    Default Banana Sunday.

    As I had some free time. I had another detail "play"with my motor.
    First I snow foamed it.
    Then cleaned the wheels and under the wheel arch,s
    Washed the body work.
    Then clayed one or two bits of contamination from the bonnet.
    Dryed it all, including the door shuts, and wheels.
    I thought, This time I will use DoDo Banana Armour. I applied a thin coat with a foam pad, Then when ready I wiped it off doing a panel at a time.
    The wheels I gave a coat of CG Jetseal 109.
    The Tyers got a coat of Megs" High Gloss Endurance Tyre Gell.
    The windows, I polished with Enzet Glass Polish.
    The leather I gave a coat of Gliptone Leather conditioner.
    Finaly I used Back to Black on the Black plastic trim.
    Now to take it easy for a while.
    Here are some pictures of the mornings work, and my apprentice looking around to see who was admiring my efforts.

    Top job as always Ed. Hope your dog never wanders onto our drive. He's the same colour as my Wash Mitt.

    The brakes always seem to let the side down. I will soon get them clean. When I pick Larisa up later.

    I did think about painting the calipers. But that is as far as I got. Thinking about it. It would need to be a very good paint. The amount of times I clean the wheels the paint would soon wear off.
