Dawn of a new hope -

One of my blog follower has been complaining of all his ride - that is full of swirls. every time when he call or SMS me he would says " I cant stand my rides any more - it is full of swirls & i cant trust any northern detailer"

a date set, while he is a conference, he left his ride to be detail
