But they didn't know which cables were which at the time they listened.

No, he said it didn't need doing properly again for a few months - but you
can't stop dirt landing so you have to keep up maintenence washing. Also,
he might have just wanted to do it again - I'm not really sure why everyone
is so against Ray taking care of his care. But as far as bait goes this
whole thread proves what an amazing bite he can get heh.
Ray - I've never used any of the Zaino products, and of course it's hard to
see the real finish on photos, but it looks good. Have you ever tried the
Dodo Juice waxes? I used Light Fantastic on the V6 but I got a new pot of
Banana Armour seen as though the new Clio is yellow. I don't have any pics
but we gave it a real good going over on Thursday cos I'm heading to The
Ring in it tomorrow with 2 mates - so it's got a couple of layers of Dodo on
it, and a couple of layers of PoorBoys wheel sealent on the wheels as well.
So hopefully it shouldn't grab too 'much hard to shift' stuff over the
2,600, week long trip (taking in Monaco and all the roads from the Top Gear
greatest driving roads episode). Looking of course to get loads of photos,
so hopefully I can find a jetwash or too and blast any dead flies/dust off.
You're an active member of Detailing World aren't you? Have you ever seen
any of Monaco Detailer's threads? The guy based in Monaco that has detailed
some amazing kit over the years? Two of us are members of DW and we've been
in contact with him and he said we're welcome to pop over to his premises
for a drink and he'll show us round whatever he has in at the moment
(probably going to be a Rolls Royce Phantom Drophead...). So we're looking
forward to that hehe!

I have a Core 2 Duo 2.2ghz - 3 fans including the CPU fan - case ones on low
speed, even on full load for a long time, 45c tops :-) And it's in a
cupboard hehe! Not overclocked at all though, my old Athlon 2200 running at
2700 used to tip 80c...

In a "makes it look shite" way, that is.

Yes, that's "single blind".
