      last winter i used to go to the do it yourself car washes, most of them actually spray hot water but bring your own sponge and soap obviously.

      was escepcially helpfull when someone egged my car and i didnt see it untill it froze to the paint

      Finally moved onto my false floor project.



      I should be finished tonight.

      Also picked up enough headliner material to finish that project.
