That's right, I washed my Tacoma today, December 27, 2008, in Pittsburgh, Pa!!! Unbelievable weather to say the least! A sole 67 degree day, sun shining bright, and I was out there having a blast!
Tomorrow, rain! :( Oh well, at least I was able to get the heavy grime off and get more 425 spray on the paint!
Just thought I'd share (maybe rub it in a bit) to all of you who are still freezing your arses off! :clown:
Come on spring!

Ha, my dad lives up that way, always complaining about the cold. Nice to hear you squeezed in a day of detailing. Speaking of rubbing it in..... it was 81 here today :)

I did the same thing only on the 28th as I worked Saturday, I washed both of our cars at the quick wash, then brought home to dry and then put on a coat of wax on both also. If it gets to 40 degress and it's dryout for like two days I will wash the cars in the winter to remove the salt spray, it's cold outside but is only temperary. I like to keep them somewhat clean.

Yeah I washed my truck on the 28th even though it was in the mid 40's, all that road grime and dirt was starting to get to me.

Nice, my cutoff is 20 degrees outside to wash by hand...any lower the water freezes to fast to the truck :sad:. I have a pretty sweet warm water outside faucet setup....

Awesome, cold water washin' is for serious owners only. I washed my Tundra yesterday, it was 45 (maybe 40?) but a wind chilll of 29. My wife called me crazy, but I was having a bad week and washing the truck is almost like therapy for me. I'm sure some of you can relate to that :)
Bummer that 5 days earlier it was 70F... :dry:
