I am just about to make a start on my 9-5, just got back from working nights, naboughers may think I am mad but never mind.

Thought it would be good to have a thread purely for when you have gave your car a good valet then you can show off your efforts,

Will hopefully get some pictures on later but have been having trouble with photobucket.

Ok people let's get these Saabs gleaming!!!!! :lol:

Ben, dry it with a DRYING TOWEL it stops water spots or water marks and makes other jobs easier and quicker.
CYC aren't the only company that do them, Juicy Detailing regularly have offers on them (3 for £15) Elite, i4 call do them...very capable product that you'll wonder how you managed without it once you use one :)
