      yep keep it. a little elbow grease and some cleaner polish or something similar and that baby will shine right up.

      i used meguiars cleaner polish from work on the festiva and its like night and day. im sure most others would have similar results. gonna clay bar it next time i wash it.

      about two good hours of cleaning and polishing (by hand- buffer would be quicker if you're familiar with buffing, if not you can eat right thru your paint. i just didnt want to risk it.)
      ...but then again, i do drive a festiva

      I polished her once but just with crappy polish we had at my house - I'm going to be sure to polish her up real nice (especially if I'm taking her to Dubs on Defrost 4! )

      In other news, my dog and I had a bit part in a local news story about my company and how we can bring dogs to work. Albert is the cream French Bulldog and I'm the guy in a green shirt and jeans at my desk.

      So, while I wait for the article to load...exactly which days of the week do you take this scary beast to work again? And if you'd be so kind, what part of the house are those MkI parts stashed in again?
      (I'm betting the bedroom, I mean, who doesn't keep their stash of OEM goodness, ummm, "close" ) Our workplace has become anti-pet since we got the current boss. It is a place with no soul.

      It loaded. I got a black box. If I use my imagination, I can just see you there in that green shirt with that adorable dog of yours.

      Edit! YAY!! I got a nice female voice now!! She says "The content is currently unavailable". I hate computers.

      LOL. It took a while to load for me too, but I'm downloading a movie on the laptop and streaming one on the big screen at the same time so....

      It was a news piece on Urban Outfitters allowing dogs there, pretty neat but no huge deal. That looks like a cool place to work Joe, I like how open the floorplan is. I could NEVER work in a cube-farm.

      Yeah, the story was obviously light, and the news anchor was LAME, but it was funny to see Albert on TV.

      My leg and boot was merely a cameo.

      I got the same thing. Guess NBC won't stream to Canada. Which, considering my dealings with them at work lately, I'm very offended by.

      Speaking of work, I spilled a drink all over my $2700 work Macbook. Won't turn on. My luck has really been crap lately.
