Default Confessions of a Cleanaholic

Haha, spent 4 1/2 hours on the truck today. It was great! I got my front water spigot fixed so I dont have to wash the truck in the grass behind the house anymore!

Today's fun consisted of:
  • wash with Meguiars Deep Crystal Wash
  • dried twice with Microfiber Towels
  • vacuumed with shop vac
  • interior detailed with Meguiars Natural Shine (good stuff)
  • windows cleaned inside and out with Invisible Glass and a glass cloth
  • wax with Meguiars Cleaner Carnauba wax
  • wheels polished with Merquiars Hot Wheels and Mothers Powerball

I dont use tire shine because i got tired of it slinging over my truck and also on Sundays, I go see Sara at her dads and he has a gravel driveway and I dont like a dirt ring around my tires either

I then went to get my "Dead End" pic and drove all over BFE looking for a dead end. finally found two places to take some pics. I still dont know which I like best, if you think a diffeent one should be used, let me know.

He uses special water that re wets what it wet before without having to spray it to get it wet... It adds to the OCD shine.

Actually, I DID dry the truck twice. Where my truck is red, I have to dry it very fast or I get water spots. So I wash it all except wheels and tires and then dry it. Then I wash the wheels and tires and dry it again from the over spray

If you get the right tire shine you wont have the issues you describe.

Looks good though you spend a lot of time cleaning that truck. Be careful not to rub the paint off.
