*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Event : WASH 'N' WAX

Date : SUNDAY, 19TH MAY 2013

Start Time : 09.30 for 10.00

Venue : EASTERN WESTERN MOTOR GROUP ACCIDENT REPAIR AND PDI CENTRE, EAST MAINS IND EST, BROXBURN, EH52 5AU
http://www.ewarc.co.uk/index.php / http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=East...ngdom&t=m&z=16

Back by popular demand after the success of previous sessions. This time, you've got the chance to get your bella all sparkley again after the ravages of the winter season and ready for the Scottish Italian Car Day at Cupar the following weekend, . So no excuses for anyone turning up with a less than pristine Alfa that day, .

The format will be pretty much as before, with washing facilities outside in the enclosed jet-wash area then into the preparation shed for much dispensing of potions (BYOB) and buffing of cloths. If you weren't at the last one, here's a little taster of what to expect : https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/meets...1-11-12-a.html

A big "THANK YOU" in advance to their bodyshop manager, John Forret ('johnnytheboy' on here) for once again agreeing to host and organise this event which can only help to forge stronger links between them (the dealer) and us (the Alfa community), whilst at the same time being a most enjoyable way to pass a few hours, , so let's try and respond with a good turn-out on the day.

And an even bigger "THANK YOU" to Western Alfa Romeo in Edinburgh for sponsoring this event by providing the prizes for a skills test challenge - full details on the day but there's a clue in Post #14.

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.

Could you RSVP to this please so that we know how many bacon butties and brews are required on the day,

I'm planning on preparing some sample pots of Zymol Ital wax. Specifically produced for Italian red paintwork (which I don't have), it's a lovely wax. So anyone fancy a try out let me know.

Currently on honeymoon but will be back for that. Fingers crossed David isn't working or I'll be on my own.

Stuart, re your RSVP 'Maybe' comment. Easy solution, get flights changed to Edinburgh then you can just drop in on the run home. OK, you'll arrive with us a bit late (we can keep back a buttie or two, ) but I'm sure your good lady is pretty handy wielding a polishing cloth and could help you make up for lost time, .

Great idea to keep this up, especially week before Hill o' Tarvit.

Jumped the gun this morn as I confirmed attendance before checking our calendar. Realised my wife is away that Sunday so I'll have the kids - neither of which will be happy with a microfiber for more than 10 mins!

Last few have been good but I'll see most of you up in Cupar the following week.

BREAKING NEWS: Many thanks to Western Alfa Romeo in Edinburgh, who have agreed to sponsor the event and are providing some Alfa merchandise, including a watch , as prizes for a 'little' skills test that has been devised - full details will be revealed on the day as we can't have anybody gaining an advantage by practicing beforehand, , can we?

Any takers for some Zymol? I've prepped one pot (20ml) but will need to get some containers to put some more in. As I said nice wax and 20ml should be enough for 2 layers.

I'd be interested in seeing what it could do for 8C Red, , - thanks for the offer. Looks like I won't need to worry about what to use on the 159 as it'll probably still be languishing in the workshop at Colinton, .

So, instead of caressing and cosseting your bella, you'd rather get cold and wet sitting astride a non-descript 2-wheeled piece of Japcr*p, . If it was a 'Duke', I might just understand, .

I'll be along on the day. Not sure what I'll bring yet though. My wife is threatening to come too.

I would also like to try the Zymol wax, thanks for that offer!

I do have a Duke, its just a KTM Duke Though seriously considering a Hypermotard next
Zymol Ital on 8C Red should be simply awesome.
