Even though it's been raining here Ive washed my Bella today, just a once over to get the salt/grit off her. The weather is supposed to be sunny on Sunday, if so she'll get the full treatment then.

Yep, I'm hoping to get the bucket and sponge out this weekend, Sofia is filthy. Last washed two weeks before Christmas!
Strangely enough, since Christmas I've had 3 or 4 comments on how amazingly clean she is considering the weather. Think it must be down to colour shining through the dirt, thanks to the detail I had last year, so if you don't look closely, it does look very clean. When in a car park, it really stands out - everything else just looks grey.

I think I'll pay a visit to the local albanians on Monday lunchtime.
Is it too early to make a joke about keeping an eye on it while it's being washed? :eek:

Not exactly detailed but the first wash in about 2 months. This is also a chance to show of my newly powdercoated wheels and the before and after pics of the wheel arch I damaged. The whole front end has been sprayed from the windscreen forward. Still needs a polish though.
Wheels done and damaged wing....

All sorted now...

Wheels aren't too different, just more shiny and no bubbles/chips. They didn't have any curbing before, just looked dull.
