    My Evo !

    Cut a long story short:

    Rinsed with water only. Then water and brush only. Then soap and washing mit. Rinse and dry with Chamois Leather.
    Clay bar all of car. Then soap and washing mit again followed by another rinse and dry with Chamois Leather.
    Finally polished with Mer.

    and I'm knackered !

    Did you need step ladders to wash the roof Olly? :)

    Looks very clean bud, and very bright! :cool:

    I think V's and VI's are the nicest and purest Evo's going! Looks mint in white with those mag wheels.

    The latest ones are very refined, you can use all the power and drive the nuts of the thing, Evo 5/6's are raw in feel, scary to drive infact, but gives you a buzz after each drive in my opinion. :racer:

    yeah i think thats it, the 5 and 6 are very "RAW".....no refinement. the later ones have too many creature comforts which detracts from the joy of driving them

    Very nice motor Olly, I'm sure you enjoyed yourself really!!!

    Looking forward to seeing your wash/dry technique becoming more refined in coming months - oh, and your choice of Last Stage product too LOL.

    Lovely car... awesome. But ditch the brush and chamois, and reconsider the Mer! Evo paint is very soft and thin, and brushes will damage it over time, as will wipe drying by chamois. Check this link for some wash tips...
