    What did you do to your car today?

    Just installed some suspension / chassis bits and I plan on washing it tonight.
    Tomorrow, it's gonna be oiled for rust proofing.

    Nothing today, but this is the joy I'll be having pretty soon.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Today on my Grand Prix I am replacing the spark plugs and wires and installing HIDs. Also probably will tune it a bit, as it was running lean awhile back and I just bumped up the a/f ratio a bit to solve the issue.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    Today I'll be washing my car in my garage again. Made possible by one of the greatest car washing inventions of all time imo.

    Since the cost of water in my town is literally tripling, this stuff is a life saver for those that shun automatic car washes like myself. It's awesome to be able to wash my car in my garage using only 2 gallons of water! What's even more incredible is the results I get from it are better than what I get by the hose method.

    Only good if car is relatively clean already. I use that as quick detailer and clay bar lubricant.

    Re: What did you do to your car today?

    The first time I used it was the middle of winter on my wife's filthy, salt and sand laden black car. It worked incredibly well on it! The bucket and wash mitt were literally black, but there were not any new scratches on the car when I got done. The problem of course is you can't get the wheel wells with ONR. What I do if the car has winter grime on it is rinse the wheel wells in the driveway or if it's to cold out I just give them a quick rinse at the high pressure wash. If the paint has a lot of dirt on it from the salt/sand mixture they put on the roads here in winter I give it a rinse as well. That gets off any loose sand/dirt and I'm still able to wash it in my garage with my heater on.

    Today all my car was dirty from was some rain I drove in yesterday though, and ONR is just the thing for that. Unless the price of water here goes WAY down, I'll be using ONR more often than not. The problem here is that you get charged even more for water once you go above 1,000cf and even more when you hit 2,000. Washing the car doesn't use nearly as much as my lawn sprinklers but it does add to the total.
