    Man, hope we're done with snow.

    'cause I just got all the salt washed off the E38 and P38... They're both finally black again, instead of off-white! hehehehe! Anyone else out doing some spring cleaning?

    Yes, but did you jack them up and clean off the underbody? I'm really hoping that one of these "showers" turns into a nice, heavy, salt removing rain. After that happens, I'll be under the car with simple green.

    Yeah, had the undersides pressure washed. I'm so tired of how much salt is laid down every year.

    I tried to wash 3 cars yesterday, starting at 4:00 PM. I cleaned the wheels and tires on all 3 first, then went to the bodies.

    The 135 was first (of course), first time for me washing it (priors were LaserWash) and got it washed no problem.

    Then off to the wife's X3, it was getting dark and I used a soap-dispensing wash wand for the first time. By the time it was done it was way dark. I told my wife no guarantees on perfection, but it certainly was cleaner than before.

    I wanted to do the minivan (now don't laugh, because its a Pontiac Montana, and it has Kidney Grilles), 'cause it doesn't get much use since the 135 appeared (It's been good to me and I don't want it to think I'm neglecting it ) so off it went to the LaserWash.

    I figure I need 3.5 - 4 hours to do them all by hand - not including interiors.

    Have Fun,
    Rick

    Chance of snow etc Saturday. President's Day is known for very large snow storms in DC area through years. The storms occur around President's Day. Can you say drifts 3ft+ which is high for this area and missing a whole week of college at GMU.

    And the weather prediction software programs are predicting a major spring snowstorm for DC area during the period of March 20 through 23 with significant snow fall of 8 inches more North and West of the city.
