Fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice, shame on you.

I've let my younger brother borrow my truck several times now.

First incident:

He let someone I did not know, nor heard of, drive my truck back to my house. Not to mention the *** hole smoked in my truck too.

Second incident:

Brother and friends shorted out my CB radio wire, somehow, not sure if it was entirely their fault or not.

Third incident:

This time, driving a vehicle into wet cement. It got all over the right rear quarter panel, both right tires have a coat of concrete on them.






I've seen vinegar to remove concrete from paint, how about the tires?

I'm gonna wait to see if he thinks he is getting away from this one.

I'm gonna hand him a towel, a spray bottle, and 50/50 vinegar to water ratio, and put him to work, while I sit back and watch.

The only upside, is my truck usually comes back smelling like Papa John's pizza, mmmmm... lol

whitewall cleaner and a brush MIGHT help with the tires. it's pretty potent stuff.

Tell him to get his own truck then he can drive through all the concrete he wants with it.
And letting his friend smoke in it is just disrespectful.

The only other person who drives my truck is my dad, (considering his name's on the title right now)
Wax and Grease remover might be able to do some damage.

id beat his ***, seriously. my motto is, if you cant afford to replace it or repair it youre not going to borrow it, period. it would be nice to think that family wont screw you like that but its normally not the case unfortunately.

I let no one drive my truck brother, dad, mom, friends no one touch's my truck any more especially after i spent $900.00 for a new clutch/slave. Not going to let someone fry a clutch because they don't know how to drive a 5-speed. Stupid part on my end. If i was you i don't think i would be as cool as you. If i found out someone torched my tires that means your rear drums are toasted to plus the possibility they f-ed up the motor also. And the cement/concrete on the paint would set me over the edge......

Once the concrete is dry on the tires couldn't you just smack the tires with a hammer (lightly) right on the concrete covered parts??

who would be the fool for the third time?

the only person i let drive my truck is the dealer. there have been 3 guys at work i let drive it but there were really no other options. also these three guys are older and one possesses a driving instructors' license. one of them did smoke but i know he had the window down as he knows i'm not a smoker.

beat his @$$ and make him pay for the cleaning and damages.

next time don't lend it to him. if he "borrows" it. call and report it stolen that way he gets charged with "borrowing vehicle w/o permission" instead of downright stealing.
