Default Evil Snow

I just spent the day getting all the road salt off the monte. We had a crazy storm here on the 29th of october that dumbed 4 inches of snow and caused a huge mess. I was without power for three days and tree limbs were every where. I have never in my life encountered snow in october...but anyway. I gave her a good bath and then went over her with swirl remover and then paint sealant. I also took the hose and gave the underbody a good rinse. I totally despise road salt. I attached some pics...they aren't the best. I just took some quick ones with my phone....I just realized I left the hood popped lol. And I know....I know...I'm working on the wheels

I hate salt. That's no good. I just had the whole car repainted like 6 months ago so I am hoping the paint holds up for a while.

Yup it is that time of year again. I love it when you wash your car and don't even make home from the car wash and it's filthy again.
