    Default First Proper Clean of 2013 and a go with the DA and Poorboys

    Well, after Envy's thread yesterday:

    http://www.vectra-c.com/forum/showth...=1#post1959729

    and some words of encouragement from the man himself to actually dust of my little used DA, I gave the Vectra a good going over this morning.

    It had been washed, dried, and given a quick coat of Poorboy's White diamond yesterday by hand. Typically it had since rained, so I dried it off again and then set to it with the DA, the Poorboy's White Diamond again, Das-6 Pro, and a Sonus SFX-3 Orange Pad.

    Few quick pics below. Not the best quality, just taken with the iPhone. Pretty pleased with the results.

    Thanks guys.

    Amazing the odd looks you get from folk as you spend about 2 1/2 hours "attacking" your pride and joy with what basically looks like an angle grinder!

    Glad you took the bait mate.

    Looks pretty much brand new. Very impressive. See what a DA session can do

    Pray tell, how many times have you popped out to admire your work then.

    Looks like im still on the outlook for a cheap but nice DA as I gave back Khalid's one today (Shame)

    Good work chum

    Sadly, probably not. I'm convinced I'm probably known as "that nutter that spends far too long cleaning that old car of his", lol!

    Thanks Envy. Sadly, it yet again heaved it down with rain more or less just after I had finished. However, I have admired the beading several times as a consolation.
