2 years ago they ripped all the roads around my house. Was like that all summer. I couldn't even get the car dried off and I had dust on it. It'* a labor of love keeping it clean.

I spent 8 hours detailing my car one day, then parked it in the shop. Only to find the next day that a bird got in the shop and made quite the mess.

I took a pic of mine when i went back to NC during Spring Break. It wasn't pretty - she looked like a chartreuse/black fishing lure....

its so sad.. i dont have a bird issue, because I have a tent garage, but the pollen is ridiculous here because I live in a field, seeing that accumulate on my car makes me wonder how much is in my lungs.. thank god I dont have allergies.

I hate when the pollen is bad! it even sucks down here too. My car has been in a garage and still it is covered in pollen dust. Cleaned it off tonight and decided to put the car cover on...if the car can't stay clean with a car cover inside a garage, then I give up..

I hate pollen too. The inside of my car has it everywhere. It'* garaged all of the time and it still gets pollen on it.
