Interesting.

Did you know the very first bomb dropped by the Allies on Berlin in World War II killed the only elephant in the Berlin Zoo?

holy crap, I just read through most of that.

That guy is an idiot. I wonder how much that limited edition wax in the swarzovsky crystal box cost him.

I just about lost it when he did his rinse with Evian.

We know. You wouldn't have even been able to get past the part where he takes off his wheels to clean and wax them.

I've definitely waxed my wheels, although, its usually as they are already off due to other maintenance.

the sad part is, he drives that ONCE and half the work he put into it gets reversed, i could understand all that for a car show, but not on a DD

to each his own though

None are new, none have spectacular paint anyway

I do admire the guy's dedication. While I question some of the choices he made (like 300lbs of dynamat and sub/amp rack), there's no denying the outcome. But ****, what does he do for money? Having over 120 diodes changed from orange to blue? Damn.
