    If he doesn't care about the finish right now then why get all worked up about it?

    Parking in a garage seems to do the trick for me:p:

    i look at it this way...if the car is too precious to brush off, it shouldn't be out in the snow...

    if its a daily driver, some swirls from the broom ain't going to kill you. They'll come out when you polish. And if you're not into correcting it 100%, then use some glaze and seal it up. Done.

    Here in NJ, its the law to clear the snow off. if you don't clear the snow off the hood, it could fly up onto the windshield and block your vision temporarily. or fly over the car and hit the car behind you. snow if left alone can turn into ice.

    remember its only paint...

    Glad to see some who agree with me. Safety over Swirls! Garage queens with perfect paint should stay there this time of year. We all take great pride in our cars but if it's to be driven everyday, the occasional swirl or even worse a scratch will happen. Unless doing a paid job where you don't know the history of what's been done, I don't think a DD needs to see 105 three times.

    Exactly! I just can't justify spending that much money $300/month on insurance...

    But yeah, I guess you guys are right, I'm just sick of this car and the brush we have was 1. Old, 2. Dirty so I guess I shouldn't stress myself too much about it being perfect.

    I brush the snow off, gently though. And not if the car is extreme dirty!
    After all, I detail the car when spring arrives so it's no big deal..

    In Norway where I live, you'll lose your license if driving without removing snow from the roof.

    If I think I will be driving after the snow, I put a plastic top over the cab/hood of the truck. I then can move off the snow and then remove the tarp carefully.

    Chill a minute :p Its $50 a month right now. I mean, I'm almost 18... Theres only so much I can afford. I don't spend too much on supplies, and mainly its just what I have from promoting online goods, or selling something online.

    The car is in the garage, but how about if there is heavy snow when its parked outside during the day, I guess the snow mover would be ideal.

    I'm at school right now in Starkville, MS and we got a good little bit of snow. It was all over my baby and I didn't have anyting to brush it off with. Then I remembered I had my wash buckets with grit guards in them. I use the grit guards but was VERY careful brushing the snow off so I wouldn't scratch the paint. All the snow came off with a breeze. Powerlock and Insignis on the paint then 2 layers of Klasse AIO on the windows made it a breeze
