Dry, mild and still, no excuses not to give the car a thorough going over!
Washed it yesterday once the wind dropped and this morning gave it a proper right sweat on elbow grease polish. 20190210_104755.jpg
I was under it at New year to sort any likely corrosion areas and odd spots of corrosion starting, the good going over I gave it at the back end of last year has lasted well. This morning it still looks good. 20190210_100902.jpg

Who ever recommend the meguiars tech wax I must say thank you. My car has never seen a clay bar, and today was quick snow foam hand wash and then tech wax. Never used a wax so easy to apply before, and very happy with the results, took about an hour to wax whole van

I also bought one of these tool bags to keep all my car cleaning stuff in and easy to move around, it's pretty neat. This buying cleaning stuff is addictive, I need a clay bar and some fall out remover now. 😁

That’s not a bad idea. I’ve got bits of stuff everywhere

I was in B&M picking up a new bucket and seen it and thought that would work really well and it does.

Can even fit the snow foam lance in side pocket, so when it's cleaning time just need that bag as it has snow foam, shampoo, wax, sponges, cloths etc already in there

Very decent for £12
