Hi, I'm Scott and I'm a Cleanaholic...(56k beware)

Haha, spent 4 1/2 hours on the truck today with a simple wash and wax. It was great! I got my front water spigot fixed so I dont have to wash the truck in the grass behind the house anymore!

Today's fun consisted of:
  • wash with Meguiars Deep Crystal Wash
  • dried twice with microfiber towels
  • vacuumed with shop vac
  • interior detailed with Meguiars Natural Shine (good stuff)
  • windows cleaned inside and out with Invisible Glass and a glass cloth
  • waxed with Meguiars Cleaner Carnauba wax
  • wheels polished with Merquiars Hot Wheels and Mothers Powerball

I dont use tire shine because i got tired of it slinging over my truck and also on Sundays, I go see Sara at her dads and he has a gravel driveway and I dont like a dirt ring around my tires either

I then went to get my "Dead End" pic for another forum and drove all over BFE looking for a dead end. fianlly found a place to ***** the truck.

I like the sign telling you to take the dead end at 30mph I guess thats the only way you can make it to the other side

If you are doing it all by hand and you are taking your time to make sure everything is right than I can see it taking that long... First time my 93 ever got detailed it took me 5 hours to do.

yes you are, but this was not my full clean, this was just a simple wash and wax! we all know I can do worse (like disassemble the whole truck)
