Default I got a new toy.

Whilst in vegas, I visited a Brookstone store (its like sharper image)

I saw an auto detail kit.. $75, not too shabby.

I took a pic of the label on the paper next to the store display, and got the item number, looked it up on the site on the laptop when i returned to the hotel.. and it said discontinued, so the next day i left the hotel and went to where i saw it to buy it.

I wouldn't have been able to return w/ it in a suit case, it'* huge. I shipped it, simply.








The thing I'm happy about is I know it will be put to use, though I wish it would've not costed as much as it did.

If it doesn't work, $75 was alot of money for me, but not that much.

eric, you probably have all that stuff already.

duster
wash mitt - dumb idea anyway
rim brush
window squeegy - never use it

send it back and get your 75 bucks back.
