Anyone know of a good wand wash in the city that allows you to pay with a card rather than coin? I tried to call the one near my house(River City Car Wash) and couldn't get a straight answer from the guy/couldn't really understand him.
Mississippi Jacks. Aka the Esso by the Tims/Wendy's on Fermor.

Mon-Thurs, 20 Minutes for 6.99 or something stupid cheap like that.

I think you can even use points towards it too.

Just curious if anyone else has used Mother's Carnuba wax? Cause I'm using it and its leaving gold specs all over my paint..
Didn't happen with Meguiar's Carnuba wax.

Gold specs, sounds like it's not being applied properly or removed properly. That's pretty easy to do with that stuff.

I've used both, and found that Mothers is more difficult to work with. It is a bitch to remove.

Meguiars wins for off-the-shelf detailing stuff IMO

Just be glad you've never worked on a Hydro site before :lol:

I drove to 3 Marks locations today trying to find new boots and pants. Polo didn't have either, but Dakota had the boots I want, but they didn't have my pants, so I had to go to the one on Kenaston... All because I don't want to wear black or brown work pants. Gotta get them Timberland boots and green double front Carhartts.

Left the windows and sunroof open. Came to the car to find an inch of water everywhere. RIP. Luckily the headliner isn't damaged, I have water proof floor mats. The only thing will be the heated seats :/ :(

Small update, replaced the knock sensor, had to take out the darn intake to do it, but its done. Found two different torque specs for it, 29ft/lbs, and 33ft/lbs. I torqued it to 33, then after i finished i found another page saying 29, so now I'm worried that its too tight and might be why I was having issues before with the old sensor. best case its works, intermediate would be I just need to loosen it, worst case would be I damaged the sensor and need another.

I also tried to install a Hondata intake spacer/gasket that supposed to help keep the intake cooler by separating the metal surfaces, it didn't fit though, and I couldn't bolt the intake back on with it in place. Kinda unhappy about that but whatever. I'll complain to hondata and see what happens..

To my knowledge(limited at best), knock sensors are a series piezocrystals and springs and stuff that are tuned to "listen" to certain frequencies. Those frequencies are your knock events. As the engine vibrates the piezo creates voltage which tells the ECU that there is knock, and to pull timing. The threads in the block are typically just to hold it and should have no effect on how it operates within a few lb/ft's of torque spec. Only a loose one would possibly cause issues.

Again, to my knowledge

@jordisonjr  Is their work expensive?
I'm caught between taking my car there or benders  :zpin:

Had the Legacy done there. Brought in a exhaust from a 02-04 WRX I believe. He used what he could and made the rest. Psitioned exactly how I wanted it, let me watch. I gave him a time frame to bang it out so I could make it to work in the AM, and they hammered it out with no corners cut. He basically said, what was your expected budget, and cut me a deal right there for a custom cat-back.

It was cheap, quick and good work, albeit steel and not stainless for the piping.

10/10
