I have never understood this why this happens. The other day I parked at home depot. The lot was almost empty and I parked in the middle of the last row and walked to the store. When I came out some jackass had parked right next to me with a truck made out of bailing wire and duct tape. Why in the hell do people do this???

Agree 100% here

You know me to well paul

Yup, been there, still doing that.

Yep, I agree with this, too! I try to avoid the puddles but on rainy days, if I don't have time to wash it, I'll at least spray the mud off, makes me feel better at least lol.

They keep asking when I will do there vehicle.



I am the same for puddles also, just sometimes life keeps me from making her perfect. So for days I have issues every time I get in and out of the truck till I can get her back to perfect. Yesterday had a couple of ladies walking around my truck at the Grocery store, as I was getting to it with my bags,they got surprised when I unlocked my doors, they did not know I was the owner, they could not stop complimenting how great my truck was. Had a huge smile on my face lmao

Please tell me you don't dry-wipe the MF towel over your vehicle?

An outstanding product that does EXACTLY what it's designed to do if used properly.

The problem lies within the user almost, always.

Very, very few people know how to use it effectively and to its optimal ability.

amen to that

ya, i got used to having the '11 dirty and guess i've gotten lazy...that and don't really have a whole lot of "me 'n the truck" time with work and everything else. This one tho i'll definitely have to set aside some quality wash and buff time. With this colour, it already looks nasty just pulling out of the wash bay.....

lol I'd have to wash my truck once a week to keep it clean. I wash it a couple times a year. I paid someone (first time ever) from a mobile detailing company to come wash it this weekend, only cost $50!!! Yeah he didn't do as good as I do but hell it saved me a whole day.

....then I went to work and it's covered in mud again lol.

Aerodynamics.. Well that was my dad's old BS excuse to get me to wash the vehicles when I was little.. "The dirt and junk causes wind prevention and when freshly waxed everything is smooth and the vehicle has better aerodynamics".. 'dad thats not true.. "I don't care what you think get washing"
