Default Car cleaning at the meet

Hi all,

Bert has arranged for local PVD member Lawrence Bentley of Black Diamond Detailing to come and clean cars for us at the hotel on the Saturday morning

As we have limited time available and some people had already asked about this, we have two slots available for a 20 minute safe wash and dry (inc snow foam pre-wash and QD Spritz) for 15, before we set off at 10:00:

09:20
09:40

MJ

It's raining here and spoiled my handiwork.

I get your point but I am being a bit selfish for once.
When are you travelling down?
I'm setting off Thursday morning and visiting the Wye Valley and Chepstow.

I realised that, just wanted to stick the boot in.
I'm really annoyed, I've spent days sorting the car for this weekend, having to dodge the sun and hot weather. Finally put the last effort in on Monday and Tuesday it persisted down and I had to run a couple of errands, so back to square one.
Well not really but soul destroying.
