reminds me of a book I got for Christmas one year "101 things to do with a dead cat"! It's owner and I would be having words...

After my dear, departed "Harvey," Abby is about the coolest cat I've met. I have the shelf in the luggage area of my cabrio, and one day I'm working on the car and didn't even notice she was around. I walked around to the back of the car, and there she is, on top of the shelf, looking out the back window. She always crawls in the car if I leave a door open.

She was sleeping on the top one day and refused to get off. I started opening the top, and she just kept moving toward the rear until she was on the plastic rear edge of the cabrio top. She finally jumped off after I drove about 10 feet down the driveway.

We just moved to a different house last week and I miss her loitering around already. I wonder how much jail time I'd have to do if caught and charged with catnapping. On second thought, Abby's owner, 3 houses down, has 2 young kids, so I couldn't steal her.

(FYI... Every Griot's product I've ever used has exceeded my expectations. It's not cheap, but as I'm fond of saying here: you get what you pay for.)

I use Griot's products too and they are great! The heavy duty wheel cleaner eats up break dust in a flash and smells good too.

On a real rain day my wife and I took a ride to their shop in Tacoma WA. They have a hugh garage with several doors and they took our car in. We were in a Arrest Me Red 1988 Corvette. They used their waterless cleaner on 1/2 of the hood and wiped it off with their micro towel made for this project.

Once done they used Machine Polish #3 on the hood and I could not believe how all of the swirls were removed. I was sold! I don't use the waterless cleaner (I did buy it) because I'm able to use water but I do use most of their other products. I clay bared the Vette then used their buffer (more or less a Surhold brand) with the #3 polish and then used their paste wax and I have not had to do anything execpt wash the car with their wash with wax and the car looks like it came out off the show room.

I have not used their products on our 2009 smart. What I did use was RejeX. I applied it once after the car was 3 months old. I have not done anything execpt wash the car with Griots wash/wax and the car looks like it's still new. I'm going to apply a new coat this spring. As their ad states "Nothing sticks but the shine". It's true!

Send me your VIN and I'll see if I can find it on the EPC.
