I added a new polishing tool to my arsenal. I picked up a Rupes LHR75E mini polisher. This will compliment the Flex PE-8 polisher I currently own. The PE-8 is a rotary machine and it does tend to cause holograms, but this new Rupes is a random orbital so it won't be as tricky to use. I'll hold on to the little Flex because I can use it with a 1, 2, and 3-inch pad. This is great for getting to the tricky areas. The bulk of my work is handled by the big Flex 3401. I'm looking forward to putting my new toy to use once I do my big Spring detail in a month or two.
Some people are savvy negotiators. Some are not. I have never considered myself a shrewd negotiator. In fact, I have often joked to friends that my middle name is "Full Price". Recently, a forum member at Audi World asked for some advice regarding negotiating the purchase of a new car. Audi World member "plat27265" was first to respond and his advice was awesome. I asked his permission to share his response here on my blog, and he was cool with it. So, here's what he had to say about negotiating with a dealer on a new car. Brilliant stuff.
I ordered some Husky liners because I was frustrated with my WeatherTech mats. The mounting point on the WT's was allowing water to seep through which was leaving my carpets stained. These new Husky liners are one piece so, as long as the tray doesn't fill so much it floods, it should prevent water from staining my carpet. Instead of mounts, they use sharp spikes to anchor themselves in place. After a few months, I'll share my impressions. I'll keep the WeatherTechs and perhaps use them in the summer. Until then, here's some photos.
RAD GARAGE is my personal detailing theatre. I am a teacher who finds immense pleasure in completing deeply therapeutic, thorough and highly satisfying detailing projects in my residential garage. I have converted my suburban double car garage into a world class detailing environment and I enjoy caring for my own car and select cars belonging to others. The garage and the work I complete in it have allowed me to connect with other detailing enthusiasts from around the world.
Carzilla is a local detailing store that caters to the North American community of professional and enthusiast detailers. I have been a longtime customer and I am fortunate to call the owner a friend. Besides stocking a vast quantity of top quality detailing products, the owner has supported various garage and detailing projects of mine over the years.
