I hear you!
I'm on my second one.
Other than painted bumper, my new one looked like my my first one - my wife said nobody will know I got a new car - I said I didn't care...

I know that feeling my wife told me I've washed and cleaned my PT more in the 3 1/2 months than I did my Explorer in the 2 years I owned it..

Hey Guys,

Then I would imagine you don't even want to know how much time I have invested in cleaning my PT!

My normal routine if I am prepping for a big show is a minimum 3 10-12 hour days just in detailing with usually the last day being pretty much all day, and all night leading up to the Event.

Way, way back when I was dealing a lot with Meguiar's I used to do some prep for serious cars for the LA Roadster Show, World of Wheels, and so on, and that was 5 days plus coming in after hours to do a prep and pream for muli-day events , but my all time record, and still favorite detail even was a 1907 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost which was being stored at the Peterson Automotive Museum and was in need of a full detail before heading to Pebble Beach for the Concours d'Elegance back in August 2004. I wound up spending two and a half weeks hand polishing all the stainless to a high gloss mirror finish top to bottom till perfection. I can just imagine what my Wife would say if I spent that much time on my PT. :

Now as for the hours put into mods, paint, graphics, audio stuff, and other crazy stuff, that's a whole nother 12 pack right their!

Nayways, I really, really love my PT too, and already plan to keep working and tweaking my PT till I am finally happy with it, and replace anything that goes wrong in hopes of keeping it forever! Its just a way cool, and fun car, and I have such a blast with it! Yeah, I'm a PT Addict for life!

Go easy you guys, and I will catch ya later.

I love mine too!

This is the first time in many, many years I have actually liked the car I drive instead of merely being moderately happy I at least own a car.

In the past 3 weeks or so I have spent about $150 getting stocked up on detailing products to keep it looking good.

I am looking forward to doing some mods and letting it live up to its potential as an attention getter.

I have the reputaion of the guy on the block with the shiniest cars.....I don't know if thats a good or a bad thing....I have been like that since I got my 1st car 20 some years ago. I guess I have no life...the neighbors kid who is 4 asked me a while back" Why do you wash your car everyday?"....His parents always go to carwashes at 20$ per shot......I luv hosing down my car, and detailing it on the driveway on a nice day.I do a better job for cheaper too.
