    well, first dry day for younks, had snowfoamed and washed both cars the other day, so got the buckets and mitt out and washed the Vec again, dried it off.
    Went over it with Megs #7 and the DAS 6, went ok but didn't look that much better than doing it by hand - then I went back over it with the megs #16 wax. Wow, wife came back from doctors and noticed straight away.
    First time I've used the DAS6 or the #16, will be doing it more regularly now!
    Amused the neighbours, they were glued to window. Daresay they'll be wanting theirs done next - no chance, still got to do trim and tyres and glass on mine, wore myself out again.

    Good weather today, still not good enough to do the full works on mine yet though. Managed to get a coat of AG HD Wax on mine 2 weeks ago. Will wait till end of March start of April before breaking the clay and the machine polisher out. Got the Car washed and tyres dressed today.

    Yes, weather need to improve a lot to give people a chance. Seems I can't get it all done alone in a day anyway, when I stopped today (after double painkillers and anti-inflammatories) I nodded off for a couple of hours.
    Had been itching to try the polisher and the wax out, just wanted to see how I got on with the polisher and what it all looked like with wax over the top. Will give it a better going over when/if we have a couple of dry days - then I promised to do my wife's......

    Lol, weather's been too crap since for pics - I did put some of beading on the bonnet on a " Megs #16" thread. Hoping to get wife's car done and another layer of wax or two on mine over next two days - this time I'll take pics before it rains.
