Dutch Star and Subaru ready to go

Friday, December 14, 2012

Today was wash day for the Dutch Star and the PT Cruiser.  I met with Martin, the owner of "Washanwear Mobile Wash" a couple of days ago and made an appointment for 8:30am. At 9:30 I'm still waiting but realize that this is Mexico and keeping exact appointment times is not common.

Martin and his family arrived shortly after 9:30 in his old pick-up hauling a large drum of water and small gas engine to power his pressure washer. Martin and one other person climbed up on the roof, one with a scrub brush and one with the pressure washer. They worked steady and soon had the Dutch Star looking much better.

It was soon lunch time and everyone jumped into the pick-up with Martin saying they'd be back in half an hour which really turned into two hours. But the washing was done before they left for lunch and was completely dry when they came back and ready for the wax.

When they finished about 4:00pm the old Dutch Star was looking like new.
