2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon: The Sands of Time

July 18, 2011


About four years ago I moved to a cozy beach town. The best part of this house is the constant refreshing breeze that comes off the Pacific Ocean.

An unfortunate byproduct of this breeze is that every day I come out to a car covered in a light dusting of sand. I wondered if this would eventually affect the paint.

So I asked our staff. They assured me that as long as it's not a strong wind that is constantly beating against the car, it should be OK. Seagull poop is probably more harmful.

What do you think?

Here's an action-packed four-second video showing the buildup. Sorry about the noise. Someone fired up a saw just as I hit record.
