April 2016 AO Detailing Competition Vote

Time to vote to pick a winner for April

Just a reminder, as with the AO COTY competition this is a fun competition but at the same time members have taken the time & effort to clean their cars, take pics & post them, so similar rules apply.

For those reasons we ask that members only vote for whoever they think deserves to win

Also some Alloy Wheel Protector and the usual Glass Cleaner over the windscreen (the auto-wipers go crazy if that last step is missed).

The first photo isn't today: it's from February to show where I started.

I've checked using the Mobile View on 3 different mobile devices (Android, iProduct, Windows Phone) & none of them show the poll as closed, it's listed as "This poll will close on 08-05-16 at 09:59" which is correct. Are you using an app to view AO ?

Or have you already voted, if so you can't vote again so it may appear that the poll is closed

Indeed - our family car is metallic black; looks great when it's all done, but that colour is total ball ache to say the least ... never again will I be buying a black car.

Hard to pick one, white ti is as is the red GTV.

However, as I harbour a (not very) secret desire for a blue GTV...
