    The hefty amount of snow seems to be have been washed away by over night rain. I think today I will be giving the cars a thorough wash.

    Was thinking the same but got no time today to do it.
    Bought new pressure washer and need to test it to see if its any good.
    Next weekend definitely if weather permits.

    I am hoping to wash my CR-V today and if time permits, the wife's Jazz too. I have managed to get the worst of the crud off mine over the last couple of weeks( took my car for its 1st MOT and always like to present a clean car) but the Jazz hasn't been on the road. My wife won't drive if there is a single spec of the white stuff out there! The local taxi firm has done well off her for a couple of weeks. Lol

    Here it's raining and hardly above freezing point. Will be next week earliest. But it's indeed time to give them a good wash!!

    Managed to clean both the CR-V and the Jazz then it started to persist down, typical. Still at least most of the salt is off.
    I do like to clean the car at least once a week regardless of the weather.

    All at once it stopped raining, sun came even peeking through.... and I couldn't resist. She's perfectly clean. All mud and salt are gone and gave a gel wax treatment.

    End Feb 2013, washed.

    Looking very clean indeed I-DSI :Thumbup:

    I made a trip upto Manchester and back (about 170 miles in total) after washing her, so she's probably all dirty again :Sobbing:

    Salt's off your car, SpeedyGee. And that matters.
