The sun always helps but it does have a lovely deep black gloss to it. Looks really good.

Did my father in laws car today. Pleased with how it turned out.

Cheers.

Just a maintenance wash this time and a top up of sealant and dressings as I clean it every month. I did a full wash, decon, polish and wax etc last month.

Had to be careful today regarding water spotting as the sun was out and it was warm. Saying that, it certainly stopped me from dragging my heels.

After waiting weeks for the short gun to turn up (lost in transit) a replacement has finally arrived today (have had the other parts for weeks), so am ready to give it all a go soon

Don’t forget to double check the nozzle (25 or 40 degree) is correctly seated and test it away from the car, glass or people (unless you don’t like them) just in case it isn’t. You won’t want it flying out under pressure.

Let us know how you get on with it.
