Having washed and polished lots of Trucks for shows,(I have prizes) I found the best way is,, wet the motor first, apply wash-wax with a pressure washer, then blow it off, reapply wash-wax, then get a sponge wash the Truck top to bottom, rinse, then microfiber it dry using rain water, then polish using auto-glymm super resin polish, then to keep the shine use the waterless wax from TV channel of choice.  For polished  stainless, soap and water then polish with waterless wax, or diamond White,. Windows use newspaper. For polished alloy, a mix of auto-sol and diamond White and lots of elbow grease. 

And the worst part is it takes forever, and it's a daily chore,, hence why I stopped doing it, just keep it clean now.

I scribble it down in green crayon, on the invoice from wherever I buy the bits, then store it in a box till I think, when did I last do that, or sometimes, put them in a plastic sleeve,then put that in a file, in the same box...

I think the guy who runs it took it down, due to lack of numbers, I think there was a post on here about it.

Doesnt really devalue it in my eyes, even if I found two Genuine GM NOS never used ones I'd be sorely tempted to replace the adjusters anyway as 'preventative maintenance'.  :y


I've just found a valeo mfl headlight, broken adjuster, that was replaced. under warranty.

Scrap hs2 and make it a 5 lane motorway, be cheaper, and a lot more beneficial., Also send it in a straight line so it demolish's large areas of Birmingham, London.  If that fails ask the Luftwaffe to come back and remodel London properly.. ;D

General Car Chat / Re: Saw a funny roof load today
« on: 20 July 2019, 13:10:38 »
When I was a boy,, Straw bales were never roped, just loaded correctly, 20 ton loads of bagged spuds 1/2 cwt bags, no ropes, produce was normally only covered with a sheet if it was raining, then eventually law changes and faster trucks loads were roped,  now days the authorities are going overboard with so called insecure loads in curtiansiders, lack of common sense.

would anyone stand on the hard shoulder of a motorway?

I regularly see people sitting in their broken down cars on the hard shoulder of a motorway (where we actually have any left and it hasn't been turned into a live lane) .. so.. yes?


Better to stand on the hard shoulder than sit in the car. Much, much better.


What happened at Stevenage is nothing new for that sort of event: thirty years ago they were frequently shut down for close or near misses. We used to got to Maidstone bridge most weekend nights, and crash free nights were rare. I know the bloke who wrote off the burger van........


This^^^^^  I can't remember the amount of times one of us would smash a bike or car up, then be chasing round the next day for bits to repair it, we were lucky nobody was ever badly hurt, cuts, bruises,  then repeat again....  :o But we were all indestructible at that age

I never struggled to get anything in the boot of the omega, beds,chairs, cabinets, engines, interiors..
The posh Vectra, weeks shopping and it's full, and as for leg room, made for height challenged types. O and it drives wwd...

well done Lizzie  :)
that lot should deter the tinworm from having an all you can eat buffet  :y
it takes a long time but you don't have to pay for your own labour  :)

Thanks Dave! :y :y

Yes I believe it is all worthwhile, and for a lady of a certain age I am quite pleased I can still do this type of work!!  I begrudge paying labour costs - cheapest around here is 75 per hour - when I can still do it myself.

Where's the back rub?!................. :D :D ;)

The lord opti will be down to do that for you ms zoom. ;D
