    Default How many of us took advantage of the first dry weekend

    ...in along time to give the car a clean ( dont like to use the word detail, as thats not what I do!)
    Washed and a coat of Collinite 845 today, even though I swore that its last coat 4 weeks ago was going to be the last until spring. Got to do the inside tomorrow.

    I did, but slightly different detail. I dug my old trailer out thats been sat for year @ the ex wife's. It was pretty filthy so before i could use it, i hosed all the mud off, then washed it. I then hooked it up to my Mk1 Carlton & got rid of all the junk i had lying around.

    took drivers side wheels off and painted hubs and calipers with silver hammerite. Sprayed a bit of lithium grease onto nuts and bolts in the wheel arches for corrosion protection. Hopefully do passenger side Sunday.

    While I was waiting for the paint to dry (had to use a hair drier to get it curing) I polished the bonnet and boot with some Dupont wax with added teflon I got from USA a couple of years ago. Good finish on top of other polish and sealant - it is designed to be used over a good polish for a slick finish.
