Not as shiny as yours Mick, it could have done with a wash!

We had a dose of "desert rain" the other night coating my cars in raindrop sand blobs. As it was rather chilly I went for a quick wash with the waterless wash spray I have and it did a decent, although not perfect, job and restored my shiny looks with just 15 minutes spraying and wiping with microfibre cloth. I was so impressed I immediately ordered replacement stock - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WATERLESS-CA ... 2749.l2649 - for the next time I need a quick spit and polish!! :-D

Spot on. Made by Aimers of Satchell, Lilliesleaf before they set up in Galashiels. It was a licenced version of small holding/estate work tractor from New Zealand

It's rather impressive that it can drive upside down on the ceiling Mick :lol:

That's how I interpreted your photo but then I'm still sky-high on a big dose of Endorphins from todays racing so I may well be seeing things that don't exist :twisted:
