That said, keep what you'll get the most joy out of driving the most often.

I guess that means it's time to take up #vanlife.

I'm afraid if I detail my hood there won't be any paint left.

Same... the most I've done is drive it through a touch less wash a couple times and I still feel guilty about that. One of these weekends my parents are gonna let me wash it at their place now that they're not worried about the water shortage and getting in trouble for washing a car lol.

Just lower the backs of the back seats and toss a couple of pillows back there. Load and unload the kids through the trunk -

You could try cordless power washer (feed by a tube in a bucket) to spray down/rinse, then rinseless wash afterwards. You could do it inside a garage and barely will have water dripping

Was going to permanently hire one of my temps that has been doing really well and he failed his pre-hire UA by a lot. He gets one more shot in 45 days. WTF can people not get about giving up some weed for a career. I gave him 4 weeks notice before his UA. I don't care what they smoke as long as they are not high during work hours.

Damn, are you trying to polish them?

When my paint/body friend did mine we just sanded them with 400 grit and hit them with clear. They weren't perfect, but they passed the 5ft test.
