Re: Blu's blue 500

Well my cousin is gonna buy the 500. Not sure when she is picking it but said I'd service it for her even though it's not yet due.

It's been a great car and think Mrs Blu is still a bit upset about it. Sure she will love the 100hp though once she gets used to it. I certainly much prefer driving it to the 500 but that's mostly cause I much prefer petrol engines than anything else really.

Re: Blu's blue 500

Well its mostly ready to go now, did all the servicing on Saturday and then @Sweex came round to help me clean the outside on Sunday, typically the British weather tried to stop us from doing so and rained all day long.

We used some of that Dragon's Breath stuff you see so many videos of online these days and its actually really good, so much so that i immediately bought a bottle for myself when we finished, along with some clay clothes - omg so much faster than claybar!!

Here is a quick time lapse Sweex took. It all happens pretty fast but was cleaned wheels, rinsed, foamed, rinsed again, dragon breath over whole car, rinsed again, hand washed, rinsed, clayed and rinsed and then we put the gazebo up. We decided to stop it once we covered the car as didnt think it would work well as was a bit dark under there.. but after that we dried it and polished and sealed it etc. Looks great, cleaner and shinier than the day I picked it up without question.


Just need to clean the inside out properly now and its ready. I think its going the weekend after this one coming. I will have to rinse it off again by then but its not being driven now so with all the products on it a quick hose down and will be spotless again.
