headlight buff/polish is easy peasy. get 1500 or 2000 grit and a soft pad, and buy one of those Mothers headlight kits sold at Wal-Mart for like 15 bux. Throw the little thing in a drill, and polish that **** in there at like 1000rpm never stopping in 1 spot too long.

Just did a 2 sets last week: takes all of 15-20 min and I'm slow

By the way: your avatar fills me with uncomfortable awkwardness every time I see it. And not in a good way.
You love it. I was tempted to replace it with the one with the video camera bogs.

Subbed for the awesomeness.
waist? no it's not terribly tiny. it's the way the wallet sits in my pocket. the corner of it wears through my pocket and whatever's under it. Some of my old pants have holes thru the pocket.

Bogz looks like an inverted ***** and the fact that I recognize that makes me uncomfortable in my workplace. Stop sexually harassing me.

Also, maybe you should rethink the upside/downside of your stainless steel wallet.

you've thread (scrappy) jacked me good.

bogs will remain because he's obscurely disgusting.

also the original stainless wallet eventually cracked (it's VERY thin and I guess you can't carry 10 $1 bills without stressing it) and I got it replaced with a leather-covered stainless wallet. It's been much kinder to pants and seats.

Sidenote: Stewart/Stand has redesigned the fold hinge to be more forgiving of ... strippers I guess so it has a better bend life.

here is the one I rock now:

Note the "thickness" dimension of 0.188". oh yeah. eat your heart out George Costanza!
