Pine needles in the garage? No roof?

Hard enough covering the truck and TOWTA's old junker, can't imagine handling a 5er cover and getting it up on the roof. TOWTA wants a metal roof added on to the end of the garage, but would require cutting down several trees which ain't gonna happen.

Just dust, etc from Mardy working in the garage when we're gone. I even put it on when I do grinding, etc.

I'm sure he'd charge mileage to come to Jersey. I'm damn proud of the job he did.

Pictures don't do it justice. Absolute mirror finish on it. First time we've used this wax also.

It does look like a pro did it. Does the wax come off easy in the sun?

FYI.... Rvlock is having a sale (not sure when it ends). Ordered a keyless setup a few minutes ago and got 20% off and an additional key fob as part of their Memorial Day sale. Keyword memorial.

Also ordered more blue streak chemicals. That stuff has went faster than I was expecting. Ordered a 6 pack.

Replaced my water filter today and learned an important lesson in tightening it.

There is that final click then another one and finally the arrow lines up. It does take the wrench to tighten them up to the end. I have not had one leak but did check it to find it one notch loose.

The factory replaced my water filter and never gave me a new wrench. I thought this design was wrench-less. I know I have to climb into my basement and curse while I turn it to get it tightened or loosened.

Ahhh, there's the problem. You must have used the wrong curse words.

It does. He tried to stay in the shade as much as possible then worked under the awning and did the nose once the sun was getting low. He went over it twice with buffer also. Can't wait to see how the truck looks. Only used half a bottle of wax.
