    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    Embarrassing moment for the day.

    So our driveway was blocked off about 2/3 of the way by multiple dump trucks. They are adding on to our subdivision.

    Any way I thought I could get past them if I barely went into the grass. I was wrong. That ground is so loose and wet. It wasn't nearly as wet this morning.

    Well my truck basically sunk on 1 side :-).

    Street tires aren't the best for this but I wasn't planning on going into a lot of mud

    I got it our with a quick pull from my dad's Chevy.
    I couldn't get any weight on the tires that were on concrete due to the slope.


    I did get it cleaned up with pressure washer and foam cannon.

    Love having a garage wall mounted pressure washer with 100 ft hose. Saves so much time!

    Glad there was no damage.
    With all the rain we've had here I can only imagine the same thing happening here.

    Damn!

    Glad you got out of that quagmire.

    Myself, I would have insisted that the dump trucks "Move their a$$es from in front of my driveway"......
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    It has been crazy wet here for the last I don't know how long. That would easily happen to me Davidbear If I got off the pavement.

    I cleaned the glass in the house today. Another rainy Friday and Saturday. Another one!!

    Finished up the overspray removal I started a week or so ago. Pre final, at it, and before.

    Re: What did you do today, in regards to detailing?

    One of my regular clients, his wife, got a new Lincoln and wanted it detailed to get rid of the nasty winter crud.

    The paint is in really good shape actually. Very fine swirls on the sides of the car. You can barely see them.

    So I ended up washing with Chemical Guys citrus wash and gloss. Clay with blackfire Mitt. Then I sealed it up with TW seal and shine. Stuff was not too bad. The shine was pretty good and it had some filling capabilities.

    No before pics because it was raining on and off the whole morning.
