      • Turning any wet vacuum into an extractor.

        Not sure if I've posted this before but here it is again if I have.
        Any vacuum capable of being safely used to clean up liquid can be turned into an extractor. You simply need an extractor head to fit your vacuum hose, then adapters to connect the water to a tap. No need for a water tank and pump, a tap supplies enough pressure.
        In the pic is the extractor head on my black vacuum hose. The water delivery is via the thin black tube that has a male copper fitting on the end (in my hand). That fitting goes into the female end on the blue garden hose. That female fitting also has a barb style fitting on it that goes into the garden hose. Then at the other end of the garden hose is a regular hose fitting with a double ended male connector to connect it to further garden hose.

              • Finally finished this one... its still covered in chips, RIDS and other defects.

                But its improved.

                Now an exercise in deceptive photography.









                Flake!


                This would have been a stunning colour from factory.

                • That is some serious cleaning action. Some absolutely filthy foot wells and trashed trays as well as demolished dashes with the make shift ash tray. I guess it beats copping an EPA fine.

                  • Once you get them looking so good it makes things like the dent in the door so obvious. Great work though.

                      Thanks for the kind words.

                          Discovered these scuffs while giving the ute a detail. Really is the worst spot.

                          Looks like a bag has been dragged over it? Unintentionally but carelessly most like it.

                          Very annoying [emoji36]

                            • Not wanting to get water all over the freshly washed car, I needed to fill the windscreen washer reservoir.
                              Decided to fill an empty 10L water container and premix some Bug Off and HD 50 to 1 Glass Cleaner.
                              Sure, it takes a while to fill, but it's 100% no mess and conveniently premixed.
