Tempted to put up a pic of the cinq in it's current state in the garage just to horrify some clean freaks :D it's not red any more, it's brown and grey and is best served as a memory board as you can write in the dirt

It's a project car rule, they need to have some different colors on the bodywork until they are complete ;)

And considering where it's stored it won't be long before the drivers side is green too

Oi! We have enough of a challenge with Yellow without you introducing new rules to scupper things further.

Mind you it's also stored in the shed...

It's yellow and stoor at the moment - could probably use it as a memo board too. May as well considering FiaSco's currently being used as a blackboard to play noughts and crosses...

Well! Cleaned the Panda yesterday but ran into a spot of bother.

Washed the car and was making a start on the inside. The vac I'm using at the house is an old upright Dyson. Sat it on a mat, next to the car and started vac'ing. Pulled the house and ultimately dragged the hoover up against the drivers door. Which, of course, rubbed the already thin paint a nice scuffy grey. Oops.

A bit of tcut later and I think the worst of it is gone. Certainly didn't appear as noticable today, which is nice.

Oddly, the clean state of the Panda was comented on in Edinburgh today...changed days indeed!
