Major problem with my truck!

So friday I went out to the rez, and decided to drive around a little. anyways im cruising about 50 down this long straight road, and i see a lil furry run out.... so i slow down, then he runs back the way he came, then back out in front of me, so i step on the brake, and get into the grass trying to miss him.... anyways, he make a leap of life torward the brushy area where i was, there was no time to react and i nailed him....

thats not so bad except for the sadness i felt about killing the little furry....

it was the fact that on impact i saw a lil puff of like, juice or something....



I hit a phuckin skunk!

now, my entire passenger side front stinks to high heaven, i have washed it like 5x drove all thru the rain last night and it still stinks!

Any ideas? I thought bout tomato juice but thats kinda acidic and i dont wanna damage my clear coat...

at least it wasnt a dog or a cat. kinda funny if you think about it, about the smell, you probably got some stink in the wheel housing, try some of the tomato juice on that, if no work, than just give it time, or hit something that smells better next time.

Tomato Juice in a pressure washer? It works on dogs, so maybe it will work on your truck.

I don't know about you, but I generally avoid pressure-washing the pets.
