    Yes it’s awesome, check Chemical Guys on YouTube for use with their VSS polish. I purchased the polisher on Amazon with the polishing pads package.

    Autogeek.net has a lot of good brands (including chem guys), and their forum has TONS of useful videos. They also constantly have different deals/sales going on so pay attention to those.

    I have this one; https://www.amazon.com/Griots-Garage...21-spons&psc=1

    Works great, had it for several years now. I have been using the Menzerna polishing compounds and Zaino since before the r/t was painted.

    p.s. Just used it to apply a coat of Zaino yesterday.

    Installed my R2 rear spoiler from K-Designs Wings after getting it back from the local powder coater. Also purchased and just got painted the aftermarket original style upper and lower front bumper seeing as I ruined the original years ago when the street scene full bumper skin went on.

    I still have to attach the smoked plexiglass after I chase the 6-40 threads with a tap.

    Hacked up some of the old exhaust after the X pipe. Thought that would be enough to pull the JM “down pipes” to the X out, but Evap canister, driveshaft, and trans cross member are still in the way. Decided the evap canister would be the easiest to remove (didn’t want trans fluid to clean up), still not enough clearance. Need to sawzall a little closer to the X-pipe and should have it out.
    Next set-up is getting V-bands!

    Fixed my exhaust leak, replaced driver side gasket, now just to fix my cruise and hyper flash issues.

    Still trying to figure out why my blinkers hyper flash, all my bulbs are working and the four way flashes normal speed.

    Someone recommended https://www.vleds.com/vlr-6-duotap.html (resistor fix) but i dont think thats the issue as all the signal bulbs are just plain OEM bulbs.

    Thinking about taking to shop for diagnosis, electrical shit is the worst.

    What do?

    I would look over your bulbs again. Maybe you missed one. Not sure if a double filament could have one burned out while the other isn't. I don't remember if we have any double filament bulbs but I'd check anyway.
    I've spent most of my money on women, booze, and my truck. The rest of the money was wasted!

    Ok so went and double checked my tail light bulbs, and i was wrong, i had LED's in the signal spots, so i went and bought some Sylvania silverstars 3157 to replace them and now my signals are back to blinking normal.

    Now i just have to fix my cruise control, but not in rush for that.

    Id like to open my exhaust more, i have headers with a dual in flowmaster single out, id like to upgrade to a Spintech system, thinking 6000, just not sure what to do with cats. There is no emissions testing where i live.

    But theres ways around that right :P?

    On a more serious note, spintech 6000 or 9000 with dual in, dual out, going to a side exit before the rear tires?

    On my 99, all I had to do was zip tie the after cat o2 on my frame rail. On 01+ trucks I don't think there's really a way around it but you'd have to ask your tuner. Worst case if you need the cat, you could go single 3" with a high flow cat.

    I have JM long tubes and dual 2.5" Spintech 9000s on my 99, and it's decent at idle and pretty damn loud at anything over 3k. No cats or X pipe. It's all the way out the back but there's still a bit of drone on the highway. I'm sure the 6000s would be a little quieter. Just my .02, but I wouldn't go with a DIDO, stick with dual 2.5 or single 3.
