Jan Olsson Posted November 29, 2010 Report Share Posted November 29, 2010 Early snow, about 12 inches already and about 25F outside. The retards maintaining the roads here in Sweden are as usual destroying perfectly good roads (snow/ice) with road salt, thus making driving a dirty and dangerous business (mud, grime, low visibility), they are also lobbying hard to make studded tires illegal with the motivation that all new cars have stability systems (!). The REAL reason is that the salt combined with studs wear out the road about 7 times as fast as if they didn't use the salt at all. Back to topic. Since they use the salt I really like to wash of the dirt whenever it is possible. My neighbors rarely seem to wash their cars with the motivation "they get dirty again anyway". Well they drive Fords, Renaults and VWs. If I had a car like that I wouldn't care to much either Today I washed my wife's Jeep Wrangler. 25F and only cold water available but it works if you are stubborn, better do this once in a while than to regret your neglect when the spring comes and the rust are marching through the steel everywhere... I could see the neighbors hiding behind their curtains, watching me wash the car Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
