Show and Grime

The perfect antidote to the Show and Shine thread

Some pictures I took this morning of the punto





You can just faintly see where @Johno933 wrote in the mud at the Xmas meet. I got off lightly and was expecting worse tbh :laugh:



Hopefully I'll get it cleaned on Saturday weather and hangover permitting but it'll be muddy again come January when I go back to work

Show me your muddy car pictures folks @Mrcento especially as I want to see how bad the tractor got

Oh wait, you meant the car not the possible hangover

Why thank you. It's the streak down the boot isn't it - one of my better works of art I feel

Re: Show and Grime

It's that time of year again and I was feeling ashamed of the state of the car until I looked out this thread. Got some way to go before it gets as bad as the top pic



Don't think it will take long tho. Number plate was cleaned on Thursday evening and that's the state of it already

Re: Show and Grime

It won't last

And if you lived up here it wouldn't even last a day as all the roadworks mean it's muddier than usual. The new network is going to be great once it's all finished but for now you can't drive anywhere near Aberdeen without getting clarted in mud. It's quite amusing seeing some really expensive motors absolutely filthy. I was behind a newish range rover today that looked like it was actually used off road instead of the usual chelsea tractor. It made my car look almost clean :lol:

Re: Show and Grime

Am I allowed to post my dirty cars in here, or am I banned for obvious reasons?

Re: Show and Grime

Punto's even more grim now and probably worse than the first picture in this thread. Even I'm beginning to get a bit ashamed of it but no time to wash it properly until the Xmas hols. Just the lights and number plate getting a quick dicht until then :red:
