God I Hate Winter!!!!!!

Like the tittle says I HATE WINTER! It was a balmy 45 degrees out when I got home from work today, so out came the bucket and sponge. Besides finding the shine that I knew was under the layers of salt and grime, I also found new scuffs, scratches and returning rust. If I can drag my lazy ass out to the garage tommorrow I could try and refix the most noticeable spot on the rear fenderwell just above the bumper. The paint's not perfect but the new spots are most irritating!

I do sympathize with you .....winter, snow, & salt, all = trouble for the paint on your car! When my E36 was my daily driver 2 winters ago, My neighbors thought I was nuts ....I would wash my car every other day & even in the most harsh conditions....20's 30's.....the water from my hose would freeze on the ground!

johnny,

p.s. I guess I'm a little OCD

Yeah, I drive a redi-mix truck so I know about washing in freezing weather. Hot water freezes faster than cold water when it's below zero outside.

I'm in the same boat as well here in CT. I actually cleaned my entire car out spending hours on it. Then it snowed Monday and now because it was warm today all of it melted and I had to run errands after classes. Needless to say all the melt water was on the road and those damned people in front of you love to hit the biggest puddles so it coats your car in a light mist no matter how far away you are. Hopefully, spring is not too far away.
