

    Car looks stunning Clark, really like leon's on CH's!!

    Do you recommend getting a leaf blower then?? One thing i hate doing is drying the car with a towel, plus the water dries so quickly :(

    Yep, Zymol Vintage is what i use, comes in at around £1800 for a tub :)


    Leaf Blowers are the future! especially when your car has a decent amount of protection on it, the water beads off very quickly and you get a streak free finish, the pics of my car above were from the leaf blower and nothing else, the car wasnt QD'd or anything :)

    Ah ok Zymol Vintage...i need to remember that..actually nah £1800 for a tub is too much, i no way can afford that! Looks like it does wonders though! I used to use Mer on my old car it was ok i guess, now as good as yours though!

    Car looks very slick, gorgeous. By the way what dressing did you use on tyres, they look very wet...

    what make is the leaf blower?

    I think the neighbours will consider phoning the nearest mental hospital if they see me use one of these - they think im mad enough about cleaning my car!

    Probably the best one to go for. I went and bought a 2500watt flymo job - its too heavy to use gently around the car and makes too much noise. My neighbours think I'm even more odd than before.
