Jeep looked good except for old water sports on the chrome trim strips around the windows. Surprised at how effective Meguars Water Spot Removerwas. Squirted a glob onto an old, clean, terry hand towel and rubbed it vigorously onto the strip. Wiped it vigorously off with a clean area of the towel and the spots were gone!

Yeah, most LED's have to be plugged in a certain way. Learned my lesson with tail light upgrades.

Happened to me 2x when I was in a rush. Luckily I was able to catch it both times before anything happened - I just looked pretty stupid trying to half hop back into my Jeep as it putted away.

Got Nitto Terra Grappler G2 installed went from 265/50/20 to 275/55/20. Looks great, much beefier, fills in wheel wells so much better.

I did the same thing over the weekend. Gave my GC a full detail but got water spots on the windows and the chrome trim. I used 1:1 white vinegar and distilled water and it all came off. This was my first time using this method, I was very much impressed it worked as well as it did. Microfiber towel to wipe it and a waffle weave microfiber to take care of the streaks. Worked like a champ.

Vinegar works pretty good as well, windex sells a diluted version that works, but like meguirs have to work it in abit
Edit...sorry didnt see post above, other than using it straight up takes some grunt work out of it...pour it on a paper towel and rubs right off
