I have been wanting to take the work truck by there.

I don't have the time.

I have to bite the bullet and wax the Silverado soon. It takes a long time, but well worth it. The Nox was WAY easier to wax.

So I've been waxing a couple of panels a day for the last 2 days. Just a couple more to go for tomorrow. Much easier than trying to do the entire truck or Nox in one day. My good ideas are few and far between....I'm kinda slow. Also, beer makes the process MUCH more fun! I have a 12 pack in the fridge to help me finish up tomorrow.

Default Welcome spring!!!

Just realized i haven't been on the site since October!!!! Feels good to be back!! Winters grip is almost over i'm waiting for a weekend of solid 70 degree weather since i can go crazy on the detailing on the Dark Knight.

Over the winter, installed OEM Mupflaps which do wonders with the salty roads up in the north.

Over the spring and summer

-Install Tow Kit
-Purchase Husky Liner for Trunk
-Paint Muffler with Flat Black BBQ Paint

So, when was the last time you gave your Nox a bath and good polishing?

Did all the vehicles in the stable this weekend. The Nox is now crying for something better than Mothers stuff on the plastic trim - now I'll have to order up some Adam's stuff.

That's exactly what this thread did, remind me to give my rig a good cleaning. Time to wash and polish her up, well, in a bit.
