    New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Just before I clean her off...

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    This is where she has to live - all outside in the cold. Brr!

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Sorry about the lousy camera-work!

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    You are definitely committed washing cars in this temperature. Looks like a nice place you've got there. Once the weather warms up a bit mine will get its Zymol birthday present. Went for a quick run last week in between my Portsmouth ferry refits, now its back on Charge-o-mat life support. Roll on the spring!!
    Just booked ferry crossings and Campanile motels for our South of France tour in September - lifted the winter gloom a bit! Got one night in Millau - MUST see that new bridge!

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Hi DC - Yeah... shame the house is only rented. Very picturesque, but a bit nippy in winter.

    There was a programme on the telly last week - MegaStructures I think - about that bridge. Anyone watch?

    Not sure if I will wash or not, just thought you'd all like a few snaps.... got to check if the hose has un-frozen yet.

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Yep, that's the one - watched it last week. Amazing. At least the French sort out their traffic problems - and with style! www.viaducdemillau.com Ironic that it was designed by a British architect, the one that also designed the wobbly Millenium Bridge across the Thames.

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Scuppered! Hose pipe defrosted, but the pressure washer is knackered. residual water inside must have frozen. Was in the shed. You people with garages don't know how lucky you are! I guess I'm not washing the car today then.

    Project successfully abandoned, then. Open a bottle of wine instead.

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Wine? Wish I could! Have to drive back to Aylesbury later. Assuming the roundabout doesn't get me first...

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Well take a bottle with you and drink it when you get to Aylesbury. Think of me getting up at oh crack of sparrow fahrt Here's my home for the next two weeks...

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    @DC: Have a good week folks.

    Just want to close off today by saying that, yes, my car is covered in muck - (I haven't washed it since mid-December, about 1500 winter miles or more) - but the seal actually hides it very well. So a good colour for those not quite so obsessed with detailing every weekend.

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Wow! still looks good after so many weeks without washing!
    I think we should open up a thread to post our cars when they are covered with dirt and grime and not just clean all the time
    My 19" wheels look good when they are dirty

    You surely must be talking about DC's ferry...

    Yeah, I think an 'I like it dirty' thread would be cool. Post 'em if you got 'em!

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Yep, seal hides the dirt really well, now if only it could hide the scent of the large coffee that spilled out all over my passenger side carpet last Friday. Last time I make a "Starbucks Run" for the folks at the office!

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    I just returned from my OPC with a fresh bottle of Porsche hard wax in my pocket . Showed it to my Boxey and I'm positive she would have got up on her hind tires and begged if she could. Time for better weather to arrive so the beauty treatments can begin! Until then it's just the occasional 5 bucks hand wash to get the grime and salt off, and a quick wax.

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    Mmmmm...I may just kick start the 'dirty' thread (with clean innuendos!)

    Is that a bottle of hard wax in your pocket, or are you just pleased to see me?

    Re: New colour combination - Seal & Salt!

    That's how mine looks most of the time here in Edinburgh!
