    Default cleaned the engine bay

    The neighbours must think I have lost it, I gave the engine bay a clean, and waxed the slam panel,inner wing rain channel and under the bonnet with PS21S, then washed the oil filler cap, dipstick,header tank cap and washer botle lid, it took me longer to do these than it took a bloke down the road to wash and vac his mondeo. mind you the engine bay looks nice now, not that it was dirty in the first place.

    No not by the look of it . I waxed the door posts and inner door surrounds on sunday, even did the tailgate rain channels and inner edges of the tailgate....Men and motors "eh" or do we have too much time on our hands.
    Mind you I always wipe the inside of the door posts and around the doors ans sills etc every time I wash the car, it keeps it cleaner.
