Remarkable depth of shine. Has it got any protection on at present?

Even the steel wheels look good.

NICE CAR !

I remember that model was voted "Car of the year" in Denmark. One of the motor magazines took it for a summer Holliday ride to Spain with two children and luggage. No problems at all- even though it had to struggle a bit in the mountains  ;)

Today it is all about SUV with big wheels but this car has a lot off charms .

Cheers from Copenhagen

The upper bodywork (bonnet, hatch, roof, etc) was polished with Bilt Hamber Double Speed-Wax, this time last year. It is two years since entire car was polished. Usually about now I start to do what polishing I can manage. All depends on old stiff bones and the Scottish weather.
Steel wheels are actually pretty crap, but look not too bad until you get close. I wire brushed the worst of the rust off them, and treated with Kurust. They need to come off to get cleaned and painted properly, but I really need a spider and jack for that (I have the unused rubbish tools, supplied with the car, but they have never been unpacked and hopefully can stay that way).

One thing that intrigues me a bit about the Jazz (and Hondas generally) is that the softness of the paint doesn't seem to affect cosmetic appearance unduly. I think I've said before that I live in bungalow city and it is heavily populated with Jazzes and there are some very nice examples including a very smart 53 plate in pale green.

Popped car in for a wash this morning. The first time it has been washed since 6th of June. Not looking too bad for a 13 year old, 120,000 mile, runaround.

Is that an "Eastern European" special Jocko? I don't use them that often but my car was filthy inside and out after our latest jaunt to Scotland so I "treated" myself to a "Gold" wash at Tesco. They use autoglym Express Wax (commercial variant of aqua wax), clean the interior and I was delighted to be fair. I've never managed to get the inside as clean as they did.

Yes. That is all that is available round here. I was going to wash it myself, but I am getting too "stecky" to get to the sills and wheels!

Very impressive shine there Jocko, am intrigued by you number plate is it just for off road pics? From the pics it doesnt look like a legal format, or am I missing something?

A slight Photoshop to disguise my real "J0CKO" plate.
