Damn...nice!

And no need for the 2nd emission sticker on the windshield.

One of those things I never knew I needed. I found the plug, does it need the battery powered extractor? Link? TIA

I use Sonax and really like it. Still require some scrubbing but will remove the majority of build up.

I don't think so, it just needs the hose (I think).

Got a guy here doing more paving brick work. He was removing some topsoil and dirt to keep the new bricks even with the concrete walkway and he accidentally cut into the internet cable for the house. Not his fault. The stupid ISP buried the cable about 2" deep. So I needed to get some tools to splice it back together. Super easy to do if you have the right tools. I slid some PVC conduit onto the line and sealed the splice inside the conduit with silicon caulking. Should hold up fine until we get FTTH here next year.

I'm waffling about going out for a bottle. Didn't get much sleep last night and was on my feet most of today, so I'm beat. But a few snorts would certainly make me fall asleep as soon as I hit the pillow tonight.

Just think of it as a trip to the pharmacy for a sleep aid.

All set. I was going to grab my usual Jameson and got distracted by P12, which I haven't had in a while. So P12 it is.

Meguiar's Wheel Brightener. Just be careful. It's the most potent wheel cleaner out there. When nothing else cleans your wheels, this stuff does.

Yeah, in 40 years of car care, trying every conceivable product, I haven't found anything that is truly spray and rinse if you want your wheels truly clean. This Meguiars product is the closest thing but it is a very strong acid based cleaner. I use it on cars that are 20 years old where the wheels haven't been cleaned in that long. I would stick with Sonax, Blackfire, Pinnacle, Wolfgang or any "safe for all wheel finishes" product. Pressure washer may be another alternative.

Agree. Megs is strong but nasty shit on the wrong finish. Sonax is great though a little costly. Griots is another good safe on to try

What's the brand of the de chlorinator and RO systems? Our RO system was under the sink and bit the dust so we're drinking bottled right now. The city water in our area has extremely high chlorine.

I have used Bilberry by Valet pro for years, which can be mixed up to 50:50. It is not acidic, and is just spray on, leave 5 mins and pressure wash off. You can agitate any stubborn marks with a soft brush, but I have never had to. It is very gentle on wheels, both painted and diamond cut
