I'm sure hosing it off is easier than buffing out rivet scratches.

I'm okay with her accidentally all overing the car if I'm accidentally all overing with her.

Where is this leak again? You cleaned out the elephant trunk in the engine bay, right?
Ive done that. I poured several gallons on the car.

oh youre really not paying any attention are you? Yes I cleared the elephant trunk ages ago, I poured water directly into the sunroof drains, fiddled with the door seals, and pulled the dash. Its driving me bonkers. I need to get a carpet back in there

Well, you're not doing it to clean the car. Ugh, I'm done giving you ideas. Good luck with your endeavours.
