Hello!

New guy here, trying to learn the "right" way to do things as i get older. Long time Subaru owner, who used to try and get them as dirty as possible...and at most let the rain take care of any washing. 

 

Now i'm "old", have two young kids...and have chosen a different route with my current daily/project car. Super clean this go around. 

 

I got some reading to do, but wanted say a quick,"Hello!"

 

2011 Subaru Forester XT. 2.5liter turbo, in oem form...with some additional mods over the last 3 years. Makes for a fun baby hauler...plus i still get to have fun/get my hands dirty!

I think detailing products are even more addicting than car parts because eventually youll need to refill.  :D

The mystery boxes usually happen once a month sometime two times, here is a schedule that Chris has posted, it's for fun and quite a guessing game. My advice to all is to have fun, it's a gamble you never know what you're going to get and if you don't like to gamble stay out of the casino.

Pay attention, it think they will drop today or tomorrow, also if you can grab a couple for some better chances and if there is a specific item you need or want make sure to order it, that way you won't be dissapointed.

Good Luck!
