Ahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! Just finished giving the van a wash and to my surprise little new patchs of rust have sprung up here and there.......must be down to the salt on the roads and the constant all over the van so will have to get out the rust kill and touch up!!! Any one recomend a good protective wax... i normally use Autoglym super resin polish but it just dosnt seem to have the protectiive qualities for a british winter:ILU:

I used this on the van before the winter and i still have a good level of protection , needs a top up soon though.

Same with mine mate but the winter has also added a shed load more miles to my van due to a flooded road :*
My usual route has a stretch that floods in the winter and it means a 30 mile detour. I wouldn't care but the bit that floods is less than 100 metres long.

Not sure what the wheels are called but they are 17" made by Alessio, bought them second hand of a t4 taxi.
I love the look but hate cleaning them LOL:

I use the collinite 476 over the top of the autoglym srp., lasts for quite a while and makes it easier/quicker to get all the crud off at wash time.
