Depending on what the laws are I may take a couple long rifles and pistols maybe my bolt gun if it ever arrives.

Mikes back was out so I had no choice but to pay. I loved that car, but it was an expensive car to maintain. Tires were 1,400.00, it only ran premium and got 17mpg. Synthetic oil changes were expensive, it just really added up. My car is expensive to have stuff done also, so one had to be sacrificed for the Jeep.

I do miss the massive horsepower and the sound of the Borla exhaust though.
I did it myself only cost $160 for pads n rotors I can't wait to have srt8 problems like u lab !!! Lol

Nothing you can do for them really. Do not drink the water!

Wash it with ionized or soft water, dry it quickly and completely. Get a clay bar and some spray detailer, Mothers sells a kit that contains both. Clay bar the paint and the water spots should come off.

You may have to go to a body shop or detail shop and get a clay bar that is a bit stronger than they yellow one in the mothers kit. A blue clay bar will pull more oxidization and stuff from the paint, but if the paint is new you should be okay with the yellow.

Get a good wax to put on it after you clay bar it, the clay will remove all wax and protection from the paint and you need to replace that.

It's a day of work, but worth it. I worked in a body shop for a couple years and would bake brownies for the guys to get my car detailed. Lol, they got goodies and I got an education and clean car

We've used that on our boat. It works good, but if the spots have been baked on a while in the sun there will probably be shadowing of them. It just depends on how hard the water really is, if there was any wax or protection on the paint and how long they've been there. What a pain

Not much wax on a 2 week old jeep. You might try some white vinegar on a spot you can't see very well. Just apply it straight from the bottle. It is the same thing we do to remove hard water deposits from coffee pots and shower heads. Then rinse with bottled water and wipe dry right away. If it works then go slow and don't let the vinegar dry out. Do it in the shade.

We had a blast today. We started on Gold Mountain, then did John Bull, and finished with Holcomb Creek.

Dave was due for some work a Stan's tomorrow morning. I gotta tell you guys. JPi rocks.
Stan let us come very late off the trail and re-opened the shop so Dave would not have to drive back out in the morning. This is a shop I want to help make it. They go the extra mile. Thanks to the big guy.

Get a empty spray bottle and fill it 3/4 full of white vinager and the rest distaled water and spray on the areas where its waster spotted and wipe it off whith a clean micro fiber towl, then go back and re wax it with some good carnauba wax.its What I do with water spotted cars. If you can't get it, bring it to me. Ill hook you up!
