Obsessive?

I have become obsessed in cleaning my truck now I am washing (just gone done) and detailing the exterior atleast once a week, and the interior virtually every night:Really:

Anyone else obsessed in the cleanliness of their trucks/cars/trailers? I sound like an infomercial for Adam's everywhere I go when people get into my truck and say WOW, this is clean for 36K miles. :smoke

I make it a point not to keep the outside clean, unless it gets way bad, like won't let you into the country bad. Did you know if your vehicle is too dirty the border patrol will turn you around? I do keep the interior spotless, and it helps having a rubber floor.

You are not the only one lol. I have been always been obsessed with cleaning my vehicles. I never hear the end of it from my buddies when they always see me driving around in a clean vehicle.

I have the wonderful task of cleaning Adam's new '08 F350 tomorrow. We just got back from a 2,800 mile trip across the country. It's definitely gonna need some major loving!!!

Hell, My truck doesn't know what to think. It has gotten washed two times this month, that is about what it gets each year...

If its not too hot in the morning I might actually get a coat of wax on it also....

Obsession?


Let's see here. Last weekend we drove the F150 Harley(for the first time in a couple of months) to our new home in GA. 2.5 hour drive. Took it from one garage to another, right?

I am beyond obsessive with my truck. Sad part is that right now between running girls everywhere and keeping up with the lawn, weeds and other stuff...the truck cleanliness has taken a back seat. I can't stand the way it looks right now.

I end up washing my truck only once a month, maybe once every two. I just dont take the time anymore.
Between the high number of paint chips and swirl marks in the paint, plus Michigan's "change by the minute" weather, it's just a losing battle.
