      most people in detroit don't pay at all. it is not a joke when i tell you that 40-50% of people who live within the city of detroits limits DO NOT carry any insurance at all. if you can't afford 100...

      Detroit is a perfect storm of high insurance rates. Unlimited medical benefits to those injured, high rates of uninsured, no fault, extremely high rates of comp claims, etc. It sucks and truly keeps...

      Ive seen guys wash the car then foam gun panels before claying while the car is still wet. Car wash soap is far cheaper than quick detailer or clay lube. Best of luck.

      that would work well. as a far easier solution you could run 4 45w CFLs (these draw 45w, not 45w equivalent) on two 45* splitters at each socket. the 4 pack runs 41 dollars plus about 5 bucks in...
