Event : WASH 'N' WAX FOR WINTER 2

Date : SUNDAY, 11TH NOVEMBER 2012

Start Time : 09.30 for 10.00

Location : EASTERN WESTERN MOTOR GROUP ACCIDENT REPAIR & PDI CENTRE, EAST MAINS IND EST, BROXBURN, EH52 5AU
http://www.ewarc.co.uk/index.php , http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?f=q&so...,0.032938&z=16

Those of you who've attended previously will need no further description of what the day's about but for any 'newbies' to the world of detailing, basically it's an opportunity to get your bella ready for winter, whether it be to get that extra layer of wax on ahead of the ravages of the coming season or to prepare it for garaging until the sun appears again.

Eastern Western Motor Group, in the form of John Forret (johnnytheboy on here) their Bodyshop Manager, have again very kindly extended an invitation to us to have the use of their facilities in the PDI centre - undercover outdoor jet-washing and indoor valeting bays (with electrical points) - for a social get-together with a practical twist. Bacon butties, a brew and a brain teaser or two will be included, with someone on hand to answer (hopefully) any queries you might have. It's hoped that a demonstator from motor and marine trade supplier Farecla might also be present to show their 4 stage paint protection product, G3, which has just been recently launched on the retail market, but no promises on that as they are in high demand throughout the motor trade. http://www.farecla.co.uk/#

So no matter whether you have an OCD like me (and srb71) and think nothing of spending a whole day buffing your bella, or simply want to throw a bucket of water in its general direction and spend the rest of the day leaning on the coffee machine engaged in Alfa-talk (or anywhere in between these two extremes), then this is the event for you. Eastern Western are very keen to promote stronger links with the Alfa community so let's try and respond with a good turn-out on the day.

David sounds like another great opportunity to get out Bella's clean for the winter. Unfortunately we won't be able to make this one as we only just get back that day from our holiday in Gran Canaria.

Hope you all have a good time

It'll need to be a bigger bit - more metal to polish on a GT compared with a MiTo, .

Oh Aimee!!!

Just tell them that if your car isn't all nice and protected for the winter, you won't be able to go in to work at all, .

As does mine, .

I'm ashamed just how filthy it is at the moment - I blame Jennifer for that as she's been using it the last couple of weeks while 'her' clutchless Giulietta languishes in Western's workshop. The 159 hasn't seen a bucket of water since Western cleaned it after its service 1800 odd miles ago, . I just hope it makes it through to Sunday without some little scrote etching "also available in black" into the tailgate, .

Think I could throw a bucket of water over my car and a coat of wax by 2.30 on Sunday?

Get there early enough and you'll be at the head of the queue for the jet-wash, . After that, it's down to your skills with a polishing kit, , ................ oh, and how long you take to munch your bacon buttie, .

Just be careful - I'm not sure that pork fat has the same protective properties as Carnauba Wax, .

Would be good to see you.

Washing supplies are provided - buckets of soap-suds, sponges, hot power-washer etc - so all you need bring with you are your finishing products i.e. polishing potions, cloths etc. I'm sure if FF doesn't relinquish his hold on yours, we'd be able to russle up a replacement, .

Will be good to see you all too.
I reckon FF will have my ecosseoz's magic cloth full of holes now.
The lot that I bought at the pound shop and halfords clearance will be the same as the moths have been busy and all the polish well by its sell buy date.

Lucy ,also not polished since I got her almost a year ago still beads the water and shines.
Will try to find out what either the seller or previous keeper used.

Oh and bytheway the owner with the power polisher .I bough sheepskin polishing mits for my angle grinder so long ago from screwfix it was the guy wie the white hair that owned it then.It will proabably need sheared before use.

Also still in wrapper awaiting the right moment to strike which looks like tomorrow.
