Cool Oh Man! Ruin My Day!

Well, today was SUPPOSED to be a nice day. I was going to wash the truck and give it a nice coat of wax. I checked the weather all week and it was going to be sunny and warm. I checked it again last night and it said rain all day today.

I woke up to rain. It has stopped so hopefully the sun comes out. If not, I am going to be mad!

Yep. One of the joys of driving a black truck.

P.S. Looks like it MIGHT clear up enough to get it washed and waxed.

That is true about the black vehicles and when they are clean they look great. When it is clean need to dust it alot especailly at shows or cruise nights.

I also heard that it may clear up later today and should be a nice day tomorrow

Ha! You gotta learn to live with it now! You laughed at me when I got a black truck, now look at you!

I just do a quick cleaning job when it gets bad if the weather is not going to be getting nicer. When the weather is nice for a while, that's when I spend the time to get it real clean.

Thumbs up Woohoo!

Well, it got nice out. All the roads dried up so I took the truck to the car wash and got it all clean. Brought it home and waxed it and cleaned the tires.

Nice and clean now. Dare I say, cleaner than Tim AND Gordon's trucks...combined!

Not looking too bad for a 6+ year old vehicle. More pictures in my gallery.

P.S. Anyone who has a black truck NO I will not come do yours.

You guys are worried about cleaning your black trucks and I went out of my way to get it dirty. Took these today at an off road training course I checked out today.

I didn't bother checking the weather first .... of course it only rains AFTER you wash a vehicle ... hehe
I went outside yesterday, cleaned all the winter rust off my wheels and got`em all nice and spiffy with a new bottle of chrome polish. Got the tired all cleaned up, did the interior, etc etc .... and naturally the rain came.
S`ok though ... I forgot a buddy had asked to borrow the truck to move Saturday, so it came back filthy again. Besides, I'd much rather clean my truck then clean the house ... hehe

Ciao folks ....

Jeff

Now thats what I'd call Blackstock quality control ! Looks like you were putting that Edge unit to the test. So I guess the question on everyones mind would be : How well did the Edge unit work ? An extra 35 horses at your finger tips, by the looks of things ... wasn't a bad thing at all.

P.S. These pictures were taken at the site where you plan to have our showin' shine truck meet ? Right on ...
