I added a few new things to the garage. I picked up a foam gun that works with a regular water hose. I already own a pneumatic gun along with a gun that works with my pressure washer, but this gun will allow me to take care of smaller scale jobs more efficiently. I tried it out the other day when I was cleaning my summer wheels prior to storing them for the winter. It allows you to really control the amount of soap in the stream and it uses the soap additive frugally. I wasn't over the moon with the quality of the fit between the gun and nozzle, but I made it work with some teflon tape.
I also picked up another 50ml bottle of GTechniq EXO v2 hybrid coating/sealant. I plan on re-sealing my SQ5's paint over the Winter Break. EXO does a fantastic job of protecting my paint from the harsh winter elements. I also stocked up on Lake Country polishing pads. I snagged 4 orange and 1 yellow CCS 5.5-inchers.
I'm excited to have pulled the trigger on a new creeper stool. I have been looking for a good deal on a Craftsman one for ages, and I finally found one through a seller on eBay. The bloody exchange rate was a bit of a pill, though. I'm going to enjoy the versatility this stool will offer me in terms of height. The big creeper I use now is a bit too high for comfortably cleaning wheels and the lower portions of the body. Should be here in a week or so.
