    Off-Topic Forum
    I need one. I have used Chemdry, and while I like the kid/pet friendliness, it really didn't get out the tough stains from my two labs. We've got the typical puke, mud, mulch grind, pee (one lab is a pup) and need to really get tough....even if family and dogs have to vacate the house for...

  5. Let's rewire my HID lights.

    B5 Garage
    Okay. So I got a pair of 6000K HIDs, which look spectacular (waits for firestorm). However! By installing these I sacrificed having daytime running lights.
