    I'm doing a Tarmac drive on Wednesday and recolour I'll post up before and afters
    If you do use a turbo turn the pressure right down
    Spray with funcidal wash first,I do it day before
    Tarmac is actually a pain because once it's wet it looks darker and clean so be very thorough or when it dries it leaves striping

    Ye Tarmac holds dirt so it's gotta be very thorough or dries ****
    Also I will steam it on a low pressure
