Don't feel bad, I've got a 2 hour drive myself.....and in the snow. I hope there's a car wash near the automall somewhere. Or a hose and soap at Mike's house maybe...LOL

I know, I need to wash my car too. The weather here has been kinda nasty, really cold and when you don't have a garage, in the morning, the car is covered with frost and heavy dirt from all the dust and debris. Planing on washing tonight or tomorrow night before the meet. I work late so have no time in the morning....or...... maybe get a wash at Mike's pad if he doesn't mind??....I'll split the water bill with you Mike! Just don't over charge if I intend to use the nozzle sprayer....:)

Anyone is more than welcome to wash their car at my pad and I won't even charge :). I have a microfiber sponge, bucket, dish soap, and some tire shine. If you want more than that you might want to bring your own products.
Like I said my house is small but I'm sure we can squeeze everyone in.

^^you going to pick on Mike now huh??:) I used to have a Black Integra(DC2) and that sucker was a pain to maintain...although, it looked hecka sweet at certain angles depending on how much light is hitting it! Yeah, the GGP is way easier to clean, can hardly notice any swirl marks...oops, sorry Mike, I know, "Swirls suck"

I just hope there is some overcast on Sunday to help hide my swirls.

cleaned the interior and engine bay this evening so that I don't have more to do tomorrow. Tomorrow will probably be a nice polish and wax.
