It took me about 5 hours to clean the engine, paint the rear drums, clean both wheels, and check and fill all engine fluids. Plus I found out i have a nail in my tire

Looks great. Hard water spots are hard to get rid of.

Hard water is a bummer to deal with. I have no softener device...too expensive.

Looks good, though!
