Thats funny, I keep seeing Brazilian Wax on my DW's CC reciepts, yet the MH does not appear to be any shinier.

I believe it is for shining the underneath of the bus. Have you looked down there?

I was looking down there today. Nothing but rust and old lube.

Can't afford a professional, maybe I can get some guy hanging out in front of the HD to do the heavy buffing.

I finally asked for her Brazilian Wax receipts. I found out and it appears nothing had been done yet. I don't know what she is up to, something about a surprise. Hopefully we will have pictures of the surprise. She said that she was storing up supplies. not only did she have the wax, she had a good supply of 1200 thread count microfiber, feather dusters and silk buffing material. She also has some latex protective gear, different lubes, polishes, and some new battery powered buffers (sic). ( they misspelled buffers and wrote "Buggers" by some third world English sweatshop character who can't spell, so we fixed it with a sharpie.) and some that plug in to help do the Brazilian wax. Said when she was done with the wax that I could eat off it. Before or after she lets my friends drive it. I don't know, last time there was a lot of oil and lube, lint, chunks of a stinky mud in the back. I guess she knows more bout this type of maintenance. Man, do I got a lot to learn. Guess it is time for a cocktail, thinking about this gives me a headache. Good Night, Jeff
