    First wash of of the season

    Sorry I havenít been around much. With the new house and getting the garage organized, itís been taking up my time.

    Being in MN itís tough to wash your truck at home in the middle of the winter so Iíve been going to the touchless car wash after each snow.

    I wasnít really planning on washing today, but I found out my favorite uncle passed away today. It just so happens that he taught me how to wash / detail cars and I owe this rather expensive hobby of mine to him. So I honored him in my own way today.






    The reflection shot isnít the best but in person itís amazing.

    I am so happy with the carpro uk3.0 I put on last year. It was about two months past the expiration date so it doesnít shed water. The beading though is amazing!

    I didnít feel like putting reload on today, but will this spring.

    Great way to grieve without a doubt! When my late Dad passed away I had my then father-in-law's Crown Vic in my garage for a detail. Once we got home from the hospital and put the kids to bed I went into the garage and worked on the car, just felt right and "I needed it"First wash of of the season

    You can have a 2 or 3 day therapy session in a while when you do a full detail on that truck, your Uncle will always be there with youFirst wash of of the seasonFirst wash of of the season

    Jeremy, Nice job!

    I must live around the corner from you..... Elrene & Stonebridge. When I still "participated" in winter, I could be found at the self serve wash behind Walmart weekly.

    A little late, but looks purty.
    I like that blue, not too dark, not too light.

    And I'm 'way north' of you and John U......you know, by the state fair grounds.
