I'd give it a shot... Rip is buried in a "Honey do" list on weekends.

I have to go with the front runners too...

Al just because he is F'n nuts :lmao: Anyone who would lift up one corner of his car cover at a time on a rainy day to detail his car deserves the job!!

And Rip just because of the shine on his car and his willingness to give out all of his secrets and his entire routine in step by step instructions. But I still think that Rip rubbed Olive Oil all over his car in that one picture where it is so shiny that it looks wet :lmao: But hey, if tha tis a detailing trick that gets those results then more power to him!! :thumb:

:dunno: Who is so obsessed with the appearance of their car to forsake all other normal activity....hmmm.:confused:

Who spends more on detailing supplies than on rent?

Who cringes at dirt (hint it is like kryptonite to him).

I too must go with Alee and Rip. For different reasons. Al is just mental, and Rip having bought a black car in Seattle, well he is mental too. :D

But they have tried almost every product/applicator out there.

And if they are the moderators hijacking will be strictly prohibited.:(

I like Rip, and I think I know Rip and I consider Rip an "old" friend on the board, but methinks Rip has an awfully high contrast setting in that picture...not that there's anything wrong with that! ;)

Yeah...she thought a bald headed Big Foot had emerged from the northwest woods and decided to eat your car with some olive oil flavoring :yikes:

Well, contrast was at 0, set it to -1(the reflectivity from the sun made the ass-end look like it wasn't there!), then used "sharpen" effects, other than that, its pretty much original!

Here's the uneditted version, see how the back end it almost whited out by the sun? I had to "darken" it slightly (-1) when I originally posted it. I might add its a 640 res pic too, looked even better in person that day! ;)

Hey, I want to throw out Nate328i and Alee for moderator suggestions, in-d-haus would be good too, but he's gotta expand out of just one product (Griots) hehe! ;)
