    Default Finally got to clean the truck

    Hey guys,

    Well I finally got to clean my truck today for the first time in a while. It took a while to get it shined up. I washed, dried, waxed, spray waxed, cleaned glass, polished bumpers and trim. I also put some chrome trim strips along the rain guards and the hood. After I was done I pulled it out of the garage for some photos. There are more pictures in my profile.

    Wow...it looks really clean. You have one sharp looking ride! Now you can't take it out until the snow is melted and gone.

    Great looking truck. But how did you manage to wash it without freezing your butt off? I can't wash mine without winding up soaked by the end. Maybe I'm just a bit of a spaz.

    Very nice. It's amazing what a wash & wax can do for a truck's appearance. I gotta wait 'til at least the end of March when my dad turns the outside water back on lol.

    Yeah Sal, I'd vote for the spaz.

    Thanks a lot guys. I washed it at the car wash where you spray it yourself. I am lucky enough to have one in town where they have two garage doors on either side of the wash bay so it wasn't too cold. After that I pulled it into the garage for the day and got to it. We got some snow this morning and I have to get out. At least now it should clean up fairly easily the next time I wash it.

    Haha, yeah probably. Not completely my fault though. It seems everytime I get a chance to wash the truck, gale force winds materialize from nowhere, and of course as always, rain within the next day or two.
