    This mini-series should be fun and educational, and then once Susan is fixed up, you can buy her here using the eBay Motors app: so we can raise a bunch of money for charity!

    Can you do a video on how to prevent drip stains from side mirrors/door handles? The quick detailer and the clay bar help remove most of the stains but everytime it rains, i’d have to do it again. And the stains look obvious on my white car. TIA!

    I don't understand why people do it. I once washed my car and then pop'd to a mall near by my place to do some quick shopping. 1 hour later it's got a few meter (3 ft) long black sharpie marks all over from the hood to the side doors. I thank God everytime I thought about it that it was JUST SHARPIE. Btw, it came off with alcohol swaps.
