    Yep. The last one didn't rate getting cleaned on the outside (except for the glass), but the new one is clean inside and out.

    okie, your truck is white.
    It will always look smudgy, no?

    You do her up in Realtree® and the smudgy blends right in.

    <--- will get car washed tomorrow

    Just washed it last night. Put an order in for 60+MPH gusting wind and torrential rain to Gaia and she delivered in spades! Truck is all nice and clean now!

    My 2006 Ford F150 5.4L XLT Super Crew is always clean...except after my Grandchildren have spent the day with me...but that's OK...I just wash off all the sticky fingerprints after they're gone!

    One of the things I was taught years and years ago was to never hire someone until you saw the cleanliness (not price, model or age) of their car. HH

    My car is filthy. I don't make my bed, either.

    My employers love me. I keep my roommate's kitchen spotless.
     
  12. No I dont think ive washed it over 10 times since I owned it. Its a 2006 Hyundai Sonata..its just not anything I can get into as far as giving a crap about its appearance..too mundane and blah...works well id recommend it for a daily driver and reliable transport but its just BLAH...I cant get up and want or desire to actually clean it...same with the car before that....A Subaru Forester...same old BLAH deal..now ive owned cars I actually liked, thought were cool, and took pride in in the past A Mustang, a Taurus SHO..those 2 cars I actually LOVED to clean...I was meticulous with them I ALWAYS wanted them to look good and always got compliments on them.

    Here is to hoping my next car can be another car I really LIKE and not just some BLAH piece of basic transportation...I WANT a cool car..just too hard to get with all the stuff I want on it they either suck for MPG or too expensive lol...Id like something NICE looking,Sporty,AWD or 4x4 that gets 25+ MPG highway. And a Sonata isnt that :)

    so no its neither clean nor do I care lol :)

    I enjoy detailing my cars. Today besides cleaning the interior, I took out the spare tire to clean underneath it, cleaned the gas cap and engine compartment. I'll be removing the wheels to clean behind them tomorrow and Monday I'm going to clay bar and rejex.

    I try not to go overboard though :supergrin:

    They were before I started shooting, but they are full of range dirt now. I just can't keep up with it. Guess I need to get a truck...

    Did you check the air in the spare? I did the exact same thing to my wife's '06 last week and the 60psi doughnut was at 15... HH

    My truck is almost never clean. The inside is usually pretty clean, but I only wash the outside once or twice a year.

    My wife and I are both that way. We're very organized and detail oriented at work, but the complete opposite at home.

    Same here. Our cars and workplace are tidy but if our house was a motel, I'd demand my money back. HH
