    Yes we had it here too - really dusty rain - apparently the dust in it comes from the Sahara where the storm clouds gather, then they are carried north with the atmospheric conditions and fall in good ol' blighty!

    Feel your pain tho' :keule:

    On a slightly different tack, I did some respraying on an old mini the other day. Paint had a good 2-3 hours to go off, then it got rained on. Thought nothing of it at the time, came out the next morning and it's completely ruined the paint job. Where it had settled on the paint it's gone a much lighter colour, had to redo the whole job today.
    Now I know tap water would not have done this to new paint, so WTF is in the stuff falling from the skys these days?
