Like we talked about before.....knowing you did it right the first time is the best "piece of mind".

Great shop and I know you will be extremely happy!

Yeah theyre real good as I know from the Corvette forum but I have no personal experience with them. Spoke to Glenn down there quite a few times and hes a straight shooter. They started the work yesterday and he said itll be done by end of week then shipped back to me in about 3 or 4 days. Vette Drs to install and tune the trans and hopefully Ill be back on the road the end of this month or beginning of June. Im chomping at the bit with the nice weather here.
Thanks for the advice, encouragement and well wishes. :cheers:

I've got a few friends I know that have had work by them. And most of the mod shops around here use them exclusively. Anyone I've ever spoken with have been very satisfied.

And most of these guys are tracking their cars hard each week if that tells you anything!

Lol....I noticed. But I'm a boring guy and found a brand I've stuck with for the last few years that has served me well.

If I find something that works for my goals.... and my body tolerates it well.....I stay with it.

Old habits I guess!

Growing the mo wouldn't be hard. Making it dark colored might take some cheating!

I used the spot spray dilution on a few areas on Tuesday evening. Every time I walk the dog, I check up to see if I can see where I sprayed/didn't. I believe I can see some of the l'il bastards looking a bit lighter but it's hard to tell in some areas.

This weekend, I'll run some Q4 over some of the adjacent areas to see which works better. Then there's the salt and vinegar that'll be going down in some spots...

Got my dedicated lawn sprayer for herbicides. I'll probably use my backpack sprayer for any blanket critter sprays since I have some liquid bifenthrin.

Added a sticker to the weed killing sprayer to help differentiate.

It takes a while to work because of the method it uses, give it a bit longer then other chems to see results. You don't see it used much commercially due to that reason, every one expects instant.

Speaking of instant, I see a lot of posts on here where people just keep putting fert down if the lawn isn't green in a week or two. Most products used are slow release so if they keep applying it thinking that fertilizer is magic it will catch up to them eventually. It will also make the pH go too high in the long run.

Q4 is a good product but what I like and use on clients lawns is T-Zone, works great! Price is insane low too. T-Zone is very low odor compared to Q4.

Yeah, I know. I'm just excited to see the little bastards go pale. Thanks for the tip on T-Zone. I got a gallon of the Q4+ last year (maybe fall of 2017) when it was on sale. I doubt I'll finish using it before its shelf life is up.
