    Smile Think I've got that attention to detail

    Washed the little beastie this evening (find twilight best because you don't notice the bits you've missed) and, job done, bucket was put away. Went out later to help the wife with stuff out of her car, and there it was, I'd missed a section. 1st thoughts: bugger it, I'll do that bit next time, then the attention to detail kicked in, got the sponge out and gave it a quick wipe. Worrying!!!

    PS: In self defence, I didn't do the wheels!

    Wait till you start a quick clean and end up taking the car off the road for a month so you can remove everything and clean them, behind them, and anything that isn't bolted down.

    Think my juniors were a little wound up how many lifts I demanded that month

    Just like Hille....I got the van "sorted", and she bought a 100 quids worth of cleaning products....in 2 buckets, and now stored in the bathroom, that may or may not get used

    (That's the products, not the bathroom )

    Marks work was good...everytime it rains I have a clean van

    PS. The 2 buckets are more the size of brewing bins!!! (I did wonder why they cost so much more than the std 50p ones!)

    You impressed me so much that I took my Crossblade out of the garage for the first time in 12 months, cleaned it and put it straight back in again. There must have been 3 specks of dust on it at least.

    I seem to remember from before that those 3 "specks" all had a 36D cupsize....
    That must have been some "cleaning and putting it straight back in again" exercise!
