Layer of dust after one mile. Why do I bother.

Looking good, and even if it wasn't dust there's so much pollen about it will look dusty in no time at all  :cry1: :cry1:

Washed. Rubbed down with Petrol to remove tar. Washed again.... Clayed. Washed once more. Machine polish compound cut. Washed again then Collinite waxed. Need the Bank Holiday to recover.

Indeed. Nice to spend a day that doesnt involve spanners or wrenches.
