    therapy, if I had the time/money for supplies it'd get washed twice a week. Busy class schedule stops me from doing so.

    Ideally i'd love to have a climate controlled interior detail bay, floor drains, plenty of overhead and waist/chest height lighting, warm water hookup...I need to stop, these dreams are too much

    I absolutely love getting my truck back to showroom + condition. Nothing beats the feeling of getting into a truck that looks, feels, and smells like new. I enjoy my garage time and the results are very satisfying. I washed, used clay bar, polished, waxed, vacuumed, and detailed my truck today. It looks incredible. My wife and kids think I am crazy. It's almost therapeutic to me to go through the process.

    I have never once washed a truck more than twice a year and absolutely have never waxed a truck. My previous truck I owned was 12 years old and never had wax on it and paint looked brand new the day I sold it.

    I do it because I'm crazy about keeping it clean and protected, I don't enjoy it and I can think of much better ways to spend the 3 hours it takes.

    Love washing and waxing mine. Always have, it's a cheap investment in keeping your vehicle looking nice which helps with resale. In my case, I have driven primarily 8-10 yr old vehicles so keeping it clean at least makes me not think of it as an old shitbox, and less likely to try and fix what I have when it breaks.

    Spring 2012 I had more than one person think my 2006 Chevy Colorado was only a couple of years old to look at it. Had one small scratch that you could see, no rips or burns inside, never smoked inside. I hadn't even washed it recently.

    Especially love it now that I bought a Porter Cable DA, can buff out scratches and such in addition to just waxing.
