Jet wash !!!!!
I got warned off these. Someone had an old car with slight surface damage. It was mascarading underlying problem. Powerful jet got under the surface part and pulled rest of paint off. Cosmetically what looked a slight blemish ended up a major blemish.
Probably jet was too powerful.

Anyway I mentioned to wife and got a look of that'll be right.

In august the roads aren't that dirty.

Most people just take what they need to finish the car off at the event.

And I have even been advised to be careful of jet washes by my local dealer after the trouble I had on my old focus, so I won't use one now...

My nilfisk has a "car safe" attachment. Which basically sets the spray of it as to give a wide coverage; and in turn lower pressure.. although I find it to be too lower pressure. Suppose everybody has a different preference when it comes to washing! Personally I'd rather use a non-contact cleaning method wherever I can to help prevent swirl marks reappearing after the machine polish its hopefully getting (which it bl00dy needs! Haha)

I'll be taking some autobrite glass polish, inspired automotive show shine. Mirror image. Whilst prepping by washing and sealing in Inspired automotive Finalise the day before setting off. Glass & mirrors sealed with Carbon Collective glass.


Sorry.. gone off topic!

There should still be plenty of stand passes - you can get one for free with your tickets.

 

There's also a thread for this year's Ford fair, so it's probably best to post in the new thread instead of this one: http://www.fordowner...015-whos-going/
