Coefficient of friction!

Last night I had washed the car, and finished up with the 'Final Detail' spray. This morning I was having breakfast with my son at a local cafe, and our table was on the patio, right in front of where we had parked the 300E. A blackbird zoomed in and landed on the sunroof, and began walking/hopping towards the front of the car.

When it reached the front of the roof, where the slope begins, the bird's feet slid out from under him, he fell on his tail and slid down the windshield butt first onto the wiper blade! Zoomed off in a screaming fit!!! I damn near choked to death watching. That Meguiar's stuff is REALLY slick.

HAHAHA... That's funny.

My friend has done that a couple of times... putting a water bottle on my car and it just slides and falls.. hehehe

of course that only happens after it's been waxed...

yeah that pisses me off because after one wash anything will grip the paint even though the wax is all still there, the smoothness is gone!
