Icon7 Photo whoring, F-150 style! Wash and wax day! (56K NO!)

well the weather FINALLY is nice enough to hand wash my F-150 for only the second time since its re-birth at the end of last year just before winter hit and man did she need it! already had rust spots on the brand new paint from the brake rotor debris, the bumpers didnt look chrome anymore and the wheels were disgusting! i hate winter, glad its over. it was 80+ degrees out today, yes thats right, 80 degrees in michigan in early april so it was only fitting i wash the damn dirty truck. lol

some of my weapons, not pictured are the SOS pads i used to clean the chrome

I have been trying to wash mine every couple of weeks this winter. I finally gave it a real good wash and wax a few days ago too.

I washed mine in the driveway every day it was above freezing. Still froze my ***** off but I hate to let salt sit on the truck.
