I need some of those wheels in my life.

No, I'm not buying a rusty Mk3 from NZ for them!

It is. Never normally use it on the older cars.

I use it on the moderns, followed by the Polar seal. Seems to work well. Keeps the white car looking cleaner for longer and the grey one as well.

I did use it on the Ital last Saturday when I realised I didn’t have time to give it the wash, T cut and polish it desperately needs and I wanted it vaguely clean for the show the next day. It did a good job for a quick 5 min jet wash!

The Leyland P76 in Australia also gets its fair share of bad press - even from Museums which have them in their own collections, with false information.

Must be a BMC/Leyland thing...

She’s in winter slumber now bug popped up to the barn and had her running (started first time as always) and moved it backwards and forward so the clutch doesn’t stick!
