I've not tried that before, but it gives great results by the looks of things.

I've got the old version of this and it works amazing, quick spray and rub in with a microfibre, flip the cloth over and wipe away any excess :D

May have to give that a go mate. Used micro fibre cloths, car glass wipes, leather chammy n a squeegee but all with terrible results. Really don't help where I have to mark the car either. I'll have a drive down wales n let you clean it for me seeing as you like doing it so much :P

I actually bought it for my girlfriends car which hadn't been washed in probably 2 years, it destroyed the dirt (probably the wheel to) I know it's extremely harsh and doesn't go anywhere near my white wheels :)

I think Mark MK will be in a cold sweat from the lack of Dodo products. :lol:

If it weren't dark I'd go and photograph my lot in the man cave, sorry - shed. I'm still gutted I had to sell most of my wax collection (which stood at 24 at the time :lol: )

My latest addition is a Mobi cordless pressure washer, fantastic bit of kit.

This was a loooong time ago when I still had the Fiesta:

I can guarantee that as soon as I wash the car a smegging seagull rocks up and ruins the job.
I think they take it in turns. :(

I often find our cat has gone and run up the bonnet up the windscreen and sat on the roof with his muddy feet.

Had it once where no sooner had I put everything away and come in he was already sat on the roof, argh!

Sorry for the delay, Their best products are Red Mist and any of their waxes. However, i've got hold of some Swissvax mirage wax and thats better than Dodo. But the price for a full sized pot is crazy

How much for a decent clean on mine? That car looks mint. Its always a shame when it first rains after a decent wash was n polish.
