This one is the one I hate the most...and it gets done about two or maybe three times a year.

Washing the truck (which seems more like a school bus when you're actually washing it...)

I mowed the lawn this morning, did the weed eating, edging, and weeding, then figured I'd wash the truck while I was filthy. Well, about 4 hours later this is what I got:



I cleaned the whole inside 2 weekends ago, that's usually once or twice a year. Did the wife's car that same weekend inside and out.

2/3 times a year.. guess I am a little obsessed ha Summer time she is washed & waxed every second week at the least. I am kind of a clean freak when it comes to my truck though.

But a green christmas eh.. never saw one of those up here yet ha

She looks good though my friend

In Florida this is probably the best time of year to do all that yard work. I went to my wife's family reunion back in August. It was in Dade City. So freakin hot! Any way That is a sharp truck.:smileup:

LOL I didn't even think about it being december, it was like 80 deg today! I reserved a heritage soft tail today from eagle rider for the monday after xmas to go riding, should be pretty warm out :) (yeah....I'm rubbing it in, hehe). Thanks for the compliments, I need to pull those step bars off to put my new ones on. I think I'm going to do that tomorrow, along with some work on the buell.

When I was in high school I washed/waxed/fully detailed my 1981 F100 every other weekend, it was literally every other saturday for at least 6-8 hours. I gave up on washing this truck all the time to try and keep it clean, I work construction so it's always dirty, plus I drive so much nowadays that it stays dirty anyway. I just washed it today and then we drove it about 200 miles tonight and it has bugs all over the front again :( Oh well. The main reason I wash it anymore is to protect it.

I wash my truck every week and use quick detailer. Every other week I do a full detail with a quick wax. Water usually just runs off as long as I don't get it to dirty. I also hand wash if it decently warm.

Thanks Bettis.

It's just impossible for me to wash it regularly, it takes a day to wash the outside, and more than half a day to do the inside. Let's not even talk about waxing...lol. Last time I waxed it was a long weekend (monday off), I washed it saturday, did the inside sunday, waxed it monday, and the wife was pissed off all week lol.
