I know this sounds like a lie, but my best friend drove.. clearly overestimated his abilities and sent it to hard for his skills.
Nothing broke, good wash, detailer had a field day and mechanic thought he was in Dubai while taking care of the underbody.
Also don’t know what he thought driving with a window cracked…
 
I spun my Pontiac Solstice out on Streets of Willow with the top down once. Its quite disappointing watching all that sand land in your interior. It took months for the vents to stop sandblasting me whenever I turned on the A/C.

Got lucky I guess. Once it coughed it all out and after 2-3 sessions on the vacuum the detailer went through and it looks like new. No stuck buttons or dials whatsoever. Funny thing I noticed because of this: My button for the rear window heat is in a slightly darker black color compared to the others

Please tell me you are looking for a new best friend...

Wouldn't be my best friend if we parted over material things..
Car was fully insured for track day and he didn't do it on purpose. Sometimes you fuck up and life teaches you a lesson. Got away with a blue eye and made up for it.
 
Turns out that next door is having some building work done... which resulted in all our cars and skylight windows looking like this today :LOL: 😭

... and the kicker is that I can't give it a proper wash, because yet to go and have my first wash when the PPF install is inspected. 😬

I guess I'll rinse thoroughly with a hose, and hope it doesn't set hard in any drain holes or something. 😟

Is that sawdust? Hope it's not plaster or cement...

It's brick dust / cement dust from drilling or chasing out some existing wall... I'm trying to stay calm and good-natured about it, and figure out how to approach cleaning it without the car ingesting a bunch of dust (i.e. can't just drive to see what falls off first, before wetting anything) or scratching everything with Tiny Rocks Of Pain And Death ™️

You'll be pleased to know that these dirty pictures came with a happy ending... all clean now ;)
