Unfortunately Saturday only, and we already had several bookings before even finding a detailer to do the work.

We will have water and power in the car park so Bert is taking a pressure washer in case the weather is ok for washing them ourselves on Friday night which is what I plan to do.

I also have washing facilities at the workshop, again weather dependent.

Mine's coming in around the 600 mile mark, but don't know if that includes the actual ferry crossing as well. As for the car, it's been getting washed by mother nature non-stop for the past two days!

UPDATE: Make that three days now!! Just went to put stuff in the car for tomorrow and it's pi**ing down out there.

Michelin says mine is 342 miles but I'll increase that with travelling via Chepstow. Bit of sight seeing for Jordan.
We also have to detour locally so that Jordan can see what we have been doing with rebuilding Craig's (his dad) house.

Was planning anearlyish night but that has been scuppered, the kids decide d they needed all the plans printing on A3 in case the building inspector did a surprise visit. Bloody red tape.
