Are you sure, that's enough time?

What if I come at 16:00? Will that be even better. Actually, the mrs and I are going out for dinner, thought I just drop Ralf off at your place for an overnighter and pick him up bright and early in the morning. Wouldn't want you to rush the job...I know these things take time.

Once I do AJ's car, I'll know exactly how long it takes for a E90. Since I failed to wake up this morning, I'm detailing my dad's car tomorrow morning at 4.

I haven't gotten it yet. Is it cheaper to get it at Lowe's? How much did you pay for the pads and where did you get them?

AJ, you're right...looks like a lot of rain for Fri, Sat and Sun (esp Sat) thanks to TS Beryl. David, you might want to reconsider appointments for Sat...looks to be an all-day thunderstorm.

After the zaino last saturday, I have not taken the car out of the garage.
Such hard work, I just don't want any rain or dirt on it.

I got it at Lowes for $110. Pads I got from wolfgangcarcare.com (it's basically autogeek under a different name). I also ordered the backing plate there. I got the 6", but you might prefer the 5" (more buffer room). Order the 6.5" pad kit, and some extra yellows.

Use the discount "autopia" and also they have free shipping for orders over $75.

I need to rent an indoor washing facility. It didn't rain two days ago when they said it would. So...we'll see.

Winter is the best time to detail...provided there's no snow.

Why are you so against putting on a car cover?
