Clay-bar'd my car,
Collinite'd my car with #845 - two coats.
Took it for a drive
Watched people's faces as they lip-synced "wow, thats a good looking convertible"

I can buy the stuff for $12 local to NC. Can ship to you for additional costs. Let me know via PM if interested. This stuff is for real. This is where it all started.

Today I decided to pull out my DISA valve because I'm a lazy **** and I haven't done it yet. So I pulled the necessary items out for ease of access, removed top screw, went to loosen bottom screw and found out IT WAS ALREADY LOOSE! Psssh... Wtf, homie? Anyways, removed the bottom screw, pulled it out, checked for resistance on the plenum, worked good, held vacuum, cleaned it up and put it back in (which took 5 times as long as it took me to get it out....... *ahem*). Anyways, it was a success. Didn't find it in pieces or loose and rattling and the pin was nice and tight. Good day.

Second is my wife's 11-Durango.

Third is parent's 08-LS-430

Man your first line of work needs to be buying and installing new headlight lenses. Those are some of the worst I've seen. Trust me. It's better looking and will replace your night driving fear with night driving confidence.
