    Re: Marring? New Black Single Stage Paint

    1200 to 2000 grit is way too big of a jump in grits, which you could be seeing the 1200 grit scratch pattern still.

    Re: Customerís Truck Arrives Muddy

    Re: Customerís Truck Arrives Muddy

    relatively new to detailing and $400 for the work done seems reasonable to me.
    i dont find anything wrong with doing a bit extra for free.

  18. Re: Switching to High Mileage Oil made a huge difference..

  19. Re: Switching to High Mileage Oil made a huge difference..

    switching to a 10w 30 might even do more. 5w is pretty thin and for colder climates. switching from 5w to 10w stopped a lifter tick in my 08 grand prix.
