Alright ya'll.  Time for some serious business here.  

Just kidding -- I can't say that with a straight face...  [big grin]

But on the real, here's Festool Automotive Systems for Headlight Restoration using one of my favorite sander/polishers, the one and only, RO 90!



All items as listed in the video are in stock!  The MPA's can also be used on the body for paint polishing, MPA5000 will get you a real nice shine for light colors, and I even have MPA11000 to get that mirror gloss finish on dark colored vehicles.  



As noted in one of the previous videos on auto paint polish, an advantage for beginners in using a Rotex RO sander/polisher is precisely in the oscillation of the pad in Rotex mode -- helping in dissipating heat.

For us virtual guys, "Kaz", the grand visionary behind Gran Turismo


This film is about drive. It's about the passion and creative drive of Kazunori Yamauchi, the architect behind Gran Turismo's birth and breath-taking fifteen-year evolution. This film will trace his relentless willingness to challenge himself, to hold none of his past achievements sacred, and push beyond the virtual divide in his pursuit of perfection. Through the support of PlayStation, Kaz's journey has forever changed the gaming and automotive landscape and in doing so, has redefined how we perceive the relationship between art, entertainment and culture.

And, a little stroll down memory lane

For those who missed it, F1 2014 Qualifying kicks off with Hamilton taking pole with Mercedes at Melbourne in the rain!  Second goes to Red Bull, Daniel Ricciardo, Third goes back to Mercedes’ teammate Nico Rosberg.  Reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel comes in 12th, as bewildered as team mate Ricciardo.

That's one of the craziest promos I've seen.

Found this old video circa 2011 of my buddy in his Impreza STi, after I snuck past him in my Integra.  

National Auto Sport Association (NASA) High Performance Driving Event (HPDE) Groups 1 and 2 have limited passing zones, so you end up with traffic jams.  Once a gap opens up though, a string of cars will punch through.

Funny stuff happening behind me that I wasn't fully aware of.  Poor NSX...  ::)

I just can't get over how relaxed these guys are, just tapping his hands on the wheel like he's on the freeway.

I know right?  Did you see that other video that I posted with the guy flying through the Nurburgring in a hooptie?  So. Awesome.

"Your race car should drive easier than your street car."

Don't remember where that line was from, but a good reminder for us tuner boys to always stay focused on intended purpose and design.
