Re: Do Not Waste Your $$$$

what do you use the engine degreaser for ??? to actually clean the engine or wheel wells ???

I don't like that crap it smells really funky ... just use mothers back to black on the plastic compartments in the engine

Re: Do Not Waste Your $$$$

What you need is the chemical guys stuff for the engine. One is the Grime Reaper for de-greasing and two is Bare Bones for the shine!

Or what works well that is OTC is Meguiars Natural Shine Protectant for the shine part and for the de-greasing is Black Magic 2 in 1 for the cleaning.

Those two products are freaking awesome, very highly recommended and worth the extra coin!

So you on to Robert Palmer now then Joe? 'I didn't mean to turn you on' (lyrics in your profile thingie) is one of his best. Although I'd say 'She Makes My Day' is my favourite track of his.

Yeah a couple months ago I ran into the video for "I Didnt Mean to Turn You On" and I was like damn this song is good then I started listening/buying his songs/records.

"She Makes My Day" from the album "Heavy Nova" is also one of my favorites.

Re: Do Not Waste Your $$$$

I grabbed from rainx bug and tar spray...followed the directions and bugs hit at 75mph and on there for half the day of driving from a trip (got 19mpg at 75mph *win*) But it works pretty good... like $4 a bottle though...
