Last hand car wash for the season?! :-(

Well today was an awesome day for November so I decided I would wash my truck one more time before it was to cold for me to actually do it lol.

It is a modified flag pole mount that was given to me from Torreador4x4. I have been lazy and have not yet taken it off but its basically the track from a garage door which was drilled so I could screw the flag pole into lol.

I'm hoping to get a break from the rain this week to do a final before the freeze weather. I just want it not raining for the wash. I can always pull it into the shop for a dry and 2 coats of wax. Then the flares can go back on. Maybe. Only if I feel like it.

Turtle Wax ultra gloss wash/conditioner.

It was waxed about a month ago with Meguiars swirl X and NXT

I hand washed my truck yesterday too. After using it for the past 3 weeks for work, it was pretty muddy and dirty inside and out. Always looks 100X's better when cleaned.
