    There's probably an app for that.

    Multiple rags and towels for various areas of paint.

    Like, a wash cloth for exterior paint, one for the wheels, on for door jams, etc

    Never mixing them up.

    Two buckets and a mitt, one bucket with the suds, wash on car, dip mitt in bucket of clean water. Then back into the suds. Repeat.

    Or a snowfoam cannon.

    Ok so nothing I haven’t been doing already. Thought I had missed some revelation in car washing or something.

    Yeah! Can't wait for the road trip story and pics from the drive home.

    Millennials can't afford houses, which means they live in apartments that don't allow car washing on the premises. So they go to the tunnel wash or if they're lucky, get in on a pool at work and pay a mobile detail guy to wash it there. [/stereotyping]

    But seriously, the 2-bucket method (plus a couple of drying tricks) go a long way toward keeping swirls away. I'd guess many swirls are a result of improper drying technique more than anything.

    Haha, George has cleverly managed to combine everything I'm trying to avoid - convertible, heavily modded, forced induction.

    So, my 'glorious' road trip begins with the familiar curse of weekend users of public transport - the rail replacement bus service, the airport train line being closed for maintenance this weekend.

    Currently waiting to leave Cambridge, should get to Stansted Airport in plenty of time. Feeling well fed after an early supper of Atsuko's chicken katsu don, and ready for the journey.

    The plan is to arrive late tonight at Belfast International Airport, stay at a hotel by the airport, then the seller will collect me 9:30 tomorrow.

    There's been an accident on the M11, the bus is now in traffic. Fortunately I left a 1hr plus margin, so being 15mins late shouldn't be a problem
