    Brave Jassy, otherwise she'd take it to the car wash if I don't do it and to be honest enjoy cleaning the cars. Rained after but never mind atleast all the mucks off.

    Well a stupid Scot went out and washed his car late this afternoon around half 2....windchill Zero degrees...snow foamed it then washed it.... Well all l say is Car Pro Hydro Lite 2 has as much staying power as a 16 year old virgin...good job av run out of it...wont be buying it again....Anyways an Executive decision has been made...l am going to coat the car come the spring...with a good ceramic coating or a Graphene coating as our Jon from the FDC is raving about, of course its going to get a full machine polish prior to application....keeping this car for another year...well...until the new Saloon arrives....lol

    I also watched the Graphene video by Jon @ FD. Very interesting, and Jon seemed very impressed by it. One to keep an eye on.

    I haven't done anything this week but I'm contemplating re-doing the protection as the beading 'slowed' down abit... I bought a DAS6 recently and I'm looking to apply some Menzerna power lock. However, there is still abit of the caranauba left on the paint, will it need removing before applying the sealant? Cheers!
