Day started out cleaning the car ended cleaning the car!

i get home from school about 1:30 i start by washing the car. then i wax it. then clean the interior. i go to work then go to my g/f house. i leave there i go get gas. and their F*cking pump is broken. the clicker that stops the gas from over flowing is broken so i realize that when i hear a dripping while im looking to see how much its going to cost. luckly the gas stations is right next to a car wash so i immedatly after paying for gas. (the guy gave me some of it off since the pump was broken. ) i go and wash my car again. i came home and waxed the part where the gas spilled all over the paint. i dont want to ruin my 1 mo old car [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif[/IMG]

at least waxing one panel of your car wasn't as tiring as the whole car [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]

civicdude will become famous soon enough
At least you were smart enough to re wash and wax that part of the car. Sometimes the gas will stain the paint and it is very hard to remove.

yea i didnt want it to eat away at the paint.

*Update*

Today i was driving to school and the truck infront of me blew his head gasket while driving and all the smoke flew on my car and guess what time for another re-wash. i think the big guy upstairs is trying to tell me something.

damn nasty luck u have there... I'll let u keep it tho - I got a huge bird crap on my car... and I mean HUGE... 100% of it was on the window... nothing touching my paint... couldnt believe it for the size of the crapping.

also my car has somehow managed to stay very very clean n shiny for the last week even throughout rain (thats very very hard to accomplish for eternal blue pearl)

Try having a black car brill! I am always very careful at the pump. Spill a little gas and you have to wash and then rewax the area.
