Including my PC and Makita over a grand at least, maybe closer to ?1500?
So with out the PC and Makita, that's about ?1000..... is that for your personal use or for when you do other peoples cars?

I normally bring my stuff back from America.... total of about ?400 on cleaning products

I keep a spreadsheet for mods and servicing, which now totals almost ?7K for the 5 years I've had the car, but I don't track petrol or cleaning products. I'd say easily over ?500. Once in a while I'll randomly walk into Halfords and come out ?30-50 poorer and with a bag of cleaning stuff. I've got through tons of polish and wax, and sometimes use my car products on other things, too.

My current cleaning inventory is probably worth well into the hundreds!

over the years - I dread to think! The amount of cleaning products I bought for my first car - unbelievable! - BUT - "You can polish a turd!! You just need the right polish!!"
