I always say that I am going to wash the Nox and time escapes me... So I am posting this to hold me accountable to not only wash it but also to take pictures of it too!

Thats sad that you have to post up something like this to motivate yourself.
I have washed the Terrain 5 times in 2 months and would have washed it again today but got lazy and it's going to rain-ice Tuesday.
I do need to go vacuum the inside today, if it's not to late already and if I can get worked up enough to do it.

ha.

It's not sad. At least from my perspective/opinion... I work 50-60 hrs a week and I also put in about 20hrs a week with my company. I somehow find time to post here as well as another site called Truckmodcentral.com where I have 22k posts in about a 1.5 years time...

I pulled the dealer decal off the next day.

The video will not play, says it's private.

Looks good all cleaned up and I hope your wife appreciate that you did that for her.

You know that's not really a good excuse need to read the man laws again and 22K in 1.5 years is way beyound being a post whore.

Sorry about the video... I made it private cause I made it with music and I thought that might be a way from keeping youtube from muting it.

I am about 15 minutes away from getting a new video better quality up!

Nice.
I need to get a video camera on day.
Should have got your wife to open the doors and hood.
I like how you have the CD on the floor, good way to keep it safe.
