    Dude that the auto detailing place wanted $60 each to do the same job.
    I said get the fuck out of here.

    Now they look brand new. Juan has another satisfied customer.

    Didn't see an appropriate tag for this thread, that's why I did not select one.

    Nothing better than getting what you wanted without someone totally fucking ripping you off.

    Screw the detailing guy.

    I know he's got a business and employees and all, but $60.00 each?

    Come the fuck on!

    They're gonna be fogged up again in a couple months. Worse than before.

    Yeah I went on Rock Auto and saw I can buy replacement headlamp kits for $40.00 each.

    The bitch is paying labor to have them installed.

    I saw a tutorial on youtube how to do it yourself, but knowing me, i'd fuck up
    the clips that partially hold it in place and then i'd be fucked.

    So a $15.00 temporary fix was worth it.

    Nah. Juan takes the money for the wash, puts it in the machine, selects your wash and gives you
    your change. Then guides your vehicle into the wash.

    Meanwhile hes making $15.00 every 10 minutes doing headlights in the parking lot.
    Sweet deal if you ask me.

    That works great for flash light lenses, too.

    Yeah, $15 is a great deal.
    I hear that you can clearcoat them to make it last longer, but I haven't tried it. The newer kits have stuff you schmear on but you'll have to keep re-appling it.

    My car is 4 years old and I'm starting to see a couple foggy spots. Fucking shit sucks!
