How stupid will I look whilst washing my car in 3" snow??

The car is absolutly filthy and is desperate for a clean ready for my new tints being fitted by Liam tomorrow.

Anybody else venturing out to wash their cars today?

Mark, its more of a personal hygene thing [:D]

Thats like saying if you are filthy on a Tuesday night and are back on the same dirty job on Wednesday - dont have a shower!! [:p]

She's gonna be washed somehow today - thats todays aim (along with more mince pies and Christmas cake).

Actually I take it all back, just been outside and its colder than I had imagined!!

She's staying dirty for the forseeable icy future [:(]

BTW Rovers don't count!

My mum's just told me that if I even think about washing my car in the snow, she'll kick me out the house! lol

Something about the water freezing on the pavement vs old ladies slipping over vs lawsuits... or something!

Bloody gorgeous day here btw... -1C, sunny and perfect blue sky!... And I'm sat at my desk in my pants!

Josh, you have a point with regards to icy patches being created but luckily I had decided it wasnt worth potential frostbite anyway!!

I've just spent the last two hours hoovering out the Anni, not done it since i've bought it and it was filthy - full of leaves, sand and stones. I just can't stand a filthy interior!

Now that's done i'm gonna shampoo the dash and the rest of the plastic trim. The neigbours are giving me strange looks lol.

Might even get the Karcher out and give the car a quick rinse, we've not got much snow here - just a few mm which is melting now.

Still bloody cold though!

I'm not - dont worry!!

I just did my interior. Was going to wash mine but I have a 140 mile round trip later tonight and it will just be filthy.

Will probably do it tomorrow though!!

My car is making me sad thinking about how slick it looks when washed, chamoised and tyre dressing is applied compared to how it looks at the moment.

Even Im not that sad, & thats saying something [:I]

Washed her xmas eve & gave her a blast of mag's quick detailer & tyre gel, she's now mostly salty white, not shiny black.

Really hate it even when she's slightly dirty, I think the state of a car is a reflection of the person driving it [:)]

I really want to give her a wash in the morning, but Im off to MeadowHell, & Leeds on tuesday, so it seems a waist of time, but I will[:I]
