    So Xmas came early around here. I'm going to ATL for xmas to my brother's place so my gf and I exchanged gifts early. Anyway, she got me a couple of 360 games and also a $75 gift card to autogeek! My parents bought me a new Makita 9227. Anyway, just trying to decide on what to get from AG now, not sure what to get and I've been thinking about placing an order for a while. Just thought I'd post. Merry Xmas to all my autopian friends.

    Or 6 bottles of Meg's 21 2.0. A darn good sealant.

    How about some of the Meg's new #205 polish? Pads?

    Labster, good for you. Sounds like you made out pretty well thanks to your thoughtful family. Been pretty dead around here, haven't had to worry about keeping product in stock :hs:

    Happy Holidays Detail Crew!

    I think I've work 6 or 7.....and they were not fun!
    It got down to 11* here night before last and the windchill was 4*.
    High today is 39*. I have a ton of customers waiting and wanting but that doesn't pay the bills. Oh well, they are giving us some good weather next week. Will have to see.

    To all here.........Merry Christmas!!!

    I have done some 50.00 ones. 4 this weekend. Better than nothing I guess!

    Funny thing is, most never end up using them. I sold 15 last year and saw only 5 get used. Crazy!

    I just sold 4 gift certificates for $75 each. They all tell me they're for their wives for the spring. Kinda curious how many will lose them or whatnot.

    Crappy weather here in AZ, too. Maybe it's just a good time to invest in family and ourselves? :bigthumb:

    Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Well my parents backed out on buying the Makita but they did give me a $200 gift card to AG as well and my grandma cut me a check for $500 for Xmas and graduation. With the 20% off deal at AG right now I'm leaning towards a bunch of pads, M105, new Opti-Polish and some other random bits here and there...hahahaha...spending spree...
