It was cracked already but I think the cold water and the hot weather sent the crack across the top of my windshield.

You're not supposed to scrub that hard when washing your windshield
I'd hate to see the amount of bug juice you must have had on it, to scrub it that hard

(Side note, I took a rock in my windshield the other day... just a minor chip, but you know it'll spread. A real **** off too, cause the windshield is only 2 years old.)

Pete might be OK, for a cleaning, but he could always use a quick 10 dollar hand wash upon arrival. Seth might be in the same boat. We might drop in to Dans place on Friday night when he arrives.

Keep me up to speed fellerz

I would Jim, if I wasn't a perfectionist car detailer myself

But I probably will need it cleaned once I do get there. We'll see. I don't have much $$ at all. Maybe it will just need some dusting with the good old California Car Duster. It shouldn't be too dirty. I'll wash it and wax it before I go.

I'm just anal about my car. I don't usually let other ppl wash it, especially the shop after they do an oil change or whatever (they've scratched it before). Call me crazy I guess. Though most ppl wouldn't scratch it, I'm just overprotective of my 'baby.' (Did I tell you I park hundreds of feet away from other ppl...LOL) Does he use a sheepskin wash mit, sponge,...?

But I won't let my brother even come within 10 feet of my car after what he did Sunday.
