Glad to hear it Gaz. What does "quite well" equate to in relative terms?

Its almost as shiny as yours!

To be honest, its rekindled a bit of love for the car. Might take more pride in it and spend some coin now rather than selling

Didn't you put some sealant or wax on it after you polished? I prefer wax but a good coating or two of either should keep the pinking at bay.

I put something on it that wasn't t-cut and it made it red again, thats all i can tell you right now. I'll put the bottle in the car and show it to you at the next meet

Quite amazing results really, for my cleaning/detailing skills anyway. Such as they are

Nice. I shall put a bottle of aqua wax in the car for you. I get the trade version in bulk so you are welcome to half a litre or so.

Red wine?

I just saw a red 2 litre pass the Holbrook club in Horsham, go past the turning to the industrial estate and turn left into the residential estate there. No waves, as I was in invisible mode (i.e on foot).

Just saw a yellow spider drive past me on the a33 between reading and basingstoke. Didn't have quick enough reactions to wave but it looked nice

5.25 this afternoon GTV in that lovely turquoise colour headed off the A149 roundabout just past Sandringham up towards Dersingham. We were coming from Hunstanton after driving to Norwich then up the coast road from Cromer

Spotted a blue 'R' reg Gtv in Holt on Wednesday and today at Ely railway station a 3.0 ltr silver Gtv spider. Hopefully I'll see some more Gtv's near Sheringham and Cromer next week whilst working away from home.

Two spots this morning. Both Rosso GTVs.

1: Exiting M1 J12 southbound with front number plate on the dashboard and turned right towards Toddington. Waved but didn't see a response.

2. Just south of Leighton Buzzard on the A505. A late wave from me.
pkr is online now
