    image.jpg Been having some walls built along my driveway resulting in my car looking like a barn find.

    as dust is likely to contain a good deal of cement dust i didn't want to spray it with water. A duster just seemed to move the dust around
    So

    ^^ Have to agree with Murray - a hit with the pressure washer should have done the trick.

    That brings back memories of Saudi Arabia and my first BMW - an E28 528i - I don't think I ever washed it in the Kingdom. :cool:

    Water was dearer than petrol there - still is. :rolleyes:

    Interesting. I recall having to use an air line from a site compressor to remove the sand from the inside of the Chev after a particularly nasty gibbly that blow for 2 days ,that was in Libya
    Yes our potable water was considerable more expensive, petrol was costing just over 3p per litre
