only 4x4's they had on the lot were SLT's and BigHorns with cloth seats, normal radios, 3.55 gears and regular exhausts (not the dual exhaust bumper).

i'll sacrafice the 4x4 for all the bells and whistles this truck came with

Dang Litos. That lift looks great!!!!!! I put a killer coat of sealant on it so it'll have that mirror finish for quite a while.

Holy holograms Batman!!!!!! Nick warned me that his SRT was in bad shape, but I was still shocked at the damage that had been inflicted by the carwash / detail shop. There were the usual buffer trails, but also hundreds of thumb size spots all over the car. This was even after they tried to fix it a second time. After 9 hours of work, her luster is back!!!!.

This pic barely captures the horror

I headed back bright and early to do a two step polish on Jeff's ultra sexy 911. Although it's a small car, all those curves and tight spots were quite a challenge.

I just got a Flex buffer and love it!!!!! It's too bad that you're 250 miles away because I'd love to see if I could help you out.

Very true. I'm in Mississippi right now. I'll be driving through there in a few days but I'm in my truck. As soon as I get back I'm getting my Mtech bumpers put on, then Akyrm lip/diffuser and getting my fenders rolled a little more....then I'll be ready. I definately need a photoshoot. I absolutely SUCK with a camera. Maybe you guys will have a meet soon after I get everything done.....

At least I'll have newly painted bumpers/side skirts that you won't have to worry about. I want a new CSL bootlid, a vented hood and wrap for my roof. So I may/should only have the sides left with swirls...hopefully...

Very Nice Senor Brent. Glad to see you made it out alive from Attack of the Black Cars!
Way too much rain here lately going to send some out your way.
