ive changed most everything i can to fluorescent of one kind or another, but they arent very good for places that are constantly turned off and on so i have old filament bulbs in my bathroom and mud room(entry/drink fridge). ive been thinking of trying leds for those, do they turn bright faster than the cfl'*? i also put in a motion detection switch in the entry room so it doesnt get left on on accident, with kids running around and when we have people over, getting stuff out of the fridge

The LEd'* are instant on. no delay to brightness. Have not tried led with motion detect.
If your areas are regular switched w/ no dimmers, you could also try these new CFL'*, I got some yesterday....
My old CFL were up to a full second delay to get something happening.
I put this brand in a 13 watt in daylight under the stove light and I am so pleased with it.
Talking about instant on (at room temp) and white/bright..for larger room try the 23 watt +...

Detailed the GTP pretty good recently.











You can see how dirty the CC is from the dirt roads around here. Not looking forward to that on this car.

To day was under hood detail. A lot of cleaning, and then I decided I needed to polish something.

A lot of ick
