Unsure what my car will look like after the early morning cross country Cotswold blast, could come the cleaner boring route but doubt I will bother.

2 buckets and some Quick and Easy wash and Quick Detailer may be neededon arrival I think.

My dad un-educated in detailing decided to use some Graffiti removal spray to get his off :S luckily i managed to get it all off before the idiot cained his paint lol
