Hey ill do it. Now if you told me to wait for a snow storm and they put salt down then I would tell you no. If it just sat in snow all day then went right to the garage I wouldnt care to much. Easy 20 in my pocket!

nope you have to let it live the life of a normal car. drive it in the snow like a normal person and not like a bitch and then leave the snow and what ever on it until it's done snowing and the roads aren't covered in slush. and then and only then you can clean it.

do you think the average person without a mental disease is out there right after a snow storm wash there car..

worst thing you can do is park it in a warm garage with all the snow and shit on it.

i'm with Chris on this one.. i like my stuff clean but damn you gotta draw the line somewhere.

i have hit the wash bay and power washed my cars off when it was freezing like the water was freezing on the car instantly cold but that was just to wash the crap off the bottom.


on the topic of cleaning cars. any of you guys know anything i can use to strip armor-all off the cargo mat in the back of my car..the place i got the car from went nuts with armor-all and since the mat has it on it everything slides around.

it looks like this

Brendan, any regular APC will strip that right off, you need to use a lot of it though. It's a pain in the ass to remove armor all from leather seats, the whole dash, door panels, and even the plastic pillars. Degreaser works as well.

personally i hate armor-all.. doesn't matter what i put in the back of the car, every corner i go around no matter the speed it's like slip n slide back there.


i'll try some degreaser.. we got some of this stuff at work. it works pretty good at stripping grease from parts. probably borrow some soon.

I will still be the same way 6 years from now. But hopefully at that time I have a garage.

Yup. When I was 19-21 I was nuts. I went through detail spray bottles every month.

Backed off after 2010, the last year I really showed off the Grand Am at shows.

I clean the Honda, but never as crazy as I did before. I'd clean it every other week during the summer. Then again, it's silver. I don't notice how dirty it can get.

I go through detail bottles in a week.

I take the company car through the wash almost daily, its silver but you can still look in the side mirror and see the layer of dust lining it dulling the shine.

Mine stays dirty so long that when I wash it, it looks like a new car again. It's a great feeling. ha-ha
