Something for the weekend, sir?

 

Oh yes! - It's warm and sunny - so those reversing sensors are getting fitted today :) Wish me luck in getting the holes drilled in the right place (I'll need it) ...and watch this space!

Yay! Parking sensors fitted and working - took me 3 hours, because I'm slow. Same as last time, I only fitted two, to supplement the reversing camera. I don't think it's necessary to fit all four. Cost me £16.99 :)

 

They're not too obvious. (ps - they ARE the same height. If they look wonky it's a trick of the camera lens).

Yes, it's got a front entrance and a side entrance. I'm thinking of turning it into a carwash, staffed by young men from Europe, as our local carwash has just been forced to close. The neighbours would love it (not) ...Mrs Chubbs could sell 'while-u-wait' burgers & tea from the campervan, while I take the money, to pay for my road tax :)

Cleaned the giant lump of bird s*** off my car. I swear they wait until I've just cleaned and waxed it.

Although I managed to get the Zed presentable a few weeks ago, the new commute since March (albeit only 12 miles) has put poor Fred back into the same be-shi!!ed condition as the winter. Given the favourable forecast for today, I started at 7.20 this morn with the pressure washer (only 3 minutes for the sanity of my new neighbours) and then tried to get it clean. I just have not had the time, with a house move during a particularly poor winter, and a very late last snowfall, to see to the car.

The statutory snow foam, rinse and clean Daqua rinse was followed by a quick flash round with UF Quick Detailer. I began to see some water marks, surprising after a filtered rinse because the sun wasnt on the car by then. And then more water marks, so badly etched in to the clear lacquer layer that only machine polishing was going to get rid of them. As that wasnt an option today, because of time and strength of the sun, I got rid of the worst with Q2M Water Spot and had to settle for that. LESmo, forgive me.

Next on was the Bill Hamber Finis wax - this is my stock wax for just wax the car - but it deserves more praise than that because it is long lasting and very protective. This is not too long a process because I dont have to do the front which is wrapped, that only gets detailed.

There had to be much repositioning of the car by now, because the sun was quite strong, but finally I got a coat of Menzerna Sealant wax on the non-wrapped bits.

I had to stop at this point, but, still to do, is the front screen, where the G-Techniq film has degraded after 2 years and 9600 miles, and the alloys which need their annual TLC. Another day, maybe. But Fred looks better now.

Jeff.

PS. Photos tomorrow as I had to garage the car when I finished.

Gave the Zed a good clean ready for a weekend away in Norfolk to celebrate my birthday  :D  (just me and the wife, kids at home with the in-laws!).  The car fitted in just right with the other executive and sports cars at the hotel.  Got a bit dirty by the time I got a photo but still looked great.  It was a shame to come home and get back to work yesterday...

Gave her a clean with Bilt Hamber auto foam and Meguiers NXT generation car wash. Hopefully she will stay clean longer than last weekend where I washed her on Saturday and by Sunday morning was covered in a fine dust 👿
