Soon off to Europe and probably do around 2500 - 3000 miles. Gave the car a quick clean....with a little one helping and other things to sort it will do for now :)


First as it was a nice day I did the Sweetpea 'Seatbelt' clean...as my trim is grey I was amazed at the colour of the water afterwards. The belt doesn't look much different in the picture but it it :)

Very shiny!

Is the GB badge legal?


I don't think there's a 'legal requirement' regarding these, is there? However, he has a GB number plate on the bike rack so it's not a problem.

Very clean by the way! :)

It was lying at the side of the road on a grass verge with air rifle pellet marks on it, so I thought I would help the bin mean and clear it up:D

Looks great.

I cheated the other day - I was passing the American Car Wash behind King's Cross station and took mine in for a hand wash and polish - it came out looking much glossier. The paint was needing it after a year in my ownership.

This was also in prep for a Euro trip :)

Once the council put the drop kerb in at my new place I'll have a drive once more and will be doing the polishing myself again
