Wash and Polish

Post by rob-bx16v »

:D Well its been nice and hot down here for the last week so i decided to get the bx out on sunday and give it a long awaited wash and polish. Polish used was auto glym super resin plus a bit of auto glym paint renevator came in handy. I also fitted some 17 inch wheels as my dad has claimed his 15,s back for the green 16v. pics not brilliant as they were taken in a hurry but you can see the shine i managed to acheive!! not bad for a novice plus i hate polishing especialy RED :(

Rob, that`s simply stunning. Congrat`s on a superb car you must be very proud of it.
Morette`s rock on BX`s, even on my dirty well used estate, and look amazing on your car.

Woreth every single penny too Rob, that`s the kind of standard of car I can only dream of. Hope to see it in the flesh one day, bring a J-cloth to wipe my drool off!

Wow, that is a great looking car. Not sure about the trail blazer but I never did like them. I guess if we all liked the same things life would be really boring! I seem to remember seeing that car a couple of years ago at bruntingthorpe?? With how often I'm in St. Austell I'm amazed I've never seen it around.
Keep up the good work, gives the rest of us with venetian pink BX's something to aspire to!!

Smokes lots, because enough's enough already!

Far too many BX's, a bus, an ambulance a few trucks, not enough time and never enough cash...
