A customer at work asked if I could clean his friend’s car and he would help if I showed him what to do.

He’s interested in looking after his car but been nervous about doing the things I suggested so today was a training day on his car.

So before cleaning his friend’s tomorrow, we tackled his today.

So after finishing work at 6am, I went round to his house for 10am to clean and show him how to clean his car.

Started off with a full clean of the engine bay.

To say Mike was happy I think would be an understatement.

I think he said thank you about 20+ times, lol.

So tomorrow is another BMW and we’ll see how that turns out.
