Yeah I love being outside and would love to do more work on cars in free time.. But finding that free time is the trick lol

Even with a great job that I'm off on weekend and work 39 hours a week salary it is still hard to have time to do work to my car lately. I would rather spend time with my wife and such.

Its a fantastic product, you just dont like it. thats like me saying Diet Coke is a terrible product becuase I like Diet Dr. Pepper.

Youre alright Mac, lots of knowledge and a damn nice car... but sometimes you just need to stay out of certain threads man.

I hear that. I've recently started filling in for our administrative secretary who's out for 8 weeks on maternity leave. So on top of my normal paperwork, my IT duties, and supervising new guys, I'm also answering phones, managing accounts, handling checks, and doing her paperwork too.

PAY ME MORE BOSS. I DESERVE IT.

Haha I hear ya man. There are benefits to being salary such as I get paid even when I'm off or have an appointment or have to take care of something. But then there is one week every 8 weeks that I'm on call haha. And salary does not do overtime haha.

It's not as temporary as people would lead you to believe!

I had to use PB Blaster to get it off of my wheels!

Of course, I forgot that I dislike black wheels, until immediately after I painted the wheels black.

Well I guess we'll see how well it comes off this weekend. I did my winter rubber in white with a few layers of gloss. About 7 layers of dip went on each wheel with 5 layers of gloss. Not ever doing white again. WAY to much brake dust from my car to keep them clean.

^ Yeah I bet that is horrible to keep clean. Just take your time when peeling to keep it in one piece and use a plastic scraper as you pull it to help remove it.

Except that it's not a terrible product when properly applied. It DOES look good when you do it right, and the fact that it's not permanent and requires no prep in the way of irreversible sanding is awesome.
