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.
Who is Rick?
I'm just a guy who loves his garage, Audi, and detailing so much he blogs about them.
