    ... I really wanna lie and say yes to sound macho and cool... but alas no

    There is a touchless car wash just down the road from me that does a good enough job until the weather warms up. Never seen one till I cam here. They are pretty neat

    I literally have all my cleaning products (I sound like a woman now) ready to go for a warm weekend.

    I'll wax her top to bottom after a good HAND wash and good clean inside. (That's when I'll do it by hand ) I find washing a car and waxing it therapeutic. When I had the E36, my friends would think I was nuts washing her every 2nd weekend (sometimes every weekend).

    Nothing beats whacking on some good tunes, having a couple of cold ones and getting stuck in imo

    That white stuff is cloud discharge once it gets excited

    $0.87 (CAD) a litre

    In all honesty, I'd rather be paying $1.20 because the car industry up here relies on the oil industry to be booming. If they are drilling for oil then the oil field workers are buying trucks like no tomorrow.


    Starting to collect tools again I had a really good collection when I was living in the UK but I gave it all to my dad (who is in heaven) when I left to go on my worldly travels.
    There was a massive sale at the local hardware store called Canadian Tire (basically a Halfords). Got a 233 piece socket set and magnetic tipped screw driver set at 75% off

    Nice one mate!
    Does that come with warranty like Halfords stuff does?

    Yeah it does. Life time limited warranty

    There were more tools on sale but the ball and chain literally chained me down by not allowing me to utilize my credit card.

    You need to import some Polish to Canada to do that for you

    Looks smart though mate, although black is possibly the worst colour you could have picked?

    I have my parents (who still live in the UK) on the case of getting me some Collimate 476, that was my favourite wax of all time. An utter cow to put on but the beading was insane.

    Yep, black is horrible... but I make do. I had a black bimmer that I got a mirror shine perfection on. I will prevail!

    If you let it go too dry you are totally fucked.
