Ah, nothing like a clean SLK!

As the title says! Just washed and waxed her, looking good! Now being this is Florida, it will probably rain in ten minutes!

Nothing looks better than a freshly washed and waxed SLK. I washed mine yesterday and waxed it today. They're calling for rain tomorrow. Go figure.

It seems like it rains every day in the summer in Florida, Bassman62, doesn't it?
