$200

 

He charges me less than other people because the car is small and I keep it clean, and I’m reasonable about my expectations (I told him don’t go crazy trying to get out all the dog hair, I’ll probably have the dog when I get the car anyway). 

I can’t find any dog hair in it. 

 

I mainly get it done for the wax job, but love my ultra clean interior.

I gotta agree with Louie, that looks fantastic!

Seeing that I DD mine, it would make more sense to do it in the Spring.  🙂

mine is my daily driver, pre winter is best to keep away the salt and brine with the protective coat of wax. 

if I had the money, I’d also have it done in May.

For pre winter I have thought about getting a Krown or other type of rust proofing done to the under carriage.  I never did on any of my other vehicles but seriously considering it for the ND.

A well-known writer / humorist once said something along that line, Wayne.  Can't remember who that was... Mark Twain?  Will Rogers?

you're probably thinking of Charles de Gaulle.

The better I get to know people, the more I find myself loving dogs.

I have 2 chihuahuas now. They are great little watch dogs and companions. I also had a Doberman but not anymore. Ex got him. The Doberman (Moose) loved car rides. Didn’t have any convertibles then but she did the usual stick her face out of the window they all do.

It does look good. Mine is going under the car cover in a few weeks. Perhaps I’ll do something similar. Then it’s the plug in Prius until March, but I’ve been thinking about trading it in for a new 4 Runner. I love those things.

Our dog, a Peagle, is not fond of car rides.  Only dog that I know of.  He will whine constantly in any car except the Miata with the too down.  In the Miata hs sits calmly and takes it all in.

My wife is the same.  She has a shirt that says "Dogs make me happy, people make my head hurt".  We also have a door mat that reads "Dogs welcome, people tolerated".

Car cover = sad day.  Def. going to see a difference in mileage if you make that trade.  Lol
