Back over the holiday break, I took my 1991 Mitsubishi Montero out to play around in some mud. Usually, I just have dust and dirt to drive through, but this time that rare rain rolled in and created adventure right on the ground. After getting my truck nice and dirty, bathtime beckoned. I drove to the local pay and spray. Before cleaning it all off though, I decided to jazz things up a bit for fleeting Instagram glory. You can see the two photos here:

See the second pic above? The one where I’m being SO FUNNY! Well, my humor has bitten me right in my stupid unfunny ass. Check out what my “clean” door looks like today:

That’s fun. This is a teaching moment I’ve wrought upon myself. Also, it gives me a chance to call up my friends at Meguiar’s to see if we can make a new video. The subject? Fixing idiotic mistakes.

Yes, this truck already has its share of off-road-earned pinstripes. A dumb message on the door is not a bit of scratching I’d like to stick around, however, so I’m going to find a way to buff that out and fix what I’ve done. Stay tuned for that.

Also, stay tuned for an actual driving video update on the truck. The Fox shocks are installed and it’s time to see if I can jump this thing. So yes, there’s likely even more that will need to be fixed in the near future. No… I do not, in fact, ever learn.
