    The weather person called for rain yesterday and I washed the truck anyway betting it wouldn't rain -- and it didn't. I waxed it catty-cornered in the garage (making some things tough work due to close proximity to walls) because it WAS raining in the wee hours of last night. It's raining right now, too.

    I don't mind that it's raining. This is the first wax job I've been able to do to the truck and it sorely needed it; lack of beading is why this was done. (I was going to wax it around Thanksgiving but the weather turned on me after I washed it. Not letting that happen twice.)

    Well I wasn't planning on doing anything to the truck today because I had a lot of other things to do. I went running and brought my house key with me, or so I thought; but when I returned home I realized I was locked out. I used the neighbors phone to get someone to unlock my house but had to wait so I decided to wash the truck. I thought it would be a waste to wash it because I didn't have anything to dry it with. After being let in the house though I was able to grab my truck keys and pull out all my detailing stuff so needless to say, 2.5 hours later the truck is spotless once again. Too hot out for waxing though so I think I might do that tomorrow night. I would have taken pictures but how many pictures of my clean truck do I need considering it's washed once a week? Okay maybe I'll take another one tomorrow after waxing...lol

    Oh and today I am thankful that there are 3 water hoses outside my house and that we keep the wash bucket and soap outside.

    I washed mine the other day... but one of the spinning brushes in the wash didn't work so I got a free second wash after they fixed it. Once it was clean, I found out that the people that park in my parkade at my university are a bunch of idiots and i have like 10 door scuffs down the passenger side of my truck from people opening their doors into it all winter.

    That definitely is a downer about your new door scuffs. One of the reasons I frequently wash my vehicle is to inspect for scratches so I know where not to park next time around. Do you think you'll be able to get the scratches out?

    I'm hoping I'll be able to get them out - none of them had dings or anything so a bit of rubbing compound and polishing compound before the polishing when I detail my truck after winter is gone should hopefully make them go away. And I will be parking on the far side of the parkade now to try to avoid other vehicles.

    Used my new Adam's sealant with my PC polisher today. I'm very happy with it and highly recommend this product to anyone who wants to keep their ride looking sharp.

    Well took the old stock air intake tube out and put a Spectra adjustable air tube in. Hope that will put some better air flow in the 5.3.
