    Since having cars drive side resprayed due to some b***tard scraping it and then two weeks later some bright spark pulled into her as I was overtaking (and its still not resolved with the insurers, they have gone legal with the other party) I have not taken the time to wash, wax or clay the shed as I felt it

    a) best to leave new paint alone
    b) it looked so damn good.

    But shame got the better of me today (in my one day off work in 13 days) to finally succumb to the charms of the hose, bucket, cloths, shampoo and wax. I didn't clay the car as the new paint still feels very smooth and prior to the first incident, it was recently clayed so there is no need to do this until after the adverse weather is done.

    Why do you call your car 'the shed'?

    Because of two early faults I had with it. The common inlet port shut of motor once and the second one was a wheel bearing collapsing, leaving me a tad stuck when it was minus 20. Nice that was.

    Since December its been the model of reliability actually but the name has stuck.

    I missed a bit on the wheel, but this was a 1hr job not a £500 detail so I am excusing myself.

    She came up trumps and looks like she is split new, not closer to 100k miles than 50k miles.

    Its a car to be proud of and one that still gives me pleasure day in and out.
